Publisher Description:

NEW for 2020!

Brand new philosophy, brand new books, brand new experiments, brand new worksheets! Teach your children to think like a scientist, to use the skills and practices that real scientists use. All experiments tie directly to the content each week. Sonlight’s great books provide the context, while the experiments allow your children to experience scientific practice for themselves.

From the heat of the sun to the eyes of an insect, Sonlight Science K teaches your children to think like a scientist. They will use real scientific skills and practices as they explore rainforests and encounter reptiles, insects, plants and more. Science K builds on children’s natural curiosity. It also includes a high-level introduction to forces, matter, and other STEM topics that will set them up for a lifetime of learning and application.

Every week, your students will engage in an experiment directly tied to the rest of the content you study that week. Beyond preparing students for what we know today, this level will begin to teach them how to learn for the future. Literature provides the context, while the experiments allow your children to experience the scientific process for themselves. Do you know what makes wind blow? Or why a bee’s honeycomb is a hexagon? Have fun with your student as they apply and appreciate what they discover.

The Sonlight Science series is in the process of being updated to meet Next Generation Science Standards (currently Level K through Level D). There are, however, some additional changes to note: experiments directly line up with the readings and the addition of a Discover & Do Science Experiment Book . The Discover and Do Science DVDs are being phased out in the updated editions and are available as a download from Sonlight for an additional cost . These optional resources help families who are not able to complete the hands-on activities. The included Discover & Do Science Experiment Book contains teaching information, step-by-step instructions, and worksheets for all planned activities and are complete without the video component. Newly, updated 2022 kits include the Discover and Do Science Experiment Paper Packets , which are the templates and worksheets needed to complete the experiments. These are also included in the Discover and Do Experiment Book . See individual descriptions or contact us to verify stock. Levels E through H have an updated 2020 copyright. Although not aligned (yet) with the Next Generation Standards, out-of-print books have been replaced and the Instructor Guides and Student Activity Sheets updated to align with the book changes. See individual descriptions for more information.
