Students in this level will begin with an easy unit on the harvest and a primer on what is living and non-living in biology. They progress into the ocean units, explore the coral reef, and finish this topic with sharks. Students then move on to land animals and several units from the K-3 sequence are repeated for emphasis, while introducing new units that cover animals more in depth. The second half of the sequence deals with the physical sciences such as space, the moon, and natural formations on the earth. Students at this level complete the sequence with progressively harder topics on human nutrition and health which will prepare them to move forward in their scientific discovery.
Parents should spend about a week on each topic – adding in storybooks, the online resources, and the optional digital PDF worksheets that are included in the K-12 subscription.
Upper Elementary Students might want to try the Solar System series if the Space series is too easy:
The Complete Science of Horses digital download and interactive units are also included with this level. The first 5 units are suitable for 5th grade and up, while units 6-15 are geared more towards middle school.
