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 Earth & Space Odyssey covers weather changes, the water cycle, air, the earth's composition, rocks, soil moon, solar system, and more. Instructor sheets are included with supply lists or procedure instructions, and are followed by a notebooking instructional page for the student that explains the concepts, as well as a lab page with charts or questions to fill in.
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. 346 pages, softcover. Revised edition.

Oracle Triple CTucson, AZAge: 35-44Gender: female5 Stars Out Of 5R.E.A.L Science is Really Amazing!September 20, 2012Oracle Triple CTucson, AZAge: 35-44Gender: femaleQuality: 4Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5R.E.A.L Science is one of the best hands-on science curriculums I have encountered as an educator. If you are looking for a Bible-based science curriculum, this is NOT it! However, if you are looking for science a curriculum that makes science exploration interesting, this is it. If you are looking for a curriculum that encourages students to make scientific connections outside of formalized learning time, this is it. We use the notebook approach and loved the printable pages and lab sheets. It is wonderful if you are taking a classical approach and it allows and even encourages you to be engrossed in literature alongside each unit. As a part of that literature we search for scriptures that tell about the rocks/minerals/solar system to show that God's hand is in everything. Well thought out curriculum!
