Science in the Age of Reason Set
Your student will microwave a bar of soap, make paper from cotton balls, crush a wintergreen mint to see it spark, classify his fingerprints, and test your family for color-blindness with Science in the Age of Reason.
The fourth book in the Berean Science series, Science in the Age of Reason covers scientific developments from the early 1700s to the early 1800s. Along the way, your student will learn about scientists who based their studies and lives on the knowledge of God, as well as those who rejected a Biblical worldview. This thoroughness prepares your student to evaluate the worldviews influencing modern-day scientists and theories.
The Science in the Age of Reason Set includes the text as well as the slim helps & hints book. Helps & Hints for Science in the Age of Reason contains answers for the review exercises in the text, as well as hints to make checking, correcting, and explaining the students’ work easier. And while the author suggests that testing is unnecessary for most families, he includes tests and test solutions for families who do find it beneficial. See our optional lab kit here.
New to Timberdoodle, Berean Science offers students an opportunity to study science through the lens of history. Using a narrative dialogue and a Christian worldview, Berean Science teaches science chronologically, so there are vast and varied science topics in each volume. Fairly bursting with experiments - every lesson has some sort of activity - Berean Science’s strong focus on this hands-on component makes it an ideal program for the wigglers in your household.
The hardcover textbooks have lots of full-color illustrations and the lessons are concise but complete, distilling down to the core of what your child needs to know. Activities, all color-coded and easy to find quickly, often involve inexpensive household items, and are the gateway to the exploration of each scientific concept. Lesson material is often just a page or two following each activity, perfect for any child that struggles to sit and pay attention. And because each lesson concludes with questions or additional activities for "younger," "older," and "oldest" students, Berean Science lends itself well to multi-grade homes that prefer to use just one science curriculum for the entire family. Lessons are taught directly from the text, so parents and students share the same book.
Sprinkled throughout the text are optional "challenge" lessons that you are free to skip if time is an issue. Each book has a helpful section in the front that tells you all the materials you will need, broken down per chapter, for doing the experiments. If you would like a convenient, time-saving way to get nearly all of the materials you will need for the experiments, we now offer a lab kit! This lab kit is already assembled with virtually every non-household item the curriculum requires, so you won't have to go searching for elusive components. Berean Science is an excellent way to teach science, and a welcomed addition to the Timberdoodle kits.
