Exploring Creation with General Science, 3rd Edition, Advantage Set©
Apologia’s Exploring Creation with General Science, 3rd Edition is specifically designed to help your student make this transition from sixth grade into middle school and become a more independent, life-long learner.
This prize pack is for an Exploring Creation with General Science, 3rd Edition and it includes:
- Test and Solutions Manual
- Student Notebook
- and MP3 Audio CD
This third edition is a true general science course covering a wide range of the branches of science while making the connections between each.
Students will learn what science is and, in a detailed and engaging way, how to utilize the proper scientific method.
This edition is packed with hands-on experiments which can be completed using household materials.
Bonus Hands-on Work: Middle school-aged children still greatly benefit from hands-on exploration, so like our elementary series, we include several optional activities (called Explore More) to allow students to further explore the scientific concepts presented in each module.
Tests: There are tests provided for each module, however, students are given many study helps via their student notes within the Student Notebook, and a practice Study Guide they complete once they complete a module. The first two module tests are assigned to be given as open-book tests so that students learn the format of this course and more easily transition to improve the skill of test-taking, thus preparing them for upper grades and even college work.
Character-building: Middle school-aged students are in a transition period between childhood and adulthood, and we believe it is important to emphasize the importance of character. Thus in each module, parents are encouraged (and guided) to incorporate character performance into their student’s grade.
Grading: Complete, step-by-step grading rubrics are provided to the parents, showing how to calculate a module grade from the student’s module test, lab work, and character displayed throughout the module.
Seeing God’s Creative Hand: Throughout the course, students are able to see evidence of God’s creation as they learn scientific principles. Additionally, they will be excited to learn about many great scientists in history who were driven to study our world out of a desire to better know God as its creator. The course is sandwiched by this historical information within the first module and a presentation of testimonies by modern-day scientists in the last module to help encourage students to study science to better know God and give him glory!
