Category Description for Reason for Science:

Written for the Christian classroom, this inquiry-based science program is easily modified for homeschools or science co-ops. Believing that learning is an active process, this program engages children in hands-on learning, while supporting the parent/teacher in teaching scientific concepts in a mind-engaging way. Using a multi-sensory approach, each lesson has a visual, auditory, and kinesthetic component. Lessons are meant to be interactive with visual demonstrations and diagrams, worksheets and journaling exercises, oral stories and discussions, and “research teams” in the classroom. Homeschool families may choose to create group learning through parent-child interaction or with siblings. Topically, each level teaches Life, Earth and Physical Science. Each lesson includes Scripture object lessons. While including teaching flexibility, the weekly lessons in levels A and B are presented in a specific, daily format: Engage. Inform, Explore, Expand and Assess. In levels C-H, weekly lessons begin with an experiment or activity, followed by worksheets. These levels don’t provide a schedule; parent/teachers should plan 1-2 hours per lesson.

Vital for the program, the Teacher Guidebook provides an overview of teaching science through hands on activities and meaningful, directed instruction. Families (and teachers) will appreciate the author’s efforts to provide easy to understand language, concrete hands-on activities, teacher-to-teacher expanded explanations and other helps to give you confidence to teach science. Beginning with a brief introduction and list of national science education standards, then you’ll find teaching information, extension activities, supply lists, safety considerations, reduced student pages, workbook answers and assessments with answers. Includes blackline masters are reproducible for classroom use.

Consumable, student workbooks are colorful with the fun illustrations one has come to expect from the other "Reason for..." books. Worksheets have ample writing space and the levels A and B offer lines with a center dotted line to help young writers.

The Materials Kit (available in the Pack only) is a sturdy plastic case that includes the essential supplies for the 36 weekly experiments. You’ll also need to provide common household items. See list in each grade level description. The kit contains enough supplies for a team of up to 5 students to work together.

Refill kits are also available and include the consumable components of the material kits for additional students.

The Homeschool Set includes the Teacher Manual and the Student Workbook. Packs include the Homeschool Set and the Materials Kit. ~ Deanne

We like the all-in-one approach for science. Purchasing the kits might be a little more expensive than hunting down the individual items, but it's worth the trade-off.

I have heard wonderful things about this curriculum. My children LOVE science and to have hands on experiments makes it perfect. I also love the journal questions and level of thinking skills asked after each lesson. The best part, the biblical approach.

do you sell just the materials kit for a reason for science?
User on Jun 28, 2016
BEST ANSWER: We do not sell just the materials for the Reason for Science courses. We do, however, have a refill kit for each course that replaces the consumable items from the kit. The D refill kit is #64726.
