I’m surprised there are not more reviews on this curriculum, since it seems to be popular in the SEA Facebook group. The curriculum is well thought out with a broad range of subjects and clear instructions. The printable game was fun, we enjoyed a couple of the recipes, and we could find YouTube videos for the science activities we didn’t have supplies for. Unfortunately, the bulk of the curriculum was not good match for our homeschool given the expensive supplies, in addition to the fact that it is heavy on handcrafts that require time and space we don’t have. Even when we chose to skip the handcrafts, it was frustrating to complete the vocabulary, since students must rely heavily on web-browsing, wading through pop-up ads and unhelpful web pages before finding the answers, (I would have preferred direct links be provided).
Who this is for: Crafty Harry Potter fans who enjoy making things with their hands, have the space/time/resources for projects and have access to fast, reliable internet for researching topics.
Who this is not for: Minimalist homeschoolers on a tight budget with limited space/time/resources for projects and/or those with slow, unreliable internet.
