Item Description...
This exciting, complete one-year science curriculum is presented in an easily understandable manner and is just as easy to use. Introductory information for the teacher provides guidance. Experiments, games, crafts, recipes, writing, songs and more are used to reach different learning styles. Orderly thinking skills (based on the scientific method) are reinforced throughout. Use the recommended student notebook approach as you spend eight weeks on each of four topics: Astronomy, Anatomy, Earth Science, Oceanography. The Reading Plan Chart keys every topic in the Scientist's Apprentice with the corresponding pages in the nine highly popular, optional books: (4) Magic School Bus titles, (4) DK Eyewitness Explorers titles, and It Couldn't Just Happen, available below. Reproducible pages and a pleasing layout make this a practical choice for busy homeschooling moms. Teach multi-grade levels at the same time. More interesting than a text and easier than creating your own study, the work's been done for you! Pbk. 200 pages. One year. K-6th

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Curriculum is lacking  Oct 24, 2008
I used The Scientist's Apprentice in a Science co-op last year with about 12 kids, ranging from K-3rd grade.

I was not impressed with this curriculum at all. It claims to be a K-6 curriculum, but in order to use it with the lower grades, there are a ton of modifications that need to be done. I found the material to often only skim the surface, and would offer difficult-to-understand explanations in just a few paragraphs. As an example, I just randomly opened the text to the "Five Senses" section where it talks about "Skin and Touch." Here is part of the first paragraph:
"Your skin is less than one-tenth-inch thick over most of your body. It's a fragile, water-tight shell enclosing your seventy-percent-water body. Skin keeps out dirt, germs, and ultraviolet rays. It also keeps your internal temperature comfortable. When you get hot, the blood vessels in your skin expand..."

In my opinion, the above text, as well as the majority in the text is too difficult for students to understand, especially K-3rd grade. Even just using it for upper elementary students would require additional explanation. Further, the experiments are not always very useful in understanding the material. There were many experiments that we weren't able to do, b/c being from Michigan, we weren't able to go outdoors whenever we wanted to do them due to weather constraints.

The majority of the year that I used this curriculum, I ended up starting with the subject that was suggested in the text and then searching around on the internet and at the library for materials and ideas about how to teach this to my students so that they would understand. I rarely followed the text, and only a handful of times did I do the suggested experiments.

In summation, this curriculum is not age-appropriate, it is complicated and lacking in explanation, and the experiments are not all that great either. There is much better science curriculum available to homeschool students.
