I use R.E.A.L. Science Odyssey as our main science curriculum right now. I hope they soon get more put out. I am already looking into other science courses just in case.
I really like this curriculum so far.
I don't if you are homeschooling religiously or secularly, but this is a secular curriculum.
If you want an old earth/evolution friendly curriculum, I wouldn't (personally) recommend Apologia (as mentioned in previous threads).
Quoting birthymom4:Quoting lucsch:
I just wanted to know if it speaks against it.
I don't mind supplementing it.
I am a Home Schooling, Vaccinating, Non spanking, Nightmare Cuddling, Dessert Giving, Bedtime Kissing, Book Reading, Stay at Home Mom. I believe in the benefit of organized after school activities and nosy, involved parents. I believe in spoiling my children. I believe that I have seen the village and I do not want it anywhere near my children. Now for the controversial stuff: we're Catholic, we're conservative, and we own guns (now there's no need to ask, lol). Aimee
Some sciences really haven't a POV in the early years (insofar as the different fields of science).
If you are looking for Christian young earth/evolution friendly sciences, I strongly recommend something Catholic (because most Catholics are Old Earth/Theistic Evolutionists and all of the curricula produced recognizes this.
If you are looking for secular, I would suggest Ellen McHenry. She doesn't touch on it (evolution) that I know, but that's because of the target age of her curricula. She's a christian, but her material is purely secular, that I've seen (and it's geared to homeschoolers - so there won't be any $2,000 lab equipment, lol).

Yes, I want an old earth/Evolution based program. Thanks :)
Here's a free curriculum that we used pretty much all through elementary school: http://www.msnucleus.org/curriculum/curriculum.html
Also used this for several years in addition to the above free currculum.Could easily cover 2 in a year : http://www.commonsensepress.com/greatscience/default.htm
