Give your students a thoroughly Christian introduction to the underlying principles of matter with Christian Kids Explore Chemistry. Featuring conversational, accessible lessons that can be used with students in multiple grades, this easy-to-use homeschool curriculum will get everyone involved in science. Lessons focus on the basics of chemistry (including matter, measuring, elements, molecules, and compounds) as well as concepts such as bases and acids, states of matter, biochemistry, and more.
Units and lessons follow a consistent format. Units begin with a short introduction that provides objectives, vocabulary, and materials needed; a coloring page and a unit 'wrap-up' multiple-choice assessment are also included.
Individual lessons include:
A 'Teaching Time' passage to be read aloud or independently (Scripture and defined terms are in the margin)
Five fill-in-the-blank review exercises
A 'Hands-On Time' activity that reinforces concepts from the lesson (materials needed list and step-by-step directions provided)
