    Enjoyable and doable!

    We have really enjoyed NOEO Biology 1 so far. The reading selections are easy to do, and we have all learned a lot. Having the activities all prepped means we are actually doing them.

    We aren't using the worksheets because my son isn't a strong writer yet, but I think it's nice that they are available.

    As a busy mom of 7, I love this curriculum. The books included are great and not overkill. I wouldn’t consider myself someone who enjoys science, but this kit really makes it fun. The experiments are fun and easy to do and my second and third grader have liked them all so far.


    I've been really happy with my purchase. My kids really have enjoyed it too!

    Best way to learn

    We love how he learns so much without it seeming like he’s learning. It’s much more fun to read through a series of purposeful books then a daunting big text book and so many skills are incorporated like writing and study skills etc.
