Science is something that I really enjoy, but don't seem to be very good at teaching! At least not in the early years. In the beginning of our home school journey, when I just had one kindergartener at home, we worked through the books from My Fathers World. She enjoyed them, she even told me the other day she remembered a lesson from when she could not have been more than six of the moon and how it was a reflection. She enjoyed it! We used this little book, and just went through it one page at a time...
As we moved on through the grades, we started needing just a little more with our science curriculum... so we switched to Ken Hamms Answers in Genesis.. I have LOVED AIG for years and years, I love their magazines, I love hearing him speak, I love all their articles.. I just love his ministry, so it was a blessing to use it as a science curriculum!
This was a great curriculum. The chapters were short, easy to read and easy to understand. It was inexpensive, and the kids really loved it. I enjoyed the creation based accounts of how the earth came to be, and the kids enjoyed the worksheets. It is a great curriculum and I highly recommend it to anyone who is considering a science curriculum!
This year, we decided to try something new, so I finally tried to check into the Apologia science curriculum.. and I'm SO glad that I did!!!
My kids love sea creatures. The aquarium is one of their favorite places, and they love the Disney Oceans movie. This was a perfect fit for us this year, and I have found in it my new favorite science curriculum!!!
I actually found this second hand at homeschoolclassifieds.com, and purchased the notebooking journals from Amazon. I am so pleased with this curriculum! It is a Christian based curriculum, and I love how they integrate God into the teachings. Again, the lessons are easy to read, but they are a little longer than AIG. But its still a good lesson, we enjoy them very much! The notebook journals are a great way to keep the kids interactive with the lessons! I have very artistically driven children, so its especially helpful for them!!!
I can't say enough about Apologia! It's absolutely my favorite, across the board. What are your favorite science curriculum?
