Overview

This rich, multidisciplinary curriculum to accompany Joy Hakim’s Newton at the Center covers astronomy, physics, and chemistry from Copernicus to the Curies, from the fifteenth to the twentieth centuries. The course of study is divided into seven units. Each unit includes an introduction (with background, materials list, and standards) and nine class sessions. The Teacher’s Quest Guide includes embedded reading strategies to facilitate greater comprehension; hands-on science experiments to encourage learning by discovery; timeline activities; several review and assessment activities for each unit; and even a time-traveling cartoon character, Professor Quest, to summarize the main point of the lessons. Multiple cross-curricular links suggest additional activities in language arts, history, art, and other subjects to extend learning. The accompanying Student's Quest Guide includes all necessary student sheets. This curriculum is ideal for traditional physical science classes, enrichment programs, and home-school settings.
