My soon to be ninth grader is a big reader. Instead of using a science textbook, he is going to read several different non-fiction titles to learn about Earth Science. Here is a list of all the books he’ll be reading for this class.
If you want a secular literature based homeschool program that is ready to use without tons of planning, I highly recommend Build Your Library. If you are like me, and love planning, then I recommend building your own library.
