Science Starters: Elementary Chemistry & Physics (Teacher Guide - Scratch & Dent)
Your young student will be drawn to science and develop a strong foundation in the subject with this stellar curriculum that relies on exciting, hands-on, educational activities. With important concepts for physics and chemistry shown in easy-to-understand ways, students will study magnets, light waves, chemical elements, different forms of energy, and more by using bubbles, salt, and other common household items. Science + activities = learning fun!
Multi-level Quiz & Test Options: The Science Starters curriculum allows multi-age students between grades 3 to 8 to be taught at the same time. For your convenience we have included two different levels of quizzes and final exams so that you can choose the ones most appropriate for your student’s age and educational abilities. Suggested levels include:
Level 1 - Grades 3 to 4
Level 2 - Grades 5 to 6
Workflow: Students will read two pages in their book and then complete one page of the Student Journal. Extra Projects are also assigned. Quizzes are given at regular intervals.
Lesson Scheduling: Space is given for assignment dates. There is flexibility in scheduling. While each quarter has 45 days of assignments, they do not have to be given M-F. Some students may prefer to do more assignments each day, allowing for breaks on other days. Each week listed has five days but due to vacations the school work week may not be M-F. Please adapt the days to your school schedule. As the student completes each assignment, he/she should put an “X” in the box.

From the Investigate the Possibilities series, elementary chemistry and physics come alive through experiments that demonstrate science principles while affirming a biblical worldview. This one-year curriculum uses easy-to-understand explanations and descriptions of scientific processes and then provides an activity with household items that applies the scientific knowledge being studied The included Parent Lesson Plan includes quiz and testing materials for both younger and older students! Even better, this curriculum is perfect for teaching multi-age children, so you can teach your elementary-school and middle-school-aged children with the same, engaging curriculum.
Science Starters: Elementary Chemistry and Physics
This is the suggested course sequence that allows one core area of science to be studied per semester. You can change the sequence of the semesters per the needs or interests of your student; materials for each semester are independent of one another to allow flexibility.
Semester 1: Chemistry
Investigate the Possibilities Elementary Chemistry-Matter Its Properties & Its Changes: Infused with fun activities and applied learning, this dynamic, full-color book provides over 20 great ways to learn about bubbles, water colors, salt, and the periodic table, all through interactive lessons that ground students in their faith in God. Help tap into the natural curiosity of young learners with activities that utilize common household items and teach them why and how things work, what things are made of, and where they came from. Students will learn about the physical properties of chemical substances, why adding heat causes most chemical changes to react faster, the scientist who organized a chart of the known elements, and the difference between chemical changes and physical changes.
Semester 2: Physics
Investigate the Possibilities Elementary Physics-Energy Its Forms, Changes, & Function: This remarkable, full-color book is filled with experiments and hands-on activities, helping 3rd to 6th graders learn how and why magnets work, different kinds of energy from wind to waves, and concepts from nuclear power to solar energy. Science comes alive as students are guided through simplified key concepts of elementary physics and hands-on applications. Students will discover what happens to light waves when we see different colors, how you can see an invisible magnetic field, the essential parts of an electric circuit, and how solar energy can be changed into electric energy. Investigate the wonderful world God has made with science that is both exciting and educationally outstanding in this comprehensive series!
