I love the style of this curriculum. It makes things come to life instead of beating it out in workbook pages. I used this as a read aloud to my son and he couldn’t get enough. I’m excited for the rest of the volumes! {Review by sarahlynn}

Reading the story of the Sassafras twins science-filled, zip-lining journey is a great education on its own! However, we here at Sassafras Science want to provide you with the tools you need to take our novels to the next level.

So we offer activity guides, SCIDAT logbooks, lapbooks, coloring pages, and experiment kits for you to add to your student’s science-learning journey.

Here’s a bit more about each:

  1. Activity Guides – These guides will help you create a full plan for science education around our novels.  You will find chapter summaries, notebooking suggestions, related scientific demonstrations, copywork or dictation, and coordinating activities. The activity guide partners with the SCIDAT logbook which includes notebooking sheets to record what the student are learning.
  2. SCIDAT logbook – Each logbook includes open ended notebooking pages complete with images and spaces for your students to fill. You will find overview sheets with maps, subject specific pages with images and space for narrations, glossary sheets with vocabulary cards, and space to record additional narrations, copywork, and dictation assignments.
  3. Lapbooking Guides – Each lapbooking guide leads you through a survey of an area of science using a series of eight mini-lapbooks to document the journey. The lapbooking guide includes vocabulary, lapbooking templates, and a coordinating activity for each chapter.
  4. Coloring Pages – The coloring pages have sheets for the illustrations along with ones for every SCIDAT topic covered in the book. Each topical coloring page has a large, black line illustration along a key fact sentence for the students to learn about the topic.
  5. Experiment Kits – Each our experiment kits provide the hard to find and difficult to get materials you need for the experiments found in the Sassafras Science series. These kits are compatible with both the activity guide and the lapbooking guide.

Go ahead – enhance your journey with our support materials!
