Sonlight continues to update and improve their award winning curriculum
In 2009 the Sonlight Company made extensive updates their science curriculum! They updated the  science books and more. Their are more hands-on activities, new Instructor's Guide Notes,  Activity Sheets that are updated, and an update look to their user friendly schedules. 

I'm glad to see that Sonlight also offers improvement in linking readings to relevant science experiments. I think that a firm connection between these two methods of learning is crucial for maximum retention in the minds of my children.

Sonlight's  new articles which are  included in every Introduction to K- 6 science answers pertinent questions about their approach to the age of the earth and evolution. Parents need to know exactly where a science curriculum is coming from. Sonlight  teaches Creation by God, but mentions a variety of perspectives from this belief.

Examples of some Sonlight Science updates;

  • 5-Day program of Science K adds new, colorful books such as the Eggs and Chicks, Tadpoles and Frogs, Caterpillars and Butterflies, , and Under the Sea.
