Class Description:

I will emphasize the scientific method, good lab procedures, and organizational skills.

Science 5 helps the student develop a biblical worldview as it relates to science concepts. The course focuses on minerals and rocks, fossils, matter and heat, sound and light, weather, biomes, ecosystems, and the respiratory and circulatory systems. Throughout the course, the student will have opportunities to develop his science process skills as he participates in hands-on activities and projects. The student will also learn how to view science from a biblical perspective through the worldview-shaping lesson from Answers in Genesis that is included with each chapter.

In class, we will do approximately half lecture/discussion and half experiments, investigations, and hands-on activities.

Homework:Out of class will be mostly reading the chapters and assigned exercises in the workbook, plus occasionally a small project to do at home.
Evaluation:Grades are made up of class participation, daily work, homework, binder organization, extra credit activities, and chapter quizzes. A "Progress Report" will also be sent home each semester as well as an end of the year cumulative grade.
