Science 300 is a basic elementary course intended to expose students to the designs and patterns in God’s physical universe. This course provides a broad survey of the major areas of science. Some of the areas covered in Science 300 include the human body, plants, animals, health and nutrition, matter, sound waves, earth science, and heat energy. The course seeks to develop the student’s ability to understand and participate in scientific inquiry. The units contain experiments and projects designed to build on children’s natural curiosity. The student will explore, observe, and manipulate everyday objects and materials in their environment.

With a focus on observation and analysis, students learn about the blue planet through exciting multimedia elements, interesting text-based lessons, and learning games. Lessons include Bible verses and inspiration to encourage students to see the physical world from a Christian perspective and see God’s hand in the creation of the diversity of life, the human body, and the changing of the seasons. Exciting experiments help students to understand challenging scientific concepts while fostering keen observational skills and scientific inquiry. Students will study the systems of the human body, the life of plants, the world of animals, matter, energy, and sound as they progress through the homeschool 3rd grade course.
