    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

    For those of you who want to teach using the classical method, the authors of this book, Harvey and Laurie Bluedorn, have long believed and implemented this in their own homeschool. In this book they combine their knowledge and experience to present a spiritual and philosophical foundation and a practical program for Christian homeschooling in the classical style. The first four chapters discuss the reasoning and logic of teaching with classical education, a discussion of why parents should be in charge of their students' education, problems with classroom (public) schools, and an explanation and description of what the trivium is. The next three chapters study one element of the trivium each - language, logic, and rhetoric. Each chapter presents the topic, arguments for teaching it, guidelines for teaching, where to start, what children should be learning at appropriate age levels, and other tips and advice for incorporating these core subjects. Chapter eight follows the same basic format, delving into the study of literature. In chapter nine, the Bluedorns offer principles for the study of historical literature. The following chapter provides lots of advice and help for different methods and approaches to homeschooling in light of the trivium, such as the Charlotte Mason approach, unschooling, unit studies, and others. Part two of the book, The Practical Trivium, hold chapters listing things children should do at particular ages - ten things to do with students before age ten, ten through twelve, thirteen through fifteen, sixteen through eighteen, nineteen and onward, and finally the last chapter, Life's Goals Begin at Home. Appendix one includes 16 different articles discussing the trivium, education, and other related issues. Appendix two provides an thorough resource list, outlining general resources and those for language arts & English, rhetoric, literature, history, government, law and economics, languages, mathematics, logic, Bible and theology, philosophy, science, art and music, and other miscellaneous resources. While you may not agree with all of the personal philosophy in this book, if you want to teach from the trivium and are looking for a guide to implement a classical education in your homeschool, this is a very complete and thorough guide from experienced authors. - Melissa

    A one-stop resource for 110 science experiments that can be done in your home, with things from your home, to enhance your education at home. Divided into seven categories with anywhere from eleven to 23 experiments in each section, topics cover Material World, Push and Pull, Bright Ideas, Supersonic, It's Alive, Hot Stuff, and Super Power. This book is 256 colorful pages with lists of materials needed, numbered instructions that show both photos and written text. The steps are easy to follow and you'll grow things, hunt things, cut and paste things, melt and freeze things, and much more. We used this book to make a wobble toy with a ping pong ball to demonstrate low center of gravity; make a citrus battery to demonstrate a chemical reaction that produces an electrical charge, and make goop. Every experiment ends with an explanation of the outcome. Use this with your science curriculum for more hands-on fun, or use for rainy day activities it's a great resource! ~ Donna
