Atoms. Crystals. Phase changes.
Noeo Chemistry 1 guides your child through an exciting first exploration of the world of chemistry. We’ve packed your Noeo box with all the books, lesson plans, and experiments you need to turn your home into a science lab on day 1.
What's in Chemistry 1 (Grades 1-3)?
1. Living Books
Beautiful field guides, biographies, picture books, and more.
2. Experiment Kits
Materials and instructions for 70+ experiments
Comprehensive course of study
Chemistry 1 starts with the basics of the atom and builds step-by-step to more complex material like chemical reactions. By the end, your kid will have a solid grounding in chemistry for deeper scientific study.
Everything in one box
Experiment kits and built-in lesson plans mean you can start exploring the atom and creating chemical reactions as soon as you open the box. Skip the Ready, Set, move straight to the Go!
Chemistry isn’t just about atoms and reactions—it’s about bubbles and fertilizer and Marie Curie and salad dressing. We’ve selected every book in Chemistry 1 to make the world come alive.
Every week your kids will get their hands dirty in the real world by brewing oobleck, making fossils, putting eggs in acid baths, and more. And with easy-to-read experiment guides, your kids can do detailed experiments practically on their own—while you get a jumpstart on dinner.
Have multiple kids who want to discover chemical reactions by making colloids and creating compounds? Perfect! Chemistry 1 is designed so kids across multiple grades can share books, experiments, and lab manuals, or have their own.
Want to add an impromptu zoo trip to your school week? No problem! With options for both a four-day and two-day per week schedule, Chemistry 1 enables you to adapt your curriculum to your calendar.
Once your Noeo Box arrives, you have 60 days to open it up, read the books, mark up the guides, and do experiments. All we ask is that you use it.
If you don’t like your experience, send it right back for a full refund of your order—no questions asked.
This has integrated excellently with our other homeschool curriculum. My multi-aged children all have access points for the material and the experiments are fun and easier to do than cooking dinner! Great program
I do this program with my 3rd grader and my 3 year old joins in most experiments. I love the variety of topics covered and that there are almost always practical application experiments to go along with the concepts. There are times where the experiment doesn't work, but we talk about thoughts on why it didn't work. Other times the experiment doesn't have a connection, so I sometimes skip those. However, overall the experiments really drive home the topic. The Chemistry l package is meant for grades 1-3 so it can seem a bit easy, BUT the kids really are learning a ton. I don't think they need to be challenged to their full potential on everything, it's ok to just learn too.
One thing I would really like to see change in future editions is the three books. There has got to be a way to at least consolidate the student book with the experiments. There doesn't need to be so many blank pages and duplicate information between the experiment book and the teacher book. There should only be a reference in the teacher book for the corresponding page number in the experiments, not another run down of it. I find using three books together to be a bit annoying. There is needed information between all of them and it just feels unorganized even though it is. But again, overall this curriculum is seriously the best!
This is our first year homeschooling and our first grade daughter loves this program. The program is laid out well and easy to follow. She is excited dive into the lessons every day. We have found the pace a tad slower than expected so we have adapted it to our schedule and it seems to be working. The book selection is great which makes the lessons really easy. So far she has enjoyed the experiments and has even repeated the first two with friends.
I love that this is an all in one kit even with the supplies aside from some common household goods. My son enjoys it and little brother enjoys listening in on the books as well as participating on the experiments. My one gripe is the instead of 3 different manuals/books it could somehow be condensed to 2.
Overall I like this program. I am using it with my 2nd/4th grader and was torn between the chemistry 1 and 2, but didn't want to miss anything presented in level 1. We have found the pace to be too slow in some areas (too short of a reading and not deep enough follow up questions or discussion prompts) and most of the experiments to be too short or silly. Would have really liked the experiment part to be more substantial. I also don't like how the schedule is not consistent, with some weeks having the experiment suggested on different days, some weeks have less readings and more experiments, etc. I need to keep experiment days separate from reading/lesson days on my schedule and I ended up having to tweak a lot to fit a consistent schedule rather than just open and go each week. The kids really like the books we are reading and I can tell they are interested in the subject and gaining a lot of knowledge.
