For eighth grade science, I chose Bob Jones. Throughout the time I've home schooled, I've compiled books from all kinds of publishers for all subjects. I am partial to the Christian-based ones. The reason for that is that I am all for my children learning that God created earth and all its inhabitants.

The books I've listed above can be found online (click on the picture captions). Over the years, I have bought some of my material online, at yard sales, book swaps at local home school groups, and teacher book stores. I like actually flipping through the workbooks like I did a few weeks ago at Lakeshore. I asked my daughter for input as she would be the one using them.
Well, thanks for reading this entry about what I'm using to home school my eighth grader. I hope I've given a unique idea of what could be included for teaching children in that grade.
How about you, my readers? For those of you who home school, what are you using for eighth grade? Are you satisfied with your curriculum choices? I hope you find a good balance to fit your childrens' needs.
I pray that God helps us all, whether we are home schooling or are thinking of home schooling.
