  1. I can't get to the site anymore. Anyone else?? I tried registering as a user but I need some sort of course code to access the site now.
  2. Earth Science: http://flashmedia.glynn.k12.ga.us/webpages/jmcclendon/files/esn_student%20ebook.pdf Physical Science: http://www.spokaneschools.org/cms/lib/wa01000970/centricity/domain/1076/psn_ebook_ver3.pdf The above links are for full versions and not the focus versions (used in CA). CPO Tag Search: http://forums.welltrainedmind.com/tags/forums/cpo/
  3. Edited: Never mind. Between the Teaching Illustrations and Google, I think I have it figured out. ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- First, thank you to those who posted earlier about CPO Earth Science. It looks great! I am really confused about the Investigations, though. I have been working to acquire all of the supplies and make substitutions as needed. Where do you find the radar image plates, side-view depth diagrams, bathymetric map, Mineral ID Chart, tree cross section, etc. that
  4. I would like to look at the CPO Physical Science Textbook before I buy it. It doesn't seem to be at any of the websites I've always gone to before. Does anyone have a current link? Looking at the online FULL text is what made me decide to use Earth (also cheaper on Amazon) and decide against Life Science.
  5. Has anyone used this company or package: http://www.qualitysciencelabs.com/life-science-labs/ I need Life Science for a fifth grader who is beyond Janice VanCleave's Biology book (she's done more than 1/2 of them on her own time) and reads the Kingfisher Science Encyclopedia for fun. I thought of using the lab manual as the spine and lining up CPO Life Science and/or CK12 readings to go with it. Our intention is to do Kolbe's Earth for 6th and Physical/ Chem for 7th. She'll be in Algebra by 7th (probably Jacobs from Kolbe). This year she's doing Galore Park Junior 3 and lots of additio
  6. I thought I'd share this in case anyone else is interested... First, I discovered yesterday that the California (Focus on...) student textbooks for CPO Earth Science, Life Science and Physical Science can all be found here as free .PDF downloads. Second, if anyone else plans to use the CA version of CPO Life Science, I've matched up the chapters and assignments with all of the free materials found on CPO's regular life science website. I've also included supplemental labs and other extras: Part One, Part Two. Lastly, I've put together a supply list for the course.
  7. I'm a long time lurker but wanted to share my research to do this in a more affordable way - thanks for letting me share! I've read a few times on the boards this specific book, CPO Middle School Physical Sci - NOT Focus On..., had expensive experiments (investigations) and equipment. I loved the look of the program and didn't want to drop this yet :tongue_smilie: My dd wants to do physical science next year so I did a little digging to see if I could substitute any investigation too $$. I have read every CPO science posts/blogs several times over and love all the hints given to substitute
  8. Thanks to Some of You Who Shall Remain Unnamed (you know who you are!), I've stumbled across CPO Science. I want it. Pronto. I've read a plethora of threads on the subject and still require the For Dummies explanation as to what I need & how to implement it. I do want hard copies of the books, that much I know. But whether I want the "regular" or CA-standards version? I dunno. Not sure it really matters? Beyond the practical details, though, I have to consider whether or not I'll put the program to good use. Help me think through this, if you would. My oldest two guys used Apo
  9. And have how you did written down (or blogged)? I started working my way through it: Marble launcher over $100, okay will do nerf guns at measured angles (we did this last summer, actually). Genetic jumble game also pricey: Made REEBOPS from a website. Can get brine shrimp if I can figure out how big their microscoop and salt scoops are. Etc. Anyone done this before so I can cut some time off my planning? Thanks.
  10. I've successfuly used household equipment to adapt two of the CPO Earth Science labs----Investigation 2B (Modeling a River) and 3A (Convection in Earth's Atmosphere). So far, so awesome for us geeky science types :D Here is a picture-heavy (understatement, sorry to those on slow connections) blog post showing our very own stream table made from a paint tray liner. I have to finish uploading the pictures from yesterday, then I'll write up a blog post about our "GeoBox" made from a really old Rubbermaid clear box and two plastic cups :001_smile:
  11. Has anyone made a schedule for the Earth Science CPO book?? Can anyone shoot me a link for someone that has? Thank you!
