For elementary science I would look at Real Science Odyssey at Pandia Press. I've used their Life and Earth Science when my kids were younger and it was the ONLY science curriculum I liked for that age group. The author doesn't dumb it down for the kids and the labs were always great and at least for the subjects we did, there was very little you had to buy to do the experiments. They have a try before you buy policy so you download the first couple lessons free and see if you like it.
I'v been waiting anxiously for their level 2 curriculum but I'm afraid my kids are going to be college before they ever come out...sigh.

Thank you so much! I like how it can be used with the Ck-12 books. Excellent.
