  1. Thanks so much for letting me know how its going. I'm still very much interested, but I want to wait it out a bit...so I look forward to hearing more from you as you get further into the material...!!! (I would be getting the middle school level units, 11 total for 6th - 8th @ $45 each) so I'm also hoping to get more reviews by the end of this year of those who have tried those (or perhaps I'll get to see them a curriculum fair next summer......:001_smile:)
  2. Like many on this board....Science is a love/hate in our house. (The kids love to make a mess I hate to have to clean it up.......) We currently do a mix of Excursions/Outings, Mr. Q, Task Cards, Usborne Internet Linked Reference Material, Living Books & Lapbooking. Oh yeah and we throw in some Aha! Science, The Happy Scientist, Discovery Streaming, Khan Academy & Hippocampus.... Mixing it up for 6th/1st at the same time makes it lots of fun...:lol: (Can YOU tell I'm DYING for a BOX Curriculum here???) Anyway this looks promising http://www.hmheducation.com/sciencefusion/index.php You can buy it from Saxon Homeschool (Gotta scroll to bottom of this one, and the page is acting wonky..) http://www.mcdougallittell.com/store/ProductCatalogController?cmd=Browse&subcmd=LoadDetail&imprint=sh&ID=1007500000080012&frontOrBack=F&division=M01&sortProductsBy=SEQ_TITLE&sortEntriesBy=SEQ_NAME#order I'm not looking forward to dropping a fortune on Science but I will if the PROGRAM works......:tongue_smilie: (This is based online with a year use access and workbook, so unlike lots of other pricey curriculum there is no real resale ability) But I need feedback...who's using it, how's it going? what do you like/hate??? (Tried a search..not much came up, so...........) *EDIT* Willing to take other recommendations as well if anyone knows of/has a HG science curriculum (Don't hold back if you have one)....I prefer Secular and lite on the hands on *demonstration*....we do a indepth experiment for a couple weeks every year...otherwise I try to avoid the mess.....unless its a make your own gummy candy science kit..:)
