That sounds great! We're doing a semester of Chemistry right now, using Elements: The Ingredients of the Universe. I really like it. I like the elements.

Last year, my ds made a periodic table on the wall. Each day, starting w/ the first day of school, he made a 3x5 card w/ the element of that number and we taped it up in it's proper location. On the back, I wrote several facts about each element that he told me. When you flipped the card up, it was readable. It kept us on track for what day of school it was in the year and gave him a great foundation for this year.

I have to look for the books you mentioned at the library!
