So a few months back, I shared a little about our homeschool science curriculum, Noeo, here. We had not gotten far into the curriculum at the time, but were really enjoying it. Several months later, I can say with much more certainty than I did before: We will use Noeo Science to carry us all the way through our homeschool journey! It is the perfect fit for our family as J's love of reading and hands on activities, takes center stage with Noeo.
Since I last posted, we have looked at fungi and Louis Pasteur, the ocean habitat, all about fish, the cactus habitat, and just wrapped up our butterfly and moth studies. J is very much looking forward to the wood habitat starting this week.
J carried out an awesome experiment with bacteria and antibiotics after reading all about Louis Pasteur's discoveries. Everything we needed for the experiment was included, with the exception of our saliva...such a pain free way to conduct science experiments in your homeschool classroom!
Most of the other topics we have studied recently don't have big corresponding experiments, so I have supplemented with lots of fun arts and crafts projects and helpful worksheets, diagrams, and other activities to keep the learning environment exciting.

The literature chosen to accompany the Noeo curriculum, also keeps the learning experience from becoming boring. They are fun, colorful, and unbelievably informative for all elementary aged students. J often comes to ask if he can read through the books we have already covered! I love that he can't get enough of all areas of science, and Noeo has definitely been a contributing factor to that this year.
Perhaps the most significant influence Noeo science curriculum has provided, is J's new constant awareness of science, nature, and God's creation all around us. Spring is a great time to see nature at its best in Central Texas, and J is always on the lookout for the next great camera snapshot of nature. I am so thankful to have found such a perfect curriculum fit for our family right off the bat!
