New for 2021!

This engaging, new Science course combines BookShark’s signature, literature-based approach with the Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS). Through captivating literature and experiments, our highly academic program utilizes NGSS crosscutting concepts to unify the study of science and engineering through common application.

Science E students will learn about energy; earth’s systems, including rock formations, tectonic plates, and natural hazards; the properties of waves; and physical characteristics of living things.

The literature includes three captivating Usborne resource books, starting with the Usborne Illustrated Elementary Science Dictionary, a student friendly dictionary that explains nearly every concept of basic science. The other two resource books focus on the abilities certain animals develop to survive and an in-depth look at planet earth.  Students will also read illustrated books about waves and energy, an interactive workbook that directly teaches computer coding, and a biography about a famous Hollywood inventor.

Experiments range from: simulating animal nerve connections with an electrical current, building a methane gas collection system, creating an electromagnet, and many more!

Can I use this package with both of my children?

Yes, you can! If your children are within three years of age, they can share the same BookShark Science package. Please note that you will need an extra set of Science E Student Activity Sheets for each additional student (one set is included with the Instructor's Guide), as well as the consumable workbooks TOPS 32 - Electricity and TOPS 33 - Magnetism.

Can my students share the Science Supplies Kit?

Yes! If your students are willing to work together as lab partners, they can share the resources in the Science Supplies Kit E. You may want a second kit if you prefer that each student perform every experiment, or if you have more than two scientists sharing the Science package.

Do I need a microscope for Level E Science?

There are several optional microscopy experiments scheduled in the Science E Instructor's Guide and we think your children will love the opportunity to see the invisible world that is revealed under a microscope lens. Please note, however, that a microscope is not required for a successful Level E year. The illustrations within the Complete Book of the Microscope (included in the Level E Science Package) are perfectly adequate to show your children what they need to know.

If you would like your children to perform the microscopy experiments, be sure to purchase the Microscopy Science Supplies Kit E and (if you do not have one) a microscope! We recommend the BookShark Ultra Microscope. Our professional model microscopes can be used and re-used up through High School.

For a lower cost alternative, please consider purchasing our palm-sized Miniature Magnifier/Microscope instead. It is powerful enough to do the beginner projects scheduled in the Science E Instructor's Guide and does not require purchase of the Microscopy Science Supplies Kit E.

The decision to homeschool our daughter, Alexa, was an easy one. Choosing a curriculum that worked well with her goals and schedule was a little more difficult.
