Overall, this was a good curriculum. It would be nice if there was a Middle School supplement with more advanced activities for older kids who want to go just a bit deeper but are in between the elementary age and high school. I spent a LOT of time researching and coming up with my own activities to make it more interesting for the older crowd.

Started using this and love it. I usually follow up certain skills by showing youtube videos so they get another explanation of the different chemistry and physics topics.

I thought this textbook was a good introduction to chemistry and physics, but I wouldn't say it is a k-5 book. I'd recommend it for an advanced 4th grader or 5-7 grades. My kids loved the experiments but their eyes glazed over during the readings.

We have enjoyed using this book this year. The lessons are broken down into small enough chunks that it isn't overwhelming for children or the teacher. My child has learned a lot and we have loved the many experiments.

Apologia is our favorite science curriculum with this title being the top of our list. It is comprehensive introduction to chemistry and physics. I appreciate that it is easily adaptable so that I can use it with all three of my children who are in different grade levels.

We enjoyed this curriculum for the most part. There were lots of Try This experiments. We ended up skipping quite a few of them because there were so many. Lots of information! I think this would be a better curriculum for upper elementary kids.

My daughter wanted to study Physics--and an elementary level Physics course is NOT an easy thing to find! We used this Chemistry/Physics course for her in 4th grade, and she loved it! It is very simple to understand, yet really gave her a good introduction to the Physics she was interested in. Guess what? After going through this book she is even MORE interested in Physics, so I look forward to doing the Apologia high school level Physics class with her soon!

We have loved this curriculum over the past year. The reading material is very engaging and imformative, sometmes to the point of overload. Overall, they have learned SOOO much though. The Try This activities are the weak point; they seem to need more research description. I often found it best to look up my own activities to demonstrate the concepts. This happened more than once per chapter, but he chapters are very activity heavy, which is great for making the science real to the kids.

Pros
It's very interesting and thorough. It covers A LOT of material with much detail.
Cons
The "Try This" activities have often not worked for us; either the directions were insufficient or the activity just didn't work.

this is an engaging book. Great informative concepts presented in an intelligent, thought provoking way.The experiments ware fun and useful. Easy to implement; great springboard for stirring up even more interest. I would not hesitate to use with 3-6 graders. However, if I was teaching the younger set with no older kids in the mix, I would choose one of the other Exploring Creation books. This book held my kids' interests and inspired them to read more about the topics.

Love the Christian viewpoint that builds support and shows evidence rather for Bibkical truth. Lessons are well planned and paced. Activities are fun and engaging for students and relevant to continent.
