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 notice in the table of contents, the chapters arent taught in order - anyone find this difficult or annoying or do they "flow" well?

BEST ANSWER: I noticed this as we going through the book, but for the most part it was pretty easy to follow and is the result of tying some chapters together for the workbook that are not sequential in the book. I really do recommend the teachers guide. It has a lot of extra info and optional ways to explore the book including science experiments and ties to the art of each time period. This makes it really easy to design a cross-curriculum program. Good luck!
Is there a Quest Guide for all 3 Hakim books?

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
