Product Description:

This set from Alpha Omega includes individual Lifepac workbooks from the Science series. Different grade levels and units that cover the topics needed for an Astronomy course were individually selected to assemble this set. The five science Lifepacs included are: Grade 6, Unit 8; Grade 6, Unit 9; Grade 7, Unit 3; Grade 7, Unit 4; and Grade 9, Unit 7. The Lifepacs are the same ones included in the grade-level sets, but they are compiled in this set to focus on Astronomy. A teacher’s guide is included with the five workbooks, which includes an answer key for each Lifepac, as well as an alternative test. Completion of this course is equivalent to a half credit in Astronomy.

Category Description for LIFEPAC Select for Science:

Category Description for LIFEPAC Science:

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 worktexts which the students progress through at their own pace. Each unit studied 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. The Complete boxed sets also include a Teacher's Guide with teaching tips and answer keys.

Alpha Omega is in the process of updating the covers on the LIFEPACs. It is only a cosmetic change; the LIFEPAC content has not been modified. While they are transitioning to the new covers, please be aware that you may receive a mix of LIFEPACS with old and new covers in a set.

I was pleased with previous LIFEPAC elective sets. The makers do a great job piecing together an interesting and cohesive course. And my son loves all things LIFEPAC.

I chose the lifepacs because my daughter did not finish her algebra and is not ready for Chemistry. I needed an alternative that did not require much planning or other materials and was still a high school curriculum

We needed a "complete" alternative high school science elective.

Looking for a survey-type science program for a twelfth grader, nothing too heavy but still a good review on one level and informative on another.

Has anyone used this liked or unliked? Here we are in high school and really didn't spend any emphasis on astronomy would this be enough for high school?

BEST ANSWER: This course could be used for a one-half credit in high school science.
