  3. 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.
  4. I am looking for unit studies on any of the following appropriate for a 6th grader . Ideally I would love unit studies that also could be adapted for a 8 year old as well because I'd like to combine subjects as much as possible, but my 11 year old NEEDS to learn this stuff by year after next (will be attending a public 7th grade) while my 8 year old doesn't need to study this yet. FORCE, MOTION AND ENERGY LAYERS OF THE EARTH ROCK CYCLE (metamorphic, igneous, sedimentary rock) ECOSYSTEMS BIOLOGY (Cells, Taxonomic classifications, Organisms and their Environments) SPACE Would also love suggestions of good videos about these topics. Any suggestions appreciated!
  5. I finally finished our Earth Science and Astronomy Curriculum for next year! Here it is http://wateronthefloor.wordpress.com/earth-scienceastronomy/. It is based on WTM with some added extras:) Enjoy!
  6. We are following the WTM suggestions for 2nd grade science. While I really like the resource suggestions for astronomy, I'm not a fan of how simplistic the earth science encyclopedia is. I want to go more indepth on the rock cycle and identifying rocks and minerals. What suggestions does everyone have for this topic? Favorite library books, resources to help you identify rocks, fun experiments we might want to try? Thanks in advance for any suggestions!
  7. What are some living books you have used for earth and space science? Also, what science encyclopedia would you recommend for this age group? I am not interested in a boxed curriculum such Elemental Science, NOEO, etc. I want to put together my own but need some ideas and recommendations for living books and an encyclopedia to use as a spine. Edit to add...we are very conservative Christians. We will teach that some people believe in evolution but we teach young earth creationism. Thanks in advance.
  8. 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 are referenced in the Investigation instructions (the freebies that are available online)? I was hoping/assuming that they would be in the Teacher's Guide, but my copy arrived today, and I'm not seeing them. Do I have to buy the Investigations manual to get those pictures, or are those separate supplies that I have to buy or Google?
  9. After waiting forever for Classiquest to come out with their logic stage Earth Science & Astronomy, I'm leaning toward giving dd#2 Holt's Earth Science & using Kolbe's lesson plans. Here's my question -- if I get their lesson plans, do I need the CD-ROM? What does the CD-ROM give me? Any details? (I know about the online option that is cheaper, but am not interested in going in that direction.) Anyone use Kolbe's plans that can help shed some light?
  10. Saw this on their facebook, link to curriculum http://pbskids.org/d...paign=mktg_2013
  11. My older dd will be taking science in public school next year (she's been doing band and science this year and it's been a great experience). They do earth science for 8th grade (did lab science this year in 7th). I would like to do some earth science at home with younger sister who will be in 5th grade. I'm thinking maybe just a semester. I'd like some reading, some hands-on activities, and maybe some DVDs if they're good. Do you have any materials to recommend that have been a hit in your home school? Thanks.
  12. I already have a spine for our Astronomy next year, but I'm seeking a spine for Earth Science. I'd be using it with a 2nd/3rd grader, a 5th grader, & maybe a tag-a-long K'er. I'm not looking for a full-blown program because we'll only do science twice per week (two hours max) and Earth Science will only be half our year's study. The fifth grader is not even close to be working at the logic-stage level, so I'm looking at gearing it more toward 3rd/4th grade level. I designed my own earth science study four years ago, but am not really enthused about using the same spine (Planet Earth). I have a separate Weather hands-on book & experiment book. I have access to some living books. I'm just looking for an overall spine - preferably not an Usborne or other encyclopedia book. I've looked into A Child's Geography by Voskamp, but am unsure if that's what I'm looking for. (Seems very much in the same vein as Jeanne Fullbright's elementary Apologia books. Someone help me out here & tell me if that's a correct assumption? Narrative with lots of God-made-this-special mentions?) We like narrative, but something more secular would be nice. What other books should I look into?
  13. I've been looking for resources to go along with the Tarbuck Earth Science text that's been suggested here. I did a search for past threads and came up with some wonderful suggestions and resources (and a great poster who was willing to share her syllabus - thanks!). I also went a-Googlin' (like a-wassailin' but with less singing and imbibing... :D ) and found a few resources that I didn't see on any of the older threads so I'd thought I'd share. Forgive me if someone has already shared some or all of these and I just didn't see - I'm not sure if my forum search turned up ALL the old threads. *Note: These resources are for the 11th ed of the text. It seemed to be the one with the most free resources (and it's cheaper 'cause it's older). http://wps.prenhall.com/esm_tarbuck_escience_11/ This is a completely free text companion website from Pearson. No sign-up, no login needed - nothing! It has resources for each chapter including section quizzes and a chapter test. http://www.oakton.edu/user/4/billtong/eas100/index.html Syllabus for a community college using the text. http://mansfield.osu.edu/faculty/ocosta/ES203/syllabus.pdf Syllabus from Ohio State. http://capone.mtsu.edu/cdharris/GEOL100/ Great webpage with lots of resources but a pain to navigate. http://www2.tesc.edu/coursemanuals/dagang/eas-101-jan.pdf Syllabus from Thomas Edison State College.
