Sonlight has created a series of science courses from preschool through highschool using collected science reference books, textbooks, literature and supplies. They have created their own teacher guides/schedules, which we do not carry; and assembled supply kits, which we sometimes have used. Theyhave also produced the fun and fact-filled DVD series "Discover & Do," which we offer used when wecan.
Science D gives students an up-close look at the observable world and the forces behind what we can see. Students focus on Physics (energy, gravity, sound, electricity, and machines) and Biology (life, cells, plants and photosynthesis, plant growth, protists, frogs, butterflies, ecosystems, food cycle, water cycle, air cycle, the human body and animals).
They’ll also explore seas and oceans, water, and creation/evolution. Students will build a greenhouse and conduct botany experiments to understand what living things need. The DVD, Incredible Creatures that Defy Evolution I leads students to examine the wonders of the world more closely and consider their source.
Students learn how living things are categorized and named (taxonomy). They discover biological processes and how they work through hands-on experiments and projects.
You and your children will learn through hands-on activities and interesting books such as Usborne Science Encyclopedia, Magic School Bus, two TOPS Green Thumb books and more. You'll return to these same subjects at deeper levels many times in the years ahead.
To complete your program you will need:
A Non-Consumable Science Supplies Kit (NSK).
Please Note: Sonlight Curriculum does not sell their materials to Exodus Books. We carry many of the same titles, and are often able to obtain used copies of books they publish. The following is culled from their 2013 websiteand includes much of their selection, though it is not comprehensive, nor is it in any sort of curricular order. For a complete listing, visit the Sonlight Curriculum website.
