In elementary science this year students will be studying swimming creatures . We will wonder at God's designs in the amazing swimming animals He formed from the tiny to the massive. Each week a set of review questions will be sent out that covers all the material the students learn in class to reinforce what they have learned. The tutorial is a combination of hands-on and participatory lecture with the main goal being not only to learn facts, but to light a fire of curiosity about the world around us. A secondary goal is to expose the students to scientific vocabulary, language, and thought processes. Each year we study a different area of life science so that if students attend from first to sixth grade they will have a firm foundation of vocabulary and knowledge on entering middle school.
