I like the Answers in Genesis. The lessons are accurate in terminology, concise, and experiments use only household supplies (or so close as to make little difference). Scripture is right there, but not just token stuff. Keep your KJV (or preferred version) at the ready. They semi-recently moved from black-and-white to color on the interior pages - much prettier. When it comes to math books, I prefer black-and-white, but with science, somehow color belongs. The world is in color, too, so I guess I find that just more fitting.
I have pilfered suggestions from the Well-Trained Mind, as well. They do very well for scope and sequence. Don't know if you are familiar with Susan Wise Bauer (of The Well-Trained Mind), but she is a proponent of Classical Education. And she is a Christian, although it may not seem so sometimes in her writing - she wants to be able to speak to as many as possible w/o alienation. The libraries carry very good science books these days. You are probably best-served if you have cards for at least 2 different libraries. We have cards for 4, but we get around because the disabled daughter has regular therapy in different places and we just make time to go - homeschool schedules are fantastic for that. I'll look upstairs on the sciences bookshelf for you - just can't remember right here, right now.
At what point does 'humility' become transposed with 'willful ignorance' in that sentence?One of Ghandi's Seven Sins is "Science without Humility", and I chose to bring the "humility" portion into our education with a healthy dose of Christian thought.
We are homeschooling our kids with a christian mindset, but we aren't 'young earthers'. I think that 'creationism' is the work of man, not of God.
Disclaimer: I eat 'meat and vegetables' ala Primal, although I don't agree with the carb curve. I like the Perfect Health Diet a lot.
