Bright Ideas in Science CurriculumWhile searching for a science curriculum to continue to build upon the scientific knowledge base our child already has acquired I discovered the "Christian Kids Explore" science series by Bright Ideas Press. "Christian Kids Explore Biology" is a science curriculum which follows the teachings of "intelligent design" with the influence of the teachings of Charlotte Mason and Classical Education. The curriculum is divided into 35 lessons covering the topics of Biology Basics, Plants in God's World, Birds of the Earth, Mammals in the Wild, The Human Factor, Reptiles All Around, Insects High and Low, and Water Creatures. The lessons are divided into teaching time, checking it out, hands on time, quick quiz, memory work, vocabulary,coloring pages and books. The curriculum contains notes for the teacher on "how to use this book" along with an appendices including reproducible forms/maps, memorization lists, Scripture memory, ABC Animal Book, coloring pages, recipes/supplemental activities, answer key and book/resource list. We are planning to follow this edition with the remaining books in the series on the topics of earth and space, chemistry and physics.Written by Kathy Alphs on Sat 15 Mar 2014 9:03:55 PM GMT
