"Chubby Avolotl Froggamander"
As you can see, the list of covered topics is quite long!
Overall, I REALLY like this science book! Surfing the Net: Science is packed with so much due to the assignments and research, you could really use this as a stand alone science curriculum!
Does The Critical Thinking Co. Surfing the Net: Science Pass My 4 Ingredient Test?
1.) Customization: Is it easily adaptable? Can we customize it to fit “us?” Can we modify or set our own schedule? Can we take breaks, jump ahead, or flat out skip?
There is no set schedule, and since this is a physical workbook, you have the freedom to move at your own pace. I would suggest following through with each subtopic.
2.) Value: Is it long lasting? Will it cover multiple grade ranges? Are you locked in to one specific grade level? Are there hidden fees?
It is a great value. The book is not a little, thin workbook, but rather it is a thick, and jam packed book. It will most definitely cover multiple grades with ease since the pages are reproducible. There are no hidden fees. The websites included are free, and child safe. When it comes to the internet, I always advocate safety. You can easily obtain a free internet safety for your children. There are a number of them available, so you can choose the best one for your family.
3.) Attention span: Is it boring? Is it engaging? Is it varied enough for ADHD? Does it last too long?
It is NOT boring, and it is very engaging. Mr. B really enjoys the variety, and the lessons are not very long. The way the subtopics are arranged, you can easily take breaks and pick up where you left off.
4.) Does it tie into other things we already have.
I can see how this could tie into things you may already have, but you don't really NEED to use anything else with it. If you have science kids/experiments, you can easily tie those in with no problem, but due to the nature of the links provided they aren't a necessity.
