Chemistry 1 (Grades 1-3)
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.
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.
The experiments don't work, the lessons aren't in depth enough and trying to keep track of what we are doing throughout the 3 main books is too confusing. My kids like the story books though.
My kids and I love the ease of Noeo Science. Every lesson is planned out for us and is never cumbersome to follow. We all really enjoy the book selections. I personally like that a couple of optional experiments or activities are thrown in the week in case the kids want to take a topic further, and the weekly main experiments have been a hit. We’ve found a winner in homeschool science!
Our family first did the biology course. Overall, my kids liked it so we decided to try out the chemistry. They like this one even more! There are frequent experiments and the experiments are very hands on which really piques my children's interest and curiosity. Some books could use a little more explanation (e.g. elements) but, overall a VERY good course. Would definitely recommend this to others looking to give younger kids a good foundation and catching their interest early on in science.
This curriculum is full of exciting books and incredible content. Some of the concepts I wasn't taught until highschool but my son is understanding and retaining it all so well! It's all written in such a way as to be really accessible and engaging. The experiments are fun and interesting. I will definitely be getting their other courses.
