Lessons in Adventures in Creation & Adventures in the Physical World feature engaging lesson narrative, hands-on activities, and fun worksheets!
In the suggested lesson schedule (included with each book), you'll complete lessons 3 days a week and they'll follow a weekly pattern of:
Day 1: Learn about the topic
Day 2: Explore the topic through hands-on activities
Day 3: Share what you learned this week with others
Through each level, your student will learn that science is an amazing tool God has given us to explore the world He created, and learn more about Him. Through their studies, students will learn how to ask questions, test their ideas, and share what they've learned about science and God with others.
Each level also features a foundational verse that ties into the topics explored in that level, as well as additional memory verses and spiritual application throughout the lessons.
In Adventures in Creation, students will learn Psalm 111:2-4 as they discover the wondrous works of God in His creation "Great are the works of the Lord, they are pondered by all who delight in them. Glorious and majestic are his deeds and his righteousness endures forever. He has caused his wonders to be remembered; the Lord is gracious and compassionate.
In Adventures in the Physical World, students will explore the physical sciences in light of Jeremiah 51:15 as they encounter God's wisdom and understanding in creation, "He [God] made the earth by his power; he founded the world by his wisdom and stretched out the heavens by his understanding."
Each week features a hands-on activity or investigation for the topic your student is learning about. Activities are designed to utilize items you most likely already have on hand -- or are easy and inexpensive to purchase if you need to. A materials list makes planning a breeze! Each lesson also shows the materials you'll need for the week as a helpful reminder.
Example materials include:
- a flashlight
- 1-liter soda bottle
