Good science, creation apologetics, and Scripture combine to teach your students about physical science. Exciting lessons begin with an experiment and are followed by explanations, on-your-own challenges, critical-thinking exercises, and suggestions for applying knowledge to other situations. Teacher's guide features objectives and tips. Student journal offers space for recording results, concept reinforcement, and skills tests. Grades 3-6. Three softcovers.
Forces & Motion Student Text, Student Journal & Teacher's Guide Kit
Designed for students from grades 3 8 (simple graphing, division, and other age appropriate math skills are required), Forces and Motion is a hands-on; activity based learning approach that teaches first through observation, and then through the application of scientific principles and concepts after they have already been observed.Three books required for Forces and Motion, a student journal, a teachers guide, and the text itself. The supplies needed are a combination of common household supplies and some youll need to purchase from a science supplier. The 20 investigations are recommended as an 18-week (or one semester) course of study with approximately 5 hours of work estimated per week.The student journal is black and white, with room for observations (graphing activities, diagrams, and tables), short answer questions, math activities, true/false questions, fill in the blanks etc.) these vary from lesson to lesson (not all of these are presented for each activity.) A separate notebook will also be required for recording answers to the longer questions in the What Did You Learn? section for each activity. Some of the questions are presented fully in the journal, others will need to be looked up in the text, such as the Dig Deeper research components.The text is full-color, and looks much like a traditional textbook with many short segments included for each investigation (lesson.) It includes the instructions for each hands-on segment, the explanation of the scientific principles, information on major scientists behind discoveries, discussion prompts, and more.The teachers guide is very straightforward and contains a small, black and white copy of each page from the text along with some helpful notes and answers to the What Did You Learn? questions presented in the text (match those in the student journal). It also provides some resources for additional biographical reading, and suggestions for some of the additional projects.
