Announcements/Science changes for year 8 and 3
The AA is thrilled to announce that the new AO Science for both the Full and Lite Year 8 is up on the website today. We're excited, and we hope you will be too.

There is also an addition to year 3. A Drop of Water by Walter Wick is a short book, with some terrific experiments and demonstrations that are perfect for this stage. We recommend reading the book through and marvelling at the the exquisite closeup photographs, and then rereading each portion as scheduled and doing the activity.

Thanks to the Living Science group. Your help is invaluable. [Heart <3]

Enjoy!

Yes, many thanks to AO, the AA, the Living Science Group and to YOU, Jeanne, for your untiring efforts to continually improve what one would think cannot be further improved upon. And thanks to Santa, too.  [Oopsies! I'm so embarrassed!]

Ds is very excited about the extra book in Y3. He was jumping up and down around the room. Thanks for all the hard work :)

Oh. My. Word.

If you havent had a look at the new year 3 book, do so right now. It is utterly, completely, gorgeously enthralling.

*I* want this book for ME!! Quick...BookDepository here I come!!

Oooh goody...something new for Y3. I was debating doing Science Lab in the Supermarket for the second half of our year (in the fall), but this looks fabulous....

I just finished year 3, and I am getting the book anyway, for my science-loving daughter. (Being the 4th, she almost never gets a new book.)

I ordered myself a used copy right away: I was afraid this announcement would drive the price up. [cheesy grin]

That's a good idea, Laura. I was thinking of doing it over the summer (term 3), but since it is scheduled in terms 1-2, and the note says to adjust for seasons, perhaps it is a fall/winter book? (No idea, I very briefly skimmed the chapter titles.)
