A while ago someone posted a link here to a great looking science curriculum for elementary school.  It really seemed to emphasize the method and thinking of science, and it wasn't one of the big, well known ones.  It was a secular curriculum.

 

Does anyone know or remember what it might be?


 I like the mind to be a dustbin of scraps of brilliant fabric, odd gems, worthless but fascinating curiosities, tinsel, quaint bits of carving, and a reasonable amount of healthy dirt.

I bought it and am checking it out right now.  I really like it (and I was a science major).

Just an FYI you can get the Ebook of Building Foundations for Scientific Understanding from the publishers website for $5! I just bought it the other day. http://outskirtspress.com/webpage.php?ISBN=9781432706104

Dang, I ordered it from Amazon.  Oh well.  I am really enjoying it, I think it's a great looking program.

My kids enjoyed setting things on fire today to demonstrate the release of stored energy for lesson C-1!
