He was head-hunted by one of the largest institutions to do research for them and I'm certain he did a FANTASTIC job. This was good for him.
He was less good at teaching his subject... to me anyway. This was NOT good for me.
Teaching Chemistry to my kids up to now can be compared to how an indicator works... off and on; you get the picture! The funny thing is that both my kids LOVE chemistry! I don't hate it, but am less confident with teaching it.... until now (drum roll please....)
Let me introduce you to Christian Kids Explore (CKE) Science from Bright Ideas Press (Very apt name and also publisher of Mystery of History books).
I was very excited when I was given the opportunity to review the Christian Kids Explore (CKE) CHEMISTRY (2nd edition) as part of The Old Schoolhouse Review Crew. Bright Ideas Press very kindly sent me the full downloadable Chemistry Curriculum aimed at Grades 4-8. In return for this generosity (and the ability to teach Chemistry more confidently) I provide the following review. I did not receive any other compensation.
Price for Christian Kids Explore products:
Chemistry - US$39.95
Earth and Space - US$34.95
Biology - US$34.95

Taking into consideration that this is a full year curriculum and of high quality, the price tag for this is very reasonable.
