    Experimenting just got easier! This DK book makes science experiments fun and doable. It divides the contents into science areas and shows step-by-step photo illustrations for each experiment. There are 101 experiments in 11 different areas of science. Subjects covered are air and gases, water and liquids, hot and cold, light, color, growth, senses, sound and music, magnets, electricity, and motion and machines. Each section begins with a simple, short explanation of the concept, and then the experiments are demonstrated. What could be easier? You'll crush a plastic bottle with cold water, grow a stalactite, make musical instruments, and grow a plant through a maze. The experiments in this book are done with easily accessible items, and they are projects simple enough for young children. It's never too early to help young ones begin to discover the world around them. Pb, 120 pgs of science fun! ~ Donna

    Most homeschools have reference books like a dictionary, thesaurus, globe and atlas, maybe even a set of encyclopedias. But where do you go to look up science information? This science resource contains 250 main themes, 2000 entries, and thousands of colorful illustrations. From Dorling Kindersley, a secular publisher, so it may include some evolutionary content. Softcover.

    Instilling a love for science in my children was always a primary goal in our early days of home-schooling. One of my secret tools was always keeping a stack of interesting science reference books available for them to thumb through or to look up a quick question on their own (yes, this was pre-internet!), but I always struggled to find good quality books that did not overwhelm us with evolutionary content and would often lament to my husband, that it would sure be nice to have a Christian alternative to the informative Usborne or DK resource books. I am so excited to share that Master Books and My Father's World have heard the cries of many homeschool families and have joined together to provide quality science reference books that offer beautiful photographs and illustrations without the inundation of evolutionary teaching.

    Beginning with Genesis 1:1, this book introduces the scientific method, real science, fields of science and the reasons to study science and then dives into seven sections covering a wide range of scientific subjects. Section 1: Matters and Chemicals covers atoms, elements, molecules, solids, liquids, gases, melting and boiling, crystals, water, chemical changes, acids and bases and composites. Section 2: Energy, Motion and Machines presents energy, converting energy, the energy of motion, forces and motion, measuring force and motion, gravity, heat and cold, helpful machines, simple machines, machine power, friction and energy and matter. Section 3: Electricity and Magnetism contains electrical energy, static electricity, flowing electricity, electrical circuits, using electricity, magnetism, and magnetism to electricity, electricity to movement, movement to electricity plus more. Section 4: Light and Sound introduces sound waves, using sound, light, reflected and refracted light, using light, laser light and more. Section 5: Earth and Life presents planet earth, inside the earth, the rock cycle, volcanoes and earthquakes, atmosphere, weather and climate, mountains and valleys, rivers and lakes, coastlines, seas and oceans, life on earth and the earth in trouble. Section 6: Space and Time explores earth in space, exploring space, earth's orbit, magnetic earth, inner planets, solar wanderers, outer planets, the sun, stars and galaxies, deep space, and the universe.

    The last section provides over sixty projects covering topics in each of the previous six categories. Science projects contain a concise "you will need" list, clear step by step instructions, and colorful accompanying photographs. Each project also contains the reference page for further information and utilizes commonly found items. Glossary and index provide helpful reference material. hc. 247 pgs. ~ Deanne

      Always a good resource, DK offers this visual encyclopedia to complement all your science topics. This 300-page, hardcover reference takes you inside things you might not normally see in the world of science. Beautifully illustrated, this encyclopedia covers the areas of matter, materials, forces and machines, energy, light, electricity and magnetism, living organisms, and great discoveries. Every topic has a two-page spread with photos, illustrations and summaries of information. My favorite part of every DK book are the beautiful and fascinating photos – see a photo of an explosion, streaks of colored light, lightning, chloroplasts, and much more. Our world is beautiful, but we don’t see so much of it. Take time to see the visuals of the science world!

    Superbly illustrated and chronologically arranged, this comprehensive reference book presents a broad picture of science and its history. Divided into 5 sections, beginning with the dawn of science (Prehistory-1500) and moving through the information age (1970-current), this book will enthrall you with the events and stories behind scientific discovery-the struggles and the successes. Timelines, photographs and computer-enhanced images combine to bring the history of science and discovery to life. The interesting text clearly presents scientific ideas, theories and facts, biographies and short summaries of the men and women who dared to pursue and test the unknown.

    My only criticism about this magnificent resource is that it presents the theory of evolution as fact, which is objectionable to some families. However, with a targeted age group of junior high and above, this reference book presents an excellent opportunity for discussion or research projects for your student. The back of the book contains over 50 pages of reference material including measurements, mathematics, a Who's Who listing, detailed glossary, and devoted science sections covering: Astronomy, Earth Science, Biology, Chemistry, and Physics. DK once again provides teens and adults an excellent resource book for home and school. 510 pgs, sc. ~Deanne

    In this read-aloud approach to science, middle-grade students will discover basic biology, chemistry and physics concepts in an interactive and exciting way as they learn about the lives of famous scientists throughout history. Students will read biographies of famous scientists including Archimedes, Leonardo da Vinci, Galileo, Isaac Newton, Ben Franklin, Louis Pasteur, Thomas Edison, Marie Curie, Einstein (and more). They will also perform experiments, build a science portfolio, complete mapping exercises and learn new science vocabulary. The combination of biographical information and scientific discovery will really bring scientific concepts to life! Each lesson in the guide is in outline format, with specific reading assignments; a supply list for hands-on activities; recommended websites and more. Recently updated and now in full-color, this Beautiful Feet guide still utilizes many of the excellent resource books from the previous edition, with some new additions. Experiments are now taken from DK's Way Science Works, and supplies needed are listed in the lesson outline. Most supplies are household items, although a few specific items are required (suggested sources are provided in the front of the guide). A microscope is not required for the course, but there are microscope activities to complete if you do have access to one. This literature-based study will take one year to complete at a pacing of three lessons per week. Resource books and several of the suggested specialty supplies are listed below. Great for tactile learners and literature lovers.

    This beautifully illustrated DK book is divided into 5 main sections, all of which highlight different features of the Earth. Gorgeous pictures and illustrations present Planet Earth, Land, Ocean, Atmosphere, and Tectonic Earth in an eye-appealing format. An introductory section titled "Dynamic Earth" gives an overview of what you can expect in the book's content as it takes you through the interactions of the earth and the forces which are constantly at work.

    The first section, Planet Earth, talks about the earth as a whole and gives the history of the earth, the earth as it exists within the universe, the anatomy of the earth, and how the earth is changing over time. Land, Ocean, and Atmosphere are the earth's 3 main environments, and each includes introductory material, features found in each environment and how they are formed, and major features highlighted with pictures and additional information. Tectonic Earth offers profiles of the Earth's 7 major plates and population density and political boundary maps. Each section is scattered throughout with thematic panels which include photos, illustrations, notable people, information, data, and statistics.

    Probably my favorite parts of this book are the references for rocks, minerals, mountains, and volcanoes. Rock and mineral guides are found in the 'Anatomy of the Earth' section of the book. These guides show full-color pictures of rock and mineral specimens and give specific information about each of them. Mineral information includes composition, hardness, color, crystal system, and specific gravity while the information for each rock specimen includes the origin, color, and grain size. The location of featured mountains and volcanoes is shown on a small map along with the type, length, and activity and or last eruption, along with other pertinent information. This book isn't just gorgeous; it is a great reference tool as well.

    The information is presented from a secular perspective. You'll find information about the Big Bang Theory, global warming, and biodiversity along with a plethora of good earth science information. ~ Donna
