F.A.Q. for Science of Seasons Curriculum

This curriculum was designed for grades 1-4, but you can adapt it for older children by adding in additional books at their level.

Younger students may require more assistance and may need you to read the books out loud.

We strongly suggest that you view every item linked or used in this curriculum to make sure it meets with your approval.

The 14 week schedule allows for a leisurely and gentle introduction to science. It also allows you to see if literature-based learning is a fit for your child without a full-year commitment. It’s a perfect science program to jump into in the middle of the year when other things aren’t working and also makes a great summer supplement.

Make science the favorite part of your child’s homeschool day!

Guest Hollow’s Science of Seasons Curriculum uses a *spine book that is a Christian book.
*A spine book is a book that is used as a backbone of a study that students will use often.

Most of the other scheduled resources are non-religious.

If we schedule in a Christian book, we try to give you notice of such in the books and resources page.

Christians and non-Christians should preview the scheduled books and all other resources such as videos, etc. to make sure they are compatible with your beliefs, philosophies, and values.

No, you can start it at any time. You can also spread the curriculum out over the different seasons. Just jump in at any time and study the section(s) that cover the season you are in.

After purchasing a curriculum, you’ll see that the item you just bought shows that it is discounted 50% in our store. The reason you are seeing this is because we give you the opportunity to repurchase the schedule and your downloads at a substantial discount before they expire (2 years from date of purchase).

Please note: You do NOT need to repurchase your schedule in order to use the files you originally purchased and downloaded. You can use your downloaded schedule forever and can click on the links just as you can the online version of the schedule. You just won’t have access to any updates after your online access expires.

Why does access expire? Every year we go through all our curriculum schedules and update broken links and/or replace books that have gone out of print. This is a very time-intensive process that keeps our curricula up-to-date. Your repurchase helps fund this process and provides you with a schedule that has all the new additions or changes.

You need to repurchase your access BEFORE it expires in order to get the 50% discount due to the way our “membership” software works. If for some reason you miss the deadline, let us know why. We may give you a coupon code for the 50% off at our discretion. ????

*It is our intention to provide access for a period of 2 years, however, access to the online version of the curriculum schedules and additional downloads is provided as a courtesy and is not guaranteed due to potential various circumstances on our end and yours including but not limited to various computer, device, and internet configurations.
