Choosing Apologia has been one of our best decisions for our school.
The lessons are very well written and compiled. The experiments are ‘do-able’ and fun. We have enjoyed every aspect of this curriculum.
We waited until higher grades to introduce a ‘formal’ science curriculum… Choosing nature study, unitit study, and topical books and biographies the earlier years.
Even though my students had never used a ‘real’ science text book before, they very easily learned to use the Apologia textbooks.
The text is written in conversational tone, which is delightful to read and to the point. The pages are simple and clear, with no ‘busy-ness’ to distract the students eye along the margins.
And I, as the teacher (and not a science major!) have not been left wondering ‘what is it they want you to do!’ I have with other curriculum we have tried!
Several moms have used this before me and have shared planning sheets and we even made lab books to go along and they document each experiment.
I plan to use it for all the higher science in my homeschool.
