At HHSEP, we teach students from the Biblical creation viewpoint with God being glorified and exalted for the creation of the complex world in which we live in! Science is taught as a “core curriculum” class for students in 2nd through 8th grade. Science class time will include instruction, coordinated activities, and hands-on labs at all levels. This class requires 5 hours of homework per week. Time spent varies according to grade level and students' abilities. Daily work on science assignments is encouraged. Parental oversight and assistance with assigned homework is required for all grade levels to ensure understanding of material and successful completion of work.
2nd through 8th grade classes will be assigned weekly homework for the other four days of school, including reading assigned pages in the textbook and completing work in their activity manual or resource material. Science should be incorporated into the daily home school schedule. Chapter review led by the parent during the week is necessary for the student to grasp all of the vocabulary and material, especially if the student will be tested.
Materials for the Science class can be purchased through the publishers or at The Homeschool Store.
