About the Young Explorer Series:
Young Explorer, Jeannie Fulbright's elementary science program is an in-depth science curriculum with gorgeous, full-color pictures and captivating, God-exalting text. It sparkles in comparison to the mainstream, dry-bones science program, and it utilizes what we believe is the most sensible method of teaching science, the immersion approach.
With their yearly superficial overviews, other science programs quickly become tedious as children encounter the repetitiveness of topic matters. The Young Explorer, science immersion program will allow your family to enjoy the depth and riches that genuine science can give. Most home-taught children who enjoy science are taught with a science immersion program. This program utilizes a combination of the Charlotte Mason and classical methods. You can rely on each Young Explorer book to acknowledge the evidence of Creation, have easy-to-follow self-contained lessons, include hands-on activities, and support the National Standards of Science.
Recommended for ages six through twelve, but written with a fourth-grader in mind, you may find that your older children will enjoy doing the coursework independently. At the same time, younger, less confident readers will prefer parental involvement. We encourage you to let your child choose the topic to study that captures your student's interest. Your student can use the Young Explorer titles in any order since each book's content stands alone.
Because of the concept levels, the publisher suggests that Earth Science, Human Anatomy & Physiology, and Chemistry & Physics are better suited for upper elementary grades. However, younger students can certainly follow along and learn well if older siblings have progressed into these last three books. The Junior Notebooking Journals , for grades K-2, will allow them to absorb the concepts at their level.
