In the French Fries and Fizzy Pop! leveled reader, fundamental science facts in chemistry are explained through simply written text and colorful, fun illustrations. Children will discover that atoms are like little building blocks that make up everything we touch, taste, smell, and see. Atoms link together to make molecules. Molecules cause different foods to have different flavors, such as sweet, sour, salty, and bitter. We taste things because the tongue is able to detect different types of molecules.
A pronunciation guide of scientific terms is included. 24 pages filled with engaging, colorful illustrations. Reading Level 1-3, Interest Level 2-5.
About the Author
While home schooling her three children, Dr. Woodbury was unable to find a curriculum that provided a solid foundation in science. She left academia, and using her scientific background coupled with her love of learning, she developed a series of science books for kids.
The Real Science-4-Kids curriculum provides students with a solid foundation in science and gives them the tools to evaluate scientific data on their own. "We should not rely on the 'experts' but instead learn how to critically evaluate every scientific claim," states Dr. Woodbury.
"In these uncertain times with so many social, scientific, and economic problems, it is not enough to teach our kids what to learn. We must also teach them how to learn, and we must encourage our kids to learn from others. Part of learning from others is to know how to engage in productive debate."
The Real Science-4-Kids curriculum, with its engaging, kid-friendly Student Textbooks; Laboratory Notebooks full of real science experiments; and easy to use Teacher's Manuals, provides kids with a solid science education in chemistry, biology, physics, geology, and astronomy. This curriculum is used in all 50 states in the US and many other countries.
Dr. Woodbury and her publishing team continue to develop and test new products, including leveled readers and mini books, at the Real Science-4-Kids Albuquerque headquarters.
