Anyone used this? I was looking for some social studies and science curriculum for us to use for 1st grade and stumbled upon this. We are starting out trying Rod&Staff but they don't offer Science or Social Studies. Any reviews of this curriculum? Or suggestions for super affordable science/social studies curriculum for K and 1st grade?
Thanks! =)

We tried it out during one of the free periods and didn't care for it. It is nothing that I could see being able to substitute for a whole year's worth of curriculum. As a supplement it would be fine.

I'm not a fan of T4L, personally. It's just not meaty enough at all. I know people online and in person who use it, but not very many.

At the first grade level, you can make up your own stuff for free. Here are some links:


Science With Me - Science Website for Kids
Free K-8 Educational Videos (both science & ss)
Welcome to Pearson (free textbooks ... and while I'm at it, here's the LA textbooks Scott Foresman Reading: Teacher Resources)
Have Fun Teaching
School House Rock Resources
Free Science Software
Sheppard Software: Fun free online learning games and activities for kids.

Social Studies

Raising Refounders!
Community Helpers Theme Unit (EdHelper isn't entirely free, but it has a lot of good stuff.)
School House Rock Resources (also not free, but great)
Ben's Guide: Grades K-2
CSEC - 9-1-1 for Kids
Social Studies Freeware

This might be helpful, too. A lot of people follow it to make up their entire curriculum through high school for free.
