OK, we have given up on winging it for science! We are three weeks into our 6th grade homeschool curriculum, and my backup plan to use Real Science Odyssey has already begun!

We honestly planned to make up our own homeschool science curriculum for 6th grade, however, this just did not work for us!

Freddie clearly works best with a more formal curriculum, so we found the best secular science homeschool curriculum. Real Science Odyssey. Check out what are other 6th grade homeschool curriculum looks like.

So what is REAL Science Odyssey? Read, Explore, Absorb, Learn! (I only actually realized that it was an acronym while I was writing this post!). This is the BEST secular science homeschool curriculum out there. Keep reading to find out why we love it so much.

THERE IS CURRENTLY A SALE ON FOR 25% OFF (valid util 31st August 2021)

Real Science Odyssey really is the best secular homeschool science curriculum. Check out our review of Biology 2 #science #homeschool

Real Science Odyssey Biology 2

There are two levels either level 1 which is elementary grades, or level 2 which is middle school to high school.

We opted for Biology 2 which consists of three books (which you purchase separately, for some reason they don’t have a combined purchase?):

We could however have chosen Astronomy 2, but I think we will take that when we have finished Biology.

What I LOVE about Pandia Press is that you try before you buy!! So for any curriculum, you can literally check out a few sample pages to see if you think it will be a good fit. They also offer this for their secular history curriculum too.

Biology 2 is designed to be a year long curriculum with 32 chapters. If I am honest though as we are doing this in 6th grade I think it might take us 18 months. But that is absolutely fine, we are in no hurry!

The course is divided into seven units:

  • Organisms
  • Cells
  • Genetics
  • Anatomy & Physiology
  • Evolution
  • Ecology
  • Classification

At the end of each unit, there are end of unit exams (they are at the back of the student workbook, so they are completely optional.)

Science Equipment Needed for Biology 2

We didn’t need to buy much for this curriculum, as we already had a lot of it, but I will share with you what they recommend:

** You do not need the microscope in middle school (like we are) and you can skip these lessons. But you will NEED it if you are studying High School. We decided to buy it though.**

There are two full pages of material lists, however, I think everything else included you will have at home already. For example, oven, bowl, water, glass!!! They really have listed everything you are going to need!

Real Science Odyssey Review

There are lots of things I LOVE about Pandia Press Real Science Odyssey. The teacher guide is really detailed, which is great for me, I hated science in school!!

The student text book is really varied too, so one page might be microscope work, the next a lab report, the next a multiple choice quiz, etc. So they never get bogged down doing the same work all the time. There are lots of experiments to do as well, so it is really engaging. I honestly LOVE it.

Other benefits of Pandia Press

  • You can try before you buy
  • It’s a secular science curriculum
  • You can either buy in print copy (like we did) or you can buy the e-book
  • You can use the curriculum for both middle school and high school students, perfect if you have multiple children.

We highly recommend Real Science Odyssey, so check it out for yourself here. Please note the sale ends at the end of August, so make sure you don’t miss out! In fact we love it so much, we are going to get the History Odyssey curriculum too!
