Category Description for Biology for the Grammar Stage (Gr. 1-2):

Although we have added several new science programs over the past two years, Elemental Science offers some very unique features and will likely appeal to both Classical and Charlotte Mason home educators. The main difference? The program basically provides a framework of study and lesson plans while your science "text" and experiments are found in a selection of excellent, high-interest resources including DK, Usborne, and Kingfisher


Category Description for Elemental Science:

If you prefer your science "outside the textbook" then you'll want to look at Elemental Science. Designed as a Classical science program "loosely based on the ideas for classical science education that are laid out in The Well-Trained Mind," this one may also appeal to Charlotte Mason home educators. The program itself provides a framework of science study while your science "text" and experiments are found in a selection of quality resource books including DK, Usborne, Kingfisher and Janice VanCleave

Great Content
The book gives excellent physiological content and makes mysteries of the body simple. The highlight way the book highlights location and function in a comic biok style in very affective on keeping the reader engaged. However, the format in some areas is a bit confusing, too jumbled in sections. Also, progenesis step should be added to the content. Outside of these points, it's a great book.

I bought the book to review before giving as gifts to kids. I'm a bit hesitant because there are very small amount of photos using kids of color, expect in relation to muscular mechanics. That does not send a message of inclusion to the kids I want to receive this book.
