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.

Best option out there for elementary age chemistry.

This is suggested for 3rd grade, as a follow up to biology in 1st grade and earth science/astronomy in 2nd grade.

We have used others in this series, and enjoyed them. Secular science is important to us, and this fills that need.

Because it is secular, comprehensive, and makes science easier than trying to piece things together.

We are about to finish up the Earth and Space Sciences from R.E.A.L Science Odyssey and it is by far my boys' favorite curriculum we are using this year! When I told them we would be doing Chemistry next, my 8yo asked if it would be like our current science with all the fun activities. Everyone has been so pleased with the hands on fun, short but engaging lessons and all the fun we have had and both are looking forward to starting a new book!

I found the program great for homeschooling.
Aisha S on Sep 13, 2017
A tutor recommended it. We used it REAL Science Odyssey - Chemistry our homeschool science "class" last year and the kids learned a lot!
Elise P on Aug 19, 2017
This was recommended by a friend and I was able to look through her book. I liked how it's laid out step by step and has a variety of activities for my daughter to complete. Looking forward to it!
Cindy B on Jun 27, 2017
I've been using Real Science Odyssey for several years for two different children with different learning styles. The text is fun and easy to understand. The experiments are not too difficult, use normal ingredients found at the supermarket, and my children have learned a great deal while having fun!
Anna S on Apr 19, 2017
I love how I can buy one curriculum and use for both of my daughters, ages 7 and 10. It looks like a fun, and gentle introduction to chemistry. Appears to be very user friendly.

I love the idea of introducing kids to chemistry early so it's familiar once the add meat to the bones in older grades.

Because it is NEUTRAL Science and it is hands on

I've used the life and earth science versions from this company. I enjoyed the layout and kids had fun!

Really like R.E.A.L. Science
Doreen L on Jul 1, 2016
Science is easy to teach with this book. I wanted more than a textbook. I wanted to do experiments with my child, and this book does the job well. The experiments are fun and most of the materials you can find in your home. My daughter looks forward to doing science.
Lisa T on Jun 25, 2016
Good reviews by parents.
Lida S on Jun 14, 2016
I want a fun, informative science program for my kids. However, I also want it to be teacher friendly - I have high hopes for this one!
Christy L on Apr 13, 2016
We are using this as our main source for science.

Is this a binded book or is it loose pages?
User on Jun 8, 2018
BEST ANSWER: It's a bound book like a paperback, but the pages are perforated so you can tear them out.
is there a teacher guide?
A shopper on Aug 29, 2017
BEST ANSWER: This book is a teacher guide with student workbook pages in it. In the very beginning of the book there is a suggested timeline to make this book last the entire year. Each lesson has a script you can read off of or you can explain the lesson your own way. For the labs it tells you the procedures and also the answers to the workbook pages is also included. This is a great curriculum, I have used biology, earth science and the chemistry, and I plan on using the physics curriculum this year. There is also separate student workbook pages available for purchase, but I just take them out and copy them out of the book. You can also buy the hard to find lab materials or if you want to just make sure you have them you can purchase a kit at home science tools dot com.
R.E.A.L. Science Odyssey: Chemistry Level 1 Student Pages
R.E.A.L. Science Odyssey: Chemistry Level 1 Student Pages
Does this contain student pages or do you have to purchase those separately?
User on Aug 14, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Notebook pages are included for every lesson, and for each lesson students will do one or more labs with a corresponding notebook page. You can copy notebook pages for your family if you're working with more than one child. If you don't want to copy, you can purchase just the student pages separately.

Does this have a lesson plan, quizzes, and tests?
A shopper on Oct 15, 2016
BEST ANSWER: No. it doesn't have quizzes or tests, although is does have crossword puzzles and such to check retention. This doesn't really have lesson plans, but it is very user friendly, you just open it up and go with it. The big thing is having all the supplies for the experiments (there is one almost everyday), there is a list at the front telling you what you need to have when. We really enjoyed this curriculum, I felt like it taught chemistry in a very thorough, fun and interesting way, my daughter learned A LOT.
What kinds of materials will I need to complete this course? Are they things I probably have around the house or will I need to purchase extra materials?
User on Jun 27, 2016
BEST ANSWER: There are a couple of extra things....a science themometer if you don't already have one from previous science studies, some copper insulated wire, there is a lab that calls for helium filled balloons. The majority of the supply list is grocery items. You can view the complete supply list and the first few chapters on the publishers website.

Fun intro to chemistry for young kids
So far I am absolutely loving this curriculum for my second grader (my preK guy participates too and enjoys it a lot). It's a wonderful introduction to chemistry at a level that young children can understand (and fairly low-prep for the parent/ teacher which I love). There are plenty of simple activities to keep things interesting. I would highly recommend it to anyone wanting to add science into their homeschool day.

I love this series
My kids are currently 1st grade, 4th grade, and 6th grade. I have used the life, earth & space, chemistry, and currently using physics. I loved the Chemistry one. I think the experiments were great and my kids and I had a blast with this curriculum.

Great chemistry for elementary students
Both my child and I like this chemistry. She likes it because it is engaging, and I like it because it is all laid out, ready for me to teach.

Perfect for my son
We just started using this book and it is my first try and homeschooling. The book is fun and holds my sons interest. I was concerned that there were no tests but I am seeing that we don't really need them. Ethan is learning from the experiments and the reading. Tests were always a problem with him at school even though he knew the material. He is having fun and no stress from tests! I ask him questions and he has all the answers. I really like this curriculum!
