Category Description for R.E.A.L. Science Odyssey:

Tactile and rigorous, this classically-based science program provides an excellent science experience. The program is designed for the non-science parent. If you are a squeamish person, R.E.A.L. Science may not be for you. You’ll get dirty, handle bugs and worms, and learn through experimentation. The lessons in the book are intended to be done in order from start to finish, each lesson building upon the previous lessons. Two levels are available, perfect for multi-age learning or homeschool co-ops. The all-in-one text for Level One teaches science in an entertaining story-like format with hands-on activities, along with background science information, instructions, reading lists, journaling ideas, and supplemental websites. Student Worksheets are reproducible in Level One, although Student Pages are available separately. Science is planned 2-3 times per week. Formatted for independent learning, Level Two student texts bring science alive by engaging young people’s minds through active participation in learning. Spiral bound Student Texts offer instruction and consumable activity sheets and review pages. Consumable student materials are available separately. Teacher Guides are recommended and include weekly schedules, learning goals, math concepts for labs, lesson reviews with information not found in the student book, lab material lists, answer keys and grading guidelines.


Items listed in this section tend to be complete science programs with a teacher and student component, requiring few supplements besides science supplies.

I own the R.E.A.L. Science Earth and Environment curriculum and Pandia Press (publisher of the curriculum) lists Rainbow Resource on their website as a link for the rock kit needed to complete some of the labs, so it was really convenient to order a kit made specifically for the curriculum I already had. Thanks!

This kit is needed to complete our science course this year. Having 12 children, I didn't feel I had the time to piece a rock and mineral kit together so I purchased the kit suggested in the course. It makes my life easier when someone else does the hard work and gathers the supplies I need and I simply have to click on the link to purchase!

Afshan H on Apr 15, 2020
Our family has thoroughly enjoyed the REAL Science Odyssey series, and this particular resource was needed to complete several of the labs within Earth & Environmental Science. Considering these samples look sizable and they are being used repeatedly throughout the geological portion of the curriculum, I found it very reasonable to have this set on hand for learning and exploration.
Jennifer G on Mar 10, 2020
Because I use R.E.A.L science at home and it is needed for the lab.

Megan L on Nov 13, 2022
which other rock kit do you recommend if this one is not available on time?
A shopper on Dec 18, 2020
BEST ANSWER: You really do need all 16 minerals in this kit to complete all the labs. So.any kit with these minerals will.be fine.
When will this be available?
A shopper on Nov 15, 2020
BEST ANSWER: We think it will be at least until after the first of the year (2021). We have had difficulty sourcing the components.
How big are the rock samples?
Amanda on Mar 10, 2020
BEST ANSWER: They are small-an inch and under. The whole kit with all the samples is in a small box that's about 9" x 6" x 2"
Does it contain a streak plate?
J on Jul 14, 2019
BEST ANSWER: Yes, ours included a streak plate. It is very small, but it still worked. I was able to use it with a class of 8 students.

Perfect for R.E.A.L. Science labs!
Rainbow Resource Center has done a great service by gathering all of the materials for the rocks and minerals labs so I don't have to, all in a good quality box that's easy to store!

Love this!
We really love this rock kit! Only problem was the samples weren't in listed order and several of the numbers on the stickers had rubbed off, which lead to a little initial investigation work, but that part was fun too.

Great Product; Better Packaging Required
If you use R.E.A.L. Science Odyssey then this is the easiest way to get the rocks you need to do the experiments as set out in the book. The samples were a good size and had everything required - even the coin required (important for me since we live outside the US). My only complaint is that I feel the rock samples themselves should have been better protected for postage (perhaps tissues put in each compartment?). Some of them broke and chipped during the shipping process, which was disappointing.
