AO Science!

Announcements/AO Science!
Ambleside Online proudly announces that we at AO are creating our own course of science instruction that is closer to Charlotte Mason's principles in the upper years as a replacement to previous suggestions to use a textbook such as Apologia. The overall plan moved "Secrets of the Universe" up a year, replacing it in Year 6 with "The Mystery of the Periodic Table" and "The Elements" as preparation for chemistry topics. Users will also find an addition to year 4 as well as additional science free reads in years 6 and 7. Years 6 and 7 are posted on the AO booklists and schedules, and AO will be transitioning Years 8-12 as completed. Those who prefer to use Apologia (or another program) may still do so, and the change doesn't need to affect them at all. The switch to a more "living" style of science is an exciting work in progress. Stay tuned for further updates, information on implementation, etc. As always, those with children pursuing STEM fields will need to ensure upper level course requirements for college admission are met.
