    I’ve got a science loving 5 year old going into kindergarten next year. Apologia and Answers in Genesis are hard to choose between. Would you recommend one over another?

      Honestly for a Kindergartener I would wait for both of those. For prek-kinder we enjoyed the Usborne Science in the… books. They have Science in the Kitchen, Science in the Air, Things Outdoors, Science with Water, etc. They’re filled with fun experiments you can do and great for younger kids. I think the more formal science is better for a bit older kids 🙂 Just my opinion though! http://amzn.to/2HzdcWG

      This was my question exactly. We did Apologia (The young explorer journal) for K this year and we still only did about a 1/3 of the work. I felt like for the cost and what they can comprehend at this age…its just way more. Maybe in 2nd or 3rd grade levels we’ll go back. I’m hunting the internet for what to do for 1st grade. I really want something biblically based. At this point it looks like I need to just buy things individually (like Usborne, but something more Christian. Any recommendations?

    Great video! What are you doing for tests for Rainbow? Or is it enough to do the experiments?

    • erica April 2, 2018 at 2:28 pm

      We aren’t doing tests this year, we just go through the questions together and the labs. They do have review sections as well. You could probably make up your own tests from the questions if you wanted more.

    So is Rainbow appropriate for a 9th grade physical science program? Do you have to do both years? We are looking at BJU Physical Science for 9th but it’s tough to fit in 180 lessons.

    Hi Erica!
    Thank you so much for all this information:)
    I am looking into Answers in Genesis for my 5th grade daughter and I wanted to know your thoughts on just purchasing one subject at a time. For instance, just getting The Human Body teacher and student pack. Would the work be enough for the whole year or should I purchase a second curriculum?
    Thank you!

      Yes, it is designed to cover one topic per year.
