If your child is riveted by the heavens, this course is the perfect junior high science or science option. It focuses on both the weather here on earth and the atmosphere above as it introduces students to the fields of meteorology and astronomy through texts that are firmly rooted in a biblical worldview. Rather than relying on dry textbooks to convey information, the curriculum instead uses the award-winning, full-color Wonders books to teach the science within and beyond the sky! Your student will enjoy learning about forecasts, weather maps, weather fronts, the solar system, black holes, the moon, comets, and planets, as well as how to build a simple weather station and more!
Features: Each suggested weekly schedule has three easy-to-manage lessons which combine reading, worksheets, and vocabulary-building opportunities including an expanded glossary for each book. Designed to allow your student to be independent, materials in this resource are divided by section so you can remove quizzes, tests, and answer keys before beginning the coursework. As always, you are encouraged to adjust the schedule and materials as you need to in order to best work within your educational program.
Workflow: Students will read the pages in their book and then complete each section of the study guide worksheets. Tests are given at regular intervals with space to record each grade. Younger students may be given the option of taking open book tests.
Lesson Scheduling: Space is given for assignment dates. There is flexibility in scheduling. For example, the parent may opt for a M-W schedule rather than a M, W, F schedule. Each week listed has five days but due to vacations the school work week may not be M-F. Please adapt the days to your school schedule. As the student completes each assignment, he/she should put an “X” in the box.
