Elemental Science or Ellen McHenry for 7th and 8th grader?
Planning for next yr and still conflicted about which of these two to order. I'll be combining Science with my 7th and 8th grader and we will either do Elemental Science -Chemistry, Logic stage or Ellen McHenry - The Elements then Carbon Chemistry following it.
I am concerned that the Ellen McHenry material will not last all year. I hear great things about it tho.
I like how Elemental Science has a two day a week schedule already planned out for me, as that is how I plan to teach Science next year.
I also plan to take short breaks from chemistyr and learn a little about circuitry using Snap Circuits and supplementing with some SuperCharged Science.com lessons.
Otherwise, both look very solid and not too expensive so either is in the running.
