Class Format:

Science is best learned in a hands on fashion.  This class will provide lots of opportunities to discuss, explore and experiment with physical and life science ideas.  Students will be asked to complete some activities like reading and printing off materials at home so they can participate with the class discussions.  In class, we will focus our attention on questions, exploration and lab experiments.  After we have covered all the material for a topic, I will assign a test. Some test will be taken in class while others will be given as homework. My heart is to integrate as much Charlotte Mason methodology as possible so we can deeply explore God's creation.
