Answers in Genesis God's Design for the Physical World: 3 Student Manuals Set

The biblically based "Gods Design for the Physical World" series was designed by homeschoolers for homeschoolers! This three-book set includes "Heat & Energy", "Inventions & Technology" and "Machines & Motion". Designed for grades 3-8, full-color photos, diagrams, illustrations, special features and fun facts make learning about every aspect of science enjoyable, while key concepts are continually reinforced and explored through chapter review and activities. Color-coded by age group, chapter reviews are separated for 3rd-5th grade and 6th-8th grade students.

This set features all three student books in the "Gods Design for the Physical World" Series; each contains 35 lessons with one final project to merge all the lessons together. At the pace of 3 lessons a week (approximately 30-45 minutes each), you can cover this 3-book series within a year. Books feature partially reproducible pages, softcover with glossary and index. Grades 1-8. NKJV Scripture used.

The sold-separately God's Design for the Physical World: Teacher Supplement & Student CD-ROM features an introduction, appendices, answers to all book questions, worksheets, quizzes, and includes the Student Supplement CD-Rom with printable student worksheets & tests.

    When I saw this I was excited to find a physical science curriculum for 3rd - 8th grades. It sounded perfect for my 4th and 6th graders. However, upon receiving and reading through the first book I realized that this material was way over their heads. When I read the first section to them they were totally lost. It is written to at least a 7th or 8th grade level or above and assumes a lot of pre-knowledge of certain topics. Concepts are not explained adequately for younger kids. I was very disappointed and would not recommend this for elementary kids at all!
