My daughter loves science. It’s a very hands on subject, with lots of things to do and discover. I think one of the neatest things about homeschooling is that I have the opportunity not just to teach my girls about the world around them, but to show them that God is everywhere, in everything.
I particularly like our curriculum this year because each subject draws from a Biblical worldview. There are Bible verses and passages that tie into every lesson plan. I don’t think there is a subject we have this year that doesn’t invlove pulling our Bible out as a reference right alongside our textbooks.
We use this Bible specifically for science. Whenever I say to my daughter, “It’s time for science” she runs and not only grabs her science textbook, but also the Heavens Bible which has now become a regular part of our homeschool routine. This Bible comes with beautiful, full color photos of the heavens, an illustrated timeline, facts about space and the universe, a Bible dictionary and Where do I find it? section, as well as sections of Bible memory verses and the promises of God. I like to use the memory verses and promises section as conversation starters with my 4-year-old. We read a verse or promise and then talk about what she thinks it means. Since science involves a lot of thinking, I feel this works as a great warm up for her little brain before we begin each lesson.
Yours in Chirst,
