Beautiful living books
Living books nurture a scientist’s mindset of wonder and discovery in ways that traditional textbooks simply can’t. Noeo’s carefully selected library feeds the mind with stunning illustrations, engaging narratives, and exciting variety.
Freely adjust each week’s intensity to your child’s needs with a two-day or four-day per week schedule. And when life happens, from doctor’s appointments to unplanned family visits, Noeo’s flexibility means your family stays on track rather than burn out or get left behind.
Have multiple kids who want to learn the same subject? Perfect! We designed each Noeo level so kids across multiple grades can learn together, sharing books and experiments.
FOR VETERAN HOMESCHOOLERS
"I’ve homeschooled for over 10 years, and have used several different science programs. So far, this is the first curriculum my kids are actually learning from. It tells my kids about elements and chemical reactions as they see them in our everyday life—which is my goal, for them to see how science is always around us. This curriculum has been worth every penny spent. "
LOVED BY EXPERTS
For years I’ve advocated avoiding traditional science textbooks and, instead, choosing fewer topics to cover in more detail using real books and experiments. Obviously, many homeschoolers agree with me since publishers are increasingly putting together courses that fit this description. I think Noeo Science has done one of the best jobs yet!

FOR NEW HOMESCHOOLERS
"I’m new to homeschooling and teaching four children is a challenge. However, this science curriculum has been AMAZING for my family. It is so well put together that I barely have to do any work or prep. It’s also easy to tailor the curriculum to each child’s learning level: all four of my kiddos sit down and we do science together, and they’re all enjoying and learning from our combined lessons. We LOVE Noeo Science! We will be buying this every year!"
"A group of four families took turns teaching Noeo Chemistry 3 to six kids from 6th-9th grade. The course was very thorough and did a great job building on concepts. The books were very informative and interesting. Overall this was an amazing curriculum and more thought out than high school courses I've seen done from home. Our 6th grader wasn’t overwhelmed and our 9th grader didn’t think it was too easy. It was the perfect curriculum for our group this year!"
We love the programs flexibility. If a topic sparks interest we can dive in deeper. Only complaint is that in one of the books reptiles are called poisonous when the correct term is venomous.
Great books! I love the materials enclosed for experiments. The instructions are easy to follow.
This course is awesome!! You can tell a science teacher put this together. It is very clearly thought out, has a good pace, and has very good materials. My child is learning valuable skills such as writing out definitions and answering questions in complete sentences as well as science. The experiments are fairly simple but interesting.
My child could not do this alone but maybe in time will become independent enough to complete the work alone. This course will definitely improve my child’s skills in research, reading, and following directions.
Overall, this is a very good course and well worth the money. I will be purchasing more in the future.
This is a great science kit. Easy to use and love the way everything is laid out.
Biology 1 (Grades 1-3)
I purchased the newly revised chemistry 1 for my next school year with my rising K, 2nd and 4th grader. I've flipped through the entirety of the 3 new manuals/workbooks and they're vastly improved from years past. The living books look fantastic and the science kit has higher quality than the previous year when I purchased physics 1 and are thoughtfully packaged. I recommend Noeo all the time! We're a young earth creationist family and enjoy all the books and talk through any areas that allude to billions/millions of years as we need to as we go -- but they're few and far between in the living books. I really appreciate Noeo's customer service and attention to detail and quality through all the manuals and book choices. For us, experiments and activities are absolutely a must -- the more the better! So thank you Noeo for adding double the experiments/activities. That's a huge part of why I purchased -- that and how open and go (and simple) the schedule is! I know going through chemistry next year is going to be a favorite part of our week!
Easy to use, straightforward, love the easy experiments especially that most of the supplies come in the kit. This curriculum makes teaching science easy!
My son is digging in deep with Chemistry 2! It is perfect for a science-minded 4th grader! The lessons are laid out in a straightforward format, and the materials needed for the experiments were easy to obtain with the list provided. I have added some supplementary items, but only because of his interest in particular topics.
My 1st grader has loved science so much and always saves it for the end to have something to look forward to. I didn't love that the lab manual was kind of blank and useless without constant guidance from the teacher's manual, but I have already purchased the updated Physics 1 curriculum and am please to see that the new updated manuals give the kids clear instructions ("define x", "write one cool fact about y", etc.). From the ad I received, I understand they updated all lab manuals like this?
I would love more hands-on learning in the environment and animal units. Kind of slow and monotonous. I would also love a curated list of resources either each week or each unit that could point us at some great videos, documentaries, etc. that are not provided by Noeo but are easy enough to access online or in the library. I found a list of Magic School Bus episodes by subject and tried to make notes of them throughout the curriculum, but it took a while and sometimes didn't match up as well as I had hoped. Towards the end of the animals unit when the kids were losing interest, I finally started looking for documentaries, with inconsistent results. Heck, we watched "Happy Feet" for science one day (pausing for nature discussions), and the kids remember a lot about penguins now.
Oh. random, but the yeast we got was apparently dead (likely from the shipping), and provided an excellent teaching opportunity when we did the experiment again with live yeast from the fridge. It certainly emphasized proving your yeast before baking.
EDIT: Y'all, I just looked at the updated samples of the Lab and Teacher's manuals for this curriculum and I it looks to have made some amazing changes like what I had mentioned in my review. Changed from 4 to 5 stars. You should definitely get this curriculum if you're on the fence. My year with it was so fun and the new index is making me a little bit jealous of all the additional experiments and activities future students will get to enjoy. Well done, Noeo!
I taught Chem I to by 3 kids (1st, 2nd, and 4th). They loved the books and experiments and were really able to understand what was being taught. This is by far the best science curriculum I've found and we will continue with Noeo science next year. My one criticism is that it wasn't as balanced as I'd like - with one or two weeks of all writing/now taking and then 3 weeks of all experiments. However, we understood that we needed to learn the subject before the hands-on part would make sense. Overall, I'm thrilled with the curriculum.
A group of 4 families each took turns teaching these lessons to a group of 6 kids from 6th-9th grade. This curriculum was very thorough and did a great job building on concepts. The textbooks used were very informative and interesting. I will say some of the mom's thought this curriculum was only so-so and didn't think the lessons were very connected. Those mom's didn't do the readings every week like I did. I read these readings out loud to the kids on Marco Polo so some of them (with reading challenges) could keep up with the course. Since I did all the readings along with the kids, I was able to always connect the dots from one week to the next even if I wasn't the one to do the experiments with the kids. The experiments didn't always work but MOST of them did and helped describe concepts that the kids had never known to discuss before. Overall this was an amazing curriculum and more thought out than high school courses I've seen done from home. Our lone 6th grader was not overwhelmed and our 9th grader did not think it was too easy. It was the perfect curriculum for our group this year! We were able to finish the whole course in one year doing 1-2 lessons, 3 times a month (we meet once a week on Wednesdays and do a rotating 3 weeks science and then one week field trip then repeat). We did the readings during the week before meeting up and met every Wednesday for the experiments. On weeks when there wasn't an experiment (not often ) we came up with another way to teach that concept and drive it home. Thank you Noeo!
I like how organized the week's lessons are. The materials are good quality and I like the YouTube suggestions. I was dreading the microscope stuff, but that has turned out to be fun!
Everyone is loving it Even me
We are loving the beautiful books and interesting curriculum!
