Inquiry in Action and ?

I am considering using Inquiry in Action for next year’s science (2nd and a k tagalong). It is recommended as a supplement rather than a core. Has anyone used this? If so, what did you use as a text?


I am considering Real Science 4 Kids, Chemistry, pre-level 1, student text only. It seems to get mixed reviews on this board. Would it be too basic for our needs? My children love science but we have not done much with chemistry beyond what they’ve picked up from Magic School Bus DVDs and Let’s Read and Find Out Science titles.


I’m also considering What’s Chemistry All About? The busy feel of the pages concerns me though.


What else might interest us? We need secular resources. We prefer mostly text with a few relevant illustrations. We are not fond of graphic novels or overly busy pages. Something along the lines of the Hawkings’ George trilogy or Sassafras Science would be great.
