Great introduction to general science. Reader-friendly. Challenging.

I was really looking forward to receiving this curriculum because our family has used all of the Apologia Elem Science books (by Jeannie Fulbright) and loved them After reading the reviews I was sure we would love this product as well However I was so disappointed when I received it If you are a homeschool family looking for an intelligent discussion on evolution vs creation this is not the text for you I found that the author took a very condescending tone throughout this topic going so far as to ridicule those who did not agree with his creationist viewpoint While the information and experiments presented were well-done I found the text so thoroughly suffused with Mr Wile's dogma that it was offensive Also Mr Wile takes an extreme pro-vaccination stance in his text again showing condescension to those who might disagree with this view I realize this review is different than most others for this product but I wish I would have known this before purchasing this text I was pleased that I was able to return the text to Rainbow Resources but sad that I will be looking beyond Apologia for my junior and high school children

I greatly enjoyed this program! My friend and I did it together and we loved reading the text and doing the experiments We liked the way the text was written (ie a "conversational tone") to us and not at us which seems to be the way a majority of science texts were written We took more than 36 weeks to complete the program and the only test we took was for module #1 and that was orally The course was excellent and I can still recall the information I garnered from it
My daughter got a late start on this text last year and was not able to finish but she is very excited about beginning again this year She has never cared much for science until we started Apologia The experiments are fun and easy therefore WE learn a lot It doesn't take much teacher prep other than ensuring you have necessary project materials and the materials are usually things you have around the house anyway Since this book is adaptive to each learning style- especially visual and tactical- it will be used for my other two children The money spent on it was well worth it!

I enjoy reading these aloud and the children also can easily read and take notes on the sections themselves.

This book entirely lacks references, is full of biased statements, and drove my middle schooler bananas. Does contain lots of basic decent information, but steer clear if you are not already a young Earth creationist.

what age or grade is this for. Would 5th or 6th grade be to young?
A shopper on Aug 9, 2017
BEST ANSWER: I used this curriculum with my 7th grader who is working a grade level behind in science and math. He enjoyed it and we are using the Physical Science book for 8th grade. So, depending on your child's abilities, 5th or 6th grade may be fine.
Can this be used as high school credit?
A shopper on Aug 7, 2017
BEST ANSWER: It would depend on what your state requires home school families to do for academics. I would also consider the age of your child and their capabilities. Generally speaking, it is for middle school.
