Core Science
Physical & Life Sciences for Grades 5 8

What a marvelous supplemental science curriculum for those of you teaching multiple students in grades 5 through 8. The Core Science's full-color 96-page illustrated instruction manual focuses on 45 themes to reinforce the science concepts your child should be learning.

Topics include:
Mass and volume, the human body, chemical reactions, soil analysis, optics, rockets, electricity, circuits and more all at three different levels of proficiency easy, moderate, and advanced.

45 Topics with three experiments each:
This gives you the option of doing three related, and increasingly difficult experiments a week. For example Track A in experiment 3, which involves changes in mass and temperature, starts off with a child-pleasing look at the varying weight of a soaking gummi bear. Track B of the same experiment requires charting air, water and soil temperatures for 12 hours and Track C examines what happens when an effervescent tablet is added to a full glass of water.

Experiment 11, air pressure and vacuums, begins with inflating a balloon with an effervescence tablet, then track B tries to do the same with a hot and cold bottle and finally track C investigates how to get a hard-boiled egg into a narrow- necked bottle without damaging it.

You can relegate each track to a particular child or children. You can even have your child do a different track each year for the next three years, but I suspect that once your family starts to use this curriculum, no one will want to stop at one experiment a week!

A convenient 48-page workbook has space to record results for all three levels of the 45 experiments and additional information to complement what your child is studying.

Correlated to National Science Education Standards
Regardless on how you tackle it you will be glad to know that Core Science has been correlated to National Science Education Standards for middle school level physical and life science, and will give your children necessary familiarity with commonly used science terms, methods, and tools.

Core Science comes with virtually everything you will need to complete the experiments. You will need to supply some common household items and 2 "C" batteries.
