Elementary Science Eagle School

Roots and Wings

A Hands-on Study of Plants and Winged Animals!

Join us for a fascinating adventure through God’s wonderful world, using award-winning materials to delight and inspire your elementary-age student! Throughout this study, students will become true scientists as they learn about the fascinating world that God has created.

Class time will be devoted to experiments, activities, and introduction of topics. Homework will include reading, notebooking, and varied reinforcing activities.

During the first half of the year we will explore the plants of the earth, growing some of our own. Students will study the nature of botany, the process of classifying plants, and delve into the diverse processes and systems found in a wide variety of plant life. Students will also take turns caring for and feeding our very own carnivorous bug-eating plants!

During the second half of the year our study will take flight as we discover many of the winged creatures that make their homes in the vegetative habitats we learned about previously. Students will study birds, bats and insects, opening their eyes to the many different species that live in our midst. To conclude our year-long adventure into God’s wonderful world, students will participate in growing their own butterflies from larva, through metamorphosis, and finally adult release!
