    This beginner set of 10 fossils is a great collection for getting started or for study purposes – it includes dinosaur bone, shark tooth, ammonite, brachiopod, crinoid, gastropod and more (specimens may vary a bit by kit). The 16-page full color guide is the same as the guide found in #014056, so not all of the specimens in the guide will be found in this kit. Intended for the curious, this kit can be used as a hands-on supplement to your science curriculum or just use it to explore. Specimens range in size from about ¾" to 1½ ".

    This might just be the most awesome volcano kit we carry! This kit includes a volcano mold, plaster, eruption powder, paint, paintbrush, booklets, and real specimens (geode, obsidian and pumice). Be creative and paint your volcano to make it personally yours, then make it erupt over and over with the erupting powder. The geode, obsidian and pumice are included so you can see and feel the different types of igneous rocks. You even get the bonus activity of breaking the geode to see what types of crystals are inside the rock. The Activity booklet includes ten fun puzzles - word search, dot-to-dot, word jumble, crossword, a very challenging volcano maze, and five more types of puzzles. The Adventure Guide includes information about volcanoes, structure of the earth, plate tectonics, etc. accompanied by colored photographs.

    This Discover with Dr. Cool Kit is just that – COOL! Great fun to paint, erupt, and learn about volcanoes and rocks. ~ Donna

    Falling in love with science doesn't just happen. Rather, it is an overflow of a curious nature, and there is no better way to stir curiosity in our children than allowing them to get their hands dirty, so to speak.

    This interactive kit contains everything necessary to complete several activities that introduce children to the properties of chemistry. Step-by-step instructions, follow up questions and the underlying scientific principles are provided, making this easy and educational for your little chemist. Here is a sampling of the activities your child will participate in: Clash of the Powders (baking soda and citric acid), Fizzy Volcanoes, Soapy Bubbles, Yeasty Beasties and many others. Younger children will be enthralled as they become real scientists - measuring and mixing compounds, analyzing results and looking at what happens when slight changes are made to the original experiment. Supply a few common household items along with adult supervision and watch your children fall in love with science! ~Deanne

    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

    Have you ever wondered how much of the science-fiction world of Star Wars is based on real science? Through the 30+ experiments in this book, children will embark on a journey to discover the science of Star Wars, with activities inspired by the planets, creatures, droids, and technology from the films. Most experiments use easy to find items, although a 400x microscope is recommended for later experiments. One unique feature of this book is that the experiments are identified by difficulty level as well as material costs. Movie tie-ins, step-by-step directions and "secret" science explanations make this appealing to the science loving child or a science resistant Star Wars fan. A tremendous asset for upcoming science fairs or to add more engaging, hands-on learning to your day. Vibrantly illustrated. 126 pgs, sc. ~ Deanne

    If your family is like mine - captivated by the real science behind the plethora of television crime shows, then this book may be perfect for you. This resource brings the scientific study of crime scenes into the home and school arena. While the labs are designed for groups, you can easily do these as a family (or in a co-op) if you are willing to invest the time to set the crime scene stage.

    Divided into 4 sections, each covers a different branch of science. The first section, Critical Thinking, lays the foundational principles of science and reinforces observation skills (handwriting and typewriting comparisons,) experimentation (shoe impressions) and logical thinking. Physical Science employs techniques such as analysis of unknown mixtures, fibers and fingerprinting. In the Life Science section, students concentrate on evidence left at crime sciences by living things and study the principles of inheritance, DNA, blood typing, dental identification, and forensic etymology. The final section, Earth Science, offers lessons on mummification, skeletal evidence, and archaeological evidence. All in all, this supplemental resource book offers 68 lessons and labs (most lessons have one accompanying lab, some have two) designed to bring a fresh enthusiasm on the importance of "whys" of learning science. Household items and additional lab equipment required (microscope, glass slides and cover slips, test tubes, pH paper, beakers, filter paper, Plaster of Paris, and various chemicals. Information to order an Edvotek DNA Kit is included for the DNA labs).

    A brief personal note, I used the previous edition of this book with my teens and they still talk about the science they learned. Real life science learned and remembered makes for one happy homeschool mom! We performed the majority of activities in the book, making changes to the readily available supplies, some of the experiments we discussed and did not perform due to the difficulty of obtaining materials. Noteworthy:while the mock crimes are presented in a discerning manner, they do represent a wide variety of fact- based crimes. As a family, you may elect to skip over some of the lessons within the pages. Reproducible for classroom use. sc ~Deanne

    If your preschooler wants to do "real" schoolwork and is interested in science, this may be a perfect fit. The 144-page workbook is divided into topics including "My Body," "Animals," "Plants," "Water," "Air," and "The Earth." Each page features simple text and cartoon-like black-and-white pictures kids can color. A box at the bottom of the page gives basic instructions such as matching, coloring, identifying, completing the picture, tracing, and more. The tasks are pretty standard early childhood activity fare, but they are presented within the context of science. For instance, in the "Water" section children are asked to identify bodies of water with their common names or cross out the animals that do not belong in the ocean. Please note that this workbook hasn't been "Americanized," and includes some plants that may be new to your family.

    Put away those boring, old textbooks and show children that science has a purpose in every-day life. Even more than that, discover with your children how to be a part of real scientific research! Easy to use, this family guide book from the American Library Association, begins by showing you how to be a citizen scientist, including how to use science as a family activity. Once the foundation is laid, there is a directory of seven citizen science projects that are readily available. The first section provides links to a variety of online logic games and puzzles. Subsequent sections are Amphibians and Reptiles, Birds and Insects, Beaches, Wetlands and Waterways, Biodiversity for Beginners, Outer Space, Plants and Fungi, and Weather and Seasons. Within each section are listings of a wide range of ongoing science projects, including a summary of the project, website link, age range, time frame, region and fee (if any). While most projects are U.S. based, there are a few world-wide or Canadian projects listed. Projects primarily focus on observing and reporting exercises; however, many also include photo submission alongside the observing and reporting. This great resource would make a captivating summer Science supplement or a productive way to add nature studies to a textbook curriculum. All the while, your children appreciate and value the natural world around them. SC.176 pgs. ~ Deanne
