In this class, students will study various aspects of physical, life and earth sciences including earthquakes and volcanoes, weather and erosion, natural resources, cells and organisms, animal and plant classification, matter and energy, electricity and magnetism, the solar system, stars and constellations, plant and animal reproduction, heredity, the nervous system and the immune system. Each topic is discussed within a Biblical worldview. Students will develop critical thinking skills through the application of scientific knowledge in experiments, demonstrations, small group activities, discussions, lab manual worksheets and special projects. The last project of the year will be an in-class Science Fair.
