    All You Need to Teach Basic Chemistry
    Chemistry for younger children--while I've loved the idea, until now it has been impossible to find an adequate resource. Christian Kids Explore Chemistry is all you need to teach a basic chemistry course to children in grades four to eight.

    Thirty Weeks of Thorough and Engaging Lessons
    The 384-page book explains chemistry terms, notations, and rules, but even more appealing than the engaging text are the hands-on activities that include building atomic and molecular models, hunting for acids and bases, and evaluating products for macromolecules. I am quite impressed with the scope of this book and believe that children who master these concepts before high-school chemistry will have a definite edge. For grades four to eight.

    About the Christian Kids Explore Series
    The Christian Kids Explore series contains several thirty- to thirty-five-week courses that are based on a classical and "living books" approach. Each of the straightforward lessons builds upon the last, allowing the child to develop a thorough command of the concepts. The age-appropriate, hands-on activities and experiments are not only fun, but they will actually help your child gain a solid grasp of the concepts. Each book is incredibly user-friendly, supplying suggestions for extra reading and even recommendations of topic-appropriate videos.

  • Thirty lessons in five units
  • Reproducible worksheets
  • Hands-on activities
  • Chemistry terms, notations, and rules
  • Unit reviews
  • Supplemental book list
  • Coloring pages
  • Organized and easy-to-use

    Great for Beginners! January 12, 2015
    Reviewer: Christine  
    A perfect introduction into Chemistry! We bought this for our 10 year old and are glad we did! Lessons are well portioned and easy to understand. We enjoy the experiments and everything needed is already around the house for the most part. Worth the buy!

    Chemistry March 20, 2009
    Reviewer: Dawn DiPasquale from Spencerport, NY United States  
    This was a good basic introduction to the elements of chemistry.  This will be a good foundation to move to higher levels.  May be advanced for 9 - 11, depending on your learner.  A good start for my 7th grader.

    This item was well worth every penny November 5, 2008
    Reviewer: Tara M. from Saint Clair, Michigan  
    My children looked forward to doing their Chemistry lesson and oftentimes wanted to do two or three lessons per gathering.  This item was well worth every penny I spent on it.

    Easy for us to use and understand November 4, 2008
    Reviewer: Chris K. from Burley, Idaho  
    The Christian Kids Explore Chemistry was easy for us to use and understand.  My 17 yr old and 10 yr old sons learned this together.  The lessons gave us just enough information to absorb and retain.  We had a great time doing the lessons together. Chemistry can be a tough subject and not having any experience in it, we appreciated the simple format and the incremental bit of information given in each lesson so we could really learn. The hands-on experiments helped to retain the information as well.

    The perfect inbetween course October 17, 2008
    Reviewer: Sharon S. from Williamsburg, MI  
    I really like the way that the book is laid out ~ very easy to understand and use.  My daughter likes the conversational yet to the point presentation, and the fact that it's all that I need to help her explore and understand the subject.  In addition, the resource list is wonderful, easy to implement and plan for since they've correlated it with the chapters covered. As a bonus, the website is well designed with easily accessible updates, extensions and corrections available even with dial up! We've found it the perfect inbetween course before high school chemistry ~ a very enjoyable and not overwhelming introduction!  She's looking forward to high school chem!
