Introduce students to real science with Exploring the Building Blocks of Science Book 7 Student Textbook. Foundational scientific concepts and terminology are presented clearly and in a manner that’s easy for kids to understand, giving kids a solid base on which to build a further study of science. This yearlong curriculum contains four chapters each of five scientific disciplines: chemistry, biology, physics, geology, and astronomy, as well as an introduction to the material covered and a concluding chapter, for a total of 22 chapters. The many graphics in this full color textbook reinforce the concepts presented and make the book fun for kids and teachers alike to read.
Some of the topics covered are: chemistry—mixtures and separating mixtures, organic chemistry, polymers, and biological polymers; biology—types of plants, the chemistry of photosynthesis, and plant structure and reproduction; physics—chemical energy, electrostatics, electrodynamics, and magnetism; geology—the hydrosphere, cycles and ecology in the biosphere, the magnetosphere, and Earth as a system; astronomy—galaxies, the Milky Way Galaxy, and the birth and death of stars.
