Product Description

Give your students a thoroughly Christian introduction to the study of living things with Christian Kids Explore Biology. Conversational, accessible lessons will have kids eagerly waiting to hear more about the wondrous world that surrounds them. Lessons focus on biological classification, plant life, bird structure, types of mammals in the wild, the human body, five senses, human reproduction, and more.

Units and lessons follow a consistent format. Units begin with a short introduction that provides vocabulary, and materials needed; a coloring page and a unit "wrap-up" assessment are also included.

Individual lessons include a "Teaching Time" section and a "Hands-On Time" section. The "teaching time" section includes a conversational lesson to read, after which students complete a "daily reading sheet." Students will also review lessons, make flashcards, list vocabulary words in their science notebook, and read any supplemental reading chosen. The "hands-on" time features fun learning opportunities and a "Checking It Out" science experiments form to complete.

Students will maintain a science notebook where they can keep track of daily reading sheets, "Checking it Out" lab forms, and other work.

Units include:

  • "Biology Basics"
  • Plants in God's World
  • Birds of the Earth
  • Mammals in the Wild
  • The Human Factor
  • Reptiles All Around
  • Insects High and Low
  • Water Creatures

    This book features 35 lessons, each designed to take approximately one week. If taught twice per week (reading during one science period, activities during the other) lessons will take approximately 60-90 minutes each day. One-year curriculum. Grades 3-6, though content may be scaled for younger students and for those looking for more work. Answer key provided; line-listed. Extensive book and resource list with appropriate grade levels also included.

    291 indexed pages, softcover. Reproducible consumable workbook (reproduction allowed for families, co-ops, and classrooms). Scripture from the NKJV.

Author/Artist Review

Author: Stephanie Redmond
Located in: Montgomery AL
Submitted: November 26, 2003

    Tell us a little about yourself.  I have been married for over 20 years to an Air Force pilot. I have 3 children, ages 11 to 16. I've been homeschooling for about 5 years. My hobbies seem to be rather limited at this stage of my life, but nonetheless include singing, writing another book in the series, cooking and decorating. I love taking a blah room and making it warm and inviting. Hokey, I know, but true!

    What was your motivation behind this project?  To begin with, it was simply producing things for my own children. I was making them worksheets to use with another (secular) book. I was encouraged to publish them, but found that I couldn't, in good conscience, encourage others to use the secular books I had used due to the whole evolution assumption. Thus, though I NEVER expected it, I found my self actually writing lessons. I now fully and wholeheartedly believe God's purpose in me doing this book was much more about exalting Him as Creator than teaching science.

    What do you hope folks will gain from this project?  A love of teaching science. A confidence in God's ability to manage their homeschool. More time! Mostly, though, encouragement in teaching their children how to be discerning in their studies, building a Christ honoring worldview.

    Who are your influences, sources of inspiration or favorite authors / artists?  Obviously, Christ and The Bible. Everything we do and study should be filtered through God's Word. In this particular project, Dr. Jay Wile was a huge inspiration. By that I mean, by way of a seminar he convinced me that it was possible to successfully teach science in the homeschool environment. He also showed me that science could be fun, a truly novel idea to me at the time! This was several years ago now, and time has proven he was right. On a personal note, I enjoy reading books that encourage me as I strive to live according to the standards laid out in The Bible. I read and study works authored by Kay Arthur and Beth Moore. Musically, I love Travis Cottrell and the Brooklyn Tabernacle Choir. My current favorite song is "What Wondrous Love is This" by Travis Cottrell.

    Anything else you'd like readers / listeners to know:  I am not a scientist or expert! I endeavored to be accurate in my work and had experts review my work to keep it sound for your children. This book is geared to help you keep your children interested in science and to help you manage your time, which I know is always in short supply for moms and dads. Homeschooling, for me, has absolutely been one of the most rewarding endeavors of my life. I'd like any parent reading this to be encouraged. Though it is hard, it is worth it!
