Atoms & Molecules: a Unit Study in 10 Days - Chemistry Curriculum

Available now!

Are you looking for an introductory chemistry curriculum for your homeschool science this year? Do you have elementary and middle school aged children? If so, keep reading!

I am delighted to announce that in June I will be bringing you 10 days of chemistry lessons focused on atoms and molecules for elementary and middle school aged homeschoolers! Of course, the lessons can also be used in public school, but they are written specifically for homeschoolers!

Do you want to do more experiments with your kids? Do they want to learn the basics about matter and its building blocks? Has it been a while since you learned about atoms and molecules?

If the answer to any of those questions is "YES!" then you will want to join me in June for this free curriculum! There will be 10 days of experiments, games, and other activities to learn all about atoms! The lessons and activities will be geared towards kids in 6th grade, but will be appropriate for 4th-8th, depending on your kids' skills and knowledge. They would even provide a fun, simple review for high-schoolers!

UPDATE: The "live" lessons are all completed! Thank you if you joined us as we posted each lesson!!  You can now buy the entire 10-lesson unit in one convenient download below!!

You can also "preview" each lesson, one at a time, below!
