Category Description for Story of Science (Joy Hakim):

If this describes your situation and you're tired of dragging them through the three branches of science, why don't you spend a year studying the history of science? Your guide, Joy Hakim, who has already sparked the interest of countless young readers in history with her History of US series is ready to take you on a tour of scientific discovery from the earliest civilizations to the high-tech science of today. Now, if you're still thinking about History of US, push that thought away and instead imagine a set of hardcover books so gorgeous you could leave them on your coffee table. And beneath those glossy jacket covers you'll find a story so engrossing that you'll want to keep reading! We begin in the first chapter of Aristotle Leads the Way with the Sumerians and other Mesopotamian civilizations. Although the chapter is

BEST ANSWER: Each Hakim book would make a good supplement to another program since they have very short chapters that skim history quickly with an emphasis on the development of science. They are simply the history of science told in a narrative voice, but there are no experiments, notes, or other pieces that would make it a program itself. All three books could easily be read in one year. You could make them part of a complete program if you used them as a jumping-off point for deeper study into topics that are only touched on but interest your student. Chapters are short (4-5 pages) with so many pictures, quotes, and other sidebars that it is not heavy in text.
Is there no teacher and student guide for this book yet? Will there be?
