The Usborne Book of Knowledge serves as the key book for Science C. Other longer books include Planet Earth and Weather. Marie Curie is the highlighted scientist.

The 30 primary experiments this year deal with weather (meteorology), the human body, and batteries (electricity). Remember: you have all the experiment instructions, a DVD showing each one in action, and all but the most common experiment supplies you'll need included with your Science C package!

Discover & Do Level 2 DVD

Go to product page »

In Discover & Do, Level 2, you'll observe more than 75 different experiments that are part of the Science C curriculum. Not only that, you'll learn how to do the experiments yourself... in the comfort of your own home!

You'll learn how to make a flashing lighthouse, why electricity and water don't mix, why you get dizzy, and how to take your own fingerprints. You'll make your own thermometer, complete a circuit, create a model lung, and much more.

We've always said that Sonlight is "great for your kids, AND great for you," and the Discover & Do DVD's were made with that in mind. As a busy parent who might not have the time to demonstrate the experiments his or herself, your kids will be able to watch the experiments and learn do it on their own.

Filled with fascinating activities and peppered with humor, this DVD is an ideal supplement to your children's education.

"We love Justin! We had to pause the DVD when he was doing the magnetic puppet thing, my boys were laughing so hard. One was literally rolling on the floor laughing... I tend to be pretty picky about my science resources, but I sure love this DVD. I'm seriously considering ordering the first one for my oldest son's 9th birthday... It would probably be his favorite gift."
