Creation Science Study Guide

 

creation-science-study-guide-cover-imageThe Creation Science Study Guide from Media Angels Publishing is one of a series of unit study guides. The guide was created to give students a strong foundation in the young-earth creationist viewpoint as well as to point out weaknesses within Darwinian theory. It is organized in a way that makes it easy to use with multiple students at different levels. It includes recommendations for real books to read, directions for experiments and hands-on activities for students K-3, grades 4-8 and students in grades 9-12.

The unit study guide is based around Creation Science topics but includes ways to integrate lessons in geography, history, language arts, math, art, and music during the 6-8 weeks it takes to complete the lessons. It provides a detailed reading list, vocabulary and spelling lists and detailed information for the homeschool parent on teaching each section.

“This series very much reflects what I think science education should look like with its combination of real books, experiments, and other interesting activities that truly engage children in the study of science. “ ~ Cathy Duffy, Author, Christian Home Educators Curriculum Manuals

Teaching Science in Your Homeschool | Using the Scientific Method

Teaching Science in Your Homeschool | Using the Scientific Method

Teaching Science in Your Homeschool | Using the Scientific Method

The scientific method provides a sequential way to teach the process of scientific inquiry to your students. This takes the pressure off of the teacher and allows her to count on the process. In a word, it makes teaching science in your homeschool doable.

What is the scientific method?

It’s following a sequential series of steps in an attempt to find an answer to a scientific question. When a question is asked, such as, “What does a plant need in order to grow?”, you follow a series of questions to (hopefully) come up with an answer. It’s not always the answer you expect or want. But, the process of discovering the answer is what’s referred to as the scientific method.

What are all the steps and what do all the steps in the scientific method mean?

There’s a basic 8-step process of inquiry. The steps and their definition are:

  1. Question- What is being solved?
  2. Research- What do I use for study?
  3. Hypothesis- What do I think the answer is?
  4. Materials-  What’s my list of items needed for experiments?
  5. Procedure – What are the sequential steps taken in executing the experiment?
  6. Experiment- A test or hypothesis.
  7. Observation – Careful examination of what’s taking place.
  8. Conclusion: a synopsis of the experiment

You can create a simple checklist based upon this process (which I include in my Study Guide, Teaching Science and Having Fun) based on these 8 definitions.

Is the scientific method for all grade levels?

The scientific method is ideal for all grade levels, including your younger ones. While I love nature study and hands-on activities (and advocate them!), a balance of using worksheets in science for our observations was important. While you wouldn’t expect a preschooler to write out the steps, they can be drawn or even talked through.

Can we do experiments without writing out the steps of the scientific method?

The scientfic method can be simple enough for a preschooler and complex enough for a graduate student. When conducting experiments, using this simple but throughout method of inquiry and recording your observations serves many purposes.

  • it provides a record of learning
  • it’s a ready-made hands-on approach to learning
  • troubleshooting an experiment failure is easier
  • cross-curriculum application, such as math or history, is made easy through notation

In conclusion, teaching science using the scientific method is a sound and proven way to approach the subject of science in your homeschool.

Setting Up a Science Lab in Your Homeschool

Setting up a science lab in your homeschool on a shoestring budget in no time at all.

Setting Up a Science Lab in Your Homeschool

Experiments don’t have to come from ready made kits. You can be about the business of setting up a science lab in your homeschool.

There are many great experiment books that require materials you can find at home. For example, your an make an electric motor using magnets, batteries, cork, pins, a knitting needle, copper wire, clay, a small base of wood, a knife, and tacks. Most of us have these things in our home. A ready made kit isn’t ncessary.

Plan to organize your science lab supplies

There are many sources for lab supplies, but my favorites are the do-it-yourself kind.  You can use tackle boxes, plastic totes, and even pencil boxes to store your lab supplies. Keeping these items on hand saves money in the long run.

Finding materials for your homeschool science lab

There are many places you can find even the hardest to find materials. The hardware store, an arts supply store, an electronics store, and of course- Amazon. But, what do you buy? What do you need to have on hand?

Lab equipment on a shoestring budget…

  1. large magnifying glass
  2. eye droppers
  3. coffee filter paper
  4. thermometer
  5. labels
  6. candles
  7. baby food jars
  8. spice jars
  9. heat-proof measuring cups
  10. measuring spoons
  11. a balance
  12. kitchen scale
  13. funnels
  14. sieve
  15. timing device
  16. metal spoon
  17. scissors
  18. sharp knife
  19. small brushes
  20. string
  21. paper
  22. pencils

Biology, chemistry, and physics use the above list and additional specialized equipment. A non-comprehensive list includes:

  • tweezers
  • sharp metal pick
  • plastic tubing
  • flashlight
  • microscope
  • dissecting kits
  • petri dishes
  • Bunsen burner
  • safety goggles

For a comprehensive list, I recommend my book, Teaching Science and Having Fun.

Creating a Safe Place for your Homeschool Science Lab

While much can be done at the kitchen table, there are some special considerations to take when performing experiments and setting up your lab. I recommend:

  • a clutter free space that is well lit
  • the kitchen or bathroom sink ready with soap, water, towels, and free of dishes, etc.
  • keeping a basket with emergency things such as a small fire extinguisher, eye wash,  goggles, and non-latex gloves
  • kitty litter to get spills up quickly
  • a chemical mask
  • a basic first aid kit
  • a carpet free flooring

Setting up a science lab in your homeschool doesn’t have to be expensive or complicated. With a little planning you can have one ready to go!
