Can I use this package with both of my children?

Yes, you can! If your children are within three years of age, they can share the same BookShark Science package. Please note that you will need an extra set of Kindergarten Science Student Activity Sheets for each additional student (one set is included with the Instructor's Guide).

Can my students share the Science Supplies Kit?

Yes! If your students are willing to work together as lab partners, they can share the resources in the Science Supplies Kit K. You may want a second kit if you prefer that each student perform every experiment, or if you have more than two scientists sharing the Science package.

The decision to homeschool our daughter, Alexa, was an easy one. Choosing a curriculum that worked well with her goals and schedule was a little more difficult.
