Science at Northlake Christian Lower School

Our Philosophy of Science encompasses the belief that God is the Creator of all that exists, and science is the study of His creation. Our purpose as Christian educators is to facilitate the exploration and discovery of the Divine Order and structure of the universe. Our science curriculum is planned to equip the lower school student to function in harmony with God’s order through observation and experimentation, challenging him to higher order thinking. By acknowledging the wisdom of God, the student will recognize the responsibility to be a steward of His perfect design.

Science a Closer Look by McGraw-Hill is utilized in grades 3 and 4 with national science lab modules within our Lower School Science Lab located on campus. Reading Wonders offers a holistic approach to teaching social sciences through informational texts and non-fiction in grades K-2.

Here are some pictures of our 3rd grade students taking advantage of our Science Lab as they explored the importance of leaves.

Scholastic Book Orders

I suppose after completing this doctorate, because I simply cannot take on any more research at this time (eyes crossing), I will make my millions researching how and then begin a new Christian book club for children which will include all of the literary classics in conjunction with wholesome, children’s books. Until then, we will move in this direction so as not to deprive our children of a love for learning and reading.

Please read the letter that is attached to this email.
