I think I am in love, with a homeschool curriculum that is. I have a love/hate relationship with some of the curriculum we are using this year. I love the material yet it lacks the focus on the Lord I desire. I had the opportunity to take a break from what we have been using and check out a a program with the similar approach of note-booking we have not tried before. Of course I jumped on that and I just might not ever look back!
Eagle’s Wings is a biblically based curriculum provider that uses note-booking to engage student creativity and a hands on approach with simple activities to help the student really get their curiosity going.
Considering God’s Creation is a low cost, high quality complete Science curriculum geared toward grades 2-7 but completely adaptable for younger or older grades making it a great choice for large families. The teacher’s Manual has a section that easily explains how to do just that.
Using the scripted Teacher’s Manual you guide the student along in their study of Getting to know God through his creation. Letting your children become real scientists and showing them how to look for the knowledge they seek. The Student Notebook is a thing of beauty, as the children work in their notebooks they are creating a record of God’s world as they discover it. Included are songs and poems that are catchy and remind the children how God’s creation works.
I really love this program, it is gentle yet through and you can really do it in your own way, it is that flexible. For example my son wanted to learn about the earth because it tied in with what we are learning in My Father’s World right now. It meshed perfectly and I was so happy with how easy it was to do the lesson. The lessons are short and provide natural breaks, where we were used to a lesson seeming to take forever because I did not know just how to break it up.
My son is only beginning to feel confident in his researching abilities and so for him to be able to do the notebook pages on his own was huge! Considering God’s Creation covers natural science including the following topics:
- The Universe: Stars, Sun and Planets
- The Earth
- Non-Living Things : Rocks and Minerals
- The Plant Kingdom
- The Animal Kingdom
- Animal Anatomy and Physiology
- Man: Made In God’s Image
- A variety of scientists
My son is 8 and he really enjoyed the time we spent with this product, especially the songs and poems, and he can not wait until we fully incorporate it into our year in the fall. I was hoping there was a series of the science curriculum for sale but right now this is the only science program sold by Eagle’s Wings, I look forward to using it and any future programs.
