New Leaf has put together an elementary earth science study using the books Big Book of Earth & Sky, Bugs, and The Ecology Book. The Teacher Guide includes a weekly lesson schedule, student worksheets, quizzes & test, and answer keys. Lessons will typically take 30-45 minutes and are done 3 days per week for a one-year science course. Students will learn about soil, the sea, sky, earth's crust, caves, clouds, insects, and the relationship between living organisms written through the lens of a Christian worldview. ~ Donna
Amazing scientific exploration of plants, animals, insects, and their relationships with one another in the natural world!
Big Book of Earth & Sky: Designed by the creative team that developed the innovative and award-winning Big Book of History, the Big Book of Earth and Sky unfolds as a 15-foot chart. It is removable so it can be viewed either panel-by-panel or hung on the wall as a full-length display. Let your child take an exciting, visual journey from Earth's core to the edge of the outer atmosphere! Explore the elements that make up the soil, the sea, and the sky. Examine detailed charts and graphs about the earth's crust, caves, and clouds. Scan facts and figures on weather, mountains, and more, based on the best-selling Wonders of Creation series!
Bugs: The amazing whirligig beetle has two divided eyes, and these "four" eyes can see above and below the water at the same time! Children will discover God's purpose for creating insects, and the corruption caused by sin. Includes a variety of perforated insect cards with images and details about these diverse, amazing creatures. Discover gigantic beetles, leaf-mimicking bugs disguised so well they fool each other, and butterfly wings that only reflect one color " none of these by accident!
The Ecology Book: Study the relationship between living organisms and our place in God's wondrous creation! Learn important words and concepts from different habitats around the world to mutual symbiosis as a product of the relational character of God. Designed with a multi-age level format especially for homeschool educational programs. Examine influential Scientists and their work, more fully understand practical aspects of stewardship, and investigate ecological connections in creation!
Items in this section tend to be instructional frameworks, or unit studies with a "core" teaching resource supplemented with additional text and/or activity resources.
Master Books has such incredible science resources, but families choosing to use these books have historically either devised their own teacher material or used the publishers' free study guide if one was available. No more! They have now published Parent Lesson Planners (or "PLPs") for many of their resources including: Investigate the Possibilities Science, John Hudson Tiner's Exploring the History Of... series, Wonders of Creation series, and other stand-alone
