The Stargazer’s Guide to the Night Sky by astrophysicist Dr. Jason Lisle is the foundation for this full year of study. The focus of the course is on practical star gazing and understanding the patterns of God’s brilliant creation in the skies above. Combined with the Parent Lesson Plan, you will have a detailed calendar for each week of study, reproducible worksheets, quizzes and tests, and answers keys to help grade all assignments.
This is a text book with a workbook . Reading and worksheets. If that is the type of work you child enjoys, then this is a great resource.
The schedule provided stretches the curriculum out for a full year, with work assigned every-other day. We will be doing work every day and finishing in a semester. After all, the publisher recommends only 1/2 credit for the course. Why stretch it out for an entire year? I will be using it for my 12 year old in 9th grade. It is straightforward and will not be too difficult for him.
We will also be supplementing with Khan astronomy videos, stargazing and night viewing, and a week-long space camp. The book and workbook wasn't varied enough for our homeschool style. But, since the publisher does recommend it for a half credit, you would not HAVE to supplement.
