The Building Blocks Research Bundle includes all 5 core science subjects (chemistry, biology, physics, geology, and astronomy) integrated into one textbook and is appropriate for one year of study.

The Research Bundle includes three books:

  • A full-color Student Textbook that your child reads to learn the building blocks of science.
  • A Laboratory Notebook that guides them through real data-driven hands-on experiments.
  • A Teacher’s Manual that contains information about how to set up the laboratory experiment and the materials needed.

Plus the following digital products:

  • A Study Notebook that contains activities to help reinforce each lesson and provides a place for the student to record their ideas. [Please read more about why study notebooks for Books 5 and up are different than Books 1-4]
  • An adjustable Lesson Plan to help you create the schedule that works for you.
  • 2 Midterms and a Final exam.
  • A Graphics Package that contains tables, charts, and illustrations you can use for lectures, flashcards or as a teaching aid.
  • Our Online Edition so your child can take their books on the road and read from any tablet, computer, or smartphone.


When your books arrive:

  • Use the Lesson Plan to map out your week.
  • On day 1 read a chapter of the Student Text with your child or have them read alone. Spend some time discussing the content with them.
  • On day 2 review the laboratory experiment with your child and collect materials for the experiment. Make sure you and your child have everything you need before beginning the experiment.
  • On day 3 perform the laboratory experiment and have your child record their data in the Laboratory Notebook. It is important that they record exactly what they observe even if the outcome is different than they expect.
  • On day 4 have your child do the activities and assemble the pages in the Study Notebook and review connections to other disciplines noted in the Lesson Plan.
  • On day 5 have your child take the self-test at the back of the Lesson Plan or have them take the Midterm or Final Exam.
