Product Details

Course Description: Empirical Science 1: Earth Science. Within the context of the fascinating study of land forms, minerals, and planetary phenomena, many timely and important topics are covered including conservation of natural resources, climate change, pollution, environmental justice, and geologic history. As with the previous course, effort is made to connect the students native wonder and curiosity with the scientist's respect for reality and zeal for truth. Numerous opportunities will be found to impart terminology and practices that will prepare students for higher level courses in the sequence, without overburdening the students with a bulk of soon forgotten facts.

This course uses Novare's Earth Science book. From the publisher's description of the book:

Earth Science is designed to draw students into close engagement with the subject matter and provide a solid education while fostering a sense of wonder and responsibility for God’s amazing world. Written for middle school-aged students, this book includes all the popular characteristics of Novare textbooks: smaller profile; vibrant, original, and relevant graphics; lucid conversational prose, and an approach that connects students with real-world science as stewards of God’s creation.

And of course, Novare’s guiding principles of Mastery, Integration, and Kingdom perspective are woven throughout the text. Mastery learning methods are present in the way key concepts, definitions, and skills are repeated. Students rehearse and reencounter prior concepts as they learn new content with a view toward more thorough retention. We also integrate relevant subjects where possible such as mathematics, history, language skills, measurement and more. This both enhances the reading and demonstrates the connections that exist between all subjects. Novare’s Kingdom Perspective is evident in the attribution of the marvels of creation to God’s creative power. Author Kevin Nelstead regularly draws the reader to appreciate the intricacy and excellence of God’s works, tying in scripture without becoming heavy-handed.

"I purchased Alpha Year last summer for my first grader, and we have so thoroughly enjoyed the program. My 2 and a half year old son even loves it!  He loves to recite the poetry and the history. What really astonished me, however, was his ability to apply the information he learned from the songs. I was talking to my husband about our history lesson, and I mentioned 'the king of Persia' and he shouted, 'that's King Cyrus!' " Camille in California
