  1. So I was at a convention this weekend and listened to Shirley Solis of Lifetime Books and Gifts (academic CMer). She is just a treasure! Anyway, I shared with her how I just dislike Science and she said she just uses Living books like Biogrpahies, or things like the Nature Readers, or Story of Inventions...and she uses the Handbook of Nature Study as a spine..but all in a relaxed way. Her oldest son started high school using Apilogia Amd he is doing great- and all they ever did was living books. I'm not a super driven academic WTMer...I'm kinda relaxed about it. So I'm Not concerned with being as academic "as possible" in this area. But I'd like to hear from those who have tried this, if it was stressful for you to always be on the lookout for more books...I'm already on the lookout for books for two kids, myself, and history...lol (I don't like Sonlight's books in this area..I really would prefer mostly bios and story books related to Science.)
  2. I'd like to gather books to put on our must read list for science. I prefer living books to textbooks. Please tell me about your favorites for Pre-K to 8. :)
  3. I am in the initial planning stage of putting together a "History of Science" course for my 13 yo son (entering 8th grade). This will be more of a history course rather than a science course as I am planning to incorporate timeline work and writing into it. Joy Hakim's The Story of Science books will serve as the spine. I have a couple of ideas for other readings, too, but I need help choosing 4-6 scientist biographies to add into the plans. When I started making a list of possible biographies, I realized that there is quite a bit from which to choose. What are your favorite scientist biographies? Reading levels could range from upper elementary through high school. Also...if anyone has ideas for specific "science history" writing topics or sources, I'd love to hear about them. My son is going to be using MCT's Essay Voyage next year; I have seen several writing assignments in it that could be used with this course, but I'm always open to other ideas. Thanks in advance, Jetta
  4. **I made a book collection over at LibaryThing (tags to come, only those I own are tagged currently). There are so many titles the list is unwieldy in its current format here.** http://www.librarything.com/catalog.php?viewstyle=5&view=nmoira&collection=133922&shelf=list&sort=dewey This is sorted by Dewey Decimal classification. Unfortunately it is not one of the default fields for visitors. If you are a LibraryThing member (free), you can customize the fields all you like. Otherwise, you can still sort by any of the fields visible to you. There is more than one "Style," each with different default fields. All new books will be added on LibraryThing only. ================== I'm looking for some good secular science/nature reads for the next year for DD the Elder. Memoirs and personal musing are OK if they don't get too "boring" in content for a 9yo. :tongue_smilie: Also nothing with gloom and doom as its central focus; I need her to be able to sleep at nights. I'm holding off on James Herriot as they'll be part of a literature study in another year or so. I need about 45 books (one a week for a school year, with the occasional week off), and I'm guessing at least an extra 20 beyond so to give some choice. ETA: We're now looking at 90, with a buffer of 20 or 30) So far, though obviously nature heavy at this point, I've got: Bats Sing, Mice Giggle: The Surprising Science of Animals' Inner Lives The Sound of a Wild Snail Eating (I have yet to pre-read this) Never Cry Wolf The Inner World of Farm Animals That Quail, Robert And a handful of graphic novels. I'd love to hear about your favorites. :) ============================================================== ETA: Added from posts below... Michael Collier's Over the Rivers, Over the Mountains, and Over the Coasts Snake Pits, Talking Cures and Magic Bullets Hoaxed!: Fakes and Mistakes in the World of Science Fantastic Feats and Failures Dyes Cave Sleuths Guinea Pig Scientists: Bold Self-Experimenters in Science and Medicine Shipwreck at the Bottom of the World: The Extraordinary True Story of Shackleton and the Endurance Adaptation A Field Guide to Bacteria Arnie, the Darling Starling The Mind of the Raven A Girl of the Limberlost The Evolution of Calpurnia Tate Life on Earth and Beyond: An Astrobiologist's Quest Cool Stuff Exploded Plate Tectonics The Disappearing Spoon: And Other True Tales of Madness, Love, and the History of the World from the Periodic Table of the Elements If Stones Could Speak: Unlocking the Secrets of Stonehenge Every Bone Tells a Story: Hominin Discoveries, Deductions, and Debates The Cats of Roxville Station Wicked Plants: The Weed That Killed Lincoln's Mother and Other Botanical Atrocities 1001 Inventions That Changed the World Girls Who Looked Under Rocks: The Lives of Six Pioneering Naturalists Dr. Jenner and the Speckled Monster: The Discovery of the Smallpox Vaccine Adaptation (above) comes from the Science Concepts series of books from Twenty First Century Books. All that I've seen so far look good: Amazon search results Each book deals with a single topic such as photosynthesis, cells, energy, symbiosis and food chains. The Flying Circus of Physics Mad About Physics: Braintwisters, Paradoxes, and Curiosities The Illustrated Longitude: The True Story of a Lone Genius Who Solved the Greatest Scientific Problem of His Time The Living Year by Richard Headstrom (changes through the seasons) The Year of the Turtle by David M. Carroll Wild Season by Allan W. Eckert (narrative food chain--highly recommended but warning, bunnies get eaten!) The Edge of the Sea by Rachel Carson Discovering Amphibians: Frogs And Salamanders of the Northeast by John Himmelman (we're in the NW, so skipping this one) Discovering Moths by John Himmelman Nim's Island Island of the Blue Dolphins The Cay (some survival stuff, mostly about a boy's hatred of black people, but the setting is interesting) Sequels to My Side of The Mountains--Frightful's Mountain and ... On the Far Side of the Mountain Freckles, the prequel of Girl of The Limberlost--it's more a setting than a naturey story Secrets of Vesuvius There are some other interesting looking books in the series, including: Buried in Ice (the Franklin Expedition); The Lost Wreck of the Isis (ancient Roman ship); Into the Mummy's Tomb (Tutankhamun) Continued in post #3 below...
  5. We are using High School Biology in Your Home this year for my 8th and 9th grader. (A research based program). We have a variety of reference books, but I am looking for some interesting books written on any aspect of Biology. My oldest is more of a literary/artistic type and the scientific language and dry writing is throwing her for a loop. I am looking for something that explains clearly, is well written and somewhat literary in style. Any recomendations? It need not cover all aspects of Biology as they are looking up their information all over the place. I'd just like some resources around that are interesting, accessible and thourough. Any ideas?:grouphug:
