God’s Design for Chemistry & Ecology curriculum is ideal for Grades 3–8
Explore acids, bases and salts, and have fun with food chemistry in the kitchen! Children will study the molecules, matter, and ecosystems that make up our world and learn about the tools of science, the scientific method and the periodic table of elements.
God’s Design for Chemistry & Ecology includes all three of these student textbooks and optional teacher guides
Atoms & Molecules
Learn about the periodic table, the structures of atoms and molecules, and the different ways atoms bond. You will also learn about chemical reactions, biochemistry, and explore many applications of chemistry today including medicine, farming, fireworks, and rocket fuel. Fun hands-on activities include making goop, homemade perfume, and testing for acids and bases.
In this book you will learn how to measure matter, to identify solids, liquids, and gases, and how to classify matter. Have fun as you and your child learn to use the scientific method to explore solutions and mixtures. And best of all you get to do chemistry in the kitchen as you study about the chemicals that make up your food, bake bread, and even make homemade ice cream!
Take your children on a journey to discover grasslands and forests, aquatic and extreme ecosystems, animal behaviors, and even valuable lessons on conservation. At the end, sum up everything studied with exciting hands-on final projects fitting for all ages!
About God’s Design Curriculum:
Elementary and middle schoolers will love the exciting, easy-to-understand, and easily taught lessons in the God’s Design textbooks by Debbie and Richard Lawrence. All twelve books in the God’s Design series are very comprehensive, richly illustrated, and cover material that is often left out of other curricula. You’ll love the flexibility of this popular series, which is designed to be used with students ranging from first through eighth grade … all at the same time!
In this revised and expanded homeschool curriculum, each full-color textbook provides 35 easy-to-teach lessons that take a fun, hands-on approach kids love. Using ordinary household items for experiments and activities, God’s Design approaches all topics from a biblical worldview, showing how science supports the Genesis account of creation.
Best of all, God’s Design textbooks help you teach science from a biblical, creationist perspective, emphasizing God’s handiwork in the world around us. Using the God’s Design curriculum fwill help strengthen your student’s faith by showing how science consistently supports the Bible’s written record. Students will learn to think critically and logically examine arguments presented by all sides in the creation/evolution debate.
As homeschool parents who are also trained electrical engineers, Debbie and Richard Lawrence have designed each lesson with ease and excellence in mind. Each lesson begins with a “read-aloud” section that covers the basic material and is followed by a fun hands-on activity that involves your child and reinforces what you just read. Each lesson ends with review and application questions. In addition to the lessons (35 per text), God’s Design books contain special feature articles that examine the lives of scientists throughout history who have contributed to the subject. Other articles contain fun facts. Finally, each book has a unit project that ties all of the lessons together and reinforces what the student has learned. Good science couldn’t be more fun!
