INVESTIGATE THE POSSIBILITIES: ELEMENTARY SCIENCE CURRICULUM
Investigate the wonderful world God has made with science that is both exciting and educationally outstanding in the comprehensive series, "Investigate the Possibilities"! These remarkable full-color books are filled with experiments and hands-on activities. The main textbook can be combined with the student journal and teacher's guide for a complete educational set. An activity-focused science curriculum guaranteed to engage your student!

The overall goal for each workbook is to include three components: good science, creation apologetics, and Bible references. This goal underlines the rationale for the design of the workbooks. Science is a great area to teach, because children have a natural curiosity about the world. They want to know why and how things work, what things are made of, and where they came from. The trick is to tap into their curiosity so they want to find answers.


Many elementary-level science lessons begin with definitions and scientific explanations, followed by an activity. A more effective method is to reverse this order and begin with an activity whenever possible. The lessons found in these workbooks begin with an investigation, followed by scientific explanations and opportunities to apply the knowledge to other situations.

In addition to the investigations, there are sections on creation apologetics, written mostly in narrative forms; connections to Bible references; on your own challenges; pause and think questions; projects and contests; and historical stories about scientists and engineers. These sections encourage students to think more critically, to put scientific ideas into perspective, to learn more about how science works, to gain some expertise in a few areas, and to become more grounded in their faith.

It is not expected that students will do everything suggested in the workbooks. The variety provides students with choices, both in selection of topics and in learning styles. Some students prefer hands-on activities and building things, while others prefer such things as writing, speaking, drama, or artistic expressions. Once some foundational ideas are in place, having choices is a highly motivated incentive for further learning.

Every effort has been made to provide a resource for good science that is accurate and engaging to young people. Most of the investigations were selected from lessons that have been tested and used in our Discovery classrooms.

Careful consideration was given to the National Science Education Standards. BUY HERE

Book Reviews

I’m very pleased to have discovered a chemistry book that doesn’t put God aside to teach the children.
The experiments look very fun to do.
I am particularly looking forward to do the one in lesson 2 which requires diapers.

I strongly recommend this book to every homeschooler who are teaching 3rd to 6th grades. You won’t be disappointed for sure...

The Authors  
web1Tom Derosa left seminary and the church thinking he was throwing away his faith, but in reality he had only found a new religion: evolution. In 1978, however, Tom accepted Jesus Christ as Lord of his life. Soon after he studied biblical creation at Coral Ridge Presbyterian Church, he came to the conclusion that a lack of knowledge of the biblical account of creation is greatly responsible for many barriers keeping people from Christ. His commitment to breaking down those barriers, and to filling believers with knowledge that will allow them to do the same, is what led Tom to form Creation Studies Institute in 1988. Today he is the organization’s president.

 
   
web1Dr. Carolyn Reeves and her husband make their home in Oxford, Mississippi where they are active members of North Oxford Baptist Church. Carolyn retired after a 30-year career as a science teacher, finished a doctoral degree in science education, and began a new venture as a writer and an educational consultant. The Reeves have three children, three in-law children and nine grandchildren.
