After using Dr. Wile’s upper level science curriculum with my older children for years, let’s just say this Homeschool Mama was pretty thrilled to see Dr. Wile finally come out with curriculum for the younger set!
Dr. Wile’s upper level curriculum is outstanding. In fact, so much so, that I don’t even shop upper level science curriculum anymore. I know what we are using is the best, and you know the old adage, ‘if it ain’t broke…’ . Yep– it IS that good.
So, I really wondered if his new offerings would measure up.
Science: IN THE BEGINNING is a beautiful hardcover of almost 300 pages. This title’s lessons are based on the Bible’s creation account, using the days of creation as a way of introducing scientific concepts. Study the nature of light, the properties of air & water, botany, the solar system, zoology, basic human anatomy & physiology and more—built on the foundation of our magnificent Creator—who created it all! Each lesson has a hands on activity that engages the children and helps to illustrate the concept being taught, and concludes with lesson review. Depending on your childs age/stage you could do this review in oral narration format or written format. Another fantastic bonus with Science: IN THE BEGINNING is that it is multi-level! You can teach to a variety of ages at once and each lesson address these levels with content geared toward the “youngest students, older students and oldest students”. You decide which level best fits your children. Dr. Wile also created a accompanying “Helps and Hints” book for parent / teachers that includes all we need to direct and teach this wonderful curriculum! You can even download the accompanying Student Workbook –FREE, at www.BereanBuilders.com . NICE perk!
I would highly recommend Science: IN THE BEGINNING, not only did Dr. Wile’s latest curriculum measure up…it exceeded my expectations! I guess my elementary science curriculum shopping days are over, too! WooHOO! Really–was there any doubt? Dr. Wile IS Homeschool Science.
Dr. Wile has another top notch curriculum winner here-what a blessing to homeschool families everywhere! You’ll find this outstanding curriculum and all of Dr. Wile’s offerings at www.BereanBuilders.com
PS–No, I wasn’t paid for this review. I just love sharing and helping other homeschool families find the best for their children!
