    Default Science4Us: How are you liking it?

    Hi, I thought I'd check out what the reaction has been to the addition of Science4Us as more science materials at the start of this year. My questions:

    - Are your students using Science4Us?
    - Do you do both the digital and the offline activities?
    - What are your favorite or least favorite Science4Us activities?

    For those who are unaware, Time4Learning partnered with Science4Us to make all of their science educational materials available free of charge to Time4Learning primary students.

    My 3rd grader is liking the lessons, but half of the offline materials are not available.

    My daughter uses Science4Us & likes it a lot. (2nd grade)
    She only does the digital activities because we're not even sure what/where the offline activities are.
    Her favorite activity is Silly Bulls, & the only least favorite activity is dealing with the occasional technical hiccup, where Science4Us takes a few tries to load or a lesson won't let us exit the "right" way so that lesson doesn't get marked complete. The loading problem happens pretty frequently, but the exiting problem has only happened twice so far.

    I am unable to access the off-line activities. How do I access these materials?

    We've just started, but the lesson we did on butterflies was awesome. Child loved it.

    How are you supposed to access it free of charge I went to the website and it wanted me to register.

    We are brand new. My daughter is in 3rd grade. We're transitioning from traditional A Beka Book seat work & drills. She loves Science4Us more than any of the other lessons. I'm having a hard time keeping her from doing Science4Us when she's supposed to be on other subjects. I'm sorry to see it's not available for 4th grade. Any plans to expand it to higher grades? I'd love to see the social studies curriculum become as engaging. She's not a strong reader (mild dyslexia) and the requirement for so much reading is off-putting in subjects where there's a lack of video or games. I love that Silly Bulls helps her with her reading and spelling. I'd love to see them elsewhere in the curriculum. Sometimes, though, Science4Us is buggy - it gets "hung up" and we have to exit and log back in. Hope this feedback helps!

    To access Science4Us, you log in to your Time4Learning student account and click on the Science4Us icon from there. You don't access it from the Science4Us website.

    If you don't see the icon from your student's account, log in to your parent account and add Science4Us. To do that, click on that option under Make Changes to My Account at the upper right.

    Mom of six . . . current students and homeschool graduates. Enjoying using Time4Learning since 2006!

    My kids did Science4us since it was in beta, and then had paid subscriptions to it after. They love it, and the offline activities are fun too. Since my 1st grader had access to it before, it's a repeat, but he doesn't care and does it anyway. I dropped the paid subscription when TFL added it, so it's been very nice. Thank you for adding it.
