This is wonderful...exactly what I was looking for! Review by
My 6 year old daughter and I love science time now! This curriculum is just what I was looking for. I like the Christian perspective, as well as the scientist perspective all in one. Wonderful! The terms used are easy for the parent and student to learn and yet very informative information. Very well writen, easy to read. The projects are so FUN! I also like that you can work the program at your own pace. My daughter wants to keep going after each lesson. Sometimes it's even hard for me to put it down. Highly recommend. Your students will have so much fun and they will love to learn.
We couldn't put it down Review by
My 6-year-old son's fascination with astronomy prompted me to purchase this book, and boy were we impressed! Every time we sat down to read it or do the projects and activities, his eyes just lit up -- he always wanted to do more! And I so appreciated the Christian perspective. When we visited a planetarium and a film shown there referenced "billions of years ago..." my son was quick to point out, "That's not right, God made the solar system." I'll keep using this series as long as I can!
AWESOME Review by
I pulled my 2nd grader out of public school after Christmas break. I have never homeschooled. A friend of mine emailed me what she taught for her kids. She started Astronomy with her kids when they were in 2nd grade. Not ever having seen the book or anything, I wasn't sure what to expect. But I just bought what was on her list. When I got it in the mail, I just didn't know what to say. FINALLY someone has it right! This book is beyond words. I love the layout, the projects, and all the really interesting facts in each chapter. There is no set lesson for each day. But I find myself reading on the couch or outside with my girls. I would read a chapter or two, and my girls would say, "MORE MORE!!!" I will be buying everything from this curriculum from now on. I bought the kit that went with it and it is worth it. I rate this 5 out of 5 stars. These books makes learning so much fun!
Such a great curriculum! Review by
My daughter really enjoyed this book! She learned (and retained!) a lot. I will definitely use this again with my younger children. Be sure to check the publishers site for downloadable notebook pages!
Great Product! Review by
We just finished with the first lesson and the first project and my kids loved it. They were so bored with our other science lessons and I was tired of searching for all the necessary stuff to go along with the projects. I would highly recommend this curriculum and get the recommended kit to go along with it. It's great.
