  1. There were a LOT of us that put on our "What are you using this year" (7th & 5th) threads that we would use Ellen McHenry's Mapping the World With Art. For those of you who are using it (personally or in a co-op), how is it going? Are you doing the history readings? The extra crafts & reviews? How often are you getting to it? Do you find your kids have internalized the major features of the maps you've done so far? I'm getting to it about once per week, but I'm thinking of dropping it for now. It seems like it is an add-on that isn't really adding value the way we're doing it. I really like it, so I want to do it again. However, when we restart it, I'll do it as a full class - several times per week, with the extra activities, and add in constant review of the maps we've already done. Right now, we all do a map & then forget it. (I was making myself redraw previous week's maps after doing the current week's map, but fell out of practice about five weeks in.) When we did the review map (week 8??), I did well with some areas & poorly in others. My other two kids had to use previous week's maps and even then struggled. It isn't carrying over to their map work in history, so I think I'm going to drop it until I can fit it in as a full time class (perhaps for one semester). I'm interested to see how it is going in other households!
  2. We just watched an awesome amazon streaming video called Brain Games. Super entertaining, funny and eye-popping stuff. I think any kid from 3rd or 4th up would like it! And t goes really well with our The Brain study.
  3. Can some one help me figure out what Ellen McHenry's The Elements covers? I know it covers elements and the periodic table, but does it also cover stuff like chemical bonding, atomic architecture, etc.? Is there any math in it? What age/grade did you use it? Thanks!
  4. I'm just learning about Ellen McHenry's materials thanks to these forums. I'm thinking about doing Elements with my three youngest, ages 8,9 and 11. Any recommendations on what to purchase? A hard copy with the cd? just the digital? TIA,
  5. Is anybody else planning their 3rd grade chemistry? So far I'm enchanted by Ellen McHenry's Elements (12 weeks, 8yo and up) perhaps to follow with her Brain (9 weeks, 8yo and up) and, if Button is up to it, Carbon Chemistry (no time listed, for 9yo and up). I figure that be a year's worth of work. I'm tempted to use REAL Science Chemistry as a spine, but perhaps that would be a pointless addition. I thought I'd supplement with Basher's Periodic Table and Basher's Chemistry Cartoon Guide to Chemistry (for older children -- will have to see how this goes) Maybe biographies for Marie Curie George Washington Carver Antoni Van Leeuwenhoek Louis Pasteur Lord Kelvin (? -- the distinction btw. physics and chemists blurs/doesn't apply this early, not sure when we'll do Kelvin) Antoine Lavoisier Josiah Wedgwood -- not an academic chemist, but functionally a master materials scientist; would love to find a good bio for him Montessori-style cards were made by this blogger (links to her instructions) using this Elements site -- basic subatomic structure of each element. I haven't figured out whether or not I want to to this myself. we ourselves don't work very well from DK-style books, so none are listed ... but what are y'all doing? or, if you've come through Grammar chemistry already, what have you liked? ETA resources suggested by others, down-thread: Elemental Science curriculum GEMS Chemical Reactions unit Mr. Q's Chemistry Noeo Chemistry II Royal Fireworks' Press Dr. Dave's Teaching Manuals: Chemistry (text + CD with visuals; you can download a sample) Guest Hollow's chemistry (this is a free scheduling of resources for a year of chemistry: do visit for the resource list at least, incl. DVDs) Homeschool Share's free chemistry unit (lapbooking/notebooking) ACS middle school chemistry-- this is free, but FWIW boardies much prefer McHenry's Elements. It is suggested to try ACS, then Elements since ACS is simpler; the ACS includes videos of dramatic demonstrations you prob. won't be doing at home :) ACS's Wonderscience activity book (on Amazon, used, much more cheaply) -- boardies love this resource. "Chemically Active: Experiments You Can Do At Home" book by Cobb "Exploring the World of Chemistry: From Ancient Metals to High-Speed Supercomputers" by Tiner Memoria Press' guide to the Tiner book above (they sell the text, too) -- scroll down a bit. "The Disappearing Spoon": this is not a book written for children; good resource for the parent or for a child old enough to enjoy. A living book. Theodore Gray's "The Elements" " "Elements Vault": Treasures of the Periodic Table w/ Removable Documents and Real Element Samples Incl. Gold " Photographic Card Deck of the Elements " The Elements Puzzle (1000 pieces) periodictable.com (from Gray & co, just like the Elements book but with other stuff too) periodicvideos.com from the University of Nottingham: videos for all elements, links to the authors' writing in the peer-reviewed journals Science and Nature Chemistry, &c.
