Exploring the Building Blocks of Science Book 1 Student Textbook has 22 chapters and includes a general introduction to science, an overview of the scientific method, and how chemistry, biology, physics, astronomy, and geology all participate in shaping the field of study we call science. Students learn about atoms and how atoms combine to form molecules; how chemical reactions work; the difference between living and non-living organisms; what viruses and bacteria are and where they live; what force, work, and energy are and how they're related; the rocks and minerals that form our planet; volcanoes and earthquakes; Earth, the Moon, the Sun, and our solar system; and much more. Students begin open inquiry with suggested questions found in the Teacher's Manual which also has directions for guiding the experiments. The Laboratory Notebook contains 22 experiments that explore topics covered in the Student Text. Experiments include: observing chemistry in everyday life, making model molecules, sorting objects, observing living and nonliving things, exploring the concept of work in physics, testing gravitational stored energy, observing dirt and rocks, exploring lava flows, modeling solar and lunar eclipses, observing the Moon, and many more. Each book has 4 chapters of each of the 5 core science subjects (chemistry, biology, physics, geology, and astronomy) and an introductory and a concluding chapter for a total of 22 chapters.
