This wraps up our Earth Science/Astronomy science year. We started out following Elemental Science’s program, but ended up essentially ditching it part way through. I won’t use them for chemistry – I’ve already bought R.E.A.L Science Odyssey from Pandia Press. But before we start chemistry, I want to take a science break and focus on some other subjects that got pushed aside this year – logic and geography.
It took me a long time to figure out how to organize this last bit, and I still don’t think I like it. I’m sure I’ll make adjustments when I do it with the next two. The topics we’re covering are:
The Space Race
Living in Space
*Bean read Living in Space and Astronauts out loud to me.
