      Mostly good materials, awkward presentation

      We were really hoping to love this curriculum, but a few weeks in, we've decided to just adapt it to meet our needs. The biography on Newton was very dry and boring, so we found a different one. The first book we read about physics was so far over both of our heads, we were very overwhelmed! My 16 year old son loved it. The workbook seems like a waste of money. So many pages of writing lines, without guidance as to what to write about. I'm making up my own items, like having him write and diagram the three laws of motion, or on another page, the three laws of planetary travel. We love the physics kit! But we were disappointed that a lot of the experiments are skipped, and we want to do them all. We've decided to just read through all the books, do all of the experiments, and journal along as we go. Using this as a book reference list would probably have sufficed and been less expensive.

      As for the lesson book being awkward, a simple formatting change would have helped. Have the reading suggestions on the left side and the details of each day on the right side. I feel like I was constantly flipping back and forth to figure out what they wanted us to do. The prompts weren't clear. "Journal what you learned." That is too vague for my 7th grader.

      Parents looking for an open and go science curriculum will be happy with this program. My son is more of a hands-on learner and he really enjoys the projects. The accompanying manual for grades 7-8 still has primary lines with the dashed middle line for guided writing. I was surprised to see this paper in a middle school lab manual. We bought a DIY Thinking Tree notebook and my son was very happy with that.
