By the time I have bought this book, I have tried several various editions from other publishers and was never satisfied with what I saw as I was looking for a systematic approach. I have found it in the Exploring Creation with Chemistry and Physics. This book is perfect for homeschooling at the level of grade 6 but can be used in grade 7 level. All concepts are covered in a form that is clear to the student but at the same time at sufficient level to really build a knowledge. Every concept is supported by the "Try It" experiments which are very simple to do, but very to the point to support gained knowledge of the concept. Also quality of the print is very good which looks attractive to my child. I see my daughter reads the book with interest and is very keen on trying out all experiments. Never saw any interest to science in her before. And I do not need to browse through various books looking for supporting activities. All is there thoughtfully compiled into a one good course. Really happy with the result and highly recommend it to parents!
My boys and I are enjoying the hands on learning. (ages 9, 8, 3) They are understanding the concepts, having fun discovering, and remembering things. I love how they introduced the study of matter and energy connected to the creator of matter and source of energy, God.
However, I do not recommend this book if you are not prepared to do lots of simple experiments.
My boys are enjoying this. It is very easy to understand and they love all the hands on activities. Yes it is religious based for those who are looking for that, but it is easily taken out for those who do not. It is a bit too easy for my 12 year old, but he does enjoy the activities. I would also highly recommend the notebook that goes with. It makes it simple and organized for note taking and helps guide what to take notes on.
