Welcome to Book Seeds: Profiles in Science (Elementary Grades) By Blossom & Root!
Using inspiration from beautiful and captivating children's literature selections that explore the lives and contributions of great men and women in science, you and your child will investigate nature-based S.T.E.A.M. concepts, complete nature journaling activities, prepare delicious recipes, and celebrate the magic of words.
Our Profiles in Science series was designed for elementary grades (ages 6 to 12) and focuses on the men and women whose contributions to science and STEM have shaped our world. These issues can be used as a stand-alone science curriculum, to enhance the science program of your choice, or as unit studies to pepper throughout your year. They also make a great compliment for families using Blossom and Root First Grade.
To use Book Seeds: Profiles in Science By Blossom & Root, simply read the book selection (for this issue: Solving the Puzzle Under the Sea: Marie Tharp Maps the Ocean Floor by Robert Burleigh) as many times as you like, and complete the activities in the order and schedule that works best for your family. Most families complete the activities in a single issue of Book Seeds over a two-week period.
Frequently Asked Questions:
1) Is this a secular resource?
Yes! Our program is 100% completely secular. However, it can also be easily incorporated into a Christian homeschool by adding your own bible study. However, you may wish to screen the content prior to using it, as our Book Seeds issues reflect a secular point of view when it comes to science.
2) Will this product be mailed to me?
No. Our product is a digital download and will be delivered to you as soon as your payment is processed. You can send it to a local print shop to be printed and bound, or keep it on a tablet or computer for reference.
3) Can I print out multiple copies?
Your purchase is for your family alone. Feel free to make as many copies as you like for your own family. If you would like to use activities from Book Seeds by Blossom & Root for a co-op, please contact Kristina at email@example.com for permission first. Book Seeds by Blossom and Root may not be resold (at curriculum fairs, online, or anywhere else.)
4) How long will it take to do this curriculum each day?
You may go at whatever pace suits your needs. A single Book Seeds issue takes most families about two weeks to complete, spending around 30 minutes per day on an activity.
5) Are there any worksheets or workbooks included? Do Book Seeds come with the book they are inspired by?
Some issues include an occasional worksheet to track discoveries. You will need to purchase or borrow the book (for this issue: Solving the Puzzle Under the Sea: Marie Tharp Maps the Ocean Floor by Robert Burleigh) before beginning, as it is not included in this purchase. This purchase is ONLY for a single issue of a Book Seed magazine full of activities inspired by a children's book.
