Your young explorer will begin this course with an overview of our cosmic address in the observable universe and then grow in the knowledge of what, in the entire universe, makes Earth special and capable of sustaining life.

An awareness of the world will develop as students interact with the geosphere, hydrosphere, atmosphere, and biosphere of the Earth. By digging deeper into the many different layers of the Earth and the cycles that renew the face of the Earth, they will acquire not only wisdom that will endure for a lifetime but also an appreciation for our Creator.

What is the Daily Schedule for Earth Science?

We have provided a detailed schedule for Earth Science in the front of each Notebooking Journal and Junior Notebooking Journal. This schedule specifically outlines what to read and what activities to complete.

In keeping with the other titles in the Young Explorer Series, the schedule is similar. On average, you should expect to spend about two weeks per lesson. There are 14 lessons in Exploring Creation with Earth Science, so the entire course takes about 28 weeks to complete. Families are encouraged to adapt the schedule to fit their needs. Since most school years are longer than 28 weeks, there is plenty of time to fit in family holidays and breaks as needed.
