Science for 8th Grade

Ewe Mama

Recommended Posts

I'm trying to come up with a short list of science programs from which Joy can select her favorite option. We are looking for something meaty, with a good balance of hands-on experiments and writing activities. She prefers something written to the student, with limited parental help needed. Christian-friendly is preferred, but secular is fine as long as it is respectful of various beliefs. We don't have a set topic in mind and are simply trying to find a publisher/program that will meet the above criteria.


She will be starting Geometry soon, so she is above grade level in math.


Thanks for your help!

The Rainbow perhaps? We looked closely at it last fall (DS/7th), but DS decided it had too much physics and what he really wanted was a lot of chemistry.


Science Shepherd is another one. They only offer life science for middle school levels.


For 8th DS wants high school level biology. We ended up choosing Biology: Exploring Life by Campbell. It's a secular textbook written for public schools.
