Bright Ideas in Science CurriculumChristian Kids Explore Chemistry is authored by husband and wife team, Robert W. Ridlon, Jr. and Elizabeth J. Ridlon. Their approach to teaching chemistry is simplistic: Each of our lessons develops a progressive understanding of chemistry that will build confidence. Kids and parents can explore and develop a firm and lasting foundation for the future. The curriculum presents the concepts of chemistry from a Christian worldview perspective.

Overall, we have been pleased with this curriculum as it lends itself to the Classical Education and Charlotte Mason philosophies.
