Descripción del producto

Elementary Science Education: Building Foundations of Scientific Understanding, Volume II, Grades 3-5, is a seamless continuation of the popular and successful Building Foundations of Scientific Understanding: A Science Curriculum for K-2 [Volume I].

Veteran scientist, teacher and author Bernard J. Nebel, Ph.D., has designed a curriculum that is unique in several ways. It minimizes technical terminology. It recognizes that learning entails an ongoing developmental progression that is reinforced and solidified by being put into practice. It acknowledges that children are capable of more sophisticated thinking than they’re generally given credit for.

Building Foundations of Scientific Understanding puts these principles into practice by:

Focusing on developing critical understanding of the basic ideas and principles underlying each of the major areas of science

Providing lessons that build in a logical, systematic and stepping stone manner, each providing a natural review of what went before and providing a platform for what comes next

Encouraging students to use their lessons in interpreting everyday experiences

Developing students’ cognitive skills by guiding them to derive conclusions through their own observations and rational thought

Understanding the constraints of budgets, Nebel has also designed these lessons so that they require a minimum amount of specialized materials and equipment.

Teachers and home-schoolers will also be happy to discover that a particular science background is not required and, in fact, as they conduct their lessons, they will learn along with their students and by doing so, will be excellent role models for them.

“Best elementary science curriculum I have found.”

April Duritza

“Far surpasses any other material I have run across.”

Deanna Schmidt

5.0 de un máximo de 5 estrellas A worthy successor to the green book (BFSU #1) 5 de febrero de 2012

We're just a few lessons away from completing this 2nd level of Nebel's BFSU series of science books, and here are my thoughts:

If you are new to BFSU, you may want to start with the green book, which is strongly prerequisite for the blue book. There are some pretty advanced concepts that aren't normally taught at such an early age in traditional curricula. (I'm thinking about kinetic and potential and other energies.)

We've had a lot of fun with this book. Some of our highlights:

*Directly observing Brownian motion by observing diluted whole milk under a microscope
*Measuring displacement and understanding why and how objects sink and float
*Constructing our own thermometer
*Observing convection currents over a stove top, then applying those observations to Hadley cells in the atmosphere
*Directly observing microorganisms' motility: flagellum in a Euglena, cilia in a paramecium, and amoeboid movement in an amoeba. It was awesome.
*Learned how things fly, from helicopters to airplanes to birds
*Spent a great deal of time studying center of gravity/center of weight. Who knew there were so many ways to demonstrate this concept?
*Learned about ground water, run off, and related water cycle topics, I, as a mom, was only dimly aware of

We are in the middle of simple machines and will study a bit of electricty before moving on to BFSU 3 (the purple book).

I will say that compared with the green book, BFSU #2 doesn't correlate as well with it's bibliography. For example, in the botany section, we learn about meristem cells and how plants grow. You won't find any elementary curricula describing meristem cells. All the other kids are learning about xylem and phloem. Xylem and phloem. All the children's nonfiction botany books describe xylem and phloem, not meristem cells. Nebel believes it is more important to study how plants' cells grow and differentiate, particularly in contrast to animal organisms. I was only able to find correlated reading in an advanced botany textbook that was not cited in Nebel's text.

Like BFSU #1, the blue book requires preparation, preparation, preparation. This is true of nearly any science curriculum, though. If you are homeschooling and teaching science at home, you need to be organized to be successful, and this is particularly true for Nebel.

Unlike BFSU 1, you need to purchase a high quality compound microscope adn a triple beam balance. We also purchased a stereo microscope. The scopes are not cheap, but then, so is private school, and we use it so much outside of BFSU.

BFSU does not include any worksheets, exams, or other school-y busy work. Students are expected to take their own notes in their science notebooks. I resisted this at first, but now I see the value of this. I now sit down with each student individually as they document what they understand and know, and it gives me a chance to assess their knowledge and make sure everything it set in their minds. I wish I had done this sooner, as this text does not provide any other sort of assessment. If you favor a curriculum that includes worksheets, fill in the blanks, quizzes, tests, and general busywork, this is not the curriculum for you.

We have been more than pleased with the science education we are all receiving and look forward to BFSU #3. Thank you, Dr. Nebel!

I LOVE Dr. Nebel's science books. I wanted to provide this review having read a negative review that was very well written and made me think twice before ordering. This book does require effort from the teacher. It is not exactly an open and go book. He leads you in a process where you provide or demonstrate a concept to your student and then through Socratic questioning lead your student to the key ideas of the lesson. That cannot be done with tons of worksheets and textbook materials. It requires observation, discussion, experimentation - and it is AWESOME. He walks you through how to create these aha moments for your child and then gives you suggestions on how to have your child demonstrate their learning. You do have to take the time to read the material and make your plans prior to performing the actual lessons. But I love these books and I especially love how the lessons very purposefully build upon each other. These books teach kids how to think like scientists not just how to memorize long lists of vocabulary words. FYI these books don't have pictures, just straight information on how to communicate complex ideas to your kids.

I love this program. What I think is exceptional about Dr. Nebel's curriculum is that he teaches science in all four threads (Nature of Matter, Life Science, Physical Science and Earth Science) so that children will ultimately be prepared for rigorous study of high school level biology, physics and chemistry. Elementary science education in the US public schools is generally not systematic in its approach and does nothing to ensure that children are building an understanding of scientific concepts. We would never expect children to just jump into Algebra, Geometry and Calculus without preparing them with a systematic foundation in mathematics; however, most elementary science education is basically a hodge podge of fact memorization and "cool" experiments where the actual science behind the experiment is never fully explored, leaving children ill prepared for the demands of high school science. I have looked at (and purchased) a number of other programs (e.g. Noeo Science, Great Source Sciencesaurus) and this is not just the only program that really teaches science in this manner, it is also more engaging, more hands on, and the only curriculum which doesn't seem to be full of busy work. BFSU is not for everyone. It is not open and go, and if you have gaps in your own science background (as I do) some lessons may seem intimidating; but, if you are serious about your child's science education and you don't want to spend hundreds of dollars (as you would with a program such as the Supercharged Science online classes) this is a wonderful curriculum.

I am a homeschooling mom of 6. My own personal background was in science and at least one of my kids shows a very STRONG inclination towards science. I have looked for years for a curriculum that I thought would meet our needs. I wanted something complete but understandable. I wanted something not too expensive and relatively easy to implement. But, most importantly, I wanted something that wouldn't be just a check-in-the-box for the state requirements. I wanted something that would spark my children's interest to further explore the scientific world surrounding them. This has been that curriculum for me. I am using both the K-2 and 3-5 curriculum and I think they are wonderfully designed and provide a true basis of scientific understanding for my children--which to me is more important than any scientific facts they will memorize. I highly recommend at least taking a look at the program if you're looking for real science for your children.
