Noeo Science: Biology 1 (Full Kit - Full Kit - Grades 1-3)

$193.94 Regular price $215.49
SKU: PAKG-NOEOB1

Biology 1 is a Level 1 Noeo package, containing all the experiment kits, schedules, books, and worksheets you need for one complete year of homeschool science in the 1st - 3rd Grade (ages 5-8). Take a look at a helpful flyer here and a sample of the instructor's guide to learn more about our award-winning Noeo courses. 

Designed especially for teaching science in Christian homes, Noeo Science's variety-filled structure is best described as a balance between the classical method and the Charlotte Mason approach. In contrast with a single textbook approach, we think that living books, hands on experiments, lab notebooks, and other activities will encourage more interest in science, particularly with younger students. All of these books and experiments have been carefully selected by a team of Christians (including homeschooling parents and curriculum experts) to guide children into discovery of the complexity, order, and wonder of God's design.

Bio 1 is recommended for First Grade (or you can swap with any of the other Noeo Science Level 1 courses). If you have multiple children, you can have them all do the same course -- just pick the one that matches your children's abilities and interests best!

What People Are Saying:

"For years I’ve advocated avoiding traditional science textbooks and, instead, choosing fewer topics to cover in more detail using real books and experiments. Obviously, many homeschoolers agree with me since publishers are increasingly putting together courses that fit this description. I think Noeo Science has done one of the best jobs yet!" -Cathy Duffy, Top Picks

"If you are looking for a science curriculum which presents the material in an easy-to-use format, is fun for both parent and student and comes to your home with EVERYTHING in one box, then you should definitely take a look at Noeo Homeschool Science! I know that I'm also considering buying the Chemistry II kit for future use!" -Kris Price (and kids!), Assistant to the Publishers, The Old Schoolhouse Magazine

"We have been using NOEO Science curriculum for two years now and have LOVED it! They have 3 levels to cover 1-3rd, 4-6th, and 7-9th grades. It is great for families with kids in different grades because they can use one level to teach the siblings together... I would say this homeschool science curriculum is affordable because of the way that 1 level and course can be used for multiple students at one time and also saved and reused later for other kids. You also have the option of just buying the Teacher Guide and finding the needed books at the library or bought used somewhere else. They are currently working on expanding their curriculum to older students." -a homeschooling mom

"Our Family LOVES your course. Wow! How refreshing was your physics II curriculum. Our boys enjoy science, great books, & discovering knowledge/principles on their own. Your design uniquely fits our family. We have 5 children and finding homeschooling materials that are not text/worksheet intensive that also works for our large family has been challenging......Thank you for a SUPER program." -Denise

"Noeo Science is really a “pick up and go” type curriculum, which I absolutely love about it. I get overwhelmed and burnt out easily if I have to do much preparation or pre-planning before teaching my kids a subject. I prefer to learn right along with them, and Noeo makes it super easy for me to do that." -a homeschooling mom

"Just letting you know that all the science curriculum arrived last week, and we're two days into it, and loving it! The materials look outstanding, and the teacher's guide is laid out so simply. It is going to make science "do-able" for us again, because it's not overwhelming, but at the same time it seems very thorough. I'm excited about learning chemistry with my kids, as I was very intimidated by that subject when I was in high school. We had so much fun doing the reading and experiments in both the biology and chemistry, yesterday and today. I'm sure the excitement will wear off, but that's the good part - if and when it does, it will still get done, because it doesn't seem overwhelming. We have four children, ages 3, 5, 9, and 11, and the three older ones are loving it. (The youngest is napping during the time we do science). Anyway, I just thought I'd drop a line, and let you know we are very pleased with it - all my friends are standing by, waiting to see what I think, so I'm sure you'll be getting more business in the future. Thanks again!" -Lorna

"Noeo Science is a rare jewel for Charlotte Mason homeschoolers. Miss Mason felt that nature study was adequate science instruction for elementary children. But for eclectic homeschoolers who desire a more structured science curriculum in addition to nature study, Noeo fits the bill... I found it a wonderful curriculum and am totally satisfied with the purchase. The books are colorful and engaging, the type that you don’t want to sell once the study is over. There is a definite structure, but it’s not so stifling that you can’t go off on tangents of your own." -The Curriculum Choice blog

"This excellent program is a great Charlotte-Mason-style science curriculum. The program does not use a textbook, but rather a collection of wonderful living science books along with the Young Scientist Club experiment kits. Lessons are short and include oral, written, or drawn narrations. It is very flexible and can be done inexpensively since most of the books are readily available through the library... With living books, short lessons, narrations, and integrated experiments, no program better fits a Charlotte Mason style science education. Our family highly recommends it." -a homeschooling mom

"I just received my Physics II kit and am extremely pleased with it. Everything arrived in perfect order. My son was very excited when he saw all the books and especially the kits. He wanted to start working on it immediately, even though it was 8:00 at night! Thank you so much for putting all this together and making my life easier while still being able to teach my son the joys of hands-on science." -Pam

"We received the package and got right into it! Thank you so much! The kids got the books out and started reading immediately. My daughter even called her homeschooled best friend in Texas and read to her out of one of the books. I am very impressed with the whole kit from the choice of experiments to the books it includes. The weekly schedule looks great-no lengthy prep work to decide how much to cover-it's all there. What a answer to my prayers!" -Tina

"I just wanted to let you know that we are about 9 weeks into the Chemistry I curriculum. I am using it for my first grader and third grader. I really, really like it! The books are great, the manual is very easy to use, the kids are interested in the subject and experiments, and it lends itself to all kinds of tweaking as far as making it more or less difficult. Even as written, it seems like just the right amount of work for all involved. I am glad to have found you, and I'm happy to support a family run local company! I recommend you to all my homeschooling friends now, because science seems to be the hardest curriculum to come by. Yours is excellent, and exactly what I was looking for. Thank you so much! Next year, we'll do Physics I, and we're all looking forward to it." -Amy

"Thanks for a wonderful science program! My 2nd and 4th graders are loving Biology II. It is very age-appropriate for the 4th grader, and is easy to scale down for the 2nd grader. We love the wonderful content, amazing book choices, and ease of use. Now science is our favorite subject!!!" -Kat
