Elementary Science in K-8 Curriculum Board Posted February 9 · Report reply Coming back to this thread, because doing a survey of science is something that's always on the back of my mind. Not in the immediate plans for us, but probably at some point a little bit further down the road. So, anyway, since my last post I came across a resource that I'd thought I should put out there. I consider it too expensive for what it is, but if you have access to it via your library, I think it's worth checking out. And definitely don't buy the Physical Science set at full price, as it would be much cheaper to buy the books individually on Amazon, especially if you go for the paperbacks. Anyway, here are the links. Building Blocks of Physical Science by Joseph Midthun: https://www.worldbook.com/products/building-blocks-of-science-books. I got some of them used on eBay, and I like them. Will probably try to get the rest of the books from this set at some point. My son was immediately drawn to them, and they are a pretty good introduction to a variety of topics. Not quite as low-level and thorough as I'd like, but definitely solid. We read Magnetism and Sound so far. Maybe PM me if you'd like to see what they look like inside and have trouble finding samples online. The same author has also written a bunch of Building Blocks of Life Science books: https://www.worldbook.com/products/building-blocks-life-science and https://www.amazon.com/Building-Blocks-Life-Science-2/dp/0716628201, but we haven't tried those yet. Another thing that I've started doing is re-writing some of Feynman's "Easy Pieces". They are indeed easy conceptually, but my son finds the language a bit too hard at this point. Might work for a slightly older or more advanced child, though. Not quite the survey you'd like, but just so wonderful, and surprisingly accessible. Also, not sure if your son has read George's Secret Key to the Universe series, but we just discovered them, and my son has devoured them. A beautiful intro to many astronomy concepts.
