Creation based astronomy
Review by marilyn
Good astronomy course, I love that it doesn't have lots of work sheets with it, and that it gives us some free days every week!
Beautiful Book
Review by Julie
The book is absolutely beautiful! Lessons are well laid out, and and very enjoyable!
Challenging, but engaging
Review by Beth
We used this set for an 8th grader. He enjoyed it so much that we've bought the high school version too. Challenging enough but interesting, engaging, and "fascinating," says the boy. Truthfully an open-and-go curriculum that isn't overwhelming for the student OR the person who has to check the work!
Great intro to Astronomy
Review by Amanda
This course is a great intro to astronomy. The book is very colorful and interesting, and the worksheets are simple and not overwhelming. I love how it is laid out in a 2-3 day schedule so we can be flexible with our classes. We were able to add this as a second science this year and it worked out very well.
Beautiful course
Review by Christina
This book is absolutely beautiful. My daughter has really enjoyed the textbook and it was a nice short course ( worked at faster than suggested) to fill in the last semester before high school. Great overview into astronomy!

A slow start, but lots of good info
Review by AJ
This one took a couple chapters to feel comfortable in, but after that my son is learning quite a bit. He has a new found fascination with the skys! Hopefully during the summer he can really get to see them well!
