Intro to Astronomy Package
Set includes the following items:
Explore the wonders of the night sky in Intro to Astronomy! In this fascinating Jr High (7th-8th grade) science course, students will discover the majestic beauty of God's vast universe as they explore the awe-inspring field of astronomy.
Through intriguing text and full-color photographs and illustrations, students will learn how to observe the night sky (with or without binoculars or telescope), the best times to see specific galaxies and celestial objects, and how to determine what they are looking at during certain times of the year!
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 titles. These provide parents the framework and structure to use their resources for course credit. While the format varies a bit by PLP, most include a weekly lesson schedule (with 180 total lessons), student worksheets, quizzes, tests, and an answer key. Lesson schedules also include space to record dates and grades. For most courses, lessons will take approximately 30-45 minutes. Labs are occasionally recommended in the beginning of a PLP, but they are optional, not scheduled in. PLPs are reproducible for family or small group use (ten or less). These planners do a great job of turning their resources into a complete curriculum. Science PLPs are listed below with the resources they are designed to be used with. Packages made with the resources and PLP are also available. Please see more extensive information on our website. - Donna
