knit247 Posted September 10, 2012 Share Posted September 10, 2012 (edited) Absolutely no idea what to do for science this year and we are already in wk 5. TBH we haven't done a thing - consistently - in science yet. However, my almost 11 yo loves science and constantly reads all she can on any science-related subject (and we have tons of books - from WTM elementary suggestions, Easy Classical, SL, and probably another program or two I bought & didn't use)! I spent the greater part of the morning looking through science posts in this forum, which left me more confused than ever :lol: The only thing I do know is that I do not want a young-earth text, as I am simply not sure what I believe on that topic (FWIW we are Protestant Christians). So far I like the looks of science TWTM way, but can't tell that many actually do it. Why not, I wonder? I have also considered SL, as I like how it is all planned out. Not sure I will like jumping around, but if it is a good and complete program I can certainly manage. I looked into BFSU. Am I understanding that there are just three books? How would that work - one for each stage? Finally I looked into RS4K. I really like the fact that it doesn't teach any particular world view, but not 100% sure why that appeals to me right now. Perhaps there is a downside to that? Also, would I be able to do elementary biology alongside middle school biology, or would that be too difficult? Thanks so much for any advice! I am also open to other programs (yikes)! Edited September 10, 2012 by knit247 spelling Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
