K/1 Science

Students will focus on three separate units. In the Earth Science unit students will observe, measure, and communicate weather data to see patterns in weather and climate. In the Physical Science unit students will investigate light and sound. In the Life Science unit students will investigate the characteristics and basic needs of plants and animals. We will incorporate basic kindergarten and first grade writing and reading standards. This will be an interactive, hands on approach to Science.

Earth Science

In this course, students will find that Earth Science is also a battle of worldviews. Students will be introduced to the secular theories of where everything they see came from. Students’ Christian worldviews will be shaped and strengthened as they learn about tectonic processes, landforms and earth materials, fossils, the oceans and oceanography, rivers and lakes, the atmosphere, weather and storms, climate and environmentalism, the solar system, the universe and cosmology, and space science. It is important that students read the material before class each week. Experiments will be done both in class and at home.
