    Of note, since it was recommended - Real Science 4 Kids is not secular. The author is a proponent of Intelligent Design and it comes out in the materials. Of course, you're welcome to use it, just so you know.

    It's often easily confused in Real Science Odyssey, since they have slightly similar names. RSO is completely secular.

    We are big fans of RSO. I saw that the OP bought the Chemistry - we just finished it, and it was our favorite so far.

    I have now read all the comments, and I see that decisions were made, but I'll just chime in about History Odyssey. I can see that people would think it is a lot of work - it can be if you do all the things. We've sincerely enjoyed it, though. It takes some work for me to request several books from the library from the recommended reading list, but DD enjoys reading them herself now. We listen to the SOTW audiobook (which we love), read the brief sections in the Usborne Encyclopedia, and do the maps. There are a few additional books that are assigned and include questions for the student to answer.

    Anyway, for others reading the thread, thought I would throw that in there - what I like about History Odyssey is that someone has taken the time to pull together a bunch of resources and plotted out each course in a (mostly) logical fashion. We can pick and choose the things we want to do.
