HOMESCHOOL REVIEW CREW: Our Review of Big Bible Science

     My kids have always enjoyed learning Science through experiments.  They like hands on activities and it helps them to remember what concept they are going over.  Recently we were given the opportunity to receive and review Big Bible Science from Christian Focus and the kids have been having a lot of fun learning while experimenting.  

     This book is full of many learning activities for ages 7-11, but my 14 year old enjoyed many of them also. You will begin reading with an introduction to let you know what will be taught and how this book will stir your child's imagination as you go.  This is designed for homeschoolers, but I feel anyone could use this book.  The experiments are not difficult and gathering the items you need is easy.  Most of the things needed were right here in our home.

     After the intro, you will read how to make the most out of each lesson and what the chapter components are. Next there is a page of safety rules that will keep your children safe while the experiments are completed.  I enjoyed the section that talked about Notebooking.  So beneficial for students learning science concepts.  I also love that is is based on the BIBLE!  Each chapter focuses on the Biblical Science.  Your kids will learn God's Word right along side of scientific laws and theories. 

     There are 21 chapters and each include a few activities to reinforce what is being taught.  At the end of the book you will get to read through quite a few mini biographies of Scientist such as Benjamin Franklin and Isaac Newton.   This book is packed full of so much learning in just 95 pages. 

     I want to share a few of the experiments my kids did. 

     This one focused on Newton's Second Law of Motion.  In this experiment they were learning about acceleration and mass.  They found that the more mass something has the more destruction they cause on the other end.

     The next one they did was on Newton's Third Law of Motion.  They proved that for every action there is an equal and opposite reaction by doing the balloon launch experiment.  

     The final one I want to share is their experiment with the Water Cycle.  Here they learned that a dish with two teaspoons of water left in a warm light will evaporate much quicker than one left in shade.  

     Let's just say we have a lot fun with this book so far and we will continue to use it this summer.  I am excited to get to the chapters on the body.  Those have some great little activities to do.
