My daughter has friends who are public schooled and home schooled. All her friends made positive comments on her (Steps) course.  One of her public schooled friends asks every visit to see what is new in the science notebook.  She says my daughter “gets to learn so much more” than she ever learns. K.O., Homeschool Mom

The first Science course for Step 3 students, ages 9-10 who read fairly well, and for older students still developing literacy before starting Step 4 studies.

What is science? What must one know to understand science? What should one know before studying any of the sciences?

Making use of STEPS remarkable approach, scientific concepts normally reserved for older students (when they're taught at all) are made exciting and easily understood! Hands-on science, the young student will take his first step into a fascinating world.

A self-contained course, complete with tests, answer guides, and a very useful teacher's guide to help the student through any difficulties they may encounter. The course specializes, as do all STEPS courses, in developing the student’s understanding and ability to think and form his own ideas and opinions. Structured to be fun and challenging, and to increase the student’s vocabulary as well as of science.

32 lessons plus tests and answer guides.

This course includes:

  • Observation
  • The Scientific Method
  • Facts vs. Beliefs, and Proofs
  • Theory
  • Experimentation
  • Cause and Effect   

Just wanted to say thanks once again! My DS14 has gone from 'hating' school science to now being fascinated and actually considering aiming for a career in zoology eventually! For a kid who had no goals at all as far as further education he's now excited when he talks about working with animals in the future. Your science curriculum has shown him that science doesn't need to be boring and dry. We now have big long discussions about all kinds of scientific theories and chemical reactions.

He was just in his bedroom doing his creative writing and all I could hear were chuckles. It's so exciting to see him enjoying learning! I never thought I'd ever see this. He wrote a 1400 word essay the other day because he just didn't want to stop!

I really like Steps, and appreciate their approach to learning. My 2 oldest children did this course, with minimal input from me. I observed and guided and monitored, but they did the work. A great way to learn the basics of science, and personal responsibility.

I have been using your science and creative writing curriculum since 2013. I absolutely love it. It's thorough, simple, and straight-forward. My daughter is the smartest 11 year old I know. Thank you for your dedication to quality and value.

My 9 year old daughter is absolutely loving this course.  She loves the hands on lessons and is having a blast while learning so much. She is so excited with it right now that it's all she wants to work on these days. Thanks for an engaging and fun course.  S. W., Homeschool Mom
