Noeo Science is a mix of Charlotte Mason and Classical styles. Real life books are used as the basis for study and discovery. The folks at Noeo have searched high and low to bring us the best, most informative and visually captivating books available. Work pages and experiment kits bring in the scientific method. All the work pages for the student are provided in an easy to copy form; either in the master handbook or from the website. There are a number of options for all ages. The youngest students have drawing pages and the older students write definitions and also draw what they have learned. There are also experiment forms to copy but they are also provided in the experiment kits. All of this can be put into a binder of the students choosing, giving them the chance to experience a scientist’s personal notebook.
Noeo Science is a creationist viewpoint curriculum that doesn’t exclude the references to evolution and the “old earth” stance that many Christians are opposed to. This gives the parent the opportunity to address the reality of non-Biblical viewpoints held by most scientists and therefore explain what the Bible teaches on these subjects. Parents just need to read ahead each week to prepare. So far, we have not run across any such references and as far as I know they are few and far between.
The kit comes with a Master Handbook for the parent outlining each days reading and activities. I have found it to be a sinch to follow, it’s so well planned out. They have the week arranged as a 4 day week but the schedule is very flexible. All the books and experiment kits can be ordered separately or in the kit shown on the website. The folks at Noeo have done a great job in providing the lowest possible price.
My children are very excited for each new lesson and the experiments have been really fun. I would have to say that my favorite thing about this curriculum is what a neat package it is. It’s so easy to order, the website is clear and interesting and all my expectations have been been met. If I had one recommendation for the Noeo folks it would be to ask them to offer some fill in the blank type pictures and quiz/puzzles for specific lessons on their website. Of course that is just the lazy mom in me that doesn’t want to look for it on the internet. I find that I enjoy learning and discovering from this curriculum just as much as my children.
This curriculum is all about discovery and I hope you will be inspired to learn more about this fantastic world the Lord has created through the exceptional job done by the Noeo Science Folks. www.noeoscience.com
