i cant say enough good things about this series!! my children love it and the information is remembered because of all the activities. we completed it in 4 months of homeschool. however, it can be used for a whole year.... my kids kust begged to do more!
I love this curriculum. We are only in about 3 lessons but it keeps the kids interested. Astronomy is amazing as it is but this explains it in a way that they can understand and find interesting. The activities are not difficult (at least this far). We purchased the journals with it which has been helpful for my nine and 6 year old:) I will definitely be continuing this apologia series.
This book is a great starting point for children starting their journey in astronomy. However, we found some of the information was outdated and occasionally incorrect. We completed our studies and look forward to the publisher and author creating an updated edition. You can search online for errors in this text to update the information you provide to your students while teaching. It simply takes a little extra time.
This text is wording is friendly for teaching multiple children of different age groups during the same lesson.
I highly recommend purchasing the notebooking journals with this product.
My son and I love this book. We are using it as a supplement to science for homeschooling but also used it to make a science project on the solar system. There's a lot of info, but it's easy to read and absorb. It's great how the author proves creation with facts about the solar system.
My two daughters, ages 10 and 8 love this curriculum. I recommend the note booking journal and jr. note booking journal. The activities are very age appropriate and fun! I have 4 children, 3 at different homeschooling grades, and this works well for our family!
