Elementary Science (4th - 5th grade) (Advanced 3rd graders can register)
This exciting course will focus on Zoology during the fall semester making every day an adventure by taking your child on a safari, jungles, deserts, forests, farms and even their own backyards to explore examine and enjoy the enchanting creatures God designed to inhabit the terrain. Students will discover amazing animals from primates to parasites, kangaroos to caimans, and turtles to the terrifying T-Rex. This course will also focus on Chemistry and Physics during the spring semester by introducing your child to the properties of matter and the basic building blocks of life. Students will explore God's design for the universe as they investigate states of matter, energy and its many forms, magnetism and simple machines. Each week, we will be performing hands-on labs along with notebooking to reinforce what has been learned in class. With a Christian perspective, this class is aimed to build a love of science and nature for each individual student. In order to reach our goal, this class will have a 3-year rotation of books to better prepare all our students for our middle school program. Students are encouraged to take notes in class and ask questions both during class time and during the week via phone, email, or by designated personal sessions. There will be homework each week to both introduce new material that will be discussed in class the following week and also to review what was learned in class that week. Homework will be graded for both completion and accuracy. Students will also be graded on tests, labs, and potential projects. Related field trips are being considered.
