too sporadic
I tried using this curriculum for several lessons with my 3rd and 4th graders before finally giving up. The history part was really interesting but the topics were too sporadic. We studied lengths of shadows one day, how fire contains water the next day (which, essentially was the opposite of what the lesson was trying to teach--that water isn't in everything--so using this particular experiment seemed counterproductive to the lesson), and the protein molecules in milk in another lesson. My children and I couldn't connect the dots because they weren't really there. Studying scientists in historical order makes for interesting reading, but I can't use this and expect retention. It was disappointing because my son LOVES history.

Science in the Ancient World Delivers!
How would you like to travel back in time and learn about great contributors to science like Hippocrates, Plato, Aristotle, Galen, and Leonardo da Vinci to name a few? Science in the Ancient World is the second volume following Science in the Beginning in this series of elementary science curriculum written by Dr. Jay Wile. It is a chronological science curriculum that explores important scientific concepts in science before Christ was born through to science in the early Renaissance. The lessons explain this era of science in context to the day and age in which the scientific ideas were discovered and studied and how they are viewed today. This curriculum constantly engaged our 2nd, 4th, and 5th grade students. Just as Science in the Beginning is structured, I am overjoyed that the multi-level approach was part of this program as we loved learning together. As a mother of 10, time is a precious commodity and somehow Dr. Wile seemed to know this when he designed his hands-on experiments. Most, if not all, items needed for the experiments you will find around the house. Sometimes we did the experiments multiple times because they were so much fun. (I even heard my older high school and college teens lamenting that they never had the chance to do such cool experiments.) Adding to the fun factor was a high level of learning retention! Science concepts were effectively displayed through the fun experiments, lessons, and end of chapter questions. Our children's lab books became full of drawings along with answers to key objective questions for each lesson. This home educator could not be more thrilled. The chronological study of science was very appealing as we moved through our own history study and Science in the Ancient World blended beautifully. We are looking forward to continuing our science learning adventure with the next volume, Science in the Scientific Revolution!

this is a great text, borrowed from a friend and loved it so purchasing for my elementary/middle school kids!

We used the text Science In the Beginning last year, and I was so very pleased with it. The lessons are so well written, clear and concise. The experiments were engaging for all of my children (11, 9, 7, & 4). And EVERY SINGLE ONE OF THEM worked! We can't wait to try Science in the Ancient World this year!

Linear timeline based Science that corresponds with timeline of our Mystery of History

I used Science in the Beginning this past year and liked that each lesson had an easy and fun experiment, the lessons could all be done in 15 minutes, and the review questions at the end of each lesson were adaptable for various ages and interests (ie, drawing, creative writing, etc.). I expect the same from Ancient World.

My daughter finally loves science due to this series! It is a painless way to engage children in the world of learning many science topics.

The first book in the series was fabulous. We loved how simple the experiments/demonstrations are!

I am looking for a great reference to use with a small group of home schooled students who are studying science with me.

My 9 year old has thoroughly enjoyed the first book in Dr. Wile's series. He looks forward to science and all the hands-on activities. appreciate that the book is written clearly and simply enough that he can do most of it on his own.

We've been using Bob Jones curriculum for year and we couldn't be happier. The kids love it and it's easy to teach!

This is for our Science enrichment: We are involved in a co-op and my son needed it for an ancient science lab class.

My daughter loves experiments...but I don't usually take the time for them. This curriculum has a simple experiment for each lesson...and it REALLY helps you to get a grip on what is being taught. Lessons build on previously learned items.

Our school chose this curriculum. Excited to try it out!

"Classical Roots has been a great tool in keeping Latin and Greek Roots in my children's minds. It has helped them with spelling and with being able to deduce the meaning of words."

We're just finishing up Science in the Beginning, and it has been fabulous!! Jay Wile is a phenomenal teacher - one who not only possesses, but skillfully imparts, vast information. The daily experiments and conversational reading voice make this subject a favorite in our homeschooling day! I've been learning from him since high school, during the loose-leaf edition of his first chemistry book! It's a joy to keep learning alongside my kids, now as a homeschool mom! Keep up the great work, Dr. J!

Linear timeline based Science that corresponds with timeline of our Mystery of History
Jenny A on Aug 1, 2018
Is it necessary to begin with the first book in this series? I'd like to start with Science in the Ancient World, since it correlates better with our history study, but I don't want to confuse my kids (or myself) if the content of this book builds on essential information provided in the previous book.
User on Mar 30, 2016
BEST ANSWER: No. You can certainly start with Science in the Ancient World. I did it this year with my son in 5th grade, without doing the first book, Science in the Beginning. None of the lessons in it require information from the first book. The fact that Dr. Wile uses early philosophers/scientists as the hook to hang his lessons on in a chronological fashion, makes this series work in a spiral way. Topics get revisited as each scientist builds on it, but previous information is reviewed at that time. You won't have any trouble using the book without any previous science exposure. I highly recommend it!
