Real Science 4 Kids in previous posts, we are currently using their Chemistry program and it's great. The price is right, I ordered the digital copy and can print off as many as I need (unlimited home school licence) or just use the computer and save paper. The middle grades (5-8) is what we are using, the reading is great and the lab experiments are fun and use mostly household items. Their website has so much to offer including on line classes, clubs and science experiments. We haven't done any of those and probably won't but we will continue next to Biology and then physics for sure.
This chapter was about chemical reactions, what a blast. Corey really enjoys the whole concept, I think Molly just enjoys making a mess, but I'll take it. Her lab notes are precise and she clearly understands what is happening and why.
It's nice to have something fun to mix in with our recent history discussions I posted about here. We definitely need these reasons to smile to offset the sad realizations we have some days.
I can imagine them as adults talking about their "lab experiments" as children together.
