Capping Our Lady of Victory’s elementary-level science program is Science and Living in God’s World, 8. Continuing in much the same manner — with a similar format — as last year’s science course, this year’s topics are arranged and covered so as to afford the student a good general grounding in a variety of topics before advancing to high school science. Specifically, the 7th and 8th grade science course are a more rudimentary introduction to many of the topics that will be covered in-depth in the Physical Science course offered in the OLVS 9th grade curriculum. This year’s topics include the study of animals and the Animal Kingdom; human physiology and anatomy, with the emphasis on the respiratory and nerve systems; energy and its many forms; and machines and the work they do. The Science and Living in God’s World 8 Student Quiz Booklet and a combination Answer Key to both the Text and Quiz Booklet are available.
These texts are hard bound, cloth covered, illustrated. For Grades 2 through 8, they include how God is involved in all science because He is the Creator of all things. In early grades students will study the senses, plants, animals, rocks and soil, the sun, planets, and the universe. Upper grades will cover many of the same subjects, but in more depth. They will also learn about electricity, how changes occur in matter, the respiratory system, energy and its many forms, gravity, and motion. Skills will be learned in using the scientific way to solve problems, and students will learn a new way of looking at the wonderful world into which Gods has put us.
