The lessons are already prepared

Why Nancy Larson Science?

Posted by Kayla of The Arrowood Zoo 

Several months ago I had the awesome privilege of going to the NCHE Conference, which you have heard me talk about a lot! I had so much fun and learned a lot too. And I cannot wait for next year.

While there I met Madon Dailey, who is the homeschool manager for Nancy Larson Science. She wanted to meet all of the NCHE 2014 Bloggers while she was at the convention, so I ran by her booth. While speaking with her about our current science and looking at what Nancy Larson Science had to offer for my homeschool, we decided that it would be a great idea for me to review a science kit for the entire year with Zachary and Lexi. Zachary is 9 and Lexi is 11. Science 2 is for ages 7–9 but can be adapted for younger or older without much effort. Madon helped me decide to use Science 2 with both of them, and she  helped me with several other questions that I came up with too!

There are several reasons I decided this would be an awesome fit for my family:

1 – The lessons are already prepared {jumping for joy}. Science scares me, you see I was the one that got a D in science in 5th grade. Yes 5th grade. I had never gotten a D and never did again.  I took pride in my work but science just came very hard to me in a text book.

I can’t tell you how many times trying to find something has hurt our school day on learning. You know the time when you are ready but you forgot that “one” piece of whatever and it totally ruins your lesson. With Nancy Larson Science you simply open the box and you may begin. There is no prep work. Everything is supplied which is a huge plus. No extra shopping because you need a new book for that lesson or you need a rock set for that unit, she has it all covered.

Next time: 2 – The lessons are scripted.
