I imagine this is lovely for unit study veterans but it is so not not not a good introduction to the world of unit studies I'm so confused Had I not done a much simpler unit study before now this would have put me off them forever The lesson plans have you flipping all over the book with recommended reading in one place lab sheets in another lesson elements in yet another Even the reproducible items are scattered in the book rather than in one place for easy tear-out The "flashcards" are beautifully drawn but they're not reproducible Worse they're done in such a way that you can't even cut them out of the book and paste them to index cards without losing half your information To answer the Rainbow Resource questionsQ Did your children learn what you thought they would?A I haven't even gotten that far yet and I'm not sure I will Q Did you find it easy to use?A See aboveQ Was the teacher's manual helpful and/or necessary?A It's not possible to do this study without it (Of course I find it difficult to do this study with it too)Q How much teacher preparation is necessary?A Enough that I wish I'd just put together my own lesson plans Q How successful were you in using it for multiple ages?A Haven't tried yetQ How does it work for various learning styles?A I don't know intuitively it leans heavily toward visual learners Q Is there any additional information that would have been helpful prior to purchasing?A It would have been nice to know the author had ABeka in mind when she wrote it It's not a necessary element but I gather it would make the study far easier to use We don't use ABeka so I probably would have skipped it and gone for another product had I known The suggested reading list would have been nice to have tooQ How does it compare with a similar product?A It reminds me of Kronos which I liked the concept of but didn't use either I guess I'm just not a unit study personQ Is the product a good valueA Not for my family

Needed a good comprehensive Botany course for homeschooling. This looks very extensive, but still interesting.
