We were so excited to get our Nancy Larson Science 1 box in the mail! We have been eagerly anticipating this special package for a few weeks and the kids were ready to dive in the second I opened the door. Nancy Larson Science has complete kits for K-Grade 4 that includes all your supplies and visual aids, student materials, and a complete scripted teachers guide. Let’s take a look at what we got!

We received the following books:
- What do Scientists Do?
- Peterson First Guide to Trees
- Trees to Paper
- Familiar Insects and Spiders
- Your Insides
- The Seasons of Arnold’s Apple Tree
The teachers manual includes the lessons and answer keyes and comes in a scripted format, so you LITERALLY just have to read from the book. Although some of you more creative mama’s may be thinking that seems boring, you could definitely present the lesson however you wanted! But for me, the idea of no preparation, just open and read, is very appealing.
Why Nancy Larson?
The program is designed to be taught only 2 days a week, this leaves other days of the week open if you want to alternate your socials and science programs, or maybe you want to teach every day and do it in one semester instead of all year long. However you choose to schedule it, I love the ease of use and we are very excited to start our journey with this great science curriculum!
