Well-known science author Dr. Jay L. Wile presents science principles within a context that blends art, history, and other subjects to create a fascinating science curriculum that appeals to all students. This Berean Builders curriculum is perfect for capturing the interest and imagination of students who favor the humanities over science.
Science in the Ancient World is the second book in a multi-level elementary science series that uses history as a guide to teach science concepts. To engage students in grades K-6, the lessons are built around an activity and contain three levels of review questions, so you can adjust the curriculum to various learning abilities and different ages.
