Now packaged as one all-inclusive, kit A Reason for Science includes everything necessary for a year's worth of scientific discovery. The full-color, 36-lesson, student workbook is designed to develop critical thinking skills; each week, students begin with a hands-on activity demonstrating a key science concept, which is followed by discussion, journaling & comprehension questions, summary, and related scriptural object lesson. Each hands-on activity has step-by-step directions and is accompanied by illustrations for each step. Level B is designed for Grade 2, and covers animal characteristics and adaptation to environment; volcanoes, climate, recycling, Newton's laws, light absorption, static electricity, magnetism and more. The included teacher's guide contains an overview of the course, as well as lesson-notes that surround reduced student pages. Instruction includes noting general categories; specific topic focus; objective, overview, additional comments, options for alternative procedures, teacher-to-teacher notes, direct instruction with some scripting, field trip & guest speaker ideas, answers, and other important teaching information. You don't have to hunt all over the house for hands-on activity and experiment supplies; everything you need for each grade's work is included in the Team Materials Kit. Contents are specific to each grade, and contain everything from common household objects to harder-to-find materials in a snap-top plastic case, approximately 13" x 8" x 4.5".
