Nature Science Curriculum for Preschool-2nd graders?

Postby MamaManda » Tue Aug 05, 2008 10:41 pm

I am looking for a nature/science curriculum for my 4 year old. I would like it to cover areas such as nature, animals, elements, seasons, etc., and have age appropriate activities.
We have not yet used a science curriculum, as many I find are for older children, or a classroom setting, but we have done alot of self-led learning, and I feel it is time for a more informative program. He is currently 4, and in 1st grade curriculum, and would probably do well with the preschool- 2nd grade level. I would also prefer it to be Creation based.
Do you have any recommendations for me?

You could check into Apologia's Zoology, Exploring Creation series for elementary. They have them listed for grades K-6...The experiments would be fun and interesting and are very easy to do.

I highly recommend Apologia. For the elementary ages they offer Zoology 1,2 &3. They also have Botany and Astronomy... I may be missing something.

I use this company for some of our supplies. They also carry curricula:

Another company with lots of fun science stuff is:

Answers in Genesis also sells a Creation science curriculum. I read the reviews and it really looks good. I plan on using it when my dd becomes of age!
