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.
Students discover the wonders of the human body in Science F, including anatomy, health and nutrition, diseases, survival skills, the history of medicine, and a unit on gender differences and reproduction. The Blood & Guts book provides amusing and amazing hands-on experiments to teach about the body.
Students also learn about geology, fossils, evolution and intelligent design to better understand the broad discussion of the earth’s formation. A DVD, Unlocking the Mystery of Life, shows evidence for an Intelligent Designer and adds depth to the origin of life conversation.
There is a brief, three-week unit on survival skills (a unit at least tangentially related to health and human physiology!). We also touch on geology from both evolutionary and creationist perspectives.
If you have a boy, pick upThe Boy's Body Book; if a girl, The Care and Keeping of You: The Body Book for Girls.
The few science supplies you'll need should be available in your home. You don't need anything else to complete your program, but we would like to recommend: Lyrical Life Science.
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.
