This class was tough.
I would recommend this course, however I would not recommend taking it as an online course. I have taken it twice and failed both times. The labs are so difficult to do at home and if you have questions about the labs it is impossible to get them answered in a timely fashion to complete your labs. I loved the content just not the form of the class I took.
This course highlights so many of the basic forms of science that you would need to know in order to be a successful Elementary educator. I learned basics about movement, gravity, chemical reactions, graphing and plotting, and the scientific method.

Advice for students:
If you are considering this course please take it at your home college and not as an online course. You would do much better and you can discuss your labs with people who are there engaging in the same experiment as you are. I would also make sure that you are ready to take plenty of notes for your tests.
