Parents/Teachers will love…
- Teaching: No separate teacher’s manuals to keep handy; all instructions and explanations are written simply in one place. Print out the pages, store in a binder, add any “extras” you want right with the sub-topic! While there are some teacher’s notes in the first edition, the second edition also includes a few additional pages of teaching tips!
- Prep: Minimal or no teacher prep-work the night before. Use common household items that most children can get themselves and clean up themselves. No expensive kits needed to purchase. We provide you a list of things to gather.
- Flexible: Lessons designed to be taught to any learning style because we aim for aa balance of written, oral, and hands-on skills. The method of evaluation is your choice – mark notebooks & projects or design your own quizzes or just keep the completed curriculum in a portfolio box.
- Scheduling: Lessons are undated and units can be rearranged as desired.
- Canadian: PSLC curriculum focuses on content relating to Canada.
- Versatile – While originally designed for individual learning at home, it can be used for public or private classrooms or home school association group learning as well.
Children will love…
- the large primary-print style for summary notes and copywork.
- the simple diagrams, charting, a few experiments, cut & paste, colouring, drawing, measuring, oral presentations, designing, and model-building…. They will feel like they are accomplishing something of value (because they really are)!
- each day can be a different experience for them because our science is not routine-based/boring. Some days they will copy a note, the next day might be an activity outdoors, and the next day after that, something to build or make…but there is no consistent predictability as to how a lesson might be presented. This is how I was taught science by my elementary teachers and I loved it! And the variety helps lessons “stick”, even in the middle of winter or in the midst of “spring fever”! With the PSLC printed books, children have been known to “peek ahead” with “I wonder what I get in science tomorrow!” With the curriculum being in printable e-book format, parents/teachers can keep it a “secret” until the next day or give students a printed copy of each unit.
- the variety of topics in science class – natural science plus how things work in their world! Children learn LOTS of science-based information while working with items around their home and yard.
About computer usage: There are supplementary links added within the book or on our new Pinterest science board but our science program is complete on its own so that families without an internet connection can use it happily. There are a few lessons in this book provided for a basic understanding of what a computer is and does.
About the Bible: PSLC science books uphold the Biblical perspective on “origins”, ethics, and life choices when these topics are taught, however, Bible learning is not “integrated” into most science lessons. Bible-related content is usually printed in the appendix for parents who wish to add it to a few of the lessons.
