About Real Science-4-Kids Building Blocks of Science
Kids ask real science questions. Building Blocks of Science enables them to discover real science answers. Because science disciplines are so interlaced, to learn one subject requires a foundational understanding of another. Building Blocks of Science addresses this by introducing students to the five core scientific disciplines of chemistry, biology, physics, geology, and astronomy.

With Building Blocks of Science, students learn science in a sequential and logical order, beginning with basic building blocks of science and expanding on these as they advance in grade level. Hands-on experiments for each chapter encourage critical thinking, experimentation, and creativity.

Exploring the Building Blocks of Science is a year-long graded program for grades 1-7 covering all five core disciplines each year. It’s based on an upward-spiral teaching method where disciplines are repeatedly visited and built upon over months and across grades, which is proven to lead to better long-term mastery of facts and concepts.

Building Blocks of Science is written to accommodate both secular and Christian homeschoolers. The publisher, Real Science-4-Kids, has received several awards, including the Practical Homeschooling Reader Awards. The study bundles contain a student textbook, teacher’s manual, and laboratory notebook, as well as printable lesson plans, quizzes, and a study notebook. See our optional lab kit here.

What Topics are Covered in Book 7?
Exploring the Building Blocks of Science Book 7 Student Textbook has 22 chapters and introduces students to foundational scientific concepts and terminology presented clearly and in a manner that’s easy for kids to understand, giving kids a solid base on which to build a further study of science. This yearlong curriculum contains four chapters each of five scientific disciplines: chemistry, biology, physics, geology, and astronomy, as well as an introduction to the material covered and a concluding chapter, for a total of 22 chapters. The many graphics in this full-color textbook reinforce the concepts presented and make the book fun for kids and teachers alike to read.

Some of the topics covered are: chemistry—mixtures and separating mixtures, organic chemistry, polymers, and biological polymers; biology—types of plants, the chemistry of photosynthesis, and plant structure and reproduction; physics—chemical energy, electrostatics, electrodynamics, and magnetism; geology—the hydrosphere, cycles and ecology in the biosphere, the magnetosphere, and Earth as a system; astronomy—galaxies, the Milky Way Galaxy, and the birth and death of stars.

This Student Textbook is accompanied by Exploring the Building Blocks of Science Book 7 Laboratory Notebook (experiments) and Exploring the Building Blocks of Science Book 7 Teacher’s Manual. If you would like a convenient, time-saving way to get nearly all of the materials you will need for the experiments, we now offer a lab kit! This lab kit is already assembled with virtually every non-household item the curriculum requires, so you won't have to go searching for elusive components.

Pre-requisites:
This is an advanced science text and students should already be familiar with The Periodic Table, the atom as a fundamental building block of matter, protons, neutrons, electrons, electron bonding, chemical reactions, force, energy, work, inertia, momentum, taxonomy of living things, the cell as a fundamental unit of life, the basic structure of Earth, the difference between stars and planets, the solar system, and galaxies. If your student is not familiar with these topics, please purchase Book 5 or Book 6, or the Focus On Middle School individual subjects before using this text.
