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 3 year of the three year rotation. The theme for this year is: "The Science Around Us". Our goal will be to learn about the scientific method and to explore some day to day physical concepts such as mass, heat and energy. We will learn more about our 5 senses and what we eat, and we will discover science in some of the different ecosystems of the earth. Children will participate in hands-on activities.

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.
