Curriculum Description (from publisher)
This user-friendly, unabashedly Christian, one-year science curriculum for elementary students includes teaching lessons, gorgeous coloring pages, hands-on time, memorization lists, review sheets, creative writing assignments, and an awesome supplemental book list! Written for 3rd through 6th graders, it can easily be scaled down for younger students, making this an excellent choice for teaching all your elementary-aged kids together. The schedule of 35 weekly lessons calls for teaching twice weekly, allowing a family time for projects, exploration of resource books, field trips, etc. The conversational style gives students the basic information they need, making this an ideal first course in life science; especially useful for those following a classical approach!
We all really liked using this book. The author includes everything you need to provide your kids with science lessons for the year (35 lessons total). Each lesson has a reading section (the lesson), memory work and vocabulary, diagrams and/or coloring page and then a hands-on activity (using household items). Also included are reproducible forms, maps, memorization lists, scripture memory verses, additional coloring pages, recipes, activities, answer key and a resource list for additional reading.
The only thing I disliked is that it is hard to make copies of the pages. I carefully pulled out all of the pages, hole punched them and stuck them in a binder. Otherwise, I absolutely love this program and plan on using the others about Earth/space and chemistry.
