The study of science had an interesting history that we often don't read about. Studying the scientific ideas of the ancients gives science a personality. They weren't always right, but they figured out an impressive amount of information using primitive tools and logic...until they ran into the intellectual brick walls of lacking better tools to take them further.
This book loosely mirrors Susan Wise Bauer's Story of the World by bringing history of science to life. There are companion workbooks available for students, as well as further volumes. The text is written at a middle school comprehension level, and could easily be used as the basis for jumping into specific areas of study.
