    Red face Science and Social Studies curriculum?

    Hi folks,
    My kids are 8 and 9 years age and they are doing T4L Science and Social Studies curriculum so is T4L enough for these subjects each year?Any experiences?(note that I consider Ontario curriculum)?
    Thanx..............

    We are using a US history spine in addition to T4L. We are using literature tied to our spine. We also do the history from Classical Conversations. Classical Conversations also has science memory work and does a science experiment each week.

    HTH-

    My son is a total science nut. I, on the other hand, HATE science. I subscribe to Supercharged Science for him. He can watch the videos and do the experiments without driving me nuts. I think for the average kid the science with T4L is great. But my little science nut wants more, More, MORE.

    Oh, Kathi, Supercharged Science looks so fun! Do y'all use the monthly $37 thing?

    We are right now. My son loves it so much. But they do have free classes periodically and they offer some material free on their website.

    Thanx for your replies.I have scottforesman science books so that if I follow t4l science I don't need to go for science textbooks materials and only t4l science is enough for each grade.

    You might find that some things are geared more toward Americans. But you could just skip those activities if they were too confusing to your kids. You might also want to add some Canadian history and things like constitution when they are a bit older. Otherwise they should be fine.

    We love Supercharged Science too. My daughter makes me shopping lists every week hoping I will remember to get all her science experiment materials. I was in big trouble one week for forgetting the grapes!

    I use the T4L Social Studies and supplement with more Geography.

    My son hasn't figured out the shopping list thing yet. He just expects me to have what he needs to do the experiments.
