R.E.A.L. Science Odyssey

R.E.A.L (Read, Explore, Absorb, Learn) Science Odyssey homeschool science curriculum from Pandia Press is full of serious science taught in a fun and engaging style and is specifically written for teachers without a science background!

Each course infuses scientific method and age-appropriate mathematics. 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!
