Review of Science4Us

Science4us
Disclosure: I was given a free 30 day trial of Science4Us in exchange for an honest review.

Science4Us is an engaging, elementary science curriculum that teaches science using a fun, interactive approach. If you have your own blog and would like to review Science4Us, check out their homeschool review program.
 
I was thrilled to be able to review this amazing science website.  The cool thing is, it is not only about science.  It also integrates math and literacy skills!  It is for children in grades Kindergarten through 2nd grade, but there is also printable material you can download for not only these grade levels, but also 3rd-5th grade.  It also includes automated reporting of what lessons your child or student has completed with access to over 1,000 online and offline activities.
 
These activities can include printable worksheets and lesson plans, but there are also explanatory videos for parents and/or teachers.  The teacher and student each get their own portal.  The student portal includes 13 different segments, including Explain, Evaluate, and Explore where the child interactively learns through video segments and games.  It is a fun way for them to learn vocabulary about four different sciences such as Physical, Life, Inquiry, and Earth/Space science.
 
 
In the parent or teacher section, there are tabs for checking on student assignments, notebooks, lesson plans, and teaching strategies.  There are also videos to help the teacher or parent teach on a specific lesson.  It is very easy to navigate and use the curriculum, and the customer service is outstanding.  If there is a problem or you need help with something, someone gets back to you very quickly. 
 
 
I would highly recommend this curriculum to any educator, including teachers and homeschool parents.  The child is so busy having fun, that they don't even realize they are learning.  One of my favorite parts was the Glossary, where the vocabulary taught is alphabetically organized with the definition, pronunciation, and what type of speech it is.  My sons favorite parts were the silly, lovable characters and the sounds and expressions they made.  They also loved all the pictures of the animals in the lessons, and getting to learn more about them.
 
 
I am so thankful to Science4Us for allowing my family and I to review this wonderful curriculum.
If you are a homeschool blogger, don't forget to check out their homeschool review program or check out their free app you can download for iPad or Chromebook.  Schools can also sign up for a free trial here.  Thanks for stopping by to read my review!
 
Blessings,
 
Kelly

  3. We have a great science curriculum that we use but I'm looking for something else to help supplement, something to help teach the basics. I'm going to look into this one, thanks for sharing with us at the Learning Kid link-up. :)
