The Earth: Its Structure & Its Changes is a study of the fascinating world of geology. With explanations of how our Earth was shaped, this elementary science curriculum gives evidence to the Genesis Flood, accompanying earthquakes, volcanic eruptions, and other powerful processes. Students will explore 20 “investigations” through experiments and a very specific learning progression.



The Investigate the Possibilities learning progression:
• Engage - Students make a note of what they know or have experienced about the topic.
• Investigate - Students will follow the instructions and make observations of what happens.
• Explain - Students will begin to understand the science behind what they observed in the investigation.
• Apply - Here, the understanding of the investigation is related to other situations and ideas.
• Expand -Each investigation also includes a few “Dig Deeper” projects to further understanding.
• Assess - Students explain what they have learned.

Students will examine natural occurrences such as mountains, volcanoes, rocks, minerals, crystals, water, and dirt (just to name a few). By using household items such as hard boiled eggs, oranges, measuring cups, maps, clay and markers, these scientific truths will come to life.

This title contains a full circle view of geology, creation, and history. All three of these topics are combined to create the big picture for your student and develop a stronger root in their faith. Also available is the combined teacher’s guide and student journal.

While geology is at the heart of this newest book in the Investigate the Possibilities series, other titles within this series include: Forces & Motion, Matter, and Energy. These are perfect for elementary education, grades 3rd-6th.


Water & Weather
by Tom DeRosa & Carolyn Reeves Includes Student Text (88 Page 11 x 8 1/2 paperback Full Color), the Teacher's Guide, and the Student Journal.
Retail Prices: $22.97

• Learn about zones in the ocean, from warm, clear water to the deepest, coldest places
• Find out the facts about the weather cycle, earth's purification system, weather instruments, and more!
• Discover the important connection between water and fossils—how this helped to form, alter, and reveal them

Science unfolds as activities bring alive the natural curiosity of children. This new title covers not only the weather and varying climates around the world, but explores the results of weather events in the past. The great Flood was a cataclysmic event that left behind fossils, and these impressions reveal much about what happened during and after this historical event. Form a connection between this biblical history and the world experienced outside your door as natural processes like rain and wind are shown to be forces at work in the environment!


The Universe
by Tom DeRosa & Carolyn Reeves Includes Student Text (88 Page 11 x 8 1/2 paperback Full Color), the Teacher's Guide, and the Student Journal.
Retail Prices: $22.97

A positive experience of astronomy and the Creator that is hands-on!

Through simple experiments and fact-finding problems, the new Investigate the Possibilities astronomy curriculum brings to light God's design of this massive and intricate universe. Students will:

• Read about the historical discoveries of great scientists of the past like Kepler, Galileo, and Newton, and how their words impact us today
• Explore astronomy from the first observations of space, the creation of the telescope, the history of flight, and more
• Be encouraged in their faith, reading Scriptures that highlight God's magnificent hand in creation.

The Universe: From Comets to Constellations helps students become engaged in the scientific process through their own natural curiosity. Using everyday household items, the inexpensive experiments help bring science to life.

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.



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.
