Has anyone heard of this before?? I found it today at the library and checked both books out. I found it downstairs in the kid department rather than upstairs in the hs or in the education area. Each science lesson is based off literature books. It looks like they recommend at least 2 books that you can get from the library and then there are a weeks worth of activities/experiments to go along with it plus a few sheets that you could make into a lap book or notebook. The ratings I have seen on this are great. It seems to be geared more for a classroom, but would have no problems making it towards 1 kid.

I have not heard of that book, but it sounds interesting.
We do a majority of our science lessons based on our reading books.

After reading the book "Growing Things: Sticky Fingers" by Ting Morris, we grew onion sprouts as a science experiment.

We read "Planting a rainbow" by Lois Ehlert. The boys planted some
flowers of various colors for our patio garden. We learned the names of the parts of a flower from a printout we found online for our Nature Study (science).

When we read books on Leprechauns and Rainbows earlier in March, we made a rainbow indoors using items we had in the home.

I think Science this way makes it more interesting for young children. I know it has for mine.

That is why I was drawn to this, I think it will make a bit more interesting. She LOVES science, but gets rather board with not doing enough activities. I think it would draw her more into wanting to read more and then she gets the hands on and research like she loves to do. Rather than a text book. We can still explore all the parts of science, but just in a different way. I think this is something I am really going to explore more for next year. Just need to start preparing now
