Product Description

The biblically based "Gods Design for the Physical World" series was designed by homeschoolers for homeschoolers! Machines & Motion explores mechanical forces, simple machines, kinematics, dynamics, circular & periodic motion, and the use of machines while teaching about simple machines, such as levers and inclined planes, and the laws of motion. Designed for grades 3-8, full-color photos, diagrams, illustrations, special features and fun facts make learning about every aspect of science fun, while key concepts are continually reinforced and explored through chapter review and activities. Color-coded by age group, chapter reviews are separated for 3rd-5th grade and 6th-8th grade students to quickly find their assignments.

This easy-to-use curriculum is ideal for anyone who wants to teach earth & space science from a God-centered, creationist point of view. This is one student book of three in the "Gods Design for the Physical World" Series; each contains 35 lessons with one final project to merge all the lessons together. At the pace of 3 lessons a week (approximately 30-45 minutes each), you can cover the 3-book series (other books sold separately) within a year. 122 partially reproducible pages, softcover with glossary and index. Grades 3-8. NKJV Scripture used.

The sold-separately God's Design for the Physical World: Teacher Supplement & Student CD-ROM features an introduction, appendices, answers to all three book's questions, worksheets, quizzes, and includes the Student Supplement CD-Rom with printable student worksheets & tests.

This Third Edition features many improvements! Here are some of the updated changes made to this series:

  • Full-color lessons
  • Vocabulary lists in each lesson
  • Glossary
  • Updated content where appropriate
  • Additional pictures, illustrations, and diagrams
  • Challenge section (for grades 6-8) added in all the books

      Our homeschool science co-op (grade 3 to 6) has been using this book. I appreciate the Christian perspective, but am very disappointed at the book as a science curriculum.

      Yes, like the other reviewer Ladybee says, it introduces lots of terminologies. The problem is that it rarely explains any concept behind the terminologies sufficiently and clearly; the book jumbles up all those abstract terms together, often in a not so orderly sequence. Personally, I don't think that this is a good way to lay foundations for further higher level studies of science.

      For example, lesson 5 is about force. In less than 3 pages, the following terms are introduced: force, tension, tensile strength, buoyancy, net force, and Hooke's law. Inevitably, each concept is only touched upon very superficially.

      I was also surprised that inertia is not mentioned at all in a book about mechanical forces and machines.

      I don't know what Darcie is talking about. This curriculum is excellent preparation for high school science. It introduces the terminology that is used in higher level science classes so they will be familiar with it when they get there. It has something for every level from early elementary to challenging problems for the 8th-grader. My science-oriented 6th grader thinks these are interesting and fun and my 8th-grader that doesn't care for science says the language used makes concepts easy to understand. The lessons are short and activities are pretty easy to do.

      The idea behind this series is wonderful; unfortunately, the execution fails miserably. The revised version while tremendously better than the original is still a complete waste of money. The depth is about right for a 1st - 3rd grade level. The experiments, and that term is used very loosely with these books are usually cheesy, even to kids. The work that it would take to adapt these books to use for a child above the 3rd grade would be tremendous and the end result would be that you maybe used the table of contents as an outline. Even though the depth is appropriate for around the 1st - 3rd grade level the interest and fun really isnt there. While these books are written from a Christian perspective even that isnt done as well as it could or should be. Please dont waste your money these. For children in 4th - 8th grade there is a wonderful series that includes Exploring the World of Physics, Exploring the World of Biology, and others. These are wonderful, interesting, factual, Christian science books. Bob Jones and Apologetics are also excellent choices for all grade levels.
