Your young student will be drawn to science and develop a strong foundation in the subject with this stellar curriculum that relies on exciting, hands-on, educational activities. With important concepts for physics and chemistry shown in easy-to-understand ways, students will study magnets, light waves, chemical elements, different forms of energy, and more by using bubbles, salt, and other common household items. Science + activities = learning fun!
Multi-level Quiz & Test Options: The Science Starters curriculum allows multi-age students between grades 3 to 8 to be taught at the same time. For your convenience we have included two different levels of quizzes and final exams so that you can choose the ones most appropriate for your student’s age and educational abilities. Suggested levels include:
Level 1 - Grades 3 to 4
Level 2 - Grades 5 to 6
Workflow: Students will read two pages in their book and then complete one page of the Student Journal. Extra Projects are also assigned. Quizzes are given at regular intervals.
Lesson Scheduling: Space is given for assignment dates. There is flexibility in scheduling. While each quarter has 45 days of assignments, they do not have to be given M-F. Some students may prefer to do more assignments each day, allowing for breaks on other days. Each week listed has five days but due to vacations the school work week may not be M-F. Please adapt the days to your school schedule. As the student completes each assignment, he/she should put an “X” in the box.
