Answers in Genesis God's Design for Chemistry & Ecology: Three Student Manuals & Three Teacher's Guides Supplement Set & CD

The biblically based "Gods Design for Chemistry & Ecology" series was designed by homeschoolers for homeschoolers! This six-book set includes "Properties of Atoms & Molecules", "Properties of Ecosystem" and "Properties of Matter", and three teacher's supplements, one for each book. 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 easy-to-use curriculum is ideal for anyone who wants to teach science from a young-earth, creationist point of view. This set includes all three student books in the "Gods Design for the Chemistry & Ecology" 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 3-8. NKJV Scripture used.

The three included God's Design for Chemistry & Ecology: Teacher Supplements feature an introduction and answer-key for the book's questions, as well as a Student Supplement CD-ROM with printable student worksheets & tests.

I was a die hard Apologia fan. We have completed 5 of the 6 elementary level books. I was considering Apologia's anatomy book for my daughter's fifth grade science, but really felt like I needed to explore something else first and "save" it. I am very glad I did! My fifth grader has walked away with a solid chemistry background. (as has my friend who used this with us with her 6th grader and 3rd grade children) In Matter she learned the difference between density and weight, volume and mass, solution and suspension, and much more. Cooking experiments were a big hit and really solidified the concepts. (don't panic, some of them were optional!!) In Atoms she learned about protons, nutrons and electrons, the periodic table (we know what all the numbers mean!) the difference between and atom and a molecule (more cooking!) and, yes much more. Finally, the ecostystems took a great look at God's world, how ecosystems are set up (NO cooking!!) and work together. Can't speak highly enough of this program. I later looked at their other books, and though I would stick with Apologia for land animals, I would switch to this one for botany in a heart beat!

This science curriculum is great! It's wonderfully easy to follow for the parent/teacher with the lessons plans and the corresponding worksheets and quizzes and it's very interesting for the child as well. I LOVE the multi-grade approach because my daughter rises to the challenge of some of the older student information. I am not science-minded and think the experiements are very easy to complete! I also love the Christian focus to the curriculum as well!

We love this curriculum. It is just right for us. We have used other programs in the past that were simply too much. Too much to memorize, too many projects, too deep, and very dry. We have found this program gives us enough information to learn a concept, with just enough "work" to reinforce what we've learned.
