Book Description

December 1, 2007 1588342549 978-1588342546
This rich, multidisciplinary curriculum to accompany Joy Hakim’s The Story of Science: Aristotle Leads the Way covers astronomy, physics, and chemistry from Mesopotamia to the Middle Ages. The course of study is divided into five units. Each unit includes an introduction (with background information, a materials list, and standards correlated to the narrative and teaching materials) and nine class sessions. The Teacher’s Quest Guide includes embedded reading strategies to facilitate greater comprehension, hands-on science experiments to encourage learning by discovery, timeline activities, and several review and assessment activities for each unit. Students will enjoy a time-traveling cartoon character, Professor Quest, who summarizes the main point of each lesson. Multiple cross-curricular links suggest additional activities in math, language arts, history, art, and other subjects to extend learning. The accompanying Student's Quest Guide includes all necessary student worksheets. This curriculum is ideal for traditional science classes, enrichment programs, and home-school settings.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Book for Reading Together January 5, 2013
I absolutely love this set. We are replacing our history with this, as it is more relevant for our science motivated household. It is a high level read and does require some commitment to at least bi-weekly lessons. My daughter is 10 and a high level learner. This year we are reading the text, doing some of the quest guide and art journaling a main theme from each chapter. Next year we will repeat completing the experiments and linking exercises.

I am not a huge workbook fan, but I like the quest guide and unlike another review here, I felt it followed the chapters just fine. It does require thought, and is more than simple fill in the bank. Some pages may require completion over time - graphing concepts comparatively. Venn diagram's, etc...

Busy work that doesn't expand learning we typically skip....for this workbook we have skipped perhaps two exercises. If you have done K12's workbooks for American History, the Concise History is authored by Hakim. I like Story of Science much better...

5.0 out of 5 stars Loved it. November 3, 2012
We loved this series. This approach to science is awesome. Joy Hakim brings math and science to life by telling the story of it through out history. I only wish there was more of it. It also dispels the idea that people from earlier time periods were not as intelligent as we are today. This approach is the answer to compartmentalized programs that teach each subject in a vacuum. It describes dry facts by telling the intriguing stories of the people who first figured these things out, the problems they faced that led them to question, the breakthroughs they discovered, how these were received by the world, and what happened when the next guy came along and expanded on them. It will give you a whole new understanding of science.

4.0 out of 5 stars Nice Addition! February 26, 2012
Verified Purchase
As a teacher, it was really nice to find a student guide to go with the text book. I often have to make my own worksheets and this book will save me some time in my lesson preparation.

Very useful workbook to accompany The story of Science. As a busy home school parent it's wonderful to be able to have faith in a solid curriculum. I'm looking forward to getting caught up with my son, but in the meantime I can trust his brain is being challenged. He's learning stuff he wouldn't normally gravitate to, as an accomplished young naturalist, and loving it.
