Eagerly, I opened all of the pdfs from the Learning about Science Collection, Level I, an elementary science curriculum from WriteBonnieRose to figure out which one my grandson and I would start with. I couldn't decide. Everything looked so fun with adorable illustrations and loads of easy-to-understand information.
A little advanced for my young grandson because Learning About Science Collection, Level I is for first to third graders, we plunged ahead anyway. At first glance through everything, my favorite things was the enchanting illustrations.
"Okay, stop thinking about how cute everything is and decide what you should study with the kids," I thought. Each of the seven books are complete in themselves, totaling 172 pages. I looked again at the titles: Familiar Plants and How They Grow, Fruits and Vegetables Around the World, Animal Habitats of the World, Our Senses and Systems and How They Work, Learning about Life Cycles, Earth: Layers, Earthquakes, and Volcanoes, and Exploring States of Matter.
I wanted to do them all, but I finally decided to start with Fruits and Vegetables Around the World. We had so much fun learning about different fruits and vegetables, coloring the pictures, and tracing the words to practice handwriting! I learned new things about them fruit and vegetables like that China grows lots of pears which come in a variety of colors. There was a lot of information packaged in easy-to-understand writing that was impressive. This curriculum is perfect for little lambs to learn science.
We took a field trip to the grocery store and looked for all the fruits and vegetables we learned about.
I even took the pineapple and pear page to Sunday school where we talked about pears and pineapples, ate pears, ate pineapple, and listened to The Pineapple Story told by Otto Koning about what God taught him about love and trust through his pineapple garden.
Getting back to the other books in the collection, my favorite page in Fruits and Vegetables Around the World was the color page showing how seeds become seedlings and young plants. I made an extra copy of that page because it was such a good diagram, colored it and laminated it as a visual aid. I did the same thing again with the pictures of the molecules in a liquid, solid, and gas in Exploring States of Matter.
We haven't done Animal Habitats of the World, but I can't wait. We're working on that next. It will be fun to color all the different animals and their habitats while we learn together. We are looking forward to making our way through all of the books.
From the easy online downloads and printing to working together at the dining room table, our experience was enjoyable and profitable.
