Category Description for Sassafras Science:

What a delightful way to learn science! Read a story, perform experiments, keep a log, and learn some science. This Charlotte Mason style, hands-on, inquiry-based science program might be just what your children need to understand and enjoy science. From the same publisher as Elemental Science, this program follows the Sassafras Twins as they travel the world during their summer break, learning the science content that they failed to master during their previous school year.

The underlying storyline is that the Sassafras twins felt science was boring and pointless. Despite Mom and Dad's warnings, they continued their lackluster approach towards science. Consequently, they must forego attending camp with their friends and instead spend the summer with their crazy (or is he?) Uncle Cecil. Uncle Cecil and his lab assistant, President Lincoln, developed a series of invisible zip lines and special carabineers that would take Train and Blaisy (Uncle Cecil's names for the children) on the adventures of a lifetime as they learn to love science. Readers will join the twins through 300 pages of adventures around the world as they learn about zoology – mammals and their habitats – in volume one; and then continue the journey through tombs in Ethiopia, a landfill in Texas, and much more as they explore human anatomy in volume two. Children in fourth through sixth grade can read the adventures on their own, or parents can read them aloud to all ages.

The Sassafras Guides to Zoology (Vol. 1) and Anatomy (Vol. 2) offer the road maps for your travels. These books contain 18 chapters that correspond to the chapters in the texts. For each chapter there is a summary, information and instruction for the Official Sassafras Scidat Logbook, encyclopedia readings, a list of additional living books on the topic, an experiment, vocabulary, copywork & dictation, additional activities, and optional schedules. The schedule offers a two- and five-day pacing option for the course. Encyclopedia suggestions are Kingfisher First Encyclopedia of Animals (#29186) for younger children and DK Encyclopedia of Animals (#14569). Experiments for chapters 1-3 and 16-18 are in the guide, but you will need Science Around the World by Janice VanCleave (#27250) for the experiments in chapters 4-15. For your convenience and planning purposes, there is a complete "living book" and supplies list at the front of the guide. An appendix includes reproducible pages and is limited to reproduction for family use only.

The Official Sassafras Scidat Logbooks become a record of each child's journey as he/she visits each location with the twins. The logbooks include illustrations, maps on which the child colors or marks locations, a place to record project information, and pages for notes. The Logbook is not reproducible, so you will want one for each child. There is a fair amount of writing, so some of the activities may not be appropriate for younger children.

Sets include the Official Scidat Logbook, Sassafras Guide and the Reader for that topic.

Use the book as a fun read-aloud or add the activity guide and logbook for a complete science curriculum. Zip line your way through the African grassland, Egyptian dessert, Canada, Amazon rainforest, Australian forest, Chinese bamboo forest, the Arctic, and the Atlantic Ocean with Blaine and Tracey – then look forward to your next adventure with Uncle Cecil! ~ Donna

We love the way this science course is laid out. Our child is autistic and the text book keeps his attention and he learns so well. We have previously done the Zoology books...terrific!

We have enjoyed the first books in this series. It is a fun and gentle science introduction for elementary students, and great for this non-sciencey mom!

What are the additional materials needed for the experiments ?
A shopper on Jun 26, 2022
BEST ANSWER: They vary. It may be ice cubes and salt or things easily on hand. Occasionally I’ve had to buy something but it was easy to find, dowels or alum. Nothing was tricky or expensive. We had one experiment we couldn’t do because it fell during the wrong season where we live. Anytime I didn’t do an experiment or was not able to or just didn’t want to, I was able to find a YouTube video that worked well.

We love the Sassafras kids!
We love this series! The stories set the stage and there are lots of easy resources, book lists, websites, library books, and experiments that you can add to increase comprehension for different grade levels. You can also print a coloring book from the publisher’s website for a few dollars to use while you read. There are bad guys and danger and the story portion is not where you will get the majority of the educational elements but you will hook your kids. We have also learned a TON of geography and culture because of their world travels.
