  • 1 Year Science
  • 1/2 Credit
  • 7th-9th Grade

Features: Each suggested weekly homeschool 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 needed 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. Simply adapt the days to your school schedule. As the student completes each assignment, he/she should put an “X” in the box.

Course Description

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 Bibles’ world view (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, all about 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.
