Are you looking for a hands-on Bible-oriented science curriculum for elementary school kids?
Do you want something that can be taught in a group environment?
Would you like to teach real science in a fun, hands-on way from gorgeous resources?
I’ve got you covered.
Bible Science Experiments for Kids
Erin Lee Green was a chemistry, astronomy, and geology teacher in the US. She now lives in Puerto Rico and homeschools her children there. Green has written two wonderful volumes of Big Bible Science: Experiment and Explore God’s Word (CF4K, 2016 and 2019). They just may be the answer to all your hands-on science needs for your elementary-aged kids!
Each Bible science book consists of 21 experiments covering an interesting–and academic–range of topics. There isn’t any fluff here. Your kids will be learning real science from a biblical worldview.
Each Bible Science Experiment Includes:
- A “Big Idea”–with a Bible story or concept that relates to the scientific concept
- Several activities (2-4) to facilitate learning about the scientific concept
- An “Apply It” section with several ideas for continued study and devotional questions
- A “Go Beyond” section with a few more ideas: an in-depth activity
- A Bible reading
- A short science biography
The Bible science books are 96 and 112 pages each. They’re visually awesome, with thick glossy full-color pages and tons of illustrations.
Science Experiments Kids Will Love!
The scientific concepts in the book are advanced. They are really ideal for 3-5th grade students. However, because the work is so hands-on (it is suggested that students keep a notebook–but younger ones wouldn’t have to), and because this is teacher-led, younger students shouldn’t have trouble following along. In fact, they will enjoy the hands-on learning and a little extra help from mom or dad!
I highly recommend Big Bible Science and Big Bible Science 2 as a great hands-on, fun introduction to important scientific concepts. These are great tools for a co-op, or at home!
