  • Item #: CHM3ST
    Retail: $90.00
    Rainbow Price: $61.95

    For economy purposes and ease of shopping, a bundle can be purchased that includes the textbook, tests, and solutions manual (CHM3ST). Algebra 1 is a prerequisite to doing this course and is important for solving and understanding chemical equations. If using Exploring Creation with Chemistry in a co-op setting, this new 3rd edition will not work with the older editions. Changes are significant enough that students will all need the same edition.

    This new edition of Exploring Creation with Chemistry makes chemistry approachable and doable in a homeschool setting. Now authored by Kristy Plourde, you will notice a few changes from previous editions.

    The chapter order has been changed from the previous editions (1st and 2nd) of the curriculum. There are still 16 modules measurement, units, and the scientific method, atoms and molecules, atomic structure, molecular structure, polyatomic ions and molecular geometry, changes in matter and chemical reactions, describing chemical reactions, stoichiometry, acid-base chemistry, chemistry of solutions, gas phase, energy/heat and temperature, thermodynamics, kinetics, chemical equilibrium, and reduction-oxidation reactions. The front of the book offers a suggestion on how to use the book and the length of time typically spent to complete the course. "On Your Own" questions are found throughout the modules and are to be completed as the student reads the text answers are included at the end of the module. "Review Question" and "Practice Problems" are found at the end of each module to help students recall and apply important concepts presented in that module. The text is generous with examples, illustrations, and photos for clarity of concepts.

    Some helpful resources are found at the back of the text glossary, tables/laws/equations, extra practice problems for each module, and a complete list of lab supplies.

    Experiments are homeschool-friendly and can be completed using the lab kit (#008778) that is assembled by Nature's Workshop and items that are easily accessible. If you want to do more advanced experiments, you can purchase the MicroChem Lab Kit (#020028). These experiments aren't printed in the student text, but are mentioned and marked by a flask and test tube symbol along with where that experiment can be found in the MicroChem Manual. The experiments in this 3rd edition are a combination of some new ones and the tried-and-true from the previous editions. If you don't want or need to purchase the lab kit (#008778), the required items to complete experiments are a 1 mass scale (0 to 500 grams), blue and red litmus paper, 1 thermometer (-10 to 110 degrees C). If you have these three items, the text makes suggestions within the experiments for household substitutions of the other items needed.

    A special website is available to accompany this course, offering web links and additional information for specific concepts. The web address is printed in the front of the text with instructions for access. Textbook is now in the 4th printing. ~ Donna.

    The Student Notebook is a handy companion to the course. It provides formatted pages on which to write the answers to the text questions – On Your Own, Study Guide Questions, Practice Problems, and Extra Practice Problems. Experiment instructions are in the student notebook along with space for recording observations and data and making notes. There is also space for recording the optional MicroChem experiments. A suggested schedule will keep the student on track to finish the course. This notebook isn't included in the bundle, but is sold separately.

    The Elementary Chemistry & Physics by Apologia uses very specific items in their labs; this kit is a great convenience to complete those labs. Bagged and labeled by lesson, the kit includes: 25ml plastic cylinder, table salt, plastic straw, turkey baster, die, bead, ping pong ball, small block of wood, cork, aluminum foil, Neodymium magnet, effervescent tablet, popcorn kernel, rubbing alcohol, flavored gelatin, wax paper, needle, pint and gallon size bags, gum, balloon, Epsom salt, Pop Rocks Candy, small paper plates, paper plate, Nerds candy, yeast, gloves, Peanut M&Ms, peroxide, borax, cornstarch, spoon, rubber band, string, bamboo skewers, Styrofoam cups, red & blue litmus paper, Mentos, steel wool, cardboard tube, thread, sugar, candle wick, thermometers, vinegar, alum, potassium nitrate, cotton swab, coffee filter, white sand, sand, dish soap, chalk, stopwatch, marbles, index card, pie pan, modeling clay, toothpick, washer, baking soda, funnel, black powder paint, Cheerios, dominoes, mirrors, prisms, bouncing ball, adhesive putty, colored cellophane pack, PVC elbows and pipe, small nail, film canister, rubbing alcohol, cooking oil, small paper cups, sandpaper, cardboard, electrical tape, 6-volt battery, insulated copper wire, small light bulbs, light bulb holders, large paper clips, paper fasteners, d-cell battery, Wint-O-Green Lifesaver, pepper packet, LED bulb, needle, bar magnet, horseshoe magnet, iron filings, compass, AA battery, lid for water bottle, bare copper wire, round magnets, 3" iron nail, paper clips pack, small board, rope, and plastic tubing. Some items used in the labs are too large to be bagged with the lesson and are found loose in the kit. Those items are marked with an asterisk on the packing list that is included. You will still need to gather some items from around your home, but this kit really takes a lot of the effort out of it. ~ Donna

    This Lab Kit from Nature's Workshop includes most of the supplies needed for the labs in the Exploring Nature with Astronomy 2nd Ed. textbook, organized and bagged by lab activity number. A cross-reference sheet is included so the kit can be used with either the 1st or 2nd edition Astronomy course. Please note that this kit will not include supplies for the optional "Apologia Science Kit Activities" which are printed in brown in the daily schedule found in the notebooking journals. Apologia has made an exclusive kit available which contains supplies for the optional and textbook activities. One other notable difference between the Nature's Workshop kit and the Apologia kit is that the Nature's Workshop kit includes materials bagged by lesson where the materials in Apologia's kit are bagged by activity. There are also some variations in the types of supplies provided, most notably in that there are no food items included in the Apologia kit, while most of these are included (pre-measured) in the Nature's Workshop kit (flour, salt, oil, chocolate bar, etc.)

    A field trip can be just about anything: visit a museum, historical colony, recycling plant, ethnic restaurants, zoo, farm, or even a business. How do you get the most out of a field trip? This guide from Apologia helps you plan the outing from learning objectives to those practical details (logistics, safety, maps, etc.). After the first few pages, the rest is all for your student to record their memories. They are encouraged to draw pictures, collect artifacts, document sights, scents & sounds, and summarize the experience. What a great keepsake! Each 2 page spread (14 of them) is for a different field trip memory. Another section is called My Special Spot where the child is told to choose a place somewhere outside and write about it in during each of the 4 seasons. As I See It pages (17 single pages) are for open-ended expression for your student to draw or paste an image that is meaningful to them or include whatever the child desires. Spiral bound, laminated covers (that don't look too young for older students,) 64pp ~ Sara
