    Default 6th grade Science

    Hello! I am new at homeschooling and I picked science, math, English and history for my child. I am confused on what the mandatory science class is for the 6th grade. There were 4 to pick from.... is it no wrong pick???

    Hello to you, too! Nothing is mandatory. Time4Learning isn't a school. It's a homeschool curriculum, so the parent is the teacher of record and decides what courses to use. So nothing is mandatory.

    Each of the middle school science courses is designed to last a traditional school year . . . except for The Nature of Science, which is designed as a supplement to any other science course. It will last about a term if done every day. If done twice a week, that course will last a traditional school year.

    You can choose any of the middle school science courses, in any order. In a traditional school setting, once a student reaches middle school they are usually given some choice of what courses they take. For example, their school might require two years of science, but the student can choose from six science courses to fulfill that requirement. That's the idea here.

    Oh, yes . . . just because it's designed to last a traditional school year doesn't mean your student can't work more quickly and get it done sooner . . . or work more slowly and take two years. It's entirely up to the parent/teacher.
