Discovering God's World
Science at this age is mostly about inspiring the children to explore and discover the world around them, as well as an exposure to scientific terms and ideas. This class is geared to the younger children and includes hands on work.
We have designed our nJoy curriculum to run on a 3 year cycle. Each year has an overall theme to tie it all together.
This will be year 2 year of the three year rotation. The theme for this year is: "Inventions". We will cover a wide range of the inventions that influence our life today. We will look at some of the scientists involved. We will look at parallel examples of God's design in nature. We will look at some of the materials developed along with the inventions. We will encourage the children to be inventive thinkers.

Note: The theme for the younger Discovering God's World class and the older nJoy General Science class is the same, so that families can study together. However, the information and activities are adapted to the abilities of the two different age groups.
We provide an online "handout" after each lesson. The handout explains what we covered in the lesson and makes suggestions for further optional study or activities at home.
We provide a reading list from which you can pick titles for optional additional reading.
