Category Description for Christian Kids Explore?:

By identifying a need in her own homeschool and filling it, homeschool mom Stephanie Redmond has constructed a user-friendly, biblically-based science program that you can easily use with multiple levels of children at once. Each volume includes lessons to read, hands-on activity instructions, unit reviews, lists of suggested supplemental resources, and more. While you will probably locate some supplemental resources, the bulk of what you need is contained in just one book which keeps things simple (no searching the house for misplaced workbooks or activity books!). Volumes are broken down into 24-35 lessons organized into units. While the number of units varies per book, you can plan on completing the course in one year (or less) if you take the author's suggestion and complete one lesson per week, dividing the lesson up into two 60-90-minute sessions - one for reading and one for activities.

The first portion of the lesson contains the instructional text which can be read aloud, or read independently by older students. Although intended to introduce and explain science concepts, the text is conversational and well-written. Lesson vocabulary definitions, related scriptures, and science facts appear in the margins, and several questions follow the reading for either discussion or a short quiz. If time and interest permit, you will probably want to supplement the lesson reading with library books or other resources. You'll appreciate the author's extensive resource lists in each book's appendix which offer ample suggestions. In Biology, the author recommends these activities for the "reading" part of the lesson: making and reviewing unit vocabulary flashcards, reviewing the main topic(s) of the previous lesson, reading the current lesson, memorizing the vocabulary for the current lesson, and spending any remaining time reading from supplemental sources.

The second half of the lesson is the activity portion. There is quite a variety to these, and they relate very well to the lesson content covered in the reading. Each activity includes an objective, a materials list, and step-by-step instructions. Occasionally, a simpler activity for younger students is included if the main activity is likely to "go over their heads." Rather than answering questions following the activity, students are usually directed to fill out the provided "Checking It Out" form, which is like a lab activity guide. They'll record the objective, hypothesis, procedure, results observed, and what they learned. Examples of activities found throughout the series are: building a terrarium (Biology), making an edible sedimentary rock (Earth & Space Science), finding household products that contain strong bases (Chemistry), calculating bicycle wheel speed (Physics), or making a fossil (Creation Science).

You'll find everything else you'll need either in the unit introduction, in the appendix, or on the resource CD (or digital download). Units begin with a list of vocabulary covered, a comprehensive materials list, and any other information you'll need to cover the unit. A multiple-choice "Unit Wrap-Up" is provided at the end of each unit for review. Appendices with reference lists, answer keys, and a glossary are included at the end of each volume. Each book also includes either a resource CD (older printings) or a digital download (newer printings) with: daily lesson plans, reproducibles (experiment forms, maps, memory lists, coloring pages, field trip journal forms and more), materials lists and a bonus literature study guide. Please see book cover images to see if a physical CD is included or if there is a digital download. ~ Jess

I love this curriculum!
I like the Creation Science book because kids not only learn about creation and faith, but learn the aspects of evolution and are able to see that creation makes much more sense. I also like that there are "in the field" studies to do as well as many observation studies. My granddaughter is enjoying the book much more than other curricula that rely on tons of reading and answering questions. She is in 6th grade.
