Science in the Industrial Age is the fifth book in a hands-on, multilevel elementary science program that introduces scientific concepts using history as its guide. This course spans a wide array of scientific fields from the early 19th to the early 20th century. Because the course covers science as it developed, it discusses a wide range of topics including medicine, human physiology, cell biology, evolution, chemistry, geology, electricity, magnetism, heat, light waves, sound waves, radioactivity, and conservation laws. Students learn about the science that was being discovered at the time as well as the lives and personal beliefs of those who were discovering it. As a result, students can see how a person’s worldview affects his or her scientific conclusions. Because of its unique design, the course can be used by all elementary-age students. Each lesson contains an interesting hands-on activity that helps illustrate the scientific concept that is being discussed, and it concludes with three different levels of review exercises. Students do whatever review exercise matches their specific level of understanding.

This book is a full year’s science curriculum of 90 lessons. Experiments and activities use household items or things that are sold in supermarkets, drug stores, or hardware stores. Note: Answers to textbook review questions along with optional tests & answers are found in Science in the Industrial Age Helps & Hints purchased separately.
