2009-2010 Science Curriculum

Well, it's that time of year again. We're starting to think about the new school year. My friends are posting pictures of what curricula they are using next year on their Facebook pages. And, of course, I don't want to be left out. So here's what we're doing this year for science: Chemistry.

Would your future paleontologist like some NY fossils? Nothing fancy like dinosaurs here, though.

You betcha! She'd love that!

Awwww. Your books look fun :) Has your future paleontologist seen the book "Bones Rock! Everything You Need to Know to Be a Paleontologist"? It has a few evolutionary references, but it's mostly a fun description of fossil hunting, full of great photos, and perfect for her age. We're using Prentice Hall's "Earth Science" w/ my 8th & 9th grade sons.

Thanks for sharing your list. It helps to see things others are using and I might not have thought of.

For the past year I've been reviewing curriculum as we're starting more organized learning in our home this year. I'm finding Ancient History is surprising as difficult to find without evolutionary or young earth bents and timelines. Some even make a point to argue how wrong (and ungodly, I kid you not) old earth beliefs are and obviously right they are.

So, I'm wondering if you know any blogs with good old earth history coverage like yours? Or maybe you would consider branching out some?

Child of God said...

Oh, you don't have to convince me that young earth curriculum claims that old-earth creationism is ungodly. I have an entire office full of curriculum samples from young-earth publishers. I've read them all.

As far as ancient history is concerned, I love that subject too. I'll try to cobble together a post for you. Thanks for the great idea.

I'm a long-time RTB reader/listener and homeschooling mom and appreciate finding this blog and all the great links and resources--especially as I'm the only "old earth Christian homeschooler" that I personally know!! --Thanks!

I'm in the same boat as Joy. This blog is a "lifeline" of sorts. THANK YOU for the wealth of information you continually offer here!

I'm in the same boat as Joy and Kathy. This is my first year of homeschooling. I am excited to find this site, and to know that I am not alone! Blessings!
