    Lifepac Science Curriculum Review – Middle/High School

    The Lifepac science curriculum consists of 10 workbooks (Lifepacs) and a teacher’s guide in a set. It works well for independent student work or minimal teacher instruction and adapts well for homeschool use. The teacher’s guide includes answer keys and limited support material. This curriculum covers all the science topics, but with limited detail. The hands-on lab learning experience is not robust as it should be, but is acceptable for students without a strong science interest. We do not recommend this curriculum for students who enjoy science or want a rich hands-on learning experience. This curriculum presents a Christian creationist worldview.

    Great!
    My son loves this. He is technically 6th grade; however, while he finds it challenging, it is also interesting to him. It is nice to not have to flip back and forth between a textbook and a workbook. (Review by Kris H.)
