About the Inspiration for Real Science 4 Kids:
Category Description for Biology (old edition):


Category Description for Focus on Middle School (5-8):

Each 70-page student text is formatted similarly to a high-school text, with each chapter broken down into smaller segments on more specific topics. Although the text introduces concepts most children won't encounter in their elementary science curriculum, the explanations are clear and are presented in a way that they can understand. To give you an example of the types of topics covered, in Chemistry, chapters discuss matter, molecules, types of chemical reactions (including combination, decomposition and exchange reactions), acids, bases, neutralization, polymers, DNA, and more. Biology covers taxonomy, cells, photosynthesis, plants, protists, life cycles of the butterfly and frog, the water cycle, and more. Physics includes chapters on: force, work, potential and kinetic energy, motion, electrical energy and charges, electromagnetism, conservation of energy, and so on. Astronomy is the newest edition in this series and its 80+ pages include chapters on: What is astronomy, astronomer's toolbox (telescopes, Mars Rover, Hubble, etc.), earth, moon and sun, planets, solar system, other systems, our galaxy, other galaxies, and the universe. Each text contains ten chapters in all, split up into smaller segments on more specific sub-topics. Each segment focuses on one topic, and is short enough to read at one sitting without taxing short attention spans. The pages also incorporate colorful graphics and simple diagrams, and important words in the text areprinted in red. A summary wraps up each chapter, recapping the main points kids shouldtake from the reading, and a combined glossary index is included at the end of each book.

This looks like the biology I had years ago. I wanted the taxonomy information for my granddaughter, and the experiments look easy and fun.

Is the content similar enough that this will this work with the 3rd edition lab and student book? (I don't mind having to rematch page numbers and such).
Rachel on Nov 15, 2020
BEST ANSWER: The information we have from the publisher would indicate that you cannot use an older Teacher Manual with the 3rd Edition Lab and Student Book.

"The new Focus On 3rd edition series is an expanded version of the 2nd edition series and incorporates some of the content found in the Building Block series. The 2nd edition series and the 3rd edition series are essentially the same format, with the 3rd edition series having an expanded chapter sequence and additional content. The 3rd edition chapter sequence is different than the 2nd edition series.  Therefore, you cannot use a 3rd edition textbook with a 2nd edition lab workbook or a 2nd edition teacher’s manual. Also, 2nd edition quizzes and study notebooks cannot be used with 3rd edition lab workbooks, teacher’s manuals or student textbooks. However, you can move from a complete 2nd edition subject to a complete 3rd edition subject. For example, if you have finished Focus On Elementary Chemistry 2nd edition, you can move to the new Focus On Elementary Biology 3rd edition as the next subject."

I had been wanting to get this curriculum for a while but was unable to get it because it is so expensive This last year I finally was able to purchase this curriculum and I have to say that I am utterly disappointed The teacher manual does not go along with the student text at all There is no supplemental work You read all week and then do an experiment I don't think my daughter learned one thing from this last year of science We did the whole series of Astronomy Biology Chemistry and Physics I will not be continuing this I have purchased Elemental Science and already from just planning it for the next school year I can see that it is going to be a good year A big change that is well worth it
