PREREQUISITE: Prealgebra or Saxon Math 8/7
Taught from a Biblical foundation, this course trains students to enjoy God’s great Earth while equipping them to stand against evolutionism. It covers four major areas: Earth Science Basics, Flood Geology, Limnology (Freshwater Ecosytems) and Oceanography, and Astronomy and Meteorology.
Video Lectures Do The Teaching for You
Set up on a 32 week schedule, students complete two lectures, two worksheets, 20 definitions, and one lab each week. Every 8 weeks there is a quarterly review, which can be used as an exam for high school students. The video lectures and labs average 20 minutes each. While there are no required reading assignments, a list of supplemental resources is provided.
Video Labs Spark Interest
The weekly video labs teach students everything from how to use Google Earth to how to build and fly a model rocket. Many lab activities include experiments that teach the student to use the scientific method. A hands-on lab kit is available but is not required.
Middle School or High School Course
Typically recommended for 7th or 8th grade, this course can be modified for use as a high school course by administering the quarterly reviews as exams and adding quarterly reports on a related topic.