  14. Sorry if this has been posted here already, but I wanted to share this link to the annual 50% off sale for Mr. Q. Science: http://www.eequalsmcq.com/HolidaySale2013.htm?utm_source=December+2012+LabNotes&utm_campaign=LabNotes+Nov+2012&utm_medium=email Of course, Life Science is free all the time, so you can preview it to your heart's content. But if you want to go on, 50% off certainly sweetens the deal. NOTE: all curriculum is in PDF form only, so you'll have to decide what to print yourself. I combed through the downloads, then used a free program called PDFill Tools to extract the pages I wanted to print into separate PDF documents, which I then printed (relatively) cheaply at Staples. Enjoy!
  15. We have been talking about infinity lately, and my dd said she likes to look in mirrors when there are 2 back to back so she can try to count the reflections she sees... which is, of course, infinite. But then, we started talking about other things that are infinite, and I got a bit muddled. :huh: - Is the universe infinite? (according to current scientific thinking) - are the number of grains of sand on the earth infinite? (I said no, that they are just very hard to count, but then I thought that if new grains of sand are being formed constantly, than maybe yes...) - are there any infinite THINGS that we can talk about as examples, because right now, she thinks infinity is pretty awesome... :-)
  16. Sounds strange, I know. We are breaking away from science curriculum and using a WTM science schedule for the first time this year (DK/Usborne/Janice Van Cleave books to cover Earth Science and Astronomy). Though I'm not quite sure where we stand on the Young Earth/ Old Earth debate, we are definitely Creationists and want to be awed by the works of His hands. We want to include a devotional approach to our science, and I found this great resource to go along with Astronomy: http://www.amazon.com/The-Heavens-Proclaim-His-Glory/dp/1404189580/ref=pd_sim_b_4 I'm looking for something similar to use for Earth science. I have a few ideas, but wondered if anyone knew of a book that would combine photographs of creation (particularly those relating to earth science- different biomes, weather, caves, volcanoes, rocks?) with scripture and short devotional thoughts. I know it's a long shot, but I thought perhaps someone has used something similar. Thanks for your input!
  17. Is there a significant difference between the college text and the high school text? I'm looking at this used on amazon, and am surprised at the difference in price. (College is cheaper.) I think the college text comes with a CD which reviewers state is very helpful. Have any of you used the CD and if so, did you find it helpful? The high school text has lots of teacher ancillaries, but I'm not sure how "necessary" they are. Any comments or feedback would be helpful. BTW this is for a rising 9th grader who's completed integrated physics & chem. Thanks, Jennifer
  18. I'm having a difficult time wading through everything that's out there and am hoping the Hive can help me. I need a list of any and all curriculum, books, textbooks, etc. that would be suitable for a grade 6 student for a year of Earth Science and Astronomy. I'm looking for fairly rigorous but not over her head.
  19. Is the teacher's manual essential? I already own the student edition and want to know if I need to shell out more money. Thanks
  20. Oh. How I hate Earth Science. Truly. I do. So, my dd14 is a 9th grader. She is not a sciencey person. With my 2 older boys, I sort of let them do earth science on their own using a college textbook and that was fine. But with her, I can't do that. I am using the public school's textbook which they lent to me. Generally, I'm not much of a textbook person, but in 7th grade we used a textbook for science and dd said that was her preferred way to do science, so we are doing that after using (and not liking) Noeo last year. So, I did okay with the Astronomy section of the textbook and the tectonic plates and volcanoes/earthquake stuff. But rocks. It's killing me. I can't think of anything more boring. Silicates. Carbonates. Tetrahedron structures. Ugh. Is there a more interesting way to do this? Right now I'm just reading it to her. I know neither of us are getting anything out of it. Maybe some words will sound familiar if she ever takes an interest in science. But I'm just going to blow through this. I'm planning to take a field trip to a cave and another trip to a coal mine. Any advice? I will not use any Christian material, especially for a subject like earth science. I'm open to off-beat ways of approaching it though. Or maybe just absolution for being a poor science teacher????
  21. Its new, and not on their website yet, but I am wondering if anybody has used this and if you could share your thoughts on this! Thanks
  22. I keep hearing "a few weeks" when I look up the threads... from, like, December. It's March. Does anyone know if the author of Classiquest Science is making any headway with Earth Science and Astronomy?
  23. Just kill me now! I'll be honest, we NEVER did Earth Science the first time around with my oldest. We did Astronomy first semester, and then I never did find something that caught our interest for Earth Science second semester, and then I had surgery so we never did it! Now, I need to do Earth Science with my youngest who will be in 4th grade next year and I have absolutely no idea where to start. I'm using AIG with my oldest for Earth Science this year, but I really don't think that it's a good curriculum for 4th grade. Is there nothing out there? Apologia has nothing, RS4K has nothing, NOEO doesn't even have earth science! I have Christian Kids Explore, but I don't like it. It's boring. I don't know, maybe I'm being stubborn, but there's got to be something better. Kwim? So, what have you got? What should we use? What has the Charlotte Mason feel with fun activities and experiments? What makes Earth Science fun? Thanks! Dorinda
  24. I have two textbooks on Geology from the library sitting in front of me. What level are these books? Earth Science by Tarbuck and Lutgens 9th edition Earth An Introduction to Physical Geology by Tarbuck and Lutgens 7th edition I have other books to check as well. Is there some website where I can type in a title to see the type of class where it is typically used? Thanks!!
  25. I found a big cache of USGS publications that might be useful for folks. As an example of the type of gems that might be hidden here: A Hiker's Guide to the Geology of Old Rag Mountain, Shenandoah National Park, Virginia
