I had already planned on using <a href="http://www.pressforlearning.com/" target="_blank">Building Foundations of Scientific Understanding</a> for science for both of my children. Even though it's meant for K-2 and my children are 8 and 11, I figured that it at least has to be a good jumping off point for us. I've started making lesson plans... even though we school year around, I hadn't planned on starting BFSU until the fall.<br><br>
Then, I saw several people mention <a href="http://www.singaporemath.com/MPH_Science_s/66.htm" target="_blank">My Pals are Here Science by Singapore</a> and I was too curious not to look! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol"> I realized while looking at their contents that the lessons could probably go hand in hand with the BFSU lessons.<br><br>
My thoughts are that I can use MPH to build upon what we are learning in BFSU. However, I am worried that by doing this I will be nullifying the purpose behind BFSU. That instead of learning to be scientific thinkers, we will be doing too many worksheets from MPH to enjoy the main purpose behind BFSU. kwim?<br><br>
Any thoughts? For those that have used MPH, is it writing/worksheet intensive? Does <b><i>anyone</i></b> have any other thoughts?<br><br>
Thanks!!
