What Color Is Newton's Apple? Cover

This book includes more than 50 carefully structured lessons in chemistry and physics for children ages two to eight years old. Dr. Smith's approach is based on the fact that young children are good at asking questions and seeking answers through their own direct action. Most children learn best when they act as experimenters and researchers, and the lessons in this book have them working with a variety of materials in many different ways.  

Each lesson has nine parts: purpose, thinking skills, vocabulary, prerequisites, materials, introduction, continuation, closure, and learning check. The science problem-solving skills include problem finding, hypothesis formulation, hypothesis testing, data collecting, solution finding, solution testing, and communication of solution. These tasks allow children to practice the higher-level thinking skills of analysis, synthesis, and evaluation.

In this substantial curriculum, the lessons are fully developed and easy to follow, making it a good resource for homeschoolers.
