  1. Has anyone used "Rainbow Science" by Beginnings Publishing? I am interested in finding out what people liked or did not like about it. Thanks, in advance.
  2. In perusing the Rainbow Science site, I was glad to read positive feedback from SWB. Specifically, she's quoted as having said here, "This is probably the best homeschool science curriculum I have seen." Yet I can't find any mention of or recommendation for the program in the latest, third edition of TWTM. Our of curiosity, does anyone know when or where she offered that opinion? Thanks!:)
  3. Seems like I'd have 7th grade science down pat the third time around, but a recent curve ball has me undecided. My oldest two sons used Apologia General & Physical Science around this age. It's fairly dry, and we're not on the same page as Jay Wile in several respects. It did the job, but I'd hoped to use something different with my third son. We were away for a month earlier in the summer, and I planned to look into other options when we came home. I'm particularly interested in CPO Science, but I likely wouldn't do the experiments justice and I'm hesitant to go with a program oriented toward classroom use. I've also considered Rainbow Science. As with Apologia, I'm less than thrilled about the inclusion of any theological views in the curriculum, but I think (?) it's minimal. Luke (rising 7th grader) would appreciate the visual appeal and humor, and could take the lead on experiments. Rainbow does seem rather light, though. Any-hoo, my current reality is that my husband was recently diagnosed with Stage 3 melanoma. He recently had surgery and later this month will have another, more extensive surgery after which we'll discuss with the medical oncologist further treatment. At this point, I'm not able to immerse myself in investigating different curriculum and need to be realistic about what the months ahead may hold. In my situation, what would you do? Stick with Apologia, since I have the materials and know what to expect? Go with Rainbow, with all the experiment materials included and an approach my son could (I suspect) easily manage on his own? Buy CPO and see what I think of it? Or...? I just want to make a decision and be done with it, kwim? Thanks!
  4. Are these two programs fairly comparable to each other or is does one come out way ahead as being more thorough, or dare I say... rigorous? :001_unsure: Can anyone compare these two programs for me? Is one more enjoyable than the other? If you had to choose between the two, which would you go with? Would there be any reason to do both? :confused:
  5. Will the Rainbow curriculum thoroughly teach/reinforce the scientific method? I plan to use this with my 7th grade son and 8th grade daughter. We have doctors and teachers in our family who all hail from top tier grad schools. They do not live nearby where they can see what my two dc are learning and how they are flourishing. They cannot comprehend why we would want to continue to homeschool middle and high school. One of them is a middle school science teacher. I know she is going to ask this question and I want to be prepared (isnt that terrible?). Both of my children are very science/math minded like their father (and his lovely relatives). They know all the steps of the Scientific Method, but they do not yet know about things such as dependant variables. I'm hoping Rainbow will go into more detail on these things?
  6. My 6th grader will finish BJU Life Science this year (it's been a longgg year!). I'd like him to have a good generaly science experiance in 7th grade - fun, challenging (but not too much)- and that gets him ready for high school. I was thinking of Rainbow, but afraid it's not meaty enough. Any thoughts?
  7. If my son uses the first part of Rainbow Science in 8th grade, can he use the second part in 9th grade for a Biology credit? If not, is there something I can add, like the Biology 101 dvds, to make it credit worthy? If that won't work, can I try to squeeze two years of Rainbow into one? Or would it be better to do the first half of Rainbow for 8th grade and something else for Bio for 9th? Any other Biology suggestion? Thanks so much!:)
  8. What can you tell me about it - good or bad? Specifically, I'd like to know how independent it can be for a 7th grader, is the kit complete, is the text engaging, what is the slant regarding OE\YE - Creation\Evolution. Also, what would be the chances that a science minded 4th grader could tag along with this? Thanks!
  9. I need a program for 7th grade. It has to be Christian based and hands on. I don't want a textbook. Is there anything out there? I would also prefer it to come with a kit so I don't have to piece the experiments together. :001_smile:
  10. I am thinking of using Rainbow Science for 8th. Has anyone done the whole program in one year? If so, how did your dc find doing that, and do you have a schedule for it? Is it a fun curriculum? My son says that science is one of his favourite subjects. Thanks.
  11. What are my science options for 8th/7th grades? I'm looking for a good general science program to prepare my older two for high school science. Opinions?
  12. I so want to get this curriculum for next year.:drool: But $$$:001_huh: I know it's a 2 year program with all the supplies, but really. Is it worth the money? Any comparable alternative programs.
  13. Are there any other options for science for 7th grade beyond Apologia general sceicne? It is not a winner so far with us. eta--I guess I just figured we had to do general science for 7th grade. We want something christian based. Apologia general science just seems so dry. She is not a huge fan of science anyway. I really wanted to find something fun and interesting but also don't have a $200 to spend.
  14. I'm looking ahead a bit in the science dept. We are currently working on Level 1 of RealScience4Kids (biology, chemistry, physics, astronomy and, soon, geology). I'm interested in using Rainbow Science for 7th and 8th grade. Would this be too much overlap at all? Are they on the same level? My thought was that Rainbow was at a higher level than Level 1 RS4K. Has anyone used both or even compared both and could comment? Thanks,
  15. I could really use some advice in trying to figure out what to study. I decided to do my Biology last year (4th) instead of 5th so that I could combine my two oldest kids into the same topics (thought physics would not be interesting to my 1st grader). That means that we are covering physics in 5th grade. I'm trying to beef up the work and am combining three programs: Elemental Science is our spine, we then do all the work from Exploration Education following the topics in ES, and I also use the books from the NOEO program to have dd write narrations from. She's still finding it fairly easy but I'm combining 3 decent programs and so it's good enough for me. :) Thing is, my plan has been to use Rainbow Science for gr 7 and 8. Don't ask me why :glare: but I just now realized that Rainbow is physics/chem for 7th followed by bio in 8th. This means that after this full year of physics, my oldest is going to get it again the year after next. I will be doing astronomy and earth science next year but I don't know if dd will want to get back into physics so soon. Have I totally ruined things by doing physics in 5th? How do I make it so we can use Rainbow Science and not bore dd with so much physics? I really want to use the Rainbow Science program. My second choice would be Apologia General Science but I'm a lot less enthused by that. Any thoughts or suggestions on how I can work this?
