How we used the program:
I let my 5th and 7th graders look through the e-science website and write down what they were interested in the most. We had some subjects that overlapped between the two of them so we started with those first and watched the videos, worked on some worksheets that we printed off and of course did some fun experiments. After a couple of weeks working together the kids went off in their own directions and worked on projects separately. I would print off worksheets for them and make sure we had supplies but they basically took over science each day. Several days I found them discussing how fun this program is and that they don't really think it should be called science, it's too much fun! I LOVE to hear that.
Fun fact: If you burped in Antarctica in the wintertime, it would begin to freeze as soon as it left your lips. The freezing temperature of CO2 is -109oF, and Antarctic winters can get down to -140oF.
Next year when it's time for the Science Fair with our homeschool group we've got it covered because with Supercharged Science, they have a whole section on science fair experiments. Whew, that's going to help me out so much because as most of you know mom and dad have quite a hand in the science fair projects (at least we do).Like I mentioned before, the Supercharged e-Science program is a complete online curriculum for children in grades K-12 and retails for $37.00/ month for the K-8 section and $57.00/month for the 9-12 section.
One thing I really appreciated about this program was the fact that they didn't mention evolution or creationism and I mention this because I know it's important to many of my readers.
