We do not have a separate science curriculum for students in 3rd grade or younger. Our own younger children tend to “listen in” to our science discussions each day, and we’re amazed how much they learn.
However, we don’t feel that formal science instruction is necessary for children younger than 4th grade. Instead, our lesson plans will include a simple, weekly science discussion topic (with learning ideas) for parents of young children.
We recommend you do these activities with your children each Sabbath day, as you remember that “in six days YHWH made heaven and earth, the sea, and all that is in them” (Exodus 20:11, ESV).
Throughout this curriculum, we recommend various websites to study topics in further depth. If you don’t have access to the Internet, a local library should be able to provide you with many similar resources.
Please use discretion when using any website, including the ones we recommend, and always supervise your children when using the Internet.
Please contact us if any link does not work so that we may update it.
