God's Design for the Physical World--Heat and Energy

by Richard and Debbie Lawrence Author

The biblically based "Gods Design for the Physical World" series was designed by homeschoolers for homeschoolers! Heat & Energy explores various forms of energy, thermal energy, electricity, magnetism, waves & sound, light, while teaching about fossil fuels, nuclear power, the sun, and more! Designed for grades 3-8, full-color photos, diagrams, illustrations, special features and fun facts take the tediousness out of science, while key concepts are continually reinforced and explored through chapter review and activities. Color-coded by age group, chapter reviews are separated for 3rd-5th grade and 6th-8th grade students to quickly find their assignments. This easy-to-use curriculum is ideal for anyone who wants to teach earth & space science from a God-centered, creationist point of view. This is one student book of three in the "Gods Design for the Physical World" Series; each contains 35 lessons with one final project to merge all the lessons together. At the pace of 3 lessons a week (approximately 30-45 minutes each), you can cover the 3-book series (other books sold separately) within a year. 128 partially reproducible pages, softcover with glossary and index. Grades 3-8. NKJV Scripture used.
