General Science I is an intermediate course intended to expose students to the designs and patterns in God’s physical universe. This course expands on the Science 600 course, providing a set of basic scientific skills and a broad survey of the major areas of science. Some of the areas covered in General Science I include the scientific method, overview of the four major areas of science, mathematics in science, astronomy, the atmosphere, natural cycles, weather and climate, human anatomy and physiology, and careers in science. The 7th grade homeschool curriculum seeks to develop the student’s ability to be aware of and participate in scientific inquiry.
General science gives students a broad scientific look at the world through the eyes of biblical doctrine. From the cells and systems of the human body, to the mysteries of space, to the study of the earth and its atmosphere, all lessons encourage critical thinking from a Christian perspective while supporting a lifelong interest in the natural world. This 7th grade homeschool curriculum gives students an overview of many facets of science, from an introduction to science, to an in-depth look at a number of different disciplines including the earth in space, the planets, astronomy, the weather and climate, the human body, and careers in science. Students in the Homeschool Advantage program will do their science labs all online through Smart Science Labs for a consistent lab experience and no need to purchase equipment or supplies for experiments. Students in the Homeschool Edition will do their labs as selected within the General Science curriculum.
