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.
Experiments use common household goods, though for some items that may not be on-hand, a full list (organized by section) is provided at the beginning of the book.
For evaluation, the notebook or oral questions can be used; tests are are in the included Helps & Hints book. This Helps & Hint booklet is divided into three sections, which include helpful notes on the lesson and experiments for the textbook, six tests covering multiple chapters, and answers to the tests. Two reproducible pages are also included in the appendix. NAS scripture used.

AmyMarylandAge: 45-54Gender: Female5 Stars Out Of 5Science in the Scientific RevolutionMarch 30, 2017AmyMarylandAge: 45-54Gender: FemaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5We recently finished the 3rd book in Dr. Jay L. Wile's chronological study of elementary science curriculum, entitled, Science in the Scientific Revolution. Our 3rd, 5th and 6th grade children thoroughly enjoyed learning about the scientific findings of the 1500's to the end of the 1600's. We met some of the well known scientists from that age such as Copernicus, Galileo, and Newton, as well as some not so well known but equally influential scientists. As any good natural philosopher would do, we studied concepts that focused on the human body, planets, and laws that govern our universe, to name a few. Being a no nonsense type of educator and mother of 10, I have to admit fun is not my top priority in choosing a science curriculum. However, I can attest that the fun experiments included in each of the 90 lessons showcases the author's objectives remarkably well. I believe the chronological study along with the memorable experiments combined with the age appropriate objective questions at the end of each lesson, engages and cements the concepts for our children. I was surprised to find how much my children did retain even from prior years when Dr. Wile would refer to his other volumes.
We are already looking forward to continuing our chronological study of science with Dr. Wile's next textbook of this series, Science in the Age of Reason.
