Timberdoodle's review
 
Interactive Science
No one program works wonderfully for every family. Yet, until now we offered no alternative to Apologia, simply because we could not find one worthy of Timberdoodle's recommendation. Interactive Science is the perfect fit.

Notebooking in Your Textbook
Notebooking, or making a notebook of all your scientific discoveries of the year is one of the most effective ways to learn. Not only does it give your child a single place for their workbook pages, science experiment results and observations, but it also helps your child take the time to consider and write down the highlights of what they learned.

Truly Interactive Approach
Interactive Science's bright pages offer a huge variety of lesson styles and activities. Each chapter begins with questions designed to get your young scientist thinking about and predicting answers relating to this month's subject. You'll then find the information essential to the month's studies, all written to the student and laid out in a friendly, non-overwhelming fashion. Each chapter also includes vocabulary cards, worksheets, hands-on science activities, chapter reviews, problem solving activities, an Investigate It! section with a chance to put together everything learned in the chapter, and more! Complete, engaging and varied, what more could you ask for?

New For 2015
Your Homeschool Bundle comes with a one year access code that allows you to download or view the complete teacher's edition online. All the content is there without the expense of another book! You can even download it to your iPad if you like. You also have access to the complete student edition online as well as additional activities and videos.

A Note for Conservative Christians
Interactive Science is written from a secular perspective so evolution and evolutionary dating are mentioned on occasion. Unlike other texts we've reviewed, this isn't a main focus of Interactive Science. If this is otherwise the perfect program for your student, don't be discouraged by that, but do be sure to take time to discuss the issues with your child.

That Awkward Subject
Secondly, and perhaps even more importantly, Interactive Science does address that awkward subject of reproduction. Take time to skim the pertinent lesson or two and determine if your student really needs/is ready for this information. The subject is handled tastefully and teaches about body systems rather than any titillating details, yet at least in Life Science (6th-8th grade) our family would probably have skipped a lesson or two until we were older.

Another outstanding component of Timberdoodle's 2016 Sixth-Grade Secular Curriculum Kit!

This is a good curriculum but needs a few updates January 12, 2016
Reviewer: Linda  
As a whole, we really enjoy this curriculum and I am looking forward to using the first grade one for my son next year. As a resource, it is very informative but not dry and we found it to be very relevant with the "science matters" at the end of each chapter. It is interesting to see how science is used in medicine or even things like recycling. I do not like this company. They have left numerous emails unanswered and again their ebook/interactive non public school access is clearly an after thought. Again thanks to Timberdooble, they went above and beyond to help with issues. As a curriculum, it is awesome but their customer service not so much.
