We've teamed up with Pastor Josh Watson again (Unearthing the Bible) to create a fascinating study of the marvelous work God has created in the heavens.
"The heavens declare the glory of God, and the sky above proclaims his handiwork." Psalm 19:1
Our homeschool astronomy for upper-elementary to middle school grades is video-based (streaming or DVD) with an integrated workbook, just like our best-selling Introductory Science. The Astronomy: God's Universe Level A track includes 66 lessons, with over 7 hours of content, and Level B features 95 lessons, with over 11 hours of content. Each Level is presented in an easy-to-follow, 36-week schedule that is great for independent study.
In both Levels, students learn about the solar system and planets before venturing deeper into space to explore the stars, galaxies, nebula and more that God has created. Along the way, a special focus is given to discussing the merits of the big bang and creation origin models to clearly show that - scientifically - the big bang model fails while the creation model is consistent with astronomical observations. Level B students encounter more detailed discussions in select topics such as binary stars, dark matter and energy, relativity and more.
We generally recommend the Level A course for ages 10-13, or students in grades 5-7, and the Level B course for ages 12+, or grades 7-9. However, these are only our guidelines. When selecting the right Level for your student(s), consider their reading level and critical thinking. The free course preview and Workbook samples can also help you choose the appropriate Level. If you have multiple students and will need Level A and Level B, simply purchase a Level B bundle and add additional Level A Workbooks and Answer Key as needed.
