Science in the Scientific Revolution

Science in the Scientific Revolution is an engaging, exciting, hands-on, multilevel elementary resource that is the third in a planned series of books by Dr. Jay Wile.

Introducing scientific concepts in the context of history, students will follow the work of the scientists who lived during the period known as "The Scientific Revolution," 1543 to 1700. Arranged chronologically, chapters focus both on concepts as well as thinkers, including Galileo & Heliocentrism, Descartes, Otto von Guericke and the Electrical Charge, Robert Boyle, Francesco Redi, Sir Isaac Newton and his laws, Gottfried Wilhelm Leibniz, and others.

A total of 90 lessons are included; divided into chronological sections, each section contains 12 regular lessons and 3 challenge lessons for a total of 15 lessons. Depending on how much science you wish to teach in your homeschool, there are enough lessons to cover every other day for the length of a school year, or, you can finish the book by only doing two lessons a week (and skipping the challenge lessons).

Hands-on activities are included in each lesson; most are experiments (that have been field-tested for homeschoolers!), and include step by step directions to keep you on track. As this curriculum was designed for all elementary-aged students to use together, the main lesson text takes a conversational, easy-to-read tone that all students can comprehend; illustrations and photographs are integrated throughout. Review assignments close the lesson; questions are grouped for "youngest, older, and oldest" students. Students are instructed to keep a notebook, and the activities include comprehension and reflection notebook assignments.
