(I received the K activity book for free & was compensated for my time. These opinions are honest, entirely mine, and I was not required to post a positive review.)
My third child just started her kindergarten homeschool year.
She is my only daughter, and there is a huge difference between her and her brothers!
For kindergarten with my boys, we did the absolute bare minimum and barely survived.
They just were not quite ready for most of the lessons.
I had to come up with imaginative ways to teach them!
But my daughter, she wants to do school all day, every day.
I have never taught science during the kindergarten year.
As a Biochemistry grad, I love science. Anything chemistry makes me happy!
I was drawn to Real Science-4-Kids because they teach difficult subjects at an early age.
I love that! This curriculum allows our kids to be exposed to chemistry, biology, and physics and develop a love for science.
When I discovered that Real Science-4-Kids offered a kindergarten program that touched on biology, chemistry, physics, astronomy, and geology, I jumped on the opportunity to give it a try.
For grades first and up, all the programs come with three books: a teacher’s manual, a student textbook, and a laboratory book.
However, kindergarten only has an activity book.
This simplicity is a genius idea by Real Science-4-Kids because it piques the child’s interest in science without bogging them down with too many details.
Also, this truly helps this type-A mama not feel overwhelmed to try to do too much. I sometimes feel like I need to complete every single activity in the teacher’s manual.
That was not the case with this science curriculum.
I simply opened the activity book, and Hartley and I started learning together.
Our First Kindergarten Science Lessons with Real Science-4-Kids
Our first lessons together were all about atoms.
We had a lot of fun coloring together and talking through the building blocks.
The images of atoms and molecules had silly faces and kept her interest in chemistry, even at a young age.
Moving along with Real Science-4-Kids
We soon moved onto Physics.
The activity book contained several simple experiments that we did together, such as these physics activities.
We took a ball outside and looked at how thing moved and recorded them all in our activity book.
We soon started the astronomy portion of the activity book. Hartley loved learning all about the planets.
The activity book kept her interested and engaged as I taught her the names of the planets.
The activity book was perfect for her to use while we explored and talked about the topic.
She LOVED having her own science book like her big brothers.
