The Science of our Choice

I really like Apologia Science. My oldest daughter used Swimming Creatures of the Fifth Day in 6th grade. This year we are using General Science. It is a great overview of science and although my daughter isn't thrilled about science--I really like this curriculum.

Knowledge Box Central has a lapbook for General Science that has really helped my daughter to logically lay out the information and remember it.

Donna Young has a link for Apologia General Science that includes a schedule, lab sheets, worksheets and a lot more! She has the whole book laid out into a daily schedule--so helpful!

This link is from a General Science Co-op. The teacher has listed lots of helpful links to the modules along with free downloads.

Apologia is written from a Christian perspective by a homeschool father and university professor. I have been learning right along with my daughter. When my now first grader becomes a better reader, I will start her on the elementary books (probably in third grade). I'm looking forward to going through these books with her (and my little guy, eventually).

Apologia Science works for us! To read other Works for Me Wednesday ideas, visit We are That Family.
