Science 5 focuses on man's use of God’s creation and design and studies minerals and rocks, fossils, matter and heat, sound and light, weather, biomes, ecosystems, and the respiratory and circulatory systems. The student develops his science process skills as he participates in hands-on activities and projects. The Science 5 Teacher’s Edition contains 126 lessons grouped in six units. Each unit consists of two interrelated chapters. Most lessons include additional background information, cross-curricular links, and scientific activities. Information for the teacher includes suggestions for teaching the material as a three-quarter year program or as a half-year program. The Teacher’s Edition also includes useful information about science process skills, the management of activities, and grading. Reproducible pages, a materials list, rubrics for assessing Activity and Explorations lessons, and the Science 5 alignment with national standards are located in the back of the Teacher’s Edition. The Teacher's Toolkit CD-ROM includes quizzes, science fair information, and more.
