How to Use This Course
General Science is a thorough introduction to science for middle schoolers. It will look at the history of science, scientific inquiry, geology, classification, and human anatomy through written and video resources.
The Red Wagon Tutorials General Science e-Notebook consists of two document parts: a Student Materials Notebook and a Parent Test Manual. The Student Materials Notebook contains the materials and video links that the student will use. The Parent Test Manual contains copies of the tests and answer keys that your student should take.
This course was originally designed to be used with the Apologia textbook Exploring Creation with General Science, 2nd edition, however it can be used as a standalone introduction to general science at a middle school level. Please let us know if we can help further. One more note: Please do not print the Notebook or Manual. It is designed to be used as digital media. You should save a copy of each to your computer’s hard drive, and we suggest a backup copy to a flash drive also be considered.
Please note: The materials in this class will be available for download from SchoolhouseTeachers.com through February 28, 2017. The links to the videos needed to complete the course will remain active through June 1, 2018, at which time the videos will cease to be available.
