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%.

Each online subscription also includes access to The Teacher Online Management Center, at thinkcentral.com, which is designed to make it easier for teachers to access program resources to plan, teach, assess, and track. Features and functions of The Teacher Online Management Center include:

My children (1rst grade and K) love the interactive online lessons and the vivid pictures in the textbook really captures their attention. It really makes teaching them easier for me. Hope this group buy will available again because I want to continue with Science Fusion for the next year. One negative issue that it was tricky to set up on the online lessons but once it was set, it is easy to use. You do have to have a fast connection for the images to load. I really like the fact that I can supplement my children's learning with technolog...(more)

For my SPECIAL NEEDS child, Science Fusion is a GREAT PROGRAM! The INTERACTIVE format keeps her ENGAGED and gives her opportunities to be INDEPENDENT (from Mom) in her educational activities. It is wonderful how the ILLUSTRATIONS of concepts COME ALIVE into MOVING DEMONSTRATIONS of content. Science Fusion is ORGANIZED WELL and EASY TO IMPLEMENT.
Stace, 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
We are using the first grade program for my K/1st graders this year, and they both enjoy it! They definitely enjoy the online component more than the workbook, but overall look forward to doing their science! We would use it again.
Amy, Co-op Member
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.
Michelle, Co-op Member
I have always been a huge fan of Pearson products and I use other subjects of them as well. I love how ScienceFusion is set up and it is very user friendly. My daughter loves it. The only negative drawback for me as a teacher is the teacher manual. I have to go online to view it and the print is very small. Even when I expand the font, to me its still not big enough. I like having the opportunity to have a book in front of me. This is not enough to stop me from buying their products. [Co-op Note: To give credit where credit is due: Sci...(more)
Liz Knowles, 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)

A+ My daughter has thoroughly enjoyed the Science Fusion Middle school modules so far. Very engaging video, informative workbook, not a lot of busy work. Will purchase more....
Theresa, 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
I have been thrilled with this science program. The magazine style textbook is perfect for my kids to read and write in. I love all the supplementary items on the computer that I can access. The virtual labs and digital lessons provide added perspective. My children LOVE doing their science thanks to this program.
