Great Way to Correlate World History With Science  Apr 14, 2007
I purchased this book to utilize with our homeschooling curriculum "Introduction to World History." Ancient Science covers science from pre historic time to the discovery of the Americas. Each section covers a particular period in history with experiments to compliment the historical setting. We are planning to use Ancient Science, Usborne Book of World History and Usborne Time Traveler for our science and history curriculum this coming fall.
Great way to teach hands-on science to children  May 26, 2006
I love the projects in this book. As a homeschool mom, I like to teach about the "history" of subjects and not just the usual science basics. I want my kids to know how science was started, and who helped develop some of the modern day advancements in science that we use today. This book is great for teaching the beginnings of science. Measure the earth with Erastothenes, find out just what it was that made Archimedes cry "Eureka!". This is definitely worth owning if you'd like to help your children "see" what the ancient scientists saw.
