For Grades K-8

Another Best Deal on the Planet!

The Homeschool Buyers Co-op is pleased to offer a Best Deal on the Planet for a one year license to ScienceFusion for Grades K-8 from Houghton Mifflin Harcourt (HMH) Homeschool.

Because Doing Science is the Best Way to Learn Science!

ScienceFusion offers online lessons, videos and virtual labs in an environment fusing print and digital experiences for Grades K-8.

With over 3,000 interactive lessons, videos, simulations, virtual labs, and animations, ScienceFusion was created for learning and teaching in a digital environment but was also designed to give students a meaningful way to interact with science.

The ScienceFusion write-in Student Edition textbook is included with each grade license and is designed around the learning needs of today's students -- from the verbal/visual format on every two-page spread to the critical thinking developed on every page.

For grades K-5, ScienceFusion homeschool kits include materials for one year of science study. In addition to traditional science topics, each elementary homeschool package includes a unit on science and technology, progressing from science skills to understanding technology to the engineering process.

For grades 6-8, ScienceFusion offers eleven modules, ten covering key life, earth, and physical science topics, plus one on science and technology careers. These modules are not designed as full-year science curriculum; three or four modules can be completed in one year. Modules are appropriate for all middle grades, so parents can choose whether to mix life, earth, and physical science topics or focus on one.

With Signature Co-op GroupBuy Savings!

ScienceFusion is available as a separate one year license for each grade for Grades K-8. All separate grade or module licenses include the ScienceFusion write-in Student Edition textbook for the specific grade selected (for one student). By purchasing as a group, we all save 30%.

It's fantastic! The kids can use it completely self guided...however...one small complaint. No shipping to Canada? I have to inconvenience friends to mail it out to me and pay that extra shipping (which is quite a bit). It's strange that any company can't manage shipping to Canada, so it's a choice they're making and therefore keeping some eager Canadians from using their product.

We love ScienceFusion. I'm very pleased with the digital component that the program offers. ScienceFusion also does a nice job of giving ideas for experiments. I am, however, a bit disappointed that there isn't an option to purchase a hard copy teacher's edition. I will use this program again in the future.
Krystal, Co-op Member
I love this program! I am using the middle school modules to provide more depth for my overeager fourth grade science buff - and it's a perfect fit. She enjoys the interactive digital lessons because she learns and retains information best when she interacts with it. The colorful workbooks and digital labs help to reinforce the concepts. The teacher side of the resource database is a bit clunky - so assigning individual lessons takes more time than it should. As a homeschooler, though, we rarely need to use this function. I supplement thes...(more)
Rebecca O'Malley, Co-op Member
I loved using ScienceFusion with my 7th grade boys this year. We were able to comfortably complete 3 modules during the year. I did have access to a microscope which was handy with the Cells & Heredity. I have to agree with most of the other comments about use. Many things are cumbersome to access and/or use such as the online teacher's edition, Lab sheets & Answer Keys, Assignment of online activities, quizzes & tests. Tech support was also difficult to understand. In addition, my username was not assigned to my state and was difficult to find...(more)

So far we really enjoy this product it is a new way to do science that is more in depth and includes experiments and videos that I haven't come across before!
Lisa H, Co-op Member
We used the module A, Cells and Heredity for my 10 yr old who is doing 5th- 6th grade work. The content is excellent, interactive videos a bit dry, but tolerable- but access is tremendously cumbersome. It is a multi step process to log on, finding the tests in the teacher section requires patience and time, assigning work is confusing... This is by far the least parent-friendly portal we have come across as homeschoolers and could really use a tune up. But; he's learning the stuff.

We don't do science every day, and it's going to take us...(more)
Kimmy, Rochester NY, Co-op Member
Having a workbook and also online virtual videos to watch and tests is a really nice combination. The workbooks are colorful which helps engage the students attention,and filled with great pictures, diagrams and information. Very informative material, that questions the comprehension of the student throughout the lessons.

I have been dissatisfied with trying to navigate the website. Additionally, you have to manually go in and assign each lesson, activity, test or video for your child. It is not as simple as clicking a button and it natura...(more)

My experience with Science Fusion has been both good and not so good. The product itself is great and it's something my family will continue to use year after year, but getting set up initially was not a great experience. If you can look past that hassle it's worth every penny!
Laura S., Co-op Member
My 6-year old and 8-year old really enjoyed the online digital lessons. My 8-year old retained a lot of information from the lessons. I loved that they could complete the lessons independently. The teacher module, however, was cumbersome. We would buy this program again.
K. Hall, Co-op Member
Science Fusion is one of the best science curriculums I have ever used. While it is a little pricey in that it is disposable and non recyclable, it provides tons of resources, clear and twaddle-free instruction, and lots of options regarding how to use the curriculum. The virtual labs are especially neat. The student interacts with the procedures and then graphs and interprets the results. EXCELLENT ACT INTRODUCTION. There are a vast number of resources for each lesson--one can use some or all. My son looks very much forward to it. It spans 6-...(more)
