Units and lessons follow a consistent format. Units begin with a short introduction that provides objectives, vocabulary, and materials needed; a coloring page, timeline entries and dates, and a unit "wrap-up" with multiple-choice assessment are also included.
Individual lessons include:
- A "Teaching Time" passage to be read aloud or independently (Scripture and defined vocabulary terms are in the margin)
- Five fill-in-the-blank review exercises
- A "Hands-On Time" activity that reinforces concepts from the lesson (materials needed list and step-by-step directions provided)
- A "Think about It" critical-thinking exercise based on the results from the Hands-on Time activity
Students will maintain a science notebook where they can keep track of daily reading sheets, "Checking it Out" lab forms, "Write About It!" composition assignments, and other work.
- "Getting Started" Basics
- The Lithosphere
- The Hydrosphere
- The Atmosphere
- Earth's Weather
- Beyond Earth

I don't find it too stressful and the experiments are truly easy to do and fun. I am glad to have found this curriculum and wish I found it sooner.

FroggymomBartlett, ILAge: 35-44Gender: female4 Stars Out Of 5Great Product for the PriceSeptember 15, 2012FroggymomBartlett, ILAge: 35-44Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 4Meets Expectations: 4We have just completed our first unit and are really enjoying this curriculum. Our pros are: It can be used with multilevel kids, short lessons but can be expanded, easy to find books at the library, great illustrations and maps to do hands on work with. Our cons are: there are pages to be copied in the back of the book for almost every lesson. They are a ton of vocabulary words to learn-you'll need to pick and choose. Overall, I am glad we made this purchase. We just made planet earth from Lesson 2. The recipe worked for the play dough and it came out great. A very fun experience!
christa5 Stars Out Of 5August 11, 2010christaI have never been so happy with a science curriculum. It is easily taught and the kids love it!! I highly recommend this to anyone wanting to implement science in their homeschool. I only wish now I had not waited so long to find it!
Nancy Whipple5 Stars Out Of 5January 30, 2010Nancy WhippleAwesome curriculum. It is a thorough covering of the material from a Christian perspective. Well written, comprehensive, and engaging.
Q: Can this be adapted for use with grade 1 students alongside Grade 4?
Although the curriculum is designed for older students, younger students would certainly benefit from learning alongside them. Just scale down your expectations for the younger student, taking into account their current abilities, to make the learning experience enjoyable and low key.
Q: Is this a book that could be shared between two students by photocopying a few pages? Or are there too many consumable pages to make that feasible?
The reproducible maps, forms, and illustrations in the book are designed to be easily used with more than one student. This does require the use of a secondary binder for activitity and answer sheets instead of writing directly in the text.
