Product Description:

This is another in the R.E.A.L. Science Odyssey series and is intended as an alternative to their Earth & Space curriculum. Astronomy is a one semester (18 week) study that includes parts from the Earth & Space course along with new topics in space exploration and scientific modeling. Children accompany Bunny and Dusty (space dust bunnies) as the explore the topics of scientific modeling, solar system, space, physics of light, space travel, cosmology, the universe, and gravity. There is no shortage of hands-on fun in this course, and most supplies can be found around your house. A few specialty items are required which include an inflatable globe, dry ice, as well as scientific and weather thermometers. Children will get to launch a soda bottle rocket, build a solar system, and much more. 248 pgs, pb. ~ Donna

Publisher Description:

You will find R.E.A.L. Science Odyssey (RSO) to be unlike any other science curricula available. Most notably, it is secular. Only scientific inquiry and theory based on empirical and measurable evidence are understood to be valid and standard science in all RSO courses.

Also, RSO courses are written specifically for home and small group use. Packed full of serious science and loads of fun, RSO is an incremental program that gently builds on itself and incorporates mathematics, scientific method, and science terminology. Created with the science novice in mind, you don't need any science background to teach RSO.

In RSO Astronomy 1, the major topics include scientific modeling, solar system, space, physics of light, space travel, cosmology, the universe, and gravity. Students study each planet separately as they travel through the solar system with Bunny and Dusty, the adorable space-dust bunnies. Short lessons are followed by several hands-on labs and activities including mixing and separating light waves, learning why the sky is blue, modeling the Earth/moon/sun system, creating a Big Bang timeline, and making a comet. Space travel and exploration is a highlight of the course. Students make models of several spacecrafts, create a a travel map of the solar system, and launch a soda bottle rocket.

The following is a list of topics your child will learn while completing Astronomy1. Each topic includes one to five lessons complete with lesson story, labs, reading, and other activities. Remember your child will also be having a whole lot of fun. Also included in this scope are laughing, playing, digging, exploring, reading, singing, and begging for more science!

Uncommon Supplies Needed for Course Labs:

Science Thermometer - The liquid in good science thermometer goes down on its own, unlike the liquid in a medical thermometer, which must be shaken down. Some kitchen thermometers will work, but most do not go low enough. You will need a thermometer that will go down to 30 F or 0 C.

Inflatable Globe

Dry ice

Has anyone used this (or another in the REAL Science Odyssey series) with a kindergartener? Do you think a kindergarten student could do this?

BEST ANSWER: I used R.E.A.L. Science Odyssey Life Science Level 1 when my kids were in 1st and 3rd grades. The lessons and activities were basic and fun. It was our first year homeschooling, and I'd bought a different science curriculum first but sent it back after looking through it. We are now on our third book in the R.E.A.L. Science Odyssey series.
Are there workbook type pages in the Astronomy Gr 1-4 . Would I have to copy them from the book?
L P on Aug 16, 2019
BEST ANSWER: There are workbook type pages included with the Astronomy 1 course and they are reproducible. We do not carry already printed student pages for that course, however.
Is there student pages? I can't find the that go with this program.
Cassandra on May 13, 2019
BEST ANSWER: The student pages are included in the textbook. At this time, the additional student pages are not available.
Is this curriculum designed to take a school year? (36 weeks?)
Cassandra on May 6, 2019
BEST ANSWER: No. The book is written to be done over 18 weeks, 2 days a week. My kids love it though.
