The Teaching Company has a series that is meant to add to chemistry, explaining some things in more depth. Libraries often carry Teaching Co. sets.

For labs, Experiences in Chemistry by Julicher is good for home school.

Another option might be to call his class "introductory chemistry" and just use a mix of things including the text you have, maybe building a periodic table on the wall, experiments, video demonstrations, a book about all the elements, and so forth?

My dd used Friendly Chemistry for part of her credit. It was a bit hard to navigate since it's more designed for co-ops, but it has some well-thought-out hands-on things to "see" what the formulas are doing.

Best wishes in your efforts for your son,
