Core Science MS-1 is a supplemental science curriculum for students entering grades 5 through 8. By performing the experiments in this kit and completing exercises in the accompanying workbook, students will lay the groundwork for success in natural science courses in school. Students will also gain familiarity with commonly used science terms, methods, and tools, preparing them for future studies. The content is correlated to the National Science Education Standards for middle school level physical and life science. The full-color, 96-page experiment manual provides illustrated instructions and explanations, and the black-and-white, 48-page workbook guides students through each experiment and allows them to record their findings. Ages 10 and up.
