I am trying to put out some feelers to see what resources exist for a science-crazy-middle-school-boy. We are a Christian family but typically use secular resources. My son is sort of obsessed with zoology and asked to study it next year. However, I think he might benefit from an actual biology class. He has some gaps that I would like to cover.
Looking around at resources, I stumbled across the Miller-Levine books. I am specifically looking at the ipad version paired with the Home Scientist kit
Would I be crazy to use these as a spine for a 6th grader? (If so, can someone offer a decent alternative?)
What exactly is the difference between the dragonfly and macaw books?
What resources exist for these books? (Does anyone publish lesson plans/tests/study guides?)
