Science 400 is a basic elementary course intended to expose students to the designs and patterns in God’s physical universe. This course builds on concepts taught in Science 300, providing a broad survey of the major areas of science. Some of the areas covered in Science 400 include the study of plants and animals, ecology, work and simple machines, electricity and magnetism, properties of water and matter, weather, solar system, and the different spheres of earth. The course seeks to develop the student’s ability to understand and participate in scientific inquiry. The units contain experiments and projects to capitalize on children’s natural curiosity.

Students explore matter as they travel through space exploring not only the earth, but the sun, moon, and the planets. Exciting lessons cover the ecology of the earth and how weather and other scientific forces affect life on our planet. Infused with biblical content and Bible verses, students examine God’s work in the world around them and engage in learning from a Christ-centered point of view.

Throughout the course, students will explore the following topics: Plants; Animals; Man’s Environment; Machines; Electricity and Magnetism; Water and the Properties of Matter; The Forces of Weather; Exploring the Solar System; Planet Earth; God’s Creation.
