Abeka Science Grade 6
Bridging elementary and Jr. High Science, Observing God’s World presents the Universe as God’s unique creation and refutes the theory of evolution. Plants, invertebrates, the earth’s structure, space, and introductory chemistry are all studied. Students are also introduced to Christians with innovative, scientific thinking. The student textbook provides textual readings, chapter comprehension and end of chapter checks, and activities. Activities vary from research to observation and hands-on experiments. If you plan to incorporate the hands-on experiments, there are some household items and lab supplies that will be needed. For example: bar magnet, aquarium, critter habitat, protozoa hatchery kit, and a microscope (400x). Space to record answers is not included, so students will need a separate notebook. Also available is the Observing God’s World Answer Key with answers for each comprehension and end of chapter question (questions are included). NEW ADD Homeschool Science and Health 6 Curriculum Lesson Plans provide detailed, day-by-day lesson plans, teaching tips, homework suggestions, games, bible memorization and other enrichment ideas for a 25-week study of Science, and 9- week study of health. Daily lessons average 30 minutes, although some children may need longer.
Additional resources include the quiz and worksheet book, test book, and their companion but separate answer keys. The quiz and worksheet book contains 25 quizzes and 22 worksheets (no answers). Answers are found in the Quiz and Worksheet Answer Key. The test book contains 8-unit tests, and 3 nine-weeks exams. Test questions vary from fill in the blank, true or false, matching/labeling and short answer questions. Answers are found in the test book answer key. The test book and the quiz and worksheet book are not reproducible, each student will need their own book.
