PLP: The Science of Life: Biology
Make the complicated easy by taking a building blocks approach to learning! Filled with scientific information, the material is broken down into learnable pieces so your student can grasp the details and add to his or her understanding. This approach helps students make sense of science. Fossils, dinosaurs, evolution, creation, human origin, scientific and biblical perspectives, DNA, genes, and Genesis are among the topics addressed from a biblical worldview. With this curriculum, your student will learn about science and have his or her faith developed and reinforced in the process.
Features: Each suggested weekly schedule has three easy-to-manage lessons which combine reading, worksheets, and vocabulary-building. 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 answer the questions at the end of each chapter. Tests are given at regular intervals.
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. Test grades should also be recorded in the lesson plan where indicated.
Two titles from the Laying a Creation Foundation series are combined for a full year of study to help students build their worldview on a faith that fits the scientific facts. Building Blocks in Science provides a foundation for scientific thought, while Buildings Blocks in Life Science delves deeper into biology and God’s amazing design of life. Combined with the Parent Lesson Plan, you will have a detailed calendar for each week of study, reproducible worksheets, quizzes and tests, and answers keys to help grade all assignments.
The Science of Life: Biology
This is the suggested course sequence that allows one core area of science to be studied per semester. You can change the sequence of the semesters per the needs or interests of your student; materials for each semester are independent of one another to allow flexibility.
Semester 1: Intro to Science
Have you ever wondered about human fossils, “cave men,” skin color, “ape-men,” or why missing links are still missing? Want to discover when T. Rex was small enough to fit in your hand? Or how old dinosaur fossils are — and how we know the age of these bones? Learn how the Bible’s worldview (not evolution’s) unites evidence from science and history into a solid creation foundation for understanding the origin, history, and destiny of life, including yours! In Building Blocks in Science, Gary Parker explores some of the most interesting areas of science: fossils, the errors of evolution, the evidences for creation, early man and human origins, dinosaurs, and even “races.” Learn how scientists use evidence in the present, how historians use evidence of the past, and discover the biblical world view, not evolution, that puts the two together in a credible and scientifically-sound way!
Semester 2: Life Science
Study clear biological answers for how science and Scripture fit together to honor the Creator. Have you ever wondered about such captivating topics as genetics, the roll of natural selection, embryonic development, or DNA and the magnificent origins of life? Within Building Blocks in Life Science you will discover exceptional insights and clarity to patterns of order in living things, including the promise of healing and new birth in Christ. Study numerous ways to refute the evolutionary worldview that life simply evolved by chance over millions of years. The evolutionary worldview can be found filtered through every topic at every age-level in our society. It has become the overwhelmingly accepted paradigm for the origins of life as taught in all secular institutions. This dynamic education resource helps young people not only learn science from a biblical perspective but also helps them know how to defend their faith in the process.
