This is excellent for teaching the scientific method from a Biblical Worldview. My 12 year old son has been able to work independently and the labs reinforce the material covered in a fun educational way. Excellent material for a great price!
Overall, this is a good science program - I highly recommend getting the student notebook - it contains all the lab report write ups, a daily schedule (so you know how to plan out all the sections/modules for the year).
I did not buy the student notebook initially, and then bought it 2 weeks later - it is really a must for making this science curriculum work well.
It's a little hard I would say for anyone under about 6th grade! It came up in material for 2nd grade, and while I like my child to be challenged, this is a bit much! The material is good, but really difficult, and not at all what I was expecting.
This is very challenging material but written in a way that makes it interesting. It has an easy to follow style and is organized very well. It is visually a little dull, but this is made up for in the Student Journal which I highly recommend to accompany it. It has a strong foundation in the scientific method and I know it will prepare my child well for future science courses. I really like the experiments so far and how they make use of easy to find supplies.
