General Science 1: Survey of Earth & Sky Teacher Guide
This unique curriculum touches on four fascinating branches of science! With studies based on 4 of the engaging, full-color Wonder series books rather than tedious textbooks, this course adds a little variety to your science program. In the course of a year, students will learn about oceans, astronomy, weather, and minerals. This general science curriculum serves as a great earth science option, the course is written from a biblical worldview perspective and emphasizes the accuracy of the Bible and the glory of God's creation.
Features: Each suggested weekly schedule has three easy-to-manage lessons which combine reading, worksheets, and vocabulary-building opportunities including an expanded glossary for each book. Designed to allow your student to be independent, materials in this resource are divided by section so you can remove quizzes, tests, and answer keys before beginning the coursework. As always, you are encouraged to adjust the schedule and materials as you need to in order to best work within your educational program.
Workflow: Students will read the pages in their book and then complete each worksheet. Students should also complete the Activities on each worksheet if possible. Tests and quizzes are given at regular intervals with space to record each grade.
Lesson Scheduling: Space is given for assignment dates. There is flexibility in scheduling. While each quarter has 45 days of assignments, they do not have to be given M-F. Some students may prefer to do more assignments each day, allowing for breaks on other days. Each week listed has five days but due to vacations the school work week may not be M-F. Please adapt the days to your school schedule. As the student completes each assignment, he/she should put an "X" in the box.
These Teacher Guides are all designed to accompany the Wonders of Creation series, transforming them into one year science courses to be used at the junior and senior high levels. Each booklet includes a weekly lesson schedule (totaling a one-year study) with a chart that also provides space for due dates and grades. Worksheets are included for each chapter in the books and are reproducible for family use. Quizzes and tests are also included along with answer keys. Packages include all resources and Teacher Guide.
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
