We've used Apologia in the past and found it a very well-written program. This book is as colorful as we've come to expect, and written to be easily handled by a wide range of students. We're ready to jump right in on our science for next year!
We LOVE this science curriculum. I am thankful that it not only shows the creation view of science but also gives what the common views are and then explains why christians believe what they do and takes caution to not be overly biased.It keeps science interesting, explains things really well, and prepares students for what's coming on the test.They also keep it reinforced with several experiments in each chapter. The experiment materials are mostly common things you can find around the house.
This book is very engaging. My daughter enjoys reading it on her own and then doing the experiments for her sister and I to watch. I especially enjoy watching her put different bits of information together to come to a conclusion before the book does it for her.
