Science Shepherd Introductory Science is a complete science course suitable for students ages 6-11. Topics covered include creation, geology, biology, astronomy, oceanography, meteorology and more! Our video course includes 12-month access to daily 2-5 minute video lessons (including activities), which can be viewed on your own time schedule. The course is divided into 35 weeks, but can be easily adjusted to fit your schedule.

In addition to our video course, we offer workbooks to reinforce concepts taught in the video lessons. Choose between Level A or Level B. Level A is for approximately ages 6-8, and Level B is for approximately ages 9-11. Level B contains all of the same material as Level A, plus additional content for older students. However, these ages are flexible, and only guidelines! Please choose whatever you feel is best for your individual student!

The Science Shepherd Introductory Science Workbook reinforces concepts taught in the Science Shepherd Introductory Science Video Course. Choose between Level A or Level B. Level A is for approximately ages 6-8, and Level B is for approximately ages 9-11. Level B contains all of the same material as Level A, plus additional content for older students.

(This is not a stand-alone workbook. It is integrated into the Introductory Science Video Course and is used daily during and after each day's lesson is viewed.)

This uncomplicated elementary course offers a Christian perspective and incorporates video lessons, which are available on-demand at the publisher's website or in DVD. Students watch the video lessons, then answer the questions found in the workbook (short answer, multiple choice, matching), work a written puzzle (word search, matching, labeling, crossword), do an activity (cut & paste, drawing/coloring, hands-on, or maybe video). Students will watch the video activity and there are instructions to follow along and do the same activity/experiment. Activities use common household items and use easily accessible items. The workbooks aren't reproducible, and all scripture quotations are from the English Standard Version (ESV). The workbooks have no textual content, so you will need the video component. There are two different workbooks for this curriculum. Workbook A (6-8 year olds) and Workbook B ( 9 to 11 year olds). Students from both age groups watch the same 2 to 5-minute video lesson daily and work in their appropriate workbook--great for a multi-age group/family. Questions overlap between Workbooks A and B and the activities are very similar. Workbook A uses larger print and Workbook B asks a few more daily questions and wraps up each week with a review, usually a crossword. Topics include creation, earth science, life science and physical science. There are 35 weekly lessons and each lesson is divided into 5 days; however, week 35 has only 2 days of lessons in Workbook B and only 1 lesson in Workbook A. A separate Answer Key-lists of answers with no explanation-is available for each workbook.

This course will work best with your visual/auditory learner. With no text, students will need to remember what they heard or saw in the video lesson. They may need to go back and watch the lesson again. Each video lesson is a gentleman sitting at a desk (like a news anchor) talking about the concept of that day's lesson. Pictures and illustrations show up behind or next to him as he speaks. Vocabulary words are flashed on the screen in front of him and some of the graphics are then enlarged to fill the screen as he talks about them. You can purchase the on-demand video lessons from the publisher (a 15-month subscription) or the DVD option is a set of 8 dvds containing the same lessons. Sample video lessons are available on Scienceshepherd.com, along with a supply list for the activities. There is very little parent prep, and this course provides a nice alternative for the visual learner. ~ Donna

My 2nd grader loved this and after 3 days I had to cut her off because she wouldn't do anything else. I love that it teaches with a Christian World View. The video lessons make my life easy and all my kids can watch and learn something. I also love that I can use this for different grade levels at the same time.
