Recently, I was asked to review Elemental Science, which is a year-long science curriculum written by homeschool mom, Paige Hudson.
We chose to use Elemental Science, Biology for the Grammar Stage. This is intended for grades 1-2 and is a 36 week course, including study of
- the human body
The curriculum lays out for the parent/teacher, in step by step format, what is to be done each day. The worksheets and pictures are included and may be printed out.
Here, you see my 2nd grader studying and writing about walruses and other mammals. She enjoyed classifying the animals and recording what she learned about each one.
She also did an experiment wherein a rubber band was placed around her fingers and she tried to remove it without using her hands. This was to show how pollution can affect animals.
This Elemental Science curriculum is perfect for the parent who wants daily lesson plans already written for an entire year of science. And if you like the idea of your child doing
daily writing activities
learning more about science
you will love Biology for the grammar stage.
The books that are to be used with this curriculum are
- Kingfisher First Encyclopedia of Animals
- First Human Body Encyclopedia
- Plant Parts (The Life of Plants)
- Janice VanCleave's Science Around the World
- Janice VanCleave's Biology For Every Kid
(I found some of these on my bookshelves and at our local library. (Fortunately, I'm not banned there. It was touch and go for a while!)
This Elemental Science Grammar Level Biology ebook combo, which includes student workbook and teacher's guide with quizzes sells for $16.50, but you can win one FREE by entering below!
