When I first contacted Nancy Larson Science about possibly receiving a review copy of their Level 3, I was unaware how complete and well thought out everything would be. We've never used a science curriculum before, because the twins are nerds, and love their science, so this will be different for us. Madon Daily their homeschool manager, was wonderful and very helpful. She directed us to Level 2 as a better option for the kids, based on skill and knowledge level rather than basic age.
The company is very generous, and was happy to send a full set of Level 2, including an extra set of books so both kids could have their own materials at no charge for us to review. Given the complexity of the program, and level of involvement every section will require, we will be reviewing each section on its own merits. That way, you can really get a good feel for each section, and how the curriculum will work for your family.
The is a really beautiful science set, it comes with the physical supplies for each lessons, but you'll have to add things like water of course. I've got two boys jumping up and down for joy after looking at everything, and I can't wait to get started! I have a feeling this will be a fantastic set for them.
Level 2 covers:
- Physical properties of matter
- Rocks and minerals
- Forces and work
- Simple machines
- Sound and light
That's a pretty simplified list, there is so much more to Nancy Larson Science Level 2 that I think you should check it out on their website, and ask your own questions.
Here are a few photos from our opening party - I hope you like them as much as I do!
