Explore the basics of chemistry in this 14-lesson unit (146 pages). Through simple experimentation, interactive learning, and text, children will discover how our world is affected by molecular-level changes. In addition, children will develop safe lab habits and be taught about the hard work and dedication of historically significant people in chemistry. This unit is designed to match the open-and-go, faith-based approach that The Good and the Beautiful curriculum is known for, with hands-on learning that is essential for studying chemistry. Recommended for Grades 5–7, though some younger children may enjoy participating. (Note: Most The Good and the Beautiful science units are family style for Grades K–6.)

The Good and the Beautiful curriculum takes a general Christian worldview, focusing, not on the doctrine of any particular Christian church, but on high moral character and basic Bible principles such as gratitude, honesty, prayer, and kindness. Parents can add in their own doctrinal beliefs as desired.
