This rich, multidisciplinary curriculum to accompany Joy Hakim s "The Story of Science: Aristotle Leads the Way" covers astronomy, physics, and chemistry from Mesopotamia to the Middle Ages. The course of study is divided into five units. Each unit includes an introduction (with background information, a materials list, and standards correlated to the narrative and teaching materials) and nine class sessions. The "Teacher s Quest Guide" includes embedded reading strategies to facilitate greater comprehension, hands-on science experiments to encourage learning by discovery, timeline activities, and several review and assessment activities for each unit. Students will enjoy a time-traveling cartoon character, Professor Quest, who summarizes the main point of each lesson. Multiple cross-curricular links suggest additional activities in math, language arts, history, art, and other subjects to extend learning. The accompanying "Student's Quest Guide" includes all necessary student worksheets. This curriculum is ideal for traditional science classes, enrichment programs, and home-school settings."
