Product Description:

To use this book from The Thinking Tree, you will choose 4 books and 2 documentaries about each scientific subject. Students will also build something in their Minecraft world based on these subjects and use gel pens/colored pencils to complete the activities in the book. Topics include: botany, chemistry, geology, meteorology, physics, technology and zoology. The book provides a framework for the content the student chooses to use. They will be asked to draw a scene from a documentary, write a review, write a paragraph on what you learned, draw a diagram or illustration, create a comic strip, find 4 words with more than 10 letters and write the definitions, doodle while listening to an audio book, and more. The pages mostly repeat in the 7 different science topics. Nearly all content comes from outside sources. The Minecraft theme is scattered throughout. Uses the dyslexie font in places. 280 pgs, pb. ~Sara

Category Description for Thinking Tree Journals:

This series of workbooks from Thinking Tree combines nature study and state studies with a focus on the various state birds, flowers, and trees. Each book features two pages per state plus vocabulary pages. While the first page is primarily a nature study (i.e. botanical name, describe habitat, etc.), the second page is more general. These pages include state-specific questions (ratification dates, capital cities) and a creative writing assignment (poem, short story, or unique state tidbit).

Chose for son to do on his own - he enjoys minecraft and wants to learn more about the different science topics.
Brenda M on Dec 9, 2021
With 5 kids (all boys) I needed my home school science curriculum to be engaging and self directed. I like the independence this book affords which helps when you have students working on different levels.

We do a library book and video based science curriculum mostly, and right now my son takes notes in a boring notebook. I think he'll love this fun and organized way to direct his note-taking and learning!
