Category Description for Story of Science (Joy Hakim):

With their typical lack of exciting narratives, science and math can be lost to children who may, at the same time, drink up literature and history. After all, science is often presented as a progression of science concepts to learn - and don't forget the list of vocabulary words! 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

I wanted ideas for types of activities for building my own history of science/inventions course. I'm a biologist and my husband is a physicist, and we have long felt that teaching history this way makes more sense than by memorizing the name of political leaders. I am hoping this approach will help my children understand the widespread and long-term impacts of innovation.

I'm really looking forward to starting this series. My youngest (going into 6th) complained about science always staying on one topic for too long. I thought maybe the way this is organized more by time than topic would switch things up for him next year.

I read the Cathy Duffy review and this series looks like a really interesting way for our 11 and 13 year old homeschoolers to learn science together.

We read the first few chapters of the book, and decided that it would be fun to have activities to go along with the lessons. Most reviews said that the teacher's manual is needed in addition to the student guide. I can post a better review after we try it.

BEST ANSWER: Quest guides are only available for the first two books in the series (Aristotle and Newton). The quest guides are excellent. There is a downloadable guide to the Einstein book available through the National Science Teacher's Association. It's not as developed as the Quest guides, but it's still quite useful. This is a fantastic series of books! I'm glad I didn't let the lack of a third Quest guide stop us. Happy learning! Enter

Great for instruction
We are only a week (4 lessons) in but we are loving this resource. The "links" really help you to dive deeper and enjoy the curriculum more.
