Exploring the Building Blocks of Science Book 6
Exploring the Building Blocks of Science 6 Student Textbook has 22 chapters. It gives students an in-depth look at technology in science. That includes
- an overview of the chemistry laboratory and accompanying equipment
- the biology laboratory, and modern experimental methods
- mathematics in physics
- how technology is used to map earthquakes
- modern telescopes
- how technology has advanced global collaborative projects and much more.
Students begin the open inquiry with suggested questions found in the Teacher's Manual, which also has directions for guiding the experiments. The Laboratory Notebook contains 22 experiments that explore topics covered in the Student Text.
- making measurements in chemistry
- exploring acids and bases
- using a light microscope
- preparing and using agar plates
- applying physics to sports,
- exploring cloud formation
- using a star map, and much more.
Each book has 4 chapters of each of the 5 core science subjects (chemistry, biology, physics, geology, and astronomy) and an introductory and a concluding chapter for 22 chapters. 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 search for elusive components.
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, learning 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 fundamental 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 program for grades 1-7, covering all five core disciplines. It's based on a spiral teaching method where subjects are repeatedly visited and built upon over months and across grades. This has 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, laboratory notebook, printable lesson plans, quizzes, and a study notebook. See our optional lab kit here.
Building Blocks of Science Laboratory Notebook
The Building Blocks Laboratory Notebook includes the 5 core science subjects (chemistry, biology, physics, geology, and astronomy) integrated into one softcover notebook.
The Laboratory Notebook is meant to accompany the Building Blocks Student Textbook and Building Blocks Teacher’s Manual
for one year of study.
There are (22) experiments in each Laboratory Notebook that align to the chapters in the Student Textbook.
There are also (22) optional “Just for Fun” experiments.
Students perform their own experiments and collect their own data.
Students record their data directly in the Lab Notebook.
