Jen5 Stars Out Of 5Easy to use and flexibleJuly 13, 2016JenQuality: 0Value: 0Meets Expectations: 0I'm really excited to start another book in the God's Design series with my children. Every unit begins with key concepts to learn. Each lesson within the unit begins with a vocabulary list and ends with engaging activities and questions which can be done orally if desired. The green "Challenge" sections dig further and often include another activity with deeper questioning for older students. For example, Ch. 10 is about Internal Combustion Engines and its challenge section includes an activity about cooling systems; Ch. 18 is about Gunpowder and its challenge section is called Improving Accuracy. Several "Special Feature" sections are sprinkled throughout the book which are often biographies or other significant topics (such as the internet or the Wright Brothers). The well laid out and colorful illustrations and diagrams both support the material and encourage the student to further reading and a Glossary is included.
The teacher's supplement begins with an outline how to teach science to children of different learning styles and suggests a threefold approach to each lesson to help students think more scientifically. It also includes answers to all questions and quizzes and a master supply list for the activities, as well as a short supply list of immediate materials required for the upcoming lesson. I really love the summary of the "Seven C's" to encourage our children to embrace and develop a biblical young earth worldview. Enjoy!
Kimber Valentine4 Stars Out Of 5We loved it!January 3, 2012Kimber ValentineMy young son and I had a wonderful time working through this book. He enjoyed all the experiments and we extended these with Dad's help to discover so much more. The series is well written and not too extensive for the younger set.
Darcie1 Stars Out Of 5June 18, 2009DarcieThe 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.
