I’ve been planning for last couple of weeks a little here and there, but for the past three days I’ve been going at it full board!
My bottom is hurting from sitting at the computer for so many hours and my house is starting to look like a tornado hit it.
At the moment, I am still trying to decide if we will use the REAL Science Earth & Space curriculum that we already have but haven't used yet, or if we're going to do Life Science instead. My son says space and my daughter says life.
I was all set to use REAL Science, but then elizawill posted a link to a science curriculum that I thought looked really fun!
Also, I haven't yet added US History curricula to this list because I haven't completely decided 100% on anything yet.
Also, I’m still trying to figure out our US History curricula. I’ve been researching and have dug up a lot of different things, but I want to at least narrow it down to no more than three. I know I like the classical method as we use this with World History using HO, SotW, UILE of World History, KingFisher, living books, etc. So… right now, on my list to consider for US History is:
TruthQuest – I am fairly certain I will be using this (probably along with others, though)History of US
by Hakim – actually I ordered a copy of book 1 of this so I can see in person if I like it or not as I’ve read a lot of mixed reviews about it.The Complete Book of United States History
– I think I will probably use this along with something else as I understand it has really great activities in it.
