I am so excited to share my review of Fascinating Education and their Fascinating Biology Program! I want to say what a blessing it was to be asked to review this product! I had never gotten the chance to review for them before, so I was excited to see what the program was all about!
So what is Fascinating Education-Biology?
Well, it is an online Biology class that is created by Sheldon Margulies, a neurologist, and a graduate of both medical and law school. I thought that information was exciting! All the lessons are presented in a powerpoint format, and they average about 45 minutes long for each one. Each lesson is broken up into sections that help you to know where are at. I was very impressed with the wide range of topics that were covered in this program! Oh! In case you were wondering if this course would cover as a high school credit, Fascinating Education says that it does! So what all is covered?
According to Fascinating Education even though this course is designed for High School, many Middle School ages children have used this program with success! So when I saw this, I knew it would be a perfect fit for my oldest! Science is his favorite subject, AND he is very advanced in his knowledge of the subject. He honestly keeps me on my toes in that area, so I was looking for something that was a bit more of a challenge for him.
So how did we use it?
We added this to our regular homeschool day. The first couple of lessons we did we only watched about half the videos each time. Although it was said it would work with kids in Middle school, I just wanted to take it slow and ease into it. He loved it so much that doing an entire video in one day was not a big deal at all.
I feel that to give you a fair review that I must mention the video quality. I am SUPER picky about that, and it is a major turn off if I am using a video, and the quality is horrid! Well, never fear! Fascinating Education’s video quality is EXCELLENT! There is absolutely nothing low quality about their product; they really do have a top-notch product available! One of the things that I loved about this program too is it doesn’t require ME, the teacher to do anything! I can sit with Bookworm if I want, OR I can just let him watch it all on his own. That was such a welcome relief because let’s face it, moms, sometimes it is nice just to sit back and let someone else teach for a second! During the lecture, Dr. Marguiles does ask questions to keep the students engaged.
