I love the notebook that you can purchase with really reinforces everything

We were very pleased with the Astronomy curriculum by Apologia. We worked with a co-op for this subject only and it was great. The information is deep, yet written in easy to comprehend language. The experiments and projects are fun to do. We did the whole book in a semester with the co-op, although it may be done over the course of a year. We are looking forward to starting the next in the series, which is Botany.

Look at the two different notebooking journals. There is a regular version and a Jr. version. We bought both and use both with our son depending on his needs. We love the detailed color pages of the Jr. Journal yet the activities in the regular version were more his age level. I used this with our 2nd and 3rd graders together and got both notebook journals so we can vary the activities to the abilities of the child. Love this curriculum, I can't say enough good things about it.
