RootAnn Posted March 7, 2012 Share Posted March 7, 2012 I'd like some Hive Advice (Xpost from the main K-8 board). I've been waffling over my curriculum choice for (logic stage) biology for this fall for my oldest. Should I get Elemental Science or ClassiQuest? My kids are not particularly science-y, but they like experiments (although not writing them up). We have not yet found a science "program" we are happy with. We tried Biology a la WTM, Apologia, God's Design, physics via "kits" and "real books" (very NOEO-ish w/out NOEO's plans), and this year we are doing Beautiful Feet's History of Science. There is no way I can teach two completely separate science levels. My time is already going to be maxed out (6th, 4th, 1st, & two VERY active (destructive) preschool/toddler boys). So, my thought was that whichever program I chose for Logic Stage, I'd bring the younger two along with ES's Biology Lapbooking program. I would love some opinions from people who have seen it, used it either as a supplement or a spine (adding living books, perhaps), or tried it & discarded it. Which logic stage program is better suited to add ES's lapbooking program to? Would I be better off just sticking with all-Elemental Science? Or, would a different perspective from the two programs make a good combo? Ideas? Comments? Other options I haven't considered? Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
