This product is a set consisting of the textbook plus the helps & hints book containing everything the parent/teacher needs to know for the subject.
This set consists of:
- A textbook (303 pages)
- A help and hints book (68 pages)
Because the course covers science as it was developed, it discusses a wide range of topics including:
- Human Physiology
- Cell Biology
- Light waves
- Sound waves
- Conservation laws
Students learn about the science that was being discovered at the time as well as the lives and personal beliefs of those who were discovering it. As a result, students can see how a person’s worldview affects his or her scientific conclusions.
As the students learn about these scientific concepts, they are constantly reminded of the Creator who fashioned the marvels they are studying.
Because of its unique design, the course can be used by all elementary-age students. Each lesson contains an interesting hands-on activity that helps illustrate the scientific concept that is being discussed, and it concludes with three different levels of review exercises. Students do whatever review exercise matches their specific level of understanding.
