The Chemistry Level I Student Text covers 10 chapters of the fundamentals of chemistry with abundant use of color graphics to make learning chemistry fun for elementary grade students. The topics taught include:
- Getting Started Keeping a Laboratory Notebook
- Chapter 1: Matter, Experiment 1: "What is it made of?"
- Chapter 2: Molecules, Experiment 2: "Making Marshmallow Molecules"
- Chapter 3: Chemical Reactions, Experiment 3: "Identifying Chemical Reactions"
- Chapter 4: Acids, Bases and pH, Experiment 4: "Making an acid-base indicator"
- Chapter 5: Acid-base neutralization, Experiment 5: "Vinegar and ammonia in the balance: an introduction to titrations"
- Chapter 6: Mixtures, Experiment 6: "Mix it up"
- Chapter 7: Separating Mixtures, Experiment 7: "Black is black?"
- Chapter 8: Energy Molecules, Experiment 8: "Show me the starch"
- Chapter 9: Polymers, Experiment 9: "Gluey goo"
- Chapter 10: Biological molecules: Proteins and DNA, Experiment 10: "Amylase action"
Many of these topics are not covered until junior high or high school in traditional education settings. Our field test have shown that elementary school children are capable of learning these concepts at and earlier age, and will do better in science later on, when introduced to these topics at an earlier age.
