Student Notebooks for Science in the Age of Reason
The Berean Science Notebooks are a convenient companion to the Berean texts for busy families. Each Notebook is written for a specific Berean Science title and for the student's age that will be using it.
These printed Notebooks are not required; plain paper or any ordinary notebook will suffice. However, the layout of these Berean Science Notebooks provides just the right amount of lined and unlined space for each regular lesson. Some lessons even include fill-in-the-blank sentences, diagrams, or other helpful elements. The challenge lesson pages are left blank for an added challenge.
Older Student Notebooks
Older Student Notebooks are designed for the middle category of Berean Science students. Students who use this level need strong basic writing skills; therefore, many 3rd- and 4th-grade students will find this level a good fit.
Oldest Student Notebooks
The Oldest Student Notebooks pose more challenging questions and are often a good fit for 5th- or 6th-grade learners.
What About Younger Students?
You will notice that the easiest level for Berean Science, called Younger Students, does not require a notebook. The questions at this level are aimed at about second grade and younger and can typically be answered orally.
How Do I Know Which Is the Right Level?
Not sure which level will be the best fit for your child? Each Berean Science text has sample pages available. At the end of each lesson, you can see what questions are posed to the younger, older, and oldest students and decide which level is most appropriate for your learner.
Science in the Ancient World covers the work of natural philosophers who lived from about 600 BC to the early 1500s AD.
With Science in the Ancient World, your student will;
It concentrates mainly on what these ancient scientists got right and discusses what they got wrong. Even mistakes can advance our understanding of the natural world.
Students will also discover that most of the great scientists in the last half of this period were devout Christians. They investigated science to learn more about God by studying His handiwork.
About Berean Science
Berean Science offers students an opportunity to study science through the lens of history. Berean Science teaches science chronologically using a narrative dialogue and a Christian worldview. Each volume has vast and varied science topics.
The hardcover textbooks have lots of full-color illustrations. The lesson is concise but complete, distilling down to the core of what your child needs to know.
Lesson material is often just a page or two following each activity, perfect for any child that struggles to sit and pay attention.
Fairly bursting with experiments, Berean Science's strong focus on this hands-on component makes it an ideal program for the wigglers in your household. Every lesson has an activity of some sort! 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.
Berean Science lends itself well to multi-grade homes that prefer to use just one science curriculum for the entire family. Each lesson concludes with questions or additional activities for "younger," "older," and "oldest" students. 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. We offer a lab kit if you would like a convenient, time-saving way to get nearly all of the materials you need for the experiments! This lab kit is assembled with virtually every non-household item the curriculum requires, so you won't have to search for elusive components. Berean Science is an excellent way to teach science and a welcomed addition to the Timberdoodle kits.
