R.E.A.L. Science Odyssey: Chemistry (Level 1)
You will find R.E.A.L. Science Odyssey to be unlike any other science curricula available. Most notably, it is secular. Only scientific inquiry and theory based on empirical and measurable evidence are understood to be valid and standard science in all of our REAL Science Odyssey courses.
Also, REAL Science Odyssey courses are written specifically for home and small group use. Packed full of serious science and loads of fun, REAL Science Odyssey is an incremental program that gently builds on itself and incorporates mathematics, scientific method, and science terminology. Created with the science novice in mind, you don’t need any science background to teach REAL Science Odyssey.
In REAL Science Odyssey Chemistry (level one), the topics covered are usually those reserved for high school chemistry, but are presented in way that youngsters can easily grasp. Topics covered include atoms, molecules, the periodic table, states of matter, acids and bases, and chemical reactions. Students start small, pondering the size and magnitude of atoms and molecules. Then students make their own periodic table and study 18 of the most common elements. They experiment with states of matter and make their own pH scale. Students end big with chemical reactions and exciting combustion labs.
