Christian Kids Explore is homeschool science curriculum by @BrightIdeasTeam. Fun for the children but easy for the Mom. Enter to win at #MommyTimeParty 5/14-5/24

My children love science and I can honestly say that it is the easiest subjects to teach my visual, kinesthetic learners. The only problem is… a lot of science curriculum takes a tone of preparation and I just don’t have a lot of time. I bet you understand EXACTLY what I am talking about.

Fun science curriculum for kids

If you are looking for a hands-on science curriculum that will keep your children engaged, I encourage you to try Christian Kids Explore by Bright Ideas Press. We are currently going through Earth & Space and the children are loving it. I honestly think anything learning style would benefit from this science curriculum since it is adaptable to auditory learners (reading the introductory material), visual learners (coloring pages and illustrations), kinesthetic learners (hands-on activities), and more.

Easy for the busy homeschool parent

The best part about Christian Kids Explore is that it works perfectly in my home.

  • I am a busy business owner who works from home. Christian Kids Explore gives me lists of exactly what I need for each lesson and they are not materials that are difficult to find. As a matter of fact, I have almost everything already here.
  • I have children ages 9 and under that I want to be able to have actively involved in the same study. Christian Kids Explore has adaptations for younger and older students so everyone can study the same topic but apply it through age-appropriate experiments.
  • I do not have time to search for additional resources. Christian Kids Explore has a full set of appendices and if I don’t want to struggle with making the copies from the book, I can simply print the reproducible images from the resource download.

There is nothing complicated about Christian Kids Explore. You can just open the text and go!

    I noticed that each book in the Christian Kids Explore Science series covers one year of science if utilized twice a week. I also noticed that the Chemistry and Physics books have second editions. I wonder when the other books will be updated. Thank you for hosting this giveaway. I was eyeing the Biology book and could definitely use it for science next year. We’ll this summer since we homeschool year round.

  6. Deana says

    I have heard great things about their Mystery of History programs. I like that it is taught from a Christian perspective.

      I was so excited I forgot to mention that Ive heard great things about the history but the science looks exciting also!

  9. StephJem says

    I noticed that the CKE Earth & Space reproducibles download is on sale for $7.95. This is going to be handy as we do this study this year, so I don’t have to photocopy out of our book.

  10. Judith Martinez says

    I really want the wondermaps but I was noticing the illuminations curriculum. It looks quite interesting.

  11. says

    I am definitely planning to use CKE next year.
    probably starting at the beginning and going through the whole series.
    I noticed on the BIP site that the CKE-creation science is not available yet.
    Wondering when that will be.. ?

    I homeschool our grandson. He will be in 3rd grade next fall. I’d love to be able to use this curriculum. Thanks for the chance! God BLess
