    Physical Science: Students study living organisms and their responses to the environment. They also study population growth, food chains, and ecological succession. Students learn to read a weather map and study weather instruments, fronts and masses, hurricanes, tornadoes, lightning and clouds. The curriculum includes hands-on laboratory experiences, research projects, textbook information acquisition and note taking techniques. Students also study speed, velocity, acceleration and gravity. Through experiments they evaluate chemical reactions. They study air, water, and chemical pollution as well as fossil fuels, solar energy, and energy conservation. Also studied are: electric currents, fields and circuits along with magnetic fields and electromagnetism. Special lab items are necessary at this level and include beakers, safety goggles, gram scale, copper sulfate, 0.5 M acetic acid, crucible tongs, and zinc (mossy).

    Using the True North series and Awesome Science DVD series together, you can teach your students about what the rocks tell us about the earth and its history. This planner pulls them all together to make a full one-year curriculum that equals one high school credit. The 180 daily lesson plans lay it all out for you, along with reproducible worksheets (for ten or less and homeschool families), quizzes and tests, and the answer key. The worksheets include activities, discussion questions, short answer, fill-in-the-blank and vocabulary. The daily schedule is formatted in an easy-to-follow chart that also includes space for assignment due dates and recording grades. Lessons take 30-45 minutes daily, and some labs are suggested but not required. If you have a geology buff in your family, why not take the time to teach them about the geological record from a biblical perspective? ~ Donna

    This fascinating book explores many different facets of mathematics, and is an intriguing read for anyone - whether or not they enjoy the actual subject! It begins with a chapter which discusses the calendar - how it came about, problems and changes that were corrected and re-corrected, how the months were named and the days were divided amongst them, different people who influenced the calendar, and finally the system that we have today. Did you know that our calendar will have to be adjusted again, assuming we reach the year 5329? By then, our current calendar will be off an entire day. The text is so interesting it's hard not to just keep reading. Throughout the text, questions, puzzles, and problems are offered as a challenge for students. Some of the topics covered include measuring, practical mathematics, number names and patterns, endless numbers, math for scientists, and computing machines. Lots of history is given with each topic, so students learn not only about the concepts but how they were formed and developed over time to give us the functions we commonly use today. An excellent supplement to any math curriculum, reading a chapter from this book would provide an excellent break from the daily math lessons. 157 pgs. - Melissa
