This audio book is a wonderful bonus to an awesome curriculum. It allows the student to determine how long each reading assignment is, prevents the student from having to stop and look up the pronunciation of difficult words/names, and provides another form of learning to the student. Now that the audio is available here at audible.com, instead of just on disc, it just makes it that much easier to access and use. The narrator's voice does not drag or cause boredom to set in. She does an excellent job reading the teaxt.
The science text is fantastic and helps transition students from elementary studies to higher level science. The experiments are all easy, but they accomplish what they are intended to do. (I highly recommend purchasing the kit for the experiments.) This textbook is great for middle school age kids, but also for adults who did not have the privilege of studying science from a biblical worldview as a child. I learned a lot, and enjoyed teaching this subject. There is a lot of Bible and history in this science text, and it is fascinating. There are 16 modules covered and they are:
1 - A Brief History of Science
2 - Scientific Inquiry
3 - How to Analyze and Interpret Experiments
4 - Science, Applied Science, and Technology
5 - The History of Life - Archaeology, Geology, and Paleontology
6 - Foundations of Geology
7 - The Fossil Record
8 - Uniformitarianism and Catastrophism
9 - What Is Life?
10 - Classifying Life
11 - The Human Body: Fearfull and Wonderfully Made
12 - Energy and Life
13 - The Human Digestive System
14 - The Human Respiratory System and Circulatory System
15 - The Human Lymphatic, Endocrine, and Urinary Systems
16 - The Human Nervous System
I would give this series 10 stars if I could.
This audiobook is a great addition the text book. The reader uses enough influx for it to be interesting, and keep the listeners attention. My son has loved using it along with the textbook because a takes a huge load off when 6 pages of reading are required.
