My kids were pretty over the moon when I showed them online what was included with Nancy Larson’s Science 1 curriculum, that was nothing compared to how excited they were to get mail and explore everything inside! (They have also begged to make a video like the ones they love to watch on YouTube so you can watch us unpack the box as well a little later in this post, maybe they will start their own YouTube channel soon?) Everything we discovered in our Nancy Larson Science 1 box promises to be hands on, fun, manageable and above all educational! I wanted it for my 7 year old /Second Grader AND my 4 year old in Pre K as it seemed to cover a great age range, I didn’t want to have to teach every subject separate for each child so this seems perfect for us! You can see a sample of each level HERE.
It is scripted but with a flexibility that allows for your own leading, and everything you need is included to cover the 5 or 6 units (booklets) which each cover about 6 weeks of material averaging 2 days of science per week- a gentle but thorough introduction.
Included in the Nancy Larson Science 1 box is first a teacher manual and student material- a tear out workbook for each lesson.
Teaching tools, word cards, and science word labels are also a part of your materials. You will find an ENTIRE set of human body x rays, What Do Scientists Do Book, and Your Insides Book.
We also found a butterfly habitat (with a butterfly larvae coupon), a ladybug habitat (with a ladybug larvae coupon), rubber bugs, Insects and Spiders booklet, as well as insect learning cards (we are most excited for this part of the curriculum).
The kids were also intrigued to discover Tree cookies, pinecones, Trees to Paper book, The Seasons of Arnold’s Apple Tree, and Petersons’s Guide to trees.
Wanna see the kids explore the box for themselves? Check it out, but please excuse our mess. Our homeschool room is in progress and bear in mind this is their YouTube debut!
Thanks to Nancy Larson Science for providing the curriculum in exchange for my 100% honest opinion.
