Online Science Curriculum – Science4US Review

Our family had a wonderful time exploring Science4Us over the past month.  The short video lessons, cross-subject games and humor were wonderful at grabbing and keeping the children’s attention. Science4Us is full of hands-on activities and projects as well.

Geared for K5 – 2nd grade, the lessons are categorized into four groups; Physical Science, Inquiry Science, Life Science, and Earth/Space.

Pros:
The program was easy for me, the teacher/parent, to use.  I simply set up each child’s assignment from the management screen and when they logged on what they needed to do was right there in front of them. 

The lessons were fun and engaging for both our 5 yr old and 8 yr old. I was surprised at how excited they both were to have their “science time” on the computer. While one child was doing the lesson, the other would hang out over their sibling’s shoulder watching.

Both of our children learned a ton!  Not just about science, but about language and math as well! The Science4Us program crosses subjects and is wonderfully laid out for multiple age levels.

The cost for individual pricing is only $7.95 per month, per child.  Compared to other online programs this is a BARGAIN!

Cons:
I honestly can’t think of any cons.  This is rare for me, because generally there are cons to most everything.  If I come up with one over the next week or two I’ll be sure to add it here.  😉

Our family thoroughly enjoyed this program and I would highly recommend Science4Us to anyone with younger elementary aged children.

Thank you Science4Us!
