I was looking for a Creation Science curriculum to teach my daughters. I have a science background and was not happy with anything I had found until Apologia.
One thing I loved was that I could use it for multiple ages. They supply a activity for older students and younger students to go with the same chapter. I also liked that I could go to their website and print out and bind my own workbooks or buy their preprinted ones.
My favorite part of all is that they have supplement material to go with the book on their website. You enter a code from the book, which gives you access to more activities, age appropriate research material, and videos. I appreciated this as some of the older children activities were research based.
I find that at elementary age, I end up doing the research for them as it is hard to find research for their ages. You can also go to homesciencetools.com and order a kit which contains all necessary items for all the science experiments. They run about $30. When you get the kit, it might not seem like there is a lot in it, but you don't have to run to the store and buy a whole bag of feathers just to examine one, etc. I found it worth the time savings alone.
I also don't like lesson planning, so having everything in the box when we got to an experiment, the work book and extras at a click, and not having to modify the lessons myself to accommodate two children was wonderful. The pictures were fantastic as well.
I would use their curriculum again and recommend it. I also liked how they incorporated Bible verses into the lessons. Very pleased.Excellent review, Kirsten!
