Is learning fascinating to the students at your house? Do you want it to be? I have big dreams for learning experiences around here. I have always desired that my children be fascinated by learning and the learning process. I want them to crave opportunities to expand their horizons and to find excitement in all subjects. I enjoy learning and have always read books and looked things up, just so that I could learn. I know I inherited that love of learning from my grandfather. He was a learner and was always reading and studying so that he could learn even more. Poppa knew something about absolutely every topic. He enjoyed learning and read encyclopedias for fun. I want that same thing for my children and I am so thankful for the opportunity to try new curricula as they delve into many subjects of interest. I pray that my children inherit the same love of learning. I want the education provided at Long Leaf Academy to be fascinating. We have found a science program that fits that bill.
Fascinating Education offers science courses for both middle schoolers and high schoolers (depending on the course) in an online format. There are three courses offered and you can see the course outline AND check out a sample for each one by clicking on the following links -- Fascinating Chemistry, Fascinating Biology, and Fascinating Physics. All are designed to cover the topics found in a normal high school course. My Sophomore Eagle Scout has enjoyed reviewing the high school appropriate Fascinating Education: Chemistry course ($79 for acess for a full year) and I have been thrilled to hear him ASK to work on Chemistry each day.
I like this Chemistry class because it is different than other science classes I have taken. I like listening to the instructor and seeing all the pieces fit together. It is challenging, but the explanations are excellent and I am able to understand Chemistry and Chemical Properties. I do have to remember which lessons I have completed, but it's helping me to make mental notes about where I need to start each day.
