Science Rocks!

A Hands-On Study of Chemistry and Geology

2013-2014

Grades:  5th-7th

We live on a huge treasure chest full of riches that we use every day. It’s called planet Earth.  It’s important to understand what these riches are and how they work together and impact our lives.

In this class, we will see how wonderfully God created the earth, learn more about what He created and observe how it behaves. Class time will be devoted to experiments while introducing and discussing new topics. Homework will include reading assignments, question/answer pages and optional at-home experiments.  Approximately one-third of the course will focus on Geology, two-thirds will focus on Chemistry.

Required Resources:

Usborne Science Encyclopedia & Mysteries & Marvels of Science

$25 lab fee per semester

three ring binder with dividers
