We Loved It!
There is so much to love in this course! We’re enjoying the variety of ways to learn about the topic, and we love the way it points to the Creator!
I have used a lot of different curriculum over the years and not one of them has totally surprised me like CWS did and made me stop and go “WOW” with the content and approach!
The videos were highly entertaining and fast-paced. Information was shared in an easy-to-understand way that just made sense. And it was fascinating stuff. We learned about sinuses, airplanes, birds, why dogs drool and cats sip, hummingbirds, carburetors, box fish, and penguins. We read books, tried experiments, and went on field trips. What fun! There were constant reminders that God is our Creator!
We really do enjoy CrossWired Science. The information shared in the videos is amazing! I am loving how much information even I am learning. I love that there are additional unit links with a slew of videos to continue learning about these topics.
The biggest dilemma we encountered using CWS was a positive one. Using CrossWired Science, we get carried away and spend far more time studying science than our schedule typically allows. Inspired by the materials on the website, the girls want to keep on going.
To avoid spending an entire school day on this fascinating subject, I try to save science for the last subject of the day. After all, we need to cover English, math, and history as well!
It’s been amazing to see my girls’ love for science come alive as I’ve allowed them to think outside the textbook. After spending an entire month, we haven’t finished our first unit yet, but the twins are still learning new things.
Each unit is structured around a main topic which relates to a variety of scientific disciplines. At the same time, it allows freedom and gives direction to encourage students to explore other areas of interest through delight-directed learning.
I was given a choice between two global topics: Sound and Fluid Dynamics and I chose Fluid Dynamics and boy was I in for a surprise. We were having so much fun that I didn't realize we were learning so much!
I really enjoy this curriculum. I love the depth the lessons go into, but also the freedom it has with regards to experiments and activities. The videos are just fun and packed with information. There is just so much science fun with CrossWired Science! I really recommend you take a look.
my nine-year-old daughter is in her element and loving every minute of interacting with this program. This the first science program she has been eager to return to on the next day and the next with its interactive features.
I cannot wait until the creators have added more global topics for us to explore. If you have children who love science, I would highly recommend checking out this website.
Right now it's at the ground floor and with only the 2 Global Topics of Sound, and Fluid Dynamics, I think you would be set for 3 even 4 months of integrated science. It is a very flexible and thorough program. If you have a science lover, then this is the program for you!
Overall, I really love this program. I’m excited to dive deeper into it.
I’m also excited to see what the next Global Topics will be!
So, what did we think? I bet you can already guess that we loved it! I am such an eclectic homeschooling Mom! I like different things, to shake up the boring week with fun and educational videos or activities. Who doesn't want to tour an aquarium or cave? Or see the 3-lobed liver in a shark. Kaden also likes that most of the work is online.
My son could totally do this independently. And not once did he ever say he was bored or uninterested.
Core Videos: Mia loves the core videos. They help her to learn independently as she watches the videos and works through the Sound worksheets. The videos vary from length but under fifteen minutes. I can see my daughter's enthusiasm in wanting to learn more! I give these core videos a thumbs up because they help me to facilitate learning more in-depth.
After using this product for a number of weeks overall we enjoyed the interactive learning! Science has become fun and engaging!
Our experience with this company has been wonderful and we look forward to watching them develop and grow as they continue to create content and programming on their website!
The CrossWired Science program is a wonderful curriculum that can be used as a full science program or as a supplement to your regular program as you choose.
This program is still in its infancy but has already proven itself to be a valuable part of our homeschool toolbox. Scientists of all ages will learn through videos, experiments, field trips, interesting facts and more!
