Bright Ideas In Science Curriculum Apr 12, 2009
While searching for a science curriculum to continue to build upon the scientific knowledge base our child has already acquired I discovered "Christian Kids Explore Biology" by Bright Ideas Press. "Christian Kids Explore Biology" is a science curriculum which follows the teachings of "intelligent design" with the influence of the educational philosophies of Charlotte Mason and Classical Education. The curriculum is divided into 35 lessons covering the topics of Biology Basics, Plants in God's World, Birds of the Earth, Mammals in the Wild, The Human Factor, Reptiles All Around, Insects High and Low, and Water Creatures. The lessons are divided into teaching time, checking it out, hands on time, quick quiz, memory work, vocabulary, coloring pages and "living books" to read. The curriculum contains notes for the teacher on "how to use this book" along with appendices including reproducible forms/maps, memorization lists, Scripture memory,ABC Animal Book, coloring pages, recipes/supplemental activities, answer key and book/resource list. We are planning to follow this edition with the remaining books in the series on the topics of "earth and space, chemistry and physics" before beginning Dr. Jay Wile's "Apologia Science."
Homeschool Friendly Mar 12, 2009
We used this book as the backbone of our Life Science curriculum for our homeschool. It is unabashedly Christian. It opens with a Bible Study on creation and has memory verses for each unit. It does a good job of introducing the major branches of the plant and animal kingdom in simple language. Not generally being a "test" kind of mom, I found the unit tests to be great ways of verbally reviewing before charging ahead. My only complaint is that some of the units were young. Older kids (5th grade+) would need this heavily supplemented to be challenging enough to hold their interest.
