I've been reviewing all the different science curriculums, and I'm definitely interested in two I've found:

 - Exploring the Building Blocks of Science (book 1)

 - Purposeful Design Science (level 1)


What I want is a curriculum that covers a nice variety of the different sciences, giving a taste of each.  And since my 1st grader is a kinesthetic learner, I want it to offer LOTS of experiments or hands-on activities, instead of being mainly book-learning.  If you have a suggestion for a different curriculum that you like, please mention it!  But I'd love to hear of any experiences with these two I've listed.  Thank you so much for your input!  fingers crossed

I haven't used either of those, but my kinesthetic learner has thrived with the book 365 Science Experiments.  We use it as the lab book to go along with our textbook: McGraw-Hill Science.
