Curriculum for Teachers

The Teaching Biblically-Based Science Workbook is designed for homeschool moms or any other adult that teaches science to children. This workbook offers practical tips on establishing the Bible as the foundation for science classes. The Word of God provides ample scientific information that extends well beyond the Creation account. By reviewing foundational truths from the Bible, this workbook will enable teachers to use their classes as an exciting learning experience for their students while also teaching their students to interact with their Savior on a personal level through His Creation. In addition, this workbook specifically addresses concerns such as the evolution/Creation debate, making science fun and interesting and dealing with the intimidation factor many feel when facing science and giving a fresh perspective on teaching science to children.
