Grades 3rd - 6th
The Truth in Science curriculum is designed to strengthen the student's faith and enhance their relationship with God, while allowing them to be academically sound in the areas of science and objective reasoning. This is accomplished by combining the Truth in Science curriculum with existing textbooks to teach empirical knowledge through a secular approach while simultaneously teaching Biblical worldview and all 18 tenets of creation found in the Bible. The curriculum is designed to teach about God's awesome creation through solid scientific principles and to help the student discern the differences between true science and gross secular speculation not supported by facts.
Every day our students are being bombarded from all aspects of the American culture with influences that minimize the authority of the Bible in their thinking. Christian education must make every effort to reconnect true scientific thought with the Biblical worldview. The Truth in Science curriculum provides a fascinating exposure to scientific concepts that also honor our Creator.
