The full-color, 36-lesson, student workbook is designed to develop critical thinking skills; each week, students begin with a hands-on activity demonstrating a key science concept, which is followed by discussion, journaling & comprehension questions, summary, and related scriptural object lesson. Each hands-on activity has step-by-step directions and is accompanied by illustrations for each step.
The teacher's guide contains an overview of the course, as well as lesson-notes that surround reduced student pages. Instruction includes noting general categories; specific topic focus; objective, overview, additional comments, options for alternative procedures, teacher-to-teacher notes, direct instruction with some scripting, field trip & guest speaker ideas, answers, and other important teaching information.
Life Science topics include to explore basic needs of plants and animals, the structure and function of plant parts and the structure and function of animal coverings To explore the larva stage of a moth’s life cycle To explore the pupa stage of a moth’s life cycle To explore the adult stage of a moth’s life cycle To explore how colorization and shape help survival and how creatures interact with their environment, explore how pollutants impact environments.
Earth Science topics include how “natural” and “manufactured” differ, explore basic characteristics of rocks, explore how “mold fossils” were created, explore relationships between solar system objects, explore how solar and lunar eclipses occur, how color reflects or absorbs sunlight, how Earth’s rotation causes day and night, how the Moon’s movement relates to months, how Earth’s movement relates to seasons.
Physical Science topics include to explore Earth’s three most common states of matter, explore how matter can change states, how bonds between atoms hold things together, how water molecules create surface tension, explore mixing two colors to make a third color, explore how density affects matter and how sound is created by vibration and how changing vibration changes sound, explore how density affects the speed of sound, explore the concept of action/reaction, how forces relate to flight and how the direction of a force can be changed, explore how light can be bent by a lens, compare and contrast refraction and reflection, explore the relationship between friction and heat, explore how atoms relate to static electricity, explore basic properties of magnets and magnetism and practical applications of magnetism.
Material Kits contain essential supplies for the entire school year. But hands-on activities by themselves are not enough. To truly master a concept, students must have "minds-on" experiences as well! This means actively engaging the material through a variety of activities such as discussion, problem solving, and journaling.
