If you and your children are looking for an interesting yet useful
hands-on way to learn science, this book is for your family. Science 3
for Young Catholics
was written by a home-schooling mother who was a
third grade teacher in a Catholic school.
Written for one semester, it
contains eight chapters on a variety of topics: Machines, Matter, Food
Chain, Habitats, Soil, Cycles in Nature, the Water Cycle, & Energy. The
information is conveyed in story form by Catholic home schooling
parents, Mr. and Mrs. Martin, with their children responding. In this book, the parents present
situations or activities to teach a lesson. The children learn by
helping their parents around the house or in the yard or garden. Delightful fun illustrations
are by the prominent artist Ben Hatke.
End of chapter reviews contain Thinking Skills, Discussion questions, a
Vocabulary list, and Science Activities. The second semester book, Health 3 for Young Catholics, is a companion book. Both of these should
be a "big hit" in your house! Answer Key included in the back of the book. Copyright 2015. Approximate dimensions: 8.5 x 11 inches. Soft cover. 122 pp.
