Who is ready to learn about Physics and Chemistry, including Newton’s Laws (What’s all this gravity stuff about, anyway??), energy, force, light, chemical reactions, the Periodic Table, and much more? Experiments? Yes! Fun? Yes! Fire? Maybe! We will do all this, and more, in Rainbow Science, Year 1.
What is Rainbow Science? Rainbow Science is a 2 year, comprehensive science curriculum. Year One focuses on physics and chemistry, and Year Two focuses on biology and a variety of applied science. Rainbow Science covers foundations of General Science, Earth Science, Life Science and Physical Science. The concise and easy to understand text is packed with lovely multi-color photographs and is written by an experienced teacher and homeschooling father. This curriculum will help students not only understand science, but also help prepare them for higher level high school sciences. This is a great program. It is written clearly and concisely and with humor, in such a way that your kids will get excited about science, which is priceless! Your kids will love science and learn so much!
Class at SHEEP is a lab science class. Work at home will require students to read both the text and lab in preparation for each lab class (completed easily 2 days out of the week) and attempt the exercises at the end of the reading sections in the text. Some labs require students to record information in their lab notebooks. More information about Rainbow Science is available at the publisher’s website: https://www.beginningspublishing.com/rainbow-junior-high-science-curriculum/.
