Science and History

I realized that I didn’t announce the other courses that I have just recently finished! These are listed under individual courses and will be part of the Year 3 program of study. Those links will go up this spring.

History — Geography and Cultures

Course Description: Students will travel the world learning the locations, histories and physical geography of countries, names of capitals, famous landmarks, unique expressions of culture, and facts about the world around them. Students will learn to read maps and create their own. Students will share what they are learning by creating a variety of projects including brochures, commercials, and tours. The course culminates with creating an immersive cultural experience to share with family and friends.

Reading List: L  folk tales, M  Around the World in 80 Days

Science — Earth Science

Course Description: This course in earth science will engage students with experiments and projects. Students will also learn through text, video and online interactives. Their study of the earth will include learning the rock and water cycles. They will study rocks and the make up of the earth. They will learn about the types and causes of weather as well as how to predict the weather. Students will follow and learn about the numerous types of bodies of water in our world. They will dive into the ocean and discover what’s hidden in its depths. Students will learn about the atmosphere and fly up into space.  They will study objects in space and learn the history of space exploration.

Note: As always, this course supports a literal interpretation of the Bible that the earth was created in six days. I bring this up with the students and make notes in the curriculum about it as it comes up. I also included links to Answers in Genesis and 4th Day Alliance.
