Exploring Creation with Earth Science
Exploring Creation with Earth Science is part of the award-winning Young Explorer Series – voted the #1 homeschool science curriculum for over 14 years in a row.
This course is for elementary grades. As with all other titles in the Young Explorer Series, Exploring Creation with Earth Science is designed to have no prerequisites. We encourage you to follow your student’s interests when choosing a Young Explorer title. There is not a particular order in which to complete the books in the series.
Encourage your young explorers to interact with their world by choosing an elementary homeschool science course that walks alongside students and talks with them as it investigates and points out the science behind everyday occurrences.
Let’s dig in the dirt, not just talk about it. What is it? How did it get made? Why is it different depending on where you dig? What will you find living in it?
Let’s realize that we don’t get deliveries from outer space so everything we need, literally everything, is given to us and made fresh with the systems created to keep life forms alive throughout time. How does the Earth replenish its resources again, and again, and again? Join us in Exploring Creation with Earth Science and find out!
Your young explorer will begin this course with an overview of our cosmic address in the observable universe and then grow in knowledge of what, in the entire universe, makes Earth special and capable of sustaining life.
An awareness of the world will develop as students interact with the Earth’s geosphere, hydrosphere, atmosphere, and biosphere. By digging deeper into the many different layers of the Earth and the cycles that renew the face of the Earth, your student will acquire not only wisdom that will endure for a lifetime but also an appreciation for our Creator.
About the Young Explorer Series:
When we decided to offer our customers a boxed curriculum, we knew that our eclectic approach to science needed a bit of fine-tuning, so we knew we needed Young Explorer, Jeannie Fulbright's elementary science program. Not only does this in-depth curriculum, with its gorgeous, full-color pictures and captivating, God-exalting text, sparkle in comparison to the mainstream, dry-bones science program, it utilizes what we believe is the most sensible method to teaching science, the immersion approach.
While other science programs, with their yearly superficial overviews, 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 being taught with a science immersion program.
Because this program utilizes a combination of the Charlotte Mason and classical methods, you can count on each Young Explorer book to acknowledge the evidence of Creation, have easy-to-follow lessons that are self-contained, include hands-on activities, and support 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 on their own, while 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.
Exploring Creation with Earth Science sample pages here (sample pages include Text & Notebooking Journal sample pages, Table of Contents, Supply List, and more).Though not required, a student journal is available separately and is the perfect complement to this textbook.
There are 14 lessons included in this one-year earth science course. A detailed lesson plan is included in the Notebooking Journal.
