I have been using these materials for ninth grade science in my home school curriculum. Our family had read the books previously and loved them and so having the lesson plans has been wonderful. The teachers guide is easy to use and has activities that are fun to do and give students a very good overview of what it was like to be a scientist in early history and just how intelligent early scientists were. They also show students that they are using the concepts that were discovered many years ago all the time today. The activities include experiments as well as math formulas for finding areas of triangles and how number patterns work as well as other cool things. One of our favorites is the timeline, which we have all along one wall of our house. It really helps with historical perspective. It is not at all difficult for ninth grade. I make some of the lessons a little more challenging. These lessons could be used from sixth grade up I would think, with just a little more help, depending on reading levels and math skills. I would totally recommend these books.

This is so much more than I expected. Great in depth lesson plans and plenty of worksheets and overhead masters. Definitely worth the price I paid.

This curriculum is meant to accompany a particular textbook. However, since the textbook itself (written and published by different people from the curriculum) is bad, the curriculum doesn't follow it. That means, to use the curriculum, you have to dig the content out of the word-soup of the Teacher's Guide instead of reading it naturally and pleasantly out of a textbook. The teacher's guide itself is very big and wordy, but not very helpful. It is difficult to open it up and quickly find useful content, which makes this guide useless to me. Anything that requires hours of dedicated prep time is just not practical for homeschooling.

Here is an example of how the curriculum does not follow the textbook:

Our first lesson from this curriculum, I sat down and read the first two textbook chapters to my girls. Then we opened the workbook to look at what it had to accompany these two chapters. The workbook did not contain any additional readings or explanation, just a few questions. However, the questions assumed very specific knowledge (the Greek myth of Persephonie, plus how the Earth's rotation around the sun at a tilt creates the seasons on Earth) that was not addressed in either the textbook or the workbook. Since we had outside knowledge of these things, we went through the questions anyway, and found some of them very odd (such as one that asks the student to compare and contrast the "use of numbers" by this myth about the seasons to the use of numbers by the science of the seasons... There was really no framework for such a comparison laid out in the textbook whatsoever.)

I have sympathy for these people, assigned to repackage a thin, disorganized textbook as a curriculum. However, that doesn't mean I want to suffer with the result. This teacher's guide, along with the workbook and textbook, is now in the garbage. It is not worth our time.
