Teaching science to elementary age children is a time for transition and for growth. It is a great time for students to take on responsibility and to become more independent in their studies.
We have asked some Teach Them Diligently families what their favorite Elementary Science curriculums are. Those are listed below with a link to our complete Homeschool Family Favorite Guide.
The Top 3…
Apologia Science – From their website: This course is for elementary grades. We encourage you to follow your student’s interests when choosing a Young Explorer title. There is not a particular order in which to complete the books in the series.
God’s Design From Masterbooks – From their website: A complete earth science curriculum for K-2nd graders, the lessons feature beautiful color pictures, age-appropriate activities, worksheets, Scripture learning, writing practice, and more. Fun and easy-to-use, the God’s Design Series – for Beginners curriculum is ideal for anyone who wants their children to understand creation from a solidly biblical basis.
Memoria Press Science and Nature Guides – From their website: Before you can study nature, you have to know what nature is. Memoria Press’ science program has two goals prior to high school science. First, we introduce students to the world of nature by studying the things it is made up of—birds, insects, trees, mammals, and the heavenly bodies. Second, students are given a narrative account of the development of the sciences—they are given science in a story form, in a way they can best understand it. They are then ready to study high school science using the excellent Novare Science Series.

4. Abeka Science – From their website: Homeschooling is an opportunity for parents to give their children the education they need to succeed. The first step to their success: choosing an educational curriculum that invests in your kids the way you do. Our proven spiral learning approach helps kids retain more of what they learn.
5. Berean Builders Science – From their website: Science in the Beginning is the first book in a hands-on, multilevel elementary science series that introduces scientific concepts using history as its guide. Because each lesson is built around an activity or experiment, it is engaging for all K-6 students. In addition, there are three levels of review for each lesson, so the parent/teacher can choose the depth at which each student is expected to grasp the material. The course contains roughly 90 hours of instruction, 35 of which are composed of hands-on activities.
