Timberdoodle's review Learn more
 
This book begins with a lesson on the nature of astronomy, and then it covers the major structures of our solar system. Starting with the sun and working towards Pluto, the student will learn details about all nine planets (or is it eight? -- your student will have to decide) in the solar system.

Along the way, the student will also learn about Earth's moon, the asteroid belt, and the Kuiper belt. After that, the student will move outside our solar system and learn about the stars and galaxies that make up God's incredible universe. Finally, the student will learn about space travel and what it takes to be an astronaut!

About the Young Explorer Series:
When we decided to offer our customers a boxed curriculum, we knew that our eclectic approach to science needed a bit of fine-tuning, so we knew we needed Young Explorer, Jeannie Fulbright's elementary science program. Not only does this in-depth curriculum, with its gorgeous, full-color pictures and captivating, God-exalting text, sparkle in comparison to the mainstream, dry-bones science program, it utilizes what we believe is the most sensible method to teaching science, the immersion approach.

While other science programs, with their yearly superficial overviews, quickly become tedious as children encounter the repetitiveness of topic matters, the Young Explorer science immersion program will allow your family to enjoy the depth and riches that genuine science can give. Most home-taught children who enjoy science are being taught with a science immersion program.

Because this program utilizes a combination of the Charlotte Mason and classical methods, you can count on each Young Explorer book to acknowledge the evidence of Creation, have easy-to-follow lessons that are self-contained, include hands-on activities, and support National Standards of Science. Recommended for ages six through twelve, but written with a fourth-grader in mind, you may find that your older children will enjoy doing the coursework on their own, while younger, less confident readers will prefer parental involvement.

Although the author encourages you to select books based on topics and not grade level, she also favors the following sequence due to the difficulty of the subject matter: Astronomy, Botany, Zoology 1: Flying Creatures, Zoology 2: Swimming Creatures, Zoology 3: Land Animals, Human Anatomy and Physiology, Chemistry and Physics.

Every hardback book comes with eye-popping, full-color pictures; recommended activities and projects; and engaging, conversational text.
