Sound good? Wait, there's more! We've created an essential teacher's guide which consists of general teaching resources, detailed teaching notes, complete answer keys, alternate tests, and a science equipment list. Additional resources, activities, and homeschooling experiments are included, which are designed to encourage individualization of the program according to student interest and academic ability. Student worktexts, designed to foster academic independence and critical thinking, include daily instruction, review questions, and experiments.
LIFEPAC worktexts provide a complete, year-long science curriculum for each grade. From a Christian publisher, the approach is systematic mastery learning. It's very easy to teach from, with no need to write out lesson plans or prepare materials. You will have to gather equipment and materials for science experiments, however. Each grade contains 10 small consumable worktexts which the students progress through at their own pace. Each unit includes vocabulary, text, and comprehension questions to assure students retain the material. The science series is more activity-oriented than AOP's other subject LIFEPACs, with plenty of experiments to help illustrate science concepts. Grades 1-10 worktexts contain colorful illustrations; grades 11-12 are only available in black and white. Complete Boxed Sets also include a Teacher's Guide with teaching tips and answer keys. Sets of LIFEPACS only (no Teacher's Guides) are also available at each level for additional students.
