    The scientific "war of the worldviews" began as a battle over biology. In the 1600 and 1700s the foundation of biology was laid primarily by Christians who freely used the Bible as the basis of their understanding. But all of this changed in 1859, when Charles Darwin's popular new book, Origin of Species was published. Over the past one hundred and fifty years, his evolutionary worldview has overwhelmingly become the accepted paradigm for the origins of life.

    This supplemental resource from Master Books has been written to give young people answers - from Science and from Scripture, ANSWERS that show how Science and the Bible fit together to honor the Creator. Divided into three units, a total of nineteen chapters, it teaches students science from a Biblical perspective and helps them to defend their faith. Each chapter also provides a "Building Inspection" review which includes multiple choice, fill in the blank and short answer questions. Unit One investigates biological change (Darwin vs. Design) and looks at such topics as genes and Genesis, gene pools and variation within kind, species, "change through time" vs. Darwinian change, natural selection, evolution, mutations, and much more. Unit Two covers topics such as descent vs. design, classification and missing links, life before birth, and creation, evolution and the embryo. Unit Three examines DNA and origins including biological molecules, living cells, chemical evolution, evidence of creation, DNA and reproduction, and many other topics. Black & white illustrations, answer key included. 158pgs, pb. ~ Deanne

    Instilling a love for science in my children was always a primary goal in our early days of home-schooling. One of my secret tools was always keeping a stack of interesting science reference books available for them to thumb through or to look up a quick question on their own (yes, this was pre-internet!), but I always struggled to find good quality books that did not overwhelm us with evolutionary content and would often lament to my husband, that it would sure be nice to have a Christian alternative to the informative Usborne or DK resource books. I am so excited to share that Master Books and My Father's World have heard the cries of many homeschool families and have joined together to provide quality science reference books that offer beautiful photographs and illustrations without the inundation of evolutionary teaching.

    Beginning with Genesis 1:1, this book introduces the scientific method, real science, fields of science and the reasons to study science and then dives into seven sections covering a wide range of scientific subjects. Section 1: Matters and Chemicals covers atoms, elements, molecules, solids, liquids, gases, melting and boiling, crystals, water, chemical changes, acids and bases and composites. Section 2: Energy, Motion and Machines presents energy, converting energy, the energy of motion, forces and motion, measuring force and motion, gravity, heat and cold, helpful machines, simple machines, machine power, friction and energy and matter. Section 3: Electricity and Magnetism contains electrical energy, static electricity, flowing electricity, electrical circuits, using electricity, magnetism, and magnetism to electricity, electricity to movement, movement to electricity plus more. Section 4: Light and Sound introduces sound waves, using sound, light, reflected and refracted light, using light, laser light and more. Section 5: Earth and Life presents planet earth, inside the earth, the rock cycle, volcanoes and earthquakes, atmosphere, weather and climate, mountains and valleys, rivers and lakes, coastlines, seas and oceans, life on earth and the earth in trouble. Section 6: Space and Time explores earth in space, exploring space, earth's orbit, magnetic earth, inner planets, solar wanderers, outer planets, the sun, stars and galaxies, deep space, and the universe.

    The last section provides over sixty projects covering topics in each of the previous six categories. Science projects contain a concise "you will need" list, clear step by step instructions, and colorful accompanying photographs. Each project also contains the reference page for further information and utilizes commonly found items. Glossary and index provide helpful reference material. hc. 247 pgs. ~ Deanne

    The Teacher’s Edition for each level includes an overview of the curriculum, standards and content that are met by the curriculum, a worldview statement, a suggested teaching schedule, explanation of course components, suggested instructional approach, chapter teaching suggestions, and suggested use of assessments. Step-by-step explanation for lesson preparation is a helpful tool, along with an illustrated example of scientific inquiry. The book is divided into four units (life, physical, earth/space, human body); then subdivided into chapters and lessons. Each chapter begins with “key ideas,”  a list of major ideas for that chapter, and a section on chapter preparation that includes vocabulary, an introduction to the topic, and a summation for each lesson in that chapter. A list of supplemental materials is also included in this section and shows what should be printed from the online supplemental resources.

    This teacher's edition no longer includes a Teacher Resource CD-ROM; all supplemental teacher resources now available online. A sticker on the book provides a website to the PDF files for blackline masters, computer presentations and transparency masters which you can download and save.

    Each lesson then includes the objective, materials specific to that lesson, any necessary preparation, introductory materials, and directed instruction. Small format pictures of the corresponding student pages are shown at the end of each 2-page lesson. An extension activity is included in each lesson to further reinforce learning. The last lesson of each chapter is review. A glossary lists the highlighted vocabulary words from each chapter, and they are cross-referenced with the lesson and page number where they are found.

    A cross between mini-mysteries and a detective science kit, this fun set teaches children forensic techniques while they work through two mysteries! In the first mystery, "The Case of the Mysterious Painting," young detectives will examine a painting for clues, analyze suspect data using a graph, test the pH of a water sample, measure shoeprints, extract DNA from strawberries (or other fruit), and compare DNA profile strips. In the second mystery, "The Case of the Cursed Cookies," kids learn even more techniques, including ink chromatography, testing flour and baking soda with citric acid, and examining fingerprints. Although the stories are a little cheesy and actual forensic techniques are a bit more complex, putting the experiments in the context of the story really brings the techniques to life and makes them extra exciting! Although all special supplies are included, you will need some household items to complete the activities – and a discreet adult helper to set up at least one test. – Jess

    This colorful series from Singapore Math introduces early concepts in life science, physical science, chemistry, and earth science to the very young. Each book focuses on one of these sciences, and contains 29 lessons and an answer key. Lessons are a page in length, with each topical lesson containing a short informational segment, follow-up questions or a hands-on activity. The material is presented in its simplest form, and most often the questions repeated at the end simply ask the student what was discussed at the top of the page, although in some cases, it might be helpful to have read a little more material on the subject as well. The range of subjects is pretty impressive, including animal habitats, parts of the ear and eye, seeds and how they sprout, electromagnets, conductors, circuits, mixing colors, evaporation, how sound is made, sinking or floating, seasons, solar system, Milky Way, constellations, meteors, food chains, and more. As an example of a lesson, one lesson in Book 3 features a short paragraph on the properties of some common materials, followed by a blank chart. The students must decide whether some other common materials such as wood, glass, plastic, rubber and others are hard, if they can be bent, if they last a long time, and if they are attracted to a magnet. After that activity, several common materials are listed, and the student must match these to the item or construction it can be used to make. All activities are generously illustrated with friendly, cartoon-like animals and objects, and altogether the books have a "fun," relaxed look about them, even though the concepts are fairly well-presented and a little more serious that I've seen in other early elementary science programs. Inexpensive and easy-to-use, this set could easily make up a complete science curriculum for the early grades, although you may want to supplement with a little more reading, especially with interesting related library books to broaden their horizons a little more. Each book used to be available separately, but it is now sold only as a set of four books. – Jess
