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 However, we found some of the information was outdated and occasionally incorrect.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!
Purchased this to study with my two children, and we all love it! The text is presented in a way that is interesting, easy to understand, yet challenging too. I love that my children are learning about science from a Christian perspective, and they can see how an awesome Creator designed it! The accompanying journal notebook is a great way for children to record what they learned and enjoyed most; you can choose how many activities you want to use.
