Bright Ideas Press CKE Chemistry: A Review

I have seen the Christian Kids Explore Science series by Bright Ideas Press before but until now haven't really looked at it.  I was really excited to have the opportunity to review their chemistry book recently with my daughter.  She loved it and has declared it her "new fave subject".

CKE Chemistry is 300+ pages with 30 lessons in 5 units.  These lessons include hands-on activities, coloring pages, unit reviews, extra reading suggestions, and all about chemistry terms, notations and rules.  This curriculum has an awesome Christian worldview and includes Scripture throughout the lessons.  Check out the Table of Contents.

Another amazing new feature that Bright Ideas Press is now offering with this book is a cd that includes Daily Lesson Plans, Materials Lists, Bonus Literature Study Guide, and All Reproducibles such as: coloring pages, unit reviews, follow-up questions for each lesson, and activity charts.  

The lesson plans that come on the cd really were incredibly helpful to me!  I wish more curriculum came with those.  The lessons in this book were full of interesting information and it was in a format that my daughter (3rd grade) really enjoyed.  They were not too long and held her attention all the way through.  She especially loved the hands-on (aka: experiments) parts of the lessons.  

I was very impressed with this curriculum and would highly recommend it to anyone looking for a Biblically-based science program.  

CKE Chemistry is available for $39.95.  You should pop over there and check out the sample pages, materials lists, and more.
