Category Description for Science Shepherd Introductory Science:

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 subscription (sold by Science Shepherd). There are two different workbooks for this curriculum. W

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 subscription (sold by Science Shepherd).  There are two different workbooks for this curriculum. Workbook A is for 6 to 8 year olds and Workbook B for 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. Workbook B wraps up each week with a review, usually a crossword. Topics include creation, earth science, life science and physical science. 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. 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

watched their "sample video" online and read reviews, decided it would be a good fit for our family. However, we have rural internet, so streaming the videos (from their site for half the price) wasn't going to work for us. This is the next best thing (dvd's) and I figure we can resell them for part of the cost at the end of next year

Great content. Presentation could be stronger.
This resource might be just what your family is looking for. I purchased this with a second grader in mind. The content is great, but the presentation could be improved upon. The speaker throughout the videos could enunciate more clearly. His voice doesn’t “carry” so-to-speak. Additionally, he is not particularly engaging. Maybe, if my boy were older or had a different learning style, I would’ve found the material more suitable.

Like it so far
the dvd lessons are short....interesting....and age appropriate. I am happy with this and glad I bought the DVD’s (we live rural and our internet is slow...so these are a great option). We have done Apologia in the past (liked it but it is more time consuming and completely parent led). I watch the dvd lesson with my kids And they are able to complete the written assignment independently.

Loved IT!
My girls didn't want any science. The day it arrived one of my girls had an emotional breakdown when she saw the size of the book. Then we had her look at the first few questions. She realized she already knew the answer. Then she watched the first video (we assured her it would only be around 5 min a day). That day both my girls finished several lessons and the next several days I couldn't get them to do any other school work. They are both hooked and LOVE it. Science is no longer a chore.
