2 part question on science and history

Postby Fork29 » Mon Jan 03, 2011 1:47 am

I have been playing with the idea of only using the Lets-read-and-find-out science books for science for my daughter's science curriculum for first grade next year. First I want to know if you all think this is okay? Second, I was wondering if there is a series of books like the lets-read-and-find-out books, only for history instead of science that I could use for her history curriculum?

It will be fine to use those books for your daughter's science.

You could check your local public library to find something similar for history. Or you could look on amazon.com and/or check with Rainbow Resource.

Letter of the Week site has Science plans using those exact books! You might find them very helpful!

Check out Sonlight's science programs. Even if you do not follow it the website will give you some great ideas for books to use.
