Electrifyingly Eclectic : )
I like how they have and are making this an all encompassing program, spanning across subjects. If you look through the many resources, activities, and experiments that are suggested, you will find something that appeals to everyone.
They also stress over and over again that you can use this program however you see fit. They really encourage an eclectic approach.
What type of homeschooler are you? We are fairly eclectic in our approach to learning. I have both classical and Charlotte Mason leanings, but we also enjoy unit studies, hand-on and practical methods, and elements of both student-led and traditional learning. We do enjoy a gamut of approaches.
This year’s science for my 4th grader is pretty traditional with text readings, comprehension questions, experiments, and tests. This actually works well for my son, but sometimes it is nice to mix it up a little. That is why I was excited for the opportunity to review CrossWired Science’s multi-sensory, online unit study (albeit eclectic) approach on Sound, and Fluid Dynamics.
