  1. Hi, In planning science for our son's junior year, I am considering an alternative to the standard Biology course most students take. Our son has already taken Physics and Chemistry (at our local college). While he is STEM minded, there is no strong interest in general biology itself. I am curious if anyone else has selected a different Life Science besides standard high school Biology for their student? Possibly Anatomy, Physiology, Marine Biology, etc... Just as an aside, my undergraduate degree is in Life Science and I never took biology in high school either. Anatomy and Physiology were required courses for the university program I was accepted into. So I took those courses at a community college. I never felt the need for standard biology in and of itself. Thanks,
  2. Hello, I would like to hear from anyone who has used Science Shepherd Life Science. Although the author holds to a YEC perspective I'm wondering what it might be like for someone from an OEC point of view. My understanding is that in SS Life Science there is only 'one' chapter covering this topic. So theoretically I could skip it. But I would like to address creation/evolution as it does apply to this area of science. Lastly if you used it please indicate if you used the first or second edition. According to the author, Scott Hardin, he has completely rewritten this section of his book. I wrote him after reading a review which concerned me here: http://www.reasons.org/articles/review-science-shepherd. In response he provided a rather detailed answer regarding his revised text in which he stated he attempted to address some of the issues brought forth in the review.
  3. The iPad app "My Incredible Body" is free today. It's a kid's app to learn about the human body. Seems to be a long download time, but I'm almost done downloading it.
  4. 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 additional labs (TOPS, Van Cleave books, etc) and readings. Thanks!
  5. We finished the third and final book in the Apologia Young Explorers animals series and we're reviewing this week before we start the Anatomy and Physiology book next week. I asked my fifth grader to write a research paper on one of the animals we covered...and she mentioned that we never studied penguins (!), that they weren't in any of the Apologia books. That got me wondering what other animals weren't included in the ark...er, series ;)
  6. 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!
  7. 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.
  8. I really like the looks of Mr. Q, but I swear it's given me the hugest headache over the past 2 months. Is anyone else having trouble printing it out? I don't have an i-anything (or kindle or nook or whatever), I like books. So I first started trying to find a place I could send the pdf file to and have them print it out. To save on costs, I removed the worksheets, had it set to 2 pages per sheet, plus double-sided. I also resized the files to 8.5x11. The cheapest place I found was Lulu, but their printer kept having problems. I then sent the file over to my university's printing service, but their printer couldn't read the font. Then, I bought a comb binding machine and resolved to do it myself, but neither my printer nor my office printer will print the student book correctly. Starting on the 5th page or so, the font starts messing up - skipping letters and whole words here and there. I'm using the freebie LS book if that matters. I wanted to take advantage of the sale that just passed, so I started working on this in December in order to take LS on a test run. However, given all of the problems we've been having, I skipped the sale and now wonder if Mr. Q is just not in the stars for us. We're currently using GP Junior Science and add in RS4K and tooooons of library books and videos, but the girls just love the look of Mr. Q. Help me! Has anyone found a workaround to this? Any advice would be appreciated. Thanks :)
  9. I haven't gotten ours yet. I am curious to see if anyone has a supply list or a list of supplements for Oak Meadow Grade 6 Life Science.
  10. I think we have settled on using BJU Science 7 with my 7th grader for next year. But, I would love to hear from others who have used it. We have never used a textbook for much of anything around here and I'm wondering if this is a difficult course to do at home. My son is advanced in his knowledge of Science, especially Biology, but he isn't strong on writing, though we are always working on that. I guess he's probably "average" in that regard but definately advanced in his understanding of Science concepts. He LOVES Biology and thinks he may want to pursue a Science degree in college. Is this a course that is "doable" at home? Is it a 5 day a week course? I thought I'd get a kit through Home Science Tools that has most of the supplies and also the course DVD's. Are there any samples of the DVDs anywhere? Thanks for any info.!!
  11. I know about the eScience kits, but is there anything else out there? I'd like something that has essentially everything in the box and has maybe 15 activities that would go with a standard middle school life science course. It must be secular and not ridiculously expensive. Any ideas?
  12. Has anyone done the mollusk unit in R.E.A.L. Life Science? I can't find any garden snails. I'm thinking of just getting a fresh water snail from Petsmart. Feedback ? :bigear: I'm not sure what their lifespan is though and what would be the best thing to do with it later. (We don't have a permanent aquarium).
  13. We are just starting our classical journey with our kids and will be doing biology/life science with our 2nd grader this year for science. I've been looking over what is suggested for science in TWTM and think that we probably need a more structured approach to science...especially for this Type A Momma! :D So what science curriculum are you using or have used with your lower grammar kids? What do you like or not like about what you've used? Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated! Mandi
  14. http://www.eequalsmcq.com/classicsciinfo.htm I'm thinking of giving it a test run with my younger kids.