  16. Thinking of going this route for 7th and 8th grade....this year my sixth grader is using Oak Meadow's Life Science.....Hoping The Rainbow may be a bit more rigorous even though I love the layout of OM and how it's taught to the child. Can anyone tell me what their thoughts are on The Rainbow and how well it worked? Thank you for reading and sharing!
  17. I have posted this in the logic forum, but I am wondering if it might be better to post it here among those of you who have BTDT. My DD12 is currently finishing Module #4 of Apologia General Science. She is not a really proficient reader, so she 'reads' the text along with the mp3(she will do this without complaint, but doesn't seem to retain much). I love the curriculum, but it doesn't seem to be engaging her. She struggles through the On Your Own questions, she will do the labs with dad, and seems to get them, but when we get to the review questions and the tests, I have nothing but a fight and tears. She claims she doesn't know the answers. Right now she wants to be a Vet Tech., so she knows she needs at least two sciences, and she understands that she needs to start working hard now in 7th Grade, to get there. She is still a very immature 7th grader though(barely starting puberty), so I am not sure if she needs to mature a bit. So, my questions are: 1. Do I just let her go through the text, 'reading' it, and doing the On Your Own questions, and call it good for this year? Accepting the fact that she is just getting a surface overview of it. Do I do the same next year with Physical Science year and then step it up in 9th Grade when she hits Biology? 2. Do I make her do them? I am finding it is killing her love of science, but I am feeling the pressure of high school coming. 3. Is there another creation-based science out there that is similar to Apologia, on maybe a little easier level, that could get her through this next couple of years? She is not a great scholar, but just an average kid. I do not want to debate the ease or toughness of Apologia, because I know that there are those that feel that it is light. We are not experiencing that here. Thanks in advance for your advice,
  18. We've tried different science programs for years and I always dreaded the labs because of the scavenger hunt it involved for every piece of equipment or material (piece of fur, anyone?) This year we switched to Rainbow for grade 7 and I love it. The kids love the writing in the textbook and the labs are great. The kit comes with everything, down to the little piece of string needed for an experiment. This just makes my heart feel so light and happy:)
  19. Would you please give me your opinions (positive or negative) on Rainbow Scinece Text??? My idea was to use it as a spine for outlining and narrative summeries. We would also read biographies and living books, continue with Lyrical Science and follow up with research based projects. I would very much appreciate your thoughts before spending so much for a text. Thanks, Dina :001_smile:
  20. Hi Everyone ~ Well it's back to the drawing board for a science sequence. DD really didn't care for the way RS4K was written -- just not her style so she only completed part of biology (begrudingly) along with all of Lyrical Life Science vol.I. :tongue_smilie: Science is my weak link, so I would sincerely appreciate any comments or suggestions you may have. I will be teaching The Elements and Middleschool Chemisrty by the ACS this year at co-op (only 24 weeks); but after re-reading TWTM, I decided I needed to incorporate outlining and narrative summeries as well as discovery into the mix for my DD. My goal is for her to be comfortable with science concepts, language, and labs so she will be prepared for the ACT and college. DD is not strong in math; her strengths / interests are in writing and the Humanities. Biology is her favorite science. Now, all that to say . . what are your thoughts on using The Rainbow Science text as a spine for outlining and narrative summeries over the next two years? We will read biographies and other books and follow up with research based projects. We will continue to use Lyrical Life Science and Earth Science along with dvds, and science programs. My thought is that she will get exposure to all the main disciplines before high school and we can focus on areas of interest when studying a specific discipline, botany for example. Then, for 8th grade focus in on biology using Bob Jones. I look forward to reading your feedback! Dina :001_smile:
  21. My d's will be starting 6th grade in the fall. What science program do you wish you had put your child in to prepare for high school?
  22. My 2nd dd is a Kinesthetic Learner. I was wondering what 6-8th grade curriculum you would recommend for a hands on learner, in all subjects. Thanks
  23. If you use Rainbow Science for your middle schooler, could you please tell me how you dc likes it. Are they challenged? Are there numerous experiments? Is it self-teaching for the most part? Do you feel that the science is solid? How religious is it? Thank you. We are needing to make a change.
  24. Our daughter is not a math/science type so we chose Rainbow Science for it's short lessons and fun looking labs. She is in 8th grade though and I'm wondering what others have done for 9th...did you just continue with Rainbow as is, or did you add to it? or do something else? The publisher says it can be used as is for 8th and 9th grades. I don't really want to plow through it (complete it all in one year.) She did Apologia General Science last year and really didn't care for it. Thoughts??
  25. I'm struggling with finding a science program to use for my son, who will begin 6th grade in a few weeks. I can't find anything that I really like, or that I feel like I'll follow through with (we've not completed a science program yet :glare:). I'm wondering how important 6th - 8th grade science programs are to prepare kids for high school science? Also, what specific subjects do you think are a must to cover before high school? I'm considering finding a science program and combining all of my kids, which would be a 6th, 4th, and 2nd grader. But, I don't want to make a mistake and go to light on science in the middle years if it will make high school science more difficult for my kids. Lastly, if anyone has any program suggestions, that would be appreciated. Thank you for any advice, Alison
