Multi-level Quiz & Test Options: The Science Starters curriculum allows multi-age students between grades 3 to 6 to be taught at the same time. For your convenience we have included two different levels of quizzes and final exams so that you can choose the ones most appropriate for your student’s age and educational abilities.

Suggested levels include:
Level 1 – Grades 3 to 4
Level 2 – Grades 5 & 6

Workflow: Students will read two pages in their book and then complete one page of the Student Journal. Extra Projects are also assigned. Quizzes are given at regular intervals.

Lesson Scheduling: Space is given for assignment dates. There is flexibility in scheduling. While each quarter has 45 days of assignments, they do not have to be given M-F. Some students may prefer to do more assignments each day, allowing for breaks on other days. Each week listed has five days but due to vacations the school work week may not be M-F. Please adapt the days to your school schedule. As the student completes each assignment, he/she should put an “X” in the box.

Parent Lesson Planners are easy-to-use with suggested daily schedules, as well as three-hole punched perforated pages so worksheets, quizzes, and tests can be easily removed before students begin their coursework.


Course Description

This is the suggested course sequence that allows one core area of science to be studied per semester. You can change the sequence of the semesters per the needs or interests of your student; materials for each semester are independent of one another to allow flexibility.

Semester 1: Chemistry

Investigate the Possibilities Elementary Chemistry-Matter Its Properties & Its Changes: Infused with fun through activities and applied learning, this dynamic full-color book provides over 20 great ways to learn about bubbles, water colors, salt, and the periodic table, all through interactive lessons that ground students in their faith in God.

About the Authors:
Authors Tom DeRosa and Carolyn Reeves are committed biblical creationists with a combined 60 years teaching science. Both are excellent at helping students experience science concepts in the world around them.

Tom Derosa studied biblical creation and became committed to breaking down the barrier of a lack of knowledge about the biblical account of creation that is keeping people from Christ. In 1988 he formed Creation Studies Institute and has authored several books.

Carolyn Reeves, Ph.D., and her husband make their home in Oxford, Mississippi where they are active members of North Oxford Baptist Church. Carolyn retired after a 30-year career as a science teacher, finished a doctoral degree in science education, and began a new venture as a writer and an educational consultant. The Reeves have three children, three in-law children and nine grandchildren.
