Wow! I'm impressed.
I just found your site thru a search of the
Well-Trained Mind boards. I look forward to using the Life
Sciences book next year with my daughter--I was looking for something
that would teach classification and a few of the other topics. I
really like what I saw!
Thought you might like to see this.
Have a great day Mr. Q and thank you for Chemistry my son loves!
I made a
tutorial for the paper making activity in Chapter 3 of Unit 1 of
Classic Science. If you had not mentioned that I could use pantyhose,
we would have NEVER done this activity. Thanks!
The Snail's Trail
You can download free pdf files of
the entire 36 chapters with worksheets plus a parent copy with
activities and tests, or just parts of it. It is written in a humorous
style, with comic book style pictures of animals and talking in
bubbles to break up the information. I'd say it is very high interest,
easy reading, not dry or boring. My son is 7 and I think he will
really enjoy it a lot. I haven't read through the whole book yet, but
we'll definitely be using at least some of this next year.
This seems to be the work of one awesome
teacher who goes by the name of Mr. Q. His site is
here and he also has a newsletter you can sign up for.
Thank you Mr. Q, who ever you are.
Two very nice reviews of the Life
Science Curriculum was provided by the folks at
Bringing Up Learners and
you guys very much!
I just wanted to take time out to tell
you thank you for all of your hard work on the Classic Science
homeschool book. My daughter is in the 7th grade and has struggled
with reading science Kindergarten. I took her out of traditional
school and decided to homeschool three years ago. We tried every
curriculum out there for science & history; She was bored to death and
didn't understand it no matter how hard I tried. I accidentally found
your site a few weeks into school this year and fell in love. I know
that this is for lower grades - but she gets it and looks forward to
science. I even have to top her from doing science now. I wish you
knew history so she would be as excited! We will be back for your
other book when she finishes this one.
Thank you from the bottom of my heart!
You truly have a calling!
I wanted to thank you for your science site for home-scholars. Before
I became a mom I was a geologist/engineer and taught college geology
labs. When I started looking for elementary science curriculum that
was not religious for my 5 year old I was dismayed. There was very
little out there. She is quite advanced, very excited about
science and I needed something I could whiz through quickly with her
that was fun. Thanks for you hard work and contribution to the
education of our children. The state of science education in this
country is appalling. These kids need all the help they can get! I
wish I could send you lots of money for your efforts but my lottery
tickets keep coming up losers. But we can dream.
Thank you for
your great science curriculum! My seven year old daughter really
enjoyed Life Science and looks forward to Earth Science this coming
year. I particularly appreciate the way you explain how things are
without delving into the various speculations about how they got to be
Thank you for creating a superior
I have just
ordered your Elementary Physical Science curriculum. My son so
enjoyed the classic science last year that I had to continue with you
this year. I wish you were my science teacher! You seem like such
I just found your books and am so excited! I just wrote about them on
Thank you again!

homeschoolers. We used the free (thank you so much!) biology
curriculum last year and I purchased the Earth Science curriculum for
this year. We love your products and have promoted your work
everywhere we could!
He is very engaging...I think my boys
are really going to like this! The experiments sound fun to me, too.
A big thank you to everyone on the
following list who have generously promoted the Classic Science Series
on their website/blogs:
I know there are
many more blogs and email lists out there that have helped to spread
the word about the Classic Science curriculum. To all of you who
are not mentioned on this list, thank you very much! I could not
do this without you! I hope to place many more links and sites
on my blog as I become aware of them. Thank you guys!
