Kathy5 Stars Out Of 5Bright Ideas in Science CurriculumAugust 19, 2014KathyQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5While searching for a science curriculum which would teach scientific concepts, and integrate the Christian faith, homeschooling mother, Stephanie Redmond was encouraged by her friends to write what would become, Christian Kids Explore Biology. Due to the positive response of Christian Kids Explore Biology, Stephanie has written a second volume, Christian Kids Explore Earth and Space.
Christian Kids Explore Earth and Space contains 24 lessons and six unit reviews which cover the topic of earth and space science. The curriculum is comprised of the following components:
A Note from the Author
How to Use This Book

The curriculum also includes a Glossary, Index and Appendices: A Note from the Author, How to Use This Book, Glossary and Appendices: Reproducible Maps, Forms and Illustrations, Memorization Lists, Scripture Memory, Coloring Pages, Recipes and Supplemental Activities, How to Make a Folder book, Book and Resource List and Answer Key.
Each lesson unit introduces the topic with a unit timeline, vocabulary words, and materials needed for the unit. The lesson itself is made up of two building blocks: Teaching Time and Hands on Time. I would highly recommend purchasing the resource cd download which contains the reproducible pages in the back of the text.
Overall, we have been pleased with this curriculum as it lends itself to the Classical Education and Charlotte Mason philosophies. Scientific concepts are presented in an engaging and easy to understand manner. This allows the student to build upon their interest through research and scientific experimentation. In the fall of 2014, our child is looking forward to utilizing the next book in this series Christian Kids Explore Chemistry.
