5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful Overall Science Book October 3, 2012
Format:Paperback
Purchased this to supplement our Homeschool curriculum, and it's been a great book for us. The book isn't focused on any one science subject, but rather covers a whole range of various science questions, discoveries, inventions, inventors/scientists, and experiments involving specific discoveries and inventions. What's especially helpful is the list of important dates at the beginning of each month which covers anniversary dates for discoveries, scientists' and inventors' birthdays, and hallmark days in science. It's very easy to incorporate the experiments, which are easy and user friendly, and the worksheets provided. I would highly recommend this book to anyone who would like a supplement to their regular science curriculum, or for anyone who would like some "starting points" to create their own science curriculum.
