Not for 5th grade
I love this curriculum. There is lots of hands-on learning as well as some text reading. The layout works well. For all of that I give this five stars. However, I gave it 4 stars because of the level of difficulty. I started using this with my 5th graders this year who work at to above grade level. This curriculum is just too tough for a 5th grader. My boys were understanding a lot of the content fairly well (definitely not all), but it was too much to retain. In talking to others, they use this upper middle school to high school. I would agree that it is more appropriate for at least 7th grade.

love the information covered
Although we have not used this text yet (due for upcoming homeschool year), I love the layout and information provided in this text. It is easy to read. Wish it had more pictures to make the pages come alive.

<p>I feel compelled to write a review of this textbook On page 446 a text box reads [capitalization is original to the text] "It is a FACT that evolution occurs It is a FACT that the process of evolution is how all species that have ever lived came to be There are THEORIES about how the process of evolution works"</p><p>While I do not subscribe to a young Earth philosophy I find these statements to be contrary to science itself The author fails to provide any documentation that "evolution is how all species that have ever lived came to be" Since the author presents it as fact what or who is the first living thing and from where did that come? I have never seen a scientific study that states common ancestry as a fact Potential buyers beware</p>

<p>We love using Pandia Curriculum! The Bio Level 2 is very engaging and rich with information The student text is a lab manual workbook text & test bank all in one consumable spiral book The Teacher's Guide is a separate text The Pandia Press website has a "try before you buy" option so you know what you're getting into before you spend This curriculum is great regardless of your science background We have used all of the Pandia Press science books from level one to Bio level 2 and have only one complaint-I wish that their science series was complete because we will have to search for another "fact based" science curriculum after Bio 2 this year Finding science curriculum that is fact based and not "dumbed down" is very difficult</p>

<p>I will admit I have not used the curriculum yet but I have liked what I have seen so far looking through the textbook I did want to give a warning I wrongly assumed it was a "curriculum" that came with the teacher's guide and student pages for my $105 Instead it is just the textbook If you do not want your child writing in the textbook you need to either copy the worksheets out of the text or buy the extra student pages The teacher's guide is also a separate purchase which makes the cost of this curriculum that much more I really believe we will enjoy using this book but I would have liked everything to have been included as a package to make the entire cost more clear </p>

I will be homeschooling my 6th grade son next year and wanted a solid beginning biology text with a laboratory component that incorporates experiments to better engage him and enrich his educational experience.

I used this book to teach a home school biology class for my daughters and four of their home school pals. Now I am purchasing another copy to send to friends for their home school daughter.

I wanted a good rigorous science curriculum, that was not aligned to the new Science standards found in Common Core and Essa

High Level. Daughter did well. Definitely prepares for high School.

We've used one of the History Odyssey courses and found it to be well-organized with many fun activities to do. The science series looks to be of similar quality.

I used "try before you buy" on the publisher's website and got a good feel for the book. It was long enough that I felt like I knew what we were getting into. This looks like a good science-based program.

Can this be use for 9th grade?
Julia E on Aug 16, 2017
BEST ANSWER: I used it with my 8th grade daughter. It really depends on your student. It's not heavy reading by any means, but I felt it covered the topics really well. Some of the lessons had her fill in diagrams as she read and I think that really helped her to understand the topics better than many high school level curriculum. I even had my other 10th grader join us on some of the lessons because I thought it did a better job of explaining topics than her biology curriculum! It also includes links to watch additional videos, some of which are definitely high school level. It does include dissecting a frog and LOTS of microscope work which should cover the lab requirements for high school credit. By the way, some of the video links included in the book may be out of date, but I emailed the company and they sent me the up to date links.
What products does this bundle include?
A shopper on Mar 30, 2016
BEST ANSWER: THIS IS NOT "THE BUNDLE." I ordered this product, thinking it was the student text & teacher manual because of the previous answer to this question, however the teacher manual is not included. Still worth it, imo, but you will have to purchase the teacher manual separately.
