Description: This class will help your child have fun learning about God’s creation. It will be a wonderful introduction to the world of science for your young student. We will incorporate our textbook and journal with a very practical, hands-on learning approach. From the microscopic to the massive, your student will wonder at God’s designs in the amazing aquatic animals He formed, when He filled the earth’s waters with animals great and small. Each week there will be a laboratory/learning experience that will engage your student. There will be brief homework assignments and a few introductory quizzes that will allow them to practice some basic study skills.  The class has been designed and set up for 2nd graders.  However, highly advanced 1st graders who can read and write at a 2nd grade level may apply for this class.  Of note, this is a one-year curriculum and we will not rotate to a different curriculum next year.
