Each book of R.E.A.L. Science Odyssey provides a curriculum for one school year that is written for use indoors and out. It covers the microscopic as well as the macroscopic and is sequential, so that one chapter and one grade build upon another. Each topic of R.E.A.L. Science Odyssey is presented in an entertaining, story-like format and is followed by hands-on activities along with background science information, teacher instructions, labs, reading lists, journaling ideas and websites. With R.E.A.L. Science Odyssey, your student will be introduced to more science than you ever thought possible in a way that aims to cultivate a life-long love of science.


R.E.A.L. Science Odyssey Earth & Space (level one) is appropriate for 1st to 4th grade. Topics include weather, seasons, the earth, minerals, rocks, our solar system, and space. Students study the weather and atmosphere with several hands-on labs including making an anemometer, a rain gage, and water cycle in a bowl. Rocks and minerals are studied in depth with students identifying their samples through the same tests used by geologists. Each planet in our solar system is studied individually as students make their own planet book. Earth & Space has recently been revised to include changes to the status of Pluto and the definition of planet.


The following is a list of topics your child will learn during the year while completing Earth & Space (level one). Each topic and/or subtopic will include 1 to 3 lessons complete with lesson story, labs, reading, and other activities. Each topic will take anywhere from 1 to 4 weeks to complete.
