Course Description: Exploring science is fun! This hands-on science course uses Science in the Beginning by Dr. Jay L. Wile to introduce a wide variety of scientific topics to elementary students of all ages. Because each lesson is built around an activity or experiment, it is engaging for all K-6 students. Students will have a hands-on lab each week. Introducing scientific concepts in the context of history, the days of creation are used as a structure through which a wide variety of scientific topics are introduced, including; light, energy conservation, air & water, botany, the solar system, zoology, and some aspects of human anatomy and physiology.
The text for this class does not need to be purchased. The class is intended to be an exciting, no-pressure learning experience; therefore, it has no homework and no required curriculum. Lab worksheets will go home weekly, but are not required to be completed or returned to me. The worksheets are intended for parents to keep for records, if desired. This class is the same topics covered as Lab Science 1-3, but goes more in-depth with the older students. We occasionally cover more labs since this class is faster paced.
