Packed full of serious science and loads of fun, RSO is an incremental program that incorporates mathematics, scientific method, and science terminology as it gently builds on itself. Each topic in the RSO series of books is presented in an entertaining story-like format and is followed by hands-on activities along with background science information, parent instructions, labs, reading lists, journaling ideas, and websites. Comprehensive in scope, this full science curriculum incorporates notebooking with lab experiments and review.
RSO level one infuses scientific method and age-appropriate mathematics in every course. Students learn how to speculate, hypothesize, experiment, and conclude, while observation skills are developed through sketch drawings and written descriptions. Analytical skills are encouraged through comparing, forming questions, and interpretations. Students will make age-appropriate calculations, plot results, make graphs, and diagram information, just like R.E.A.L. scientists!
REAL Life Science covers what life is; different systems of the body, including skeletal, circulatory, respiratory, digestive, and nervous systems; the animal kingdom; the plant kingdom; and more. Instructor sheets are included with supply lists, procedure instructions, and "read-aloud" instruction/mini-lesson, and are followed by a notebooking instructional page for the student that explains the concepts, as well as a lab page with charts, questions, or activity recording projects.
Each book of RSO level one is a complete one-year science curriculum if used one or two times a week. Level 1 is appropriate for Grades 1-5. 328 pages, softcover. Revised edition.

NutmegMinneapolis, MNAge: 45-54Gender: female2 Stars Out Of 5Too simple for third and fourth grade.November 21, 2012NutmegMinneapolis, MNAge: 45-54Gender: femaleQuality: 3Value: 3Meets Expectations: 1I purchased two of the R.E.A.L. Science texts. At first I thought they would be perfect so I had the spines cut off and three hole punched for easier use. After a few weeks of using the Life Science curriculum though I realized it was much too simple for my 3rd and 4th graders. (ages 9+10) I'll pass it on to my sister's 6+7 yr olds. My neighbor suggested her Apologia series. I had been reluctant to try it because I am Catholic and some of the teaching about evolution conflicted with my beliefs. The texts are written extremely well though with other Christian ideals interspersed that I embrace and I have chosen to use the Anatomy and Physiology text this year. I am still considering the R.E.A.L. Chemistry text for next year.