  6. Are you printing the entire thing out? This website has great prices on black and white printing -- less than $20 for the entire thing. But, some of the photos are in color. I was thinking of having the whole thing printed in B&W and then printing off the activity sheets from my own printer. What is/has everyone else doing/done? Thanks!
  7. Has anyone with a science background who has used these products give me an idea on the scientific soundness of them? I really like what I see, but what makes me hesitant for middle school science curriculum is her background.
  8. i have been thinking about using two or three Ellen Mchenry's science programs (elements, the brain, botany cells). I've looked through her samples, and I like what I see, but I haven't seen much discussion of anything except mapping the world with art. I'd love to hear from people who have used the elements or the brain programs (the others are being written this summer.) We will be using a history of science program with sotw mixed in as our main science/history program, but I think an in-depth study or two or three would be much appreciated by the kids. I'm also looking around for a zoology program that be challenging for a very bright fourth grade naturalist who has a good foundation.
  9. I am about to lose my mind over what to use for Chemistry for my dd for 7th grade. My criteria for the program is that I don't want anything too heavy duty-ish. She is going to be having a fairly hefty load next year with history, literature and writing, so I don't want to burn her out with a rigorous science program. But I don't want it to be baby-ish either. I have thought out all of my options and have narrowed it down to 2choices: Elements by McHenry (if I do this then I will also do Carbon Chemistry,) or Middle School Chemistry by the American Chemical Society. My concern is that Elements will be too baby-ish for her. In the RR catalogue they cite it for ages 9 to 13, but the description (songs, games) looks like it may be too young for her. For those that have used Elements, am I right in my thinking? Can someone help me straighten my thinking over which curriculum would be better for a light year of science for a 12 yr. old? Thanks
  10. http://www.ellenjmchenry.com/id151.html Who is using it? What do you think? What ages would this work for? What all did you purchase? Thanks!
  11. I'm looking at these two programs. I hear rave reviews about McHenry's program, but it's only a semester worth of material, correct? Would it work well with RSO Chemistry (not worked through at the same time, but one after the other) or would the material be redundant? I'm a bit confused about what to do here, can ya tell? :tongue_smilie:
  12. Are these materials Christian or secular? Is her English roots program considered English or history? If you have used here programs, what do you think? How is retention with her materials? I am very intrigued and would like to learn more.:)
  13. Anyone have a favorite chemistry program they could recommend for my grade 7 dd? She does not like science at all except biology(she is a nature and animal lover). Thanks
  14. Has anyone used this with a 5th grader? I am planning on using The Elements first, then thought I would follow up with the Carbon Chemistry. After looking at the samples, I'm thinking it might be too much for my dd. Of course, we won't really be getting to it for another 9 months or so. Any thoughts?
  15. Are Elements Intro to Chemistry Curriculum and The Elements: Ingredients of the Universe the same thing? They're both by Ellen McHenry. Are they two different curriculums, maybe for different ages or something? Or did she just change the name of the course?
  16. Has anyone used this Chemistry curriculum, "The Elements: Ingredients of the Universe" by Ellen McHenry? The RR review of it is here; it sounds absolutely fantastic & I'd love to squeeze it into our schedule but am wondering how long it takes to complete all the lessons. If you've used it, what was your opinion of it and how long did it take to work through the book?
  17. Hi, has anyone used these 2 books by Ellen Mchenry:The Brain and Carbon Chemistry . I would like some feedback on them. thanks in advance.
