Rated 5 out of 5 by from This is a great text for giving kids a general knowledge of the earth and universe. The activities are really enjoyable and it is a remarkable fun class to teach. The text does a great job of presenting Biblical truth in conjunction with what the world is saying. I think it is critical that children be given the tools to respond to a media and world that is telling them that Biblical creation is a myth. This text does a great job. My only criticism is that there is too much to accomplish well in one year. I think that there are several chapters (mountains and volcanoes, for example) that could be incorporated into a single chapter. Otherwise this is a fabulous text.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Review of BJU textbooks used at Faith Christian School, Williams Bay, Wisconsin I'm a '68 alumnus of BJU and have been teaching for over 43 years, all in a Christian school. Where possible I've always used BJU Press materials because of the manner in which a Biblical worldview is integrated into whatever subject material the book covers. The ONLY thing I have been disappointed in was when the Press went from "hard-backed" texts to "soft-covered" texts. I've spoken with persons from the "Pres" and they shared that it is more cost efficient to use the soft covers. And, I understand that - but considering the many, many, Christian schools that use your materials and the tight budgets most of them operate from, it is quite difficult purchasing new books every 3-4 years or even more frequently because of how rapidly the soft-covered texts need to be replaced because of wear and tear. I don't expect you to change but just wanted you folks to see it from our side of the situation. I use the 7th, 8th, 9th, Bio, and Chem texts from BJU press and expect to continue. I also teach an Anatomy & Physiology class but no texts are available for that course to my knowledge so many years ago I contacted Dr. Henson (my former Prof) and asked him to recommend a text and he did and I'm still using that. Thank you for the opportunity to share. Mike Bechman.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Terrific My homeschooled 8th grader loves BJU Earth Science. He first loves the exciting visual layout and how its organized. As his teacher, I love it too. It is easy to use. I am SO impressed with all the work that went into writing it. The labs are easy to do, and use common materials and are fun. I love the way the biblical basis is front and center! We have looked at many other curriculums and are so blessed that we found BJU science!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy to use test key. Answers are provided with page location of the information required to understand the question. I appreciate the page numbers listed with the answers. That saves a lot of time when we go back to review why an answer was marked incorrect.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Science 8 Needs Updating! After several months into this school year, I am convinced that this science curriculum and dvd lessons desperately need to be updated. The material is 5+ years out of date. Another subject might not be affected so greatly by this time frame, but science needs to be kept current. The "patches" made in the material to try to cover the lack (example: a poem about Pluto no longer being considered a planet...the only discussion made of this issue) but are weak. Had I been aware of this I would have chosen a different science curriculum for this school year.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Excellent information ~ horrid design for textbook While the quality of the content is excellent...the softcover books are absurd. The cost the the text would be acceptable, if not excellent EXCEPT for the fact that they will not endure the beatings that they will take from students throwing them into book bags and lockers. These books will have to be replaced within 2, maybe 3 years. Very disappointed with them.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Outstanding worlview! I am just beginning to tap into the resources but am impressed by the worldview. I am a history teacher with a love for earth science (reminds me some of geography) teaching earth science for the first time. I am also overwhelmed with all I have to learn. If the students do no more than read the textbook they will be well on their way to beginning an excellent earth science education.
