Biology, Taxonomy, & Human Anatomy
Science D gives students an up-close look at the observable world and the forces behind what we can see. Students focus on Physics (energy, gravity, sound, electricity, and machines) and Biology (life, cells, plants and photosynthesis, plant growth, protists, frogs, butterflies, ecosystems, food cycle, water cycle, air cycle, the human body and animals).
Students learn how living things are categorized and named (taxonomy). They discover biological processes and how they work through hands-on experiments and projects.? Students will build a greenhouse and conduct botany experiments to understand what living things need.
You and your children will learn through hands-on activities and interesting books such as Usborne Science Encyclopedia, Magic School Bus, two TOPS: Green Thumbs books and more. You’ll return to these same subjects at deeper levels many times in the years ahead.
Science D experiments are coordinated with the TOPS: Green Thumbs books and are based on the growth of living things and are very accurately planned out for a 5-day schedule. Since BookShark curriculum is a 4-day schedule you will need to make the necessary adjustments. The TOPS books are scheduled from Week 18 to Week 26.
If your Science curriculum will be shipped to Australia, New Zealand, or South Africa, please contact us regarding international regulations on Science supplies.
The following OPTIONAL supplements are scheduled in the guide but not required.
Lyrical Life Science, Volume 1?and Volume 2
