Through simple experimentation (optional videos are provided for every experiment) and interactive learning, children explore the basics of chemistry in this 14-lesson unit. Each lesson is filled with discoveries about how our world is affected by molecular-level changes. Recommended for Grades 5–8, though some younger children may enjoy participating. (Note: Most The Good and the Beautiful science units are family style for Grades 3-8.

Each family will need one copy of the Course Book and one Student Journal per child. Don't miss the read-aloud book pack available below to expand learning.
