Do you have a teacher/school supply store near you? We have one, and it has tons of thematic books on various science topics. The store near us carries a variety of publishers such as Carson-Dellarosa, Frank Schaffer, and Scholastic. They usually have various lesson plans and activities for different grade levels, so you could use one for all of your kids.

Another idea (and what I did at those grade levels) is to decide on a topic and then do an internet search. For example, I put together lessons on animal classification from the internet - I just did an internet search for lesson plans on each animal type, and found plenty to keep my daughter busy (and she learned a lot to boot!). I just added books from the library.

For books, I've used Great Science Adventures from Common Sense Press. You could use this for all of your kids. We've used several of them, and my daughter enjoyed them. Depending on how many of the activities you do, you could probably do at least 2 of the books in a year; maybe 3. You can look at them at - there may even be sample pages.

Also, check out Janice VanCleave experiment books from the library - she has books on all science topics for that age range.

A couple of good books for studying the human body are The Body Book from Scholastic, and Blood & Guts: A Working Guide to Your Own Insides (author: Allison).

Usborne and DK or Eyewitness books are also good for this age range and they have them on all science topics. Scholastic has some great hands-on activity books (such as The Body Book - you make a paper body - and one on earth science, but I can't remember the name. You might search for the Scholastic web page and then look at their science materials.)

I hope something in this helps
