Fascinating Stuff to Know
Much of medicinal knowledge is relatively recent, historically speaking. Students may not know about how brutal surgery was before anesthetics or consider hand-washing a discovery! Each chapter ends with a worksheet of True False/ multiple choice "test" questions. (We did them aloud). This isn't a science curriculum but a history OF the medicinal sciences. I chose to supplement it with some elementary/middle school history encyclopedias from Usborne publishers.

Used this book with Memoria Press Middle School Science Online class. Super super interesting and captivating book. 12 year old son loved the history of medicine told in science story format.

Almost done with this book and it has been a good one I have made sure that I can hear each chapter that my son reads because it is so interesting to me I have learned so much myself You can easily get through three chapters a week Several questions are at the end of each chapter It has been something that has kept my son's interest and he enjoys reading about the history of medicine It has blown him away that men with great pride had actually held back discoveries and treatments that could save lives So good Biblical teaching can be taught with this book and when a man had a relationship with God it is mentioned in this book as well Love it! i found the price to be reasonable as well

This has been a great resource for us We have used it to supplement history science and reading There are questions at the end of each chapter that we have used for comprehension I would suggest this book for children ages nine and up depending on reading ability and sensitivity to the content There are several pictures throughout the text that a younger child may find disturbing but that have been used well to present the information It is very easy to use with little or no preparation I feel this book works best for visual learners I think I appreciate the comprehension aspect of this book the most as other books on this topic I have seen leave this out Great value at Rainbow Resource
