Need A General Science Book Suggestion...
December 4, 2012 at 5:46 PM
My kids are in K and 1st. We are currently using Apologia Science..working our way through a couple different ones. I love Apologia..but haven't really found a science book for grade school from them that covered general science. Such as magnets and things like that.
I want to pick up a general science book to have around the house for the kids to use. My son has been asking a lot of general science questions and I want to be able to pull out a book for him to check out.
Thanks for any suggestions!

    You could always google his questions.

    Galore Park's junior science series would fit the bill nicely. It is secular though (noticed you prefer Apologia, so I'm not sure if Galore Park is an option for you).

    We like science in a Nutshell kits - they are a bit expensive $40 each I believe - but they have everything in them for three students. they are supposedly for grades 3-6 but most of them could easily be done with Kinder and 1st graders as long as you change the vocabulary a bit. I did them when DS2 was in 3rd and DD was Kinder and other than writing in the Journals she had no problem doing the experiments and understanding it.
