The Universe in My Hands by Mary Daly
illustrated by Ana Braga-Henebry
2006, Ye Hedge School, book and binder-divider set
This is a science program for elementary school that is recommended by Catholic Heritage Curricula and Mater Amabilis. Here's a description from the publisher's website:
This program includes:
"1. A booklet about the 45 orders of magnitude -- sorted by powers of ten -- which form the universe as far as we know it. The booklet goes very slowly through the nine orders readily recognizable to ordinary sight -- from a meter down to a tenth of a millimeter, and then up to ten kilometers. (It is really essential to use metric measure for this exercise; it is not assumed that the student already knows it.)
2. A set of 45 cardstock dividers, numbered and color-coded, one for each order of magnitude. These are to be placed in a notebook and materials collected illustrating objects at each magnitude are to be placed in each section by the student. These materials can be pasted pictures, drawings, reports, web printouts -- whatever best represents what the student has considered at that order of magnitude, and according to his level of comprehension."
