2023-2024 Course Descriptions
Kindergarten/1st Grade (Kathy Anderson)
Teacher's Aid (Lee Anderson)
Fall Focus: Seven Continents
We will be taking a look at the seven continents of the world that God created. We will learn about the geography, animals, and the people who live there.
1st/2nd Grade (Gisella Likens)
The more we dive into science the more we learn about who God is and how He cares for us! This year we will explore God's creation by learning all about weather and seasons as well as three states of matter. We will conduct exciting experiments, make observations, and draw conclusions based on our observations. Throughout the year we will also focus on the elements of a story, beginning writing skills, and beginning grammar. We will draw closer to the Lord as we spend time in His word through creative Bible studies. This will surely be an exciting year of growing and learning as the body of Christ.
3rd-High School Grade Rotation
Creative Writing (Chris Smart)
“Ugh! I hate writing.”
Does your student ever tell you that? In Mrs. Smart’s Creative Writing Class, students learn to love writing as they discover that they actually CAN write! Students begin by retelling fables in their own words and adding “dress-ups” to make their composition sound better. This is the basis of the Institute for Excellence in Writing program (IEW). As these words are incorporated,
more stylistic techniques are introduced. We end up writing about many fun subjects from the wild and crazy to the important “stuff.” Both eager and reluctant writers truly enjoy this class, and many a skeptic has become an author. Join us as we create fabulous fables, colorful descriptions, terrific tales, and influential essays; one never knows what we’ll do next! Bring your favorite pen or pencil AND your imagination as we explore the wonderful world of writing!
Science through the Lens of Photography (Diann Holmes)
It's not Rocket Science....Oh but it is!
This fall we will explore the idea of being a Rocket Scientist! Are you cut out to go into space? How do you feel about heights? Small spaces? How do you react in a crisis?
Have no fear! If you are not ideal astronaut material, you can still be a Rocket Scientist!
Join in the fun as we briefly explore our solar system to give us perspective of how vast and awesome it really is! We will learn about the concept of gravity and simulate the conditions astronauts must live under wile in space like weightlessness, space food and space toilets!
We have so many questions to answer! How does a space craft go into orbit? How does it land on the moon? How does it get back to earth?
As Rocket Scientists, we will try to find the answers! We will build three different rockets to help us understand the concepts of rockets power, drag, and what it takes to hit your target.. This may entail some friendly competition a we shoot our rockets toward a moon target or pick things up with the "robotic" arms as we build. There will be plenty of fun experiments and activities to keep you wanting to know more about our solar system and what is beyond it!
Lessons will be enhance by photography assignments that will challenge creativity and solidify the Rocket Science concepts we learn in class.
Biblical Worldview and Apologetics (Breezy Lewis)
Elementary grades will be covering the basics of what makes up a worldview, while going into detail on what is contained in a Biblical worldview. We will study the Biblical view of people, the universe and morality and learn about learn about God's plan for redeeming humanity and how it is different from every other worldview. Middle school and up will be studying things such as theology, philosophy, ethics, and biology, while evaluating how different worldviews view each other. In every grade, students will begin to understand and be able to logically and respectfully defend the Biblical worldview and be equipped to stand when confronted with views that are not based in truth.
American Foundations 1780-1910 (Cliff Smart)
We will explore the “overlooked” period of American History following the ratification of the Constitution up to the early rumblings of the first World War. To start we’ll discuss the establishment of America’s first government then the second invasion of the British on American soil. Next America becomes a world power only to be embroiled in a Civil War that nearly tears it apart. Was our nation forever changed as a result? Are we still seeing the consequences even now? Next we’ll explore the growth and prosperity of the late 1800’s just before plunging into “the war to end all wars.” Through all of this we’ll be studying the cultural and historical factors that led to these events and what effects they had on American society, government, and politics. Our activities will be grade-specific with interesting assignments to re-create the events and inspire young patriots with our nation’s rich heritage. Come along, you’re invited to join us!
