Elementary Science:  Ages 10-12

At this age, students can make the transition from learning about all the sciences in one year to a more in-depth study of each of the sciences individually.  We love the new science books from Berean Builders for this age.  Science in the Ancient World and Science in the Scientific Revolution provide students with a historical overview of scientific discoveries.   Because the course covers science as it was developed, it covers a wide range of topics including human anatomy, medicine, optics, heliocentrism, geocentrism, sound, music, magnets, how steam is used to generate power, the motion of objects through a medium, combustion, levers, pulleys, plant growth, plant anatomy, tree ring dating, the atmosphere, astronomy, the basics of graphing, plastics, density, water flow, friction, and erosion.

Science in the Ancient World

570 BC - 1500 AD

Year 1

Science in the Scientific Revolution

1550 AD - 1700 AD

Year 2

If students follow a schedule of 2 science lessons per week, they will be able to complete the lessons in each of these books in one year of school.

(Challenge lessons excluded as they are optional)
