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.

    Not for homeschoolers September 13, 2016
    Reviewer: Indiarna  
    I have to adapt so much of this book so that it works for homeschooling, often finding or making my own worksheets, which really defeats the point of buying the book and online program.

    For example one page asks you to take a tally of how many boys, and how many girls are in your class.  Well we home school so one girl.  

    It also has experiments that come up that we have no way of getting the supplies for, or if we can get them it's a lot of money for a 2 minute experiment.  

    I will use bits of this, but we will keep looking for a better science home school curriculum.

    Maybe good for a classroom but not home June 6, 2016
    Reviewer: Tpalmer  
    The science curriculum is disappointing in many ways. First it is not user friendly at all and the teachers part is only online and it very difficult to find any information you need. It is also presented in a classroom setting so part of the time we cannot do the activities as a homeschool mom of one. Plus the supply list is difficult to find as well and there is no kit to purchase with this for one child. My child is also not nearly as interested in this as last years Apologia Science. Definitely wish we hadn't chosen this curriculum!

    Dissapointed... October 21, 2015
    Reviewer: Sarah T.  
    I didn't really know what to expect but the digital teachers version is pretty disappointing. I was able to access the online version easily enough but I still haven't figured out how to download it to my computer or tablet so I can access it when we don't have internet. I tried calling the support number but after going through the automated choices the response said they couldn't help over the phone and hung up. I really wish I would have only purchased the workbook, I feel like I wasted the extra money for a useless teachers edition. There are printable worksheets and tests but you have to go back to the main menu and scroll through a list then download each one individually, it would have been nice if they were grouped or had a link in the text. And the quality of the additional worksheets and tests are pretty poor in my opinion. At least the workbook looks great. My son is very excited and I can't wait to go through it with him. I feel that the questions posed are easy enough to not need a teachers edition to rely on for explanations. As the other review stated, this has a very "school" feel with instructions to poll students in the class or to work in groups which aren't always possible and I find that pretty disappointing as well but we can work around that.
