runamuk Posted May 27, 2009 Share Posted May 27, 2009 I've bought everything for 4th grade except science and I still have no idea what to buy. We tried RS4K, but my daughter didn't care for it and the experiments didn't always work. I bought the Usborne and Kingfisher books and tried to cobble together my own program, but ended up doing nothing. I then bought Adventures of Atoms & Molecules and it came with a wonderful (handwritten) schedule of readings and experiments, but the my daughter hated the Kingfisher readings. So I used AA&M with RS4K and it worked for a while, but I didn't like having to figure it all out myself so science didn't get done. Science was never my strong point when I was in school. I found the textbooks dull and the lectures coma-inducing. I never understood chemistry and even rescheduled my physics class for an art class. What I need is a program that is laid out for me. I don't want to have to figure out what chapter to read next, what experiment goes with what chapter, or figure out what supplemental readings to pick up for the material. I'd like a CM based science program and my daughter wants experiments and activities. I'd like to learn about scientists along with the scientific principles. It needs to be fun and secular. Is there a science curriculum out there for us? Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
