Curriculum Overview

Open-ended and flexible program for almost every learning style. Blossom and Root encourages hands-on learning. Overall it’s an excellent program that we can take with us on our excursions on hikes outdoors projects.

Easy to adapt for different ages and needs.

Andrew’s Feedback: “Some of my favorite projects were: tectonic plates made from graham crackers and whipped cream, jello earthquake, play-doh Earth layers, plant cells made out of natural ingredients in the garden, microscopic observations using a pocket microscope and other projects.”

Blossom and Root – Science pairs very well with RightStart Math.

Pros:

> Little to no preparation required
> Options for different styles of learning
> Very hands-on
> Excellent supplemental book and short movie selection
> Very budget-friendly
> You don’t have to use the levels in order and work with children in different grades

Cons:

> Digital download – no returns (reimbursement)

> The Blossom and Root website shop is disorganized, it can be difficult to find the specific subject