  12. Has anybody done CPO Physical Science? We are working on CPO Earth Science right now (love it!) and will do CPO Life Science next (already have the books in hand - just need to plan), but the Physical Science is so expensive for the student & teacher books (and I like to have books in hand, not just on the computer.) I was trying to figure out why they are so expensive compared to Earth & Life, and wondering if we should take another direction for that subject. Hmmmm...I'd love input. Thanks, Angela
  13. Help! I is a sad squirrel. My son told me that he just can't stand CPO Earth and Space. This is a kid who is very agreeable and loves science. He rarely complains. We picked it out together and it seemed like it was a great choice, but he is not happy. I think he likes the hands on parts, but the experiments can run to the tedious. There is lots of doing something a bunch of times and taking averages. And often the 'something' just isn't that interesting. And there is a lot of reading and writing. I have been having him read the chapters and then answering the questions at the end
  14. Have you used this? What edition did you use? I'm looking into this now for my son. I'm trying to save money and it looks like I can get the 2002 edition with a teacher's guide inexpensively. I can see samples of the 3rd edition online. Does anyone here have the 2002 edition? Is it full-color like the current edition here? Do the 2002 teacher's manuals have recommended literary suggestions like the 3rd edition? Thanks!
  15. What science programs are there for logic stage? We tried Science Explorer this year and it bombed majorly.
  16. Just wondering if anyone else is finding errors. We've completed 2 chapters and found 3 errors. Do you think this is acceptable or am I being overcritical? Jennifer
  17. I wanted to take a look at CPO's Foundations of Physical Science, but for the life of me, not only do I not see any samples, I can't seem to find how I could buy just one set. I've noticed lots of posts of people using it. How?:confused:
  18. We're studying relative time in CPO Earth Science now. Since dd remembers well our trip to the Grand Canyon in 2006, I pulled out all the books and resources I brought home with us. I decided to check the Grand Canyon section on nps.gov for additional information and while there, I stumbled across the remnants of an Electronic Field Trip from 2004. http://www.bsu.edu/eft/canyon/p/students/canyon.htm The EFT videos are no longer available but the additional information is fabulous! Check it out-----text, very short videos and some interactive games for the geology of the canyon, the
  19. I'm not really sure what it is, but we are NOT loving this. I'm using it with a 4th & 5th grader that just begged to study the human body this year and after three weeks they are begging me to find something better. In the past we have done outside classes that are very hands-on. Last semester we did the science of bridges with K'nex. I really don't have the desire to spend my time tweaking and making it more fun & less textbookish. I've always heard good things about Jeannie Fulbright's books. Are they all like this? We just can't seem to get into it. Now what am I go
  20. Hi all! I am in love with my CPO earth science books! Thanks to all of you who helped me through my scheduling freak-out. I am now gathering /preparing for the labs. I have selected the ones that sound like "don't miss" labs and have a few questions: Did you make a geo box? I am thinking about creating one from a clear plasitc shoe box but wanted some "been there done that" advice. I saw something like one at Home Science Tools and thought I bought it (a kit where you add water to a landform in the box to make a map). My box arrived yesterday and apparently I did not put it in the cart
  21. I love science. I'm not afraid to teach science. I grew up with a PhD Chemist for a dad - I did a lot of science LOL. I have science loving kids. Why do I feel like I can never find anything I like for science? I've seen just about everything out there. I don't like anything. I've thought a few things we've used are ok - especially compared to stuff I haven't liked. But I haven't ever just loved anything. I sit here thinking about next year for my rising 6th and 2nd graders - and I just can't get excited about anything for what should be a completely terrific subject. I just had to vent.
  22. If anyone is looking for a secular textbook-based middle school science program, I highly recommend CPO Science. It's completely secular, the company that publishes it is owned by a physicist from MIT. I have all three sets (Life Science, Physical Science, Earth Science) and I've been really impressed with them. I also bought several standard middle school & high school science texts (Pearson, Prentice Hall, Holt, etc.), and the thing that drives me nuts about them is they're so busy and distracting, with 47 colors and sidebars and bulleted lists and every fourth word highlighted, that it'
