I am using a science book through USBORNE(http://usborne.com/). They do not have a lot of experiments. A lot of science deals with experimenting. I was wondering if anyone has been using any kind of book that just has experiments in it and explains what is the purpose of the experiment.

Hi Barti,

I've used two excellent books with my kids. The first book, which was good for younger kids aged up to 10 or so, is called "The Scientist's Apprentice" I no longer have it so I can't tell you who published it or give you the ISBN#. I believe though that it would be easy to find at any homeschool convention. That's where I got it if I remember correctly. You might even do a title search and turn it up. The next book which is good through middle school age, is called "Science Smart," published by Main Street. The ISBN# is 1-4027-0514-X. Both of these books use household stuff, contain plans, photos and/or drawings and have forms that the kids report findings on that could be copied. For my highschoolers, I use the Apologia curriculum by Dr. Jay L. Wile. I've used three of his programs; General Science, Biology and Chemistry and all have been excellent so far. The programs are complete with text, lab manual and all supplies can be purchased. The General Science and Chemistry experiments use household stuff but equipment can be purchased with the books. I hope this helps.

Rich
