As you know last year we discovered Guest Hollow and used it for Chemistry. As I was planning for next school year I consulted with the two biggest critics - my boys - and they both agreed they wanted to use Guest Hollow for Physics! I'm pretty excited by this choice because they are excited and that means they will actually do the work!
What You Get:
When you order Guest Hollow Physics you will receive several items:
- Physics Schedule in Word and PDF
- Physics Workbook
- Physics Book List in Word and PDF
What Else Do You Need?
You will need to print out the workbook and possibly the schedule. (We choose to print it and the kids have it stored on their phones in ibooks so they can easily click on the links for the videos.) I like having it both ways because we use the printed schedule to check off completed assignments.
You will also need to provide all of the reading materials. This is a literature based curriculum. There are several ways you can acquire the books. You can borrow from the library, buy new or even buy used off stores like Thriftbooks. (That is how I purchase most of the literature we use in our home because it is usually a steal to do so. My only recommendation is to compare to new prices on Amazon because sometimes new is actually cheaper but not usually.)
Occasional products to do the hands on activities. (All in the Book List so you can prepare - speaking of this list - it is a great way to keep track of what you have on hand or need to pick up at the store or library.)
What Can I Expect From Guest Hollow Curriculum
Only speaking from our experiences last year with Chemistry, you can expect a different science year. (Unless you are already doing literature based studies.) This was one of the best years we've ever had. The kids liked that the books switched often. They loved all the practical knowledge they learned. In fact we finished school last month and they are still sharing things they learned. You'd be amazed at how many topics they covered during Chemistry and how much of it relates to every day life and current events. My husband and I are often surprised by what the boys add to our conversations.
WIN WIN WIN
One lucky reader will win Guest Hollow's Physics Curriculum!!
