Believe it or not Homeschool Conference time is already in full swing and families are thinking about what curriculum they will be using next year. Last year at this time I had pretty much decided what we would be using, this year I haven’t had much time to think about it :-), however for those of you that are, I wanted to give you an update on the Science Curriculum we are using.
My children love Science so we try to incorporate as much of it as possible into our homeschooling, they do Science as part of Classical Conversations, they also participate in a two hour Science class once a week. At home we have been using Nancy Larson Science 1. If you would like to sample some of their lessons they have preview samples available on their website.
What I like about this curriculum is that it is easy to use and implement. It is well scripted and although it has specific topics in a specific order, I have found that you can skip around. In fact we have skipped topics and gone to the ones that we are currently studying about in CC. I like to be able to reinforce what they are learning or sometimes study a topic I know we will be focusing on as a preview of it.
