Who does not wonder at God’s magnificent Creation? So much of it is a mystery, but teaching science does not have to be!
Designed as an eighth grade course, Natural Science Mysteries from Paradigm Accelerated Curriculum covers Earth and life sciences, plus studies on the Periodic Table of the Elements and the solar system.
Each scientific concept is enhanced by adventure vignettes where young people help solve community mysteries by applying the scientific method of discovery and character traits of integrity, honesty, commitment, diligence, and kindness.
Students learn how virtues and personal responsibility upgrade moral character. The narrative, high-interest approach of this series engages students so they progress through comprehensive scientific material with clarity and engagement.
Students are exposed to scientific evidence which explores traditional and contemporary theories about the origin of life and the formation of our planet and universe. Texts allow the student to evaluate theories from a scientific and rational perspective.
Companion Activity Books walk the student through the text in chronological order. Selected questions help prepare for state academic assessment exams. Activity Books are applicable in homes, classrooms, or individualized learning centers where students progress through the course with interest, understanding, and content mastery.
