Product Description:

This colorful series from Singapore Math introduces early concepts in life science, physical science, chemistry, and earth science to the very young. Each book focuses on one of these sciences, and contains 29 lessons and an answer key. Lessons are a page in length, with each topical lesson containing a short informational segment, follow-up questions or a hands-on activity. The material is presented in its simplest form, and most often the questions repeated at the end simply ask the student what was discussed at the top of the page, although in some cases, it might be helpful to have read a little more material on the subject as well. The range of subjects is pretty impressive, including animal habitats, parts of the ear and eye, seeds and how they sprout, electromagnets, conductors, circuits, mixing colors, evaporation, how sound is made, sinking or floating, seasons, solar system, Milky Way, constellations, meteors, food chains, and more. As an example of a lesson, one lesson in Book 3 features a short paragraph on the properties of some common materials, followed by a blank chart. The students must decide whether some other common materials such as wood, glass, plastic, rubber and others are hard, if they can be bent, if they last a long time, and if they are attracted to a magnet. After that activity, several common materials are listed, and the student must match these to the item or construction it can be used to make. All activities are generously illustrated with friendly, cartoon-like animals and objects, and altogether the books have a "fun," relaxed look about them, even though the concepts are fairly well-presented and a little more serious that I've seen in other early elementary science programs. Inexpensive and easy-to-use, this set could easily make up a complete science curriculum for the early grades, although you may want to supplement with a little more reading, especially with interesting related library books to broaden their horizons a little more. Each book used to be available separately, but it is now sold only as a set of four books. Jess

The sample pages in this book are well organized for children.<br />Each section contains the experiment part and pictures
Kyungjoong J on Oct 1, 2019
I choose this because I wanted something that is hands on and has some experiments we can do. This is my son's first exposure to science and I want it to be fun.

Like to see the new things

I liked the content.
Pallavi D on Sep 13, 2016
Our son loves anything about science -nature, space, earth, weather. LOVES it. This grouping caught our eyes and it goes through so much in simple formats for his age!
Anne C on Aug 12, 2016
I wanted a basic and easy science program. This one was definitely that. Most pages took only a few minutes to complete. We did dig deeper on our own into some subjects, but this gives a good outline of topics if you want to do that. It is not an American curriculum so there are a few words that I had to define for my child like torch instead of flashlight.

A friend gave them to us and my other child wants them too.

Looking for an additional science for MFW 1st grade. My son really loves science and we need more in depth. From the reviews this seems like a perfect fit.

It seems to teach more

Does this include any supplies for the hands on activities?

BEST ANSWER: No, it does not. These are just the four books.
Hello! Is there a teacher's guide for Start up Science books 1-4 by Godfrey Hall?
Lizard on Jun 28, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Hi! I have never seen a teacher's guide for these books, but I wouldn't think one would be necessary. There is a page with an answer key in the back. Most of the lessons are very self explanatory with a short paragraph or two of lesson and then a couple sentences of specific instruction for the page. We have used these books as both a quick five minute fill in the blank science lesson and as an extended couple hours of work with discussions and experiments.

These early science books are so colorful and well put together The illustrations are so cute My kids loved these books and said that they reminded them of a kid's magazine These are a great intro into the basic sciences and my children loved doing the workbooks The price is great too
January 18, 2013
These books are great for when a parent doesn't have time to use a full science curriculum The 4 books are bright colorful and fun When you need something to get science done these are great and can be even better when combined with library books
