George Washington Carver, Einstein, and others as well as hands-on
experiments to prove the scientists' theories and test their
discoveries. An enriching way to introduce biology, chemistry, and
physics. For grades 3-7, this one-year study will cover basic scientific
principles and the history of scientific study beginning in ancient
Greece and continuing through the 1990s. Contains 85 lessons, dozens of
experiments, lab reports, and much more. Introduce the fascinating world
of science to your child and spark their curiosity and desire to
understand the world.
