How to Use This Course

Fun with Science is a great way to introduce your younger elementary students to basic life science, earth science, and physical science concepts. From body systems to volcanoes, the five senses to the states of matter, students can discover amazing facts about God’s creation. Lots of printable worksheets and hands-on activities are included.

Course Introduction

What are the parts of the eye, and how can you tell which eye is dominant? How do taste buds work, and why are they important? What are the functions of the skeletal, digestive, circulatory, respiratory, muscular, and nervous systems? These are a few of the life science topics explored in Fun with Science. This course also looks at volcanoes, temperature, states of matter, basic types of energy, and more. Simple vocabulary for each topic is learned, and plenty of hands-on activities are included to help your students enjoy and remember all that they are learning about themselves and the world around them.
