The sixth grade science curriculum focuses on using scientific method to conduct experiments. Students will become proficient in distinguishing fact and theory, in addition to understanding that God is the creator of all things. They will see God glorified in nature by studying the complexities of His creation. Students will integrate information learned from the text with hands-on activities, experiments, and lab dissections. Units of study include the following: plentiful plants, observing invertebrates, our fascinating earth, God’s great universe, exploring space, matter and chemistry, and health.
This course is designed to be an introduction to the sciences. This course covers such topics as the scientific method, simple machines, geology, archaeology, paleontology and the human anatomy. Students will participate in experiments and becoming familiar with scientific apparatus as they learn the history of science and how man has played a role in it.
This course takes the world of physical science and teaches the student about it on a conceptual approach. Students will be introduced to the sciences of physics, chemistry, earth science, and astronomy and be better able to understand how the world works through critical thinking exercises, hands-on experiments, review questions and quantitative word problems. In this course, students will learn of Newton’s Laws of Motion, momentum, energy, fluid mechanics, as well as, the elements of chemistry and chemical reactions and then journey beyond Earth, studying the solar system.
