In the student textbook, clearly-written chapters will help students learn about earthquakes, volcanoes, weathering, natural resources, cells, classification system, reproduction, genetics, atoms, molecules, motion, machines, and the nervous & immune systems. Science experiments, projects, diagrams, and charts are also provided, along with review exercises.
The teacher's guide features helpful teacher notes on background information, Bible application, cross-curricular links, and science activities are included.
