This book covers the major structures of our solar system, starting with the sun and working towards Pluto. Along the way, the student will also learn about Earth s moon, the asteroid belt, and the Kuiper belt.

Exploring Creation with Human Anatomy and Physiology
Jeannie K. Fulbright
From head to toe, your child will encounter fascinating facts, engaging activities, intriguing experiments, and loads of fun as together you learn about the human body and how to keep it working according to God's design. After a brief history of medicine and a peek into cell structure and DNA, kids will take a fantastic voyage through each of their main physiological systems, including the skeletal, muscular, respiratory, digestive, circulatory, and nervous systems and more! They'll learn about nutrition and health, embryology, major organs, how their immune system is designed to protect them, and what makes each of us a unique creation of God. In addition, your children will enjoy various experiments and projects, such as testing the bacteria content around the house, finding their own blood type, creating a cell model from Jell-O and candy, and even building a stethoscope!

A Beka Book
Matter and Motion in God's Universe
Written in the perspective of the founders of modern science: the belief that God is the Creator of the universe and the Originator of its order, reason, and reality, and that science is one way for man to control and master the physical world for the benefit of mankind. Students begin their study with a section on astronomy, in which they learn how the heavens proclaim the glory of God. Several chapters introduce and reinforce the basic principles of matter and motion and lay the foundation for physics. Chapters on magnetism and electricity follow, and the text closes with a chapter on science versus the false philosophy of evolution.
