Publisher Description:

The science adventure begins for Blaine and Tracey Sassafras! In this volume, the twins (and you) will learn all about the amazing animals that can be found around the globe.

You'll visit the African Grasslands, the Amazon Rainforest, and the Alaskan Tundra as you read through the book. The twins will learn about mammals, reptiles, birds and so much more from their fascinating local experts. Don’t miss a minute of their summer-long zip line journey with their crazy Uncle Cecil!

The Sassafras Guide to Zoology has chapter summaries, SCIDAT logbook information, encyclopedia readings, additional book lists, experiments, copywork/dictation, activities, quizzes, and more! It gives you the tools to turn your zoology journey into a complete science curriculum for your elementary students.

The Official Sassafras SCIDAT Logbook: Zoology Edition is authorized and approved by the Sassafras twins. This logbook gives the student space to record what they have learned as they follow the animal adventures of Blaine and Tracey Sassafras.

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

Kids find it fun but there needs to be revisions.
There are a LOT of errors in the books. My child overall enjoys the story and wants to continue with it though. The premise is basically adventure followed by an expert spouting off information followed by adventure. To me the way the kids actually learn about the science is boring. But my kid doesn't mind it. I would not use this as a full curriculum as it's quite disjointed. We used it as an add on after finishing our main science and it was perfect for that.

Great story
I bought this for my 8 year old son. He loves it! It keeps him interested as the lessons aren’t too long. Knowing he needs to fill in information in the logbook helps make him pay attention to the reading. My 11 year old daughter is using a different science curriculum but even she can’t help but listen to the story.
