We are using Real Science-4-Kids Chemistry Level I this year. In my opinion this is not a whole year curriculum. We are going to do it over the course of 10 weeks. We will than use the Biology and Physics sets.
We are only on Lesson 1 right now so its too early to give a true review. So far I like the curriculum. The book seems well written and very colorful. I did not buy the lab book in paperback, I bought the .pdf download so I can print it and put it in a 3 ring binder. We have the teachers manual, textbook, lab book, and the tests.
We are still setting up our workbox system. I am using the Sterilite 6.2 qt. clear plastic boxes. This box fits a 1” 3 ring binder and the textbook. I made lessons plans for this curriculum for 4 days a week. Day 1 consists of reading the chapter, day 2 complete the experiment, day 3 answer the review questions in the lab book, and day 4 take the chapter test.
I made these plans similar to some plans I found on the internet for Story of the World. I wasn’t able to find plans for this so I modified the ones I found.
Below is a link to my plans on Google docs. I am new to uploading docs to Google, when I did a print preview the formatting was all messed up. If you know how to fix this great otherwise I recommend copying and pasting to word. You can email me and I send you the actual word file.
