內容簡介 Introduce kids to the excitement of doing hands-on, real science experiments with the Exploring the Building Blocks of Science Book 2 Laboratory Notebook. Each easy to perform experiment encourages students to use critical thinking skills and is organized around the scientific method-the process real scientists follow in doing experiments. Inexpensive common household items and foods are used for the experiments, and the setup time is minimal. There are two experiments that coincide with each of the 22 chapters of the Exploring the Building Blocks of Science Book 2 Student Textbook-44 experiments in all. This Laboratory Notebook accompanies Exploring the Building Blocks of Science Book 2 Student Textbook and Exploring the Building Blocks of Science Book 2 Teacher's Manual. Other supplemental materials are available at www.realscience4kids.com.
作者介紹 Dr. Rebecca W. Keller received her PhD in biophysical chemistry from the University of New Mexico in 1992. She was then awarded a National Science Foundation postdoctoral fellowship in the Department of Molecular Biology at the University of New Mexico, followed by a Burroughs Wellcome Fund Postdoctoral Fellowship in the Department of Molecular Biology at the University of California, Berkeley. As Dr. Keller home schooled her three children, she was unable to find science textbooks that she felt would give her children a solid foundation in the sciences. Her scientific background, coupled with her desire to educate her children, led Dr. Keller to found Gravitas Publications, Inc. and to develop the Real Science-4-Kids curriculum. Real Science-4-Kids is a "worldview-neutral" curriculum that provides students with a solid foundation in the sciences and also gives them the tools to evaluate scientific data on their own. Students are presented with up-to-date scientific facts and the steps of the scientific method, together with the critical thinking tools needed to help them evaluate scientific conclusions. Dr. Keller's books are as philosophically neutral as possible and do not impose any single overall philosophical interpretation such as Darwinism, Intelligent Design, or Creationism. Instead, they allow students to make up their own minds about what the data show. Real Science-4-Kids, with its engaging, kid-friendly text and easy to use teacher-friendly manuals, is used in home, private, and public schools in all 50 states in the US and in many other countries. Dr. Keller's publishing team continues to develop and test products at her Albuquerque headquarters. The website for Real Science-4-Kids is www.gravitaspublications.com.
