    This audiobook is a companion to the Science in the Ancient World Textbook. 
    While it is possible to learn a lot of science by just listening to the audiobook on it's own, the textbook is required to gain the full value from this course. 
    Science in the Ancient World is the second book in a hands-on, multilevel elementary science series that introduces scientific concepts using history as its guide. Because each lesson is built around an activity or experiment, it is engaging for all K-6 students. In addition, there are three levels of review for each lesson, so the parent/teacher can choose the depth at which each student is expected to grasp the material. The course contains roughly 90 hours of instruction, 35 of which are composed of hands-on activities. 
    The course covers the scientific work of natural philosophers who lived from about 600 BC to the early AD 1500s. It concentrates mostly on what these ancient scientists got right, but it does spend some time discussing what they got wrong, because even the mistakes that scientists make can sometimes advance our understanding of the natural world. Of course, when the students are taught something that is now known to be incorrect, they are made aware of this fact! 
    Because the course covers science as it was developed, it covers a wide range of topics including human anatomy, medicine, optics, heliocentrism, geocentrism, sound, music, magnets, how steam is used to generate power, the motion of objects through a medium, combustion, levers, pulleys, plant growth, plant anatomy, tree ring dating, the atmosphere, astronomy, the basics of graphing, plastics, density, water flow, friction, and erosion. Throughout the course, students learn that most of the great scientists who lived from AD 500 to the end of this time period were devout Christians who did science because they thought they could learn more about God by studying His handiwork.

    Fifteen-year-old Jennifer Brice Hamilton has been subjected to her mother’s new way of life ever since her parents’ divorce two years earlier – a move to a lower tax bracket in Chicago, an undesirable school, and her mother’s newest boyfriend – Phil. Jennifer rebels. Her mother’s answer to the “handful-slash-Jennifer” is to pack her up and send her to her grandma’s, whom Jennifer has not seen in almost three years. Her mother’s lusty plan is for Jennifer to reside there till Christmas. Jennifer captures her life in Flamingo Junction, Florida with her grandmother in an ongoing diary of sorts – a sketchbook that she has titled JENNIFEROLGY – THE STUDY OF JENNIFER. Jennifer’s grandmother, Mama Rudeen, lives in a retirement community called Camelot in north Florida. Mama Rudeen is not what Jennifer expected, nor are her grandmother’s friends – the gals: Miss Maggie Pearl, Miss Addie, and Miss Gaynell…and the guy – Sir Stuckie. Jennifer envisioned octogenarians sitting around waiting to take their last breath. She discovers that retirees have a zest for life. And, more importantly, they defined to Jennifer what unconditional love truly means. Maybe it takes a retirement village to raise a child.

    The re-launch of Walter Dean Myers's series about a middle-school crew of newspaper reporters keeps going strong! 
     
    Zander and his friends are in trouble—again. The freedom of expression they've enjoyed by publishing their own school newspaper has spread all the way to England, where kids from a school "across the pond" are now contributors to their own school's most talked-about publication. When photos start to go alongside the articles written by kids, things get suspicious. Zander, Kambui, LaShonda, Bobbi—and a bunch of students from Harlem's DaVinci Academy and London's Phoenix School—come to learn that words and pictures in a newspaper don't always tell the whole story. 
     
    With his signature on-point pacing and super-smart characters, award-winning author Walter Dean Myers's acclaimed series delivers another awesome audiobook about a group of middle-school misfits who are becoming the coolest kids in the city.
