Science for Little Hearts and Hands
Science for Little Hearts and Hands was created as an introduction to science for preschoolers through second grade. Older or younger children may enjoy it very much as well! We invite you to view the sample pages available on our website for further insights into the course and if it will be a good fit for your children.
Science for Little Hearts and Hands was created specifically with families who are teaching only children in 2nd grade or younger in mind. Although Science for Little Hearts and Hands could be completed for younger children in addition to completing our science units for older children, many families find it very easy to include younger children in the family-style learning of our science units so you only need to teach one course to all of your children. It’s up to you and how much time you have.
You will need one copy of the Parent Guide, one copy of The Big Book of Science Stories, and access to a device to watch videos. A supply list for activity supplies is included below and in the Parent Guide.
The Parent Guide will walk you through how to teach each lesson. Simply follow the instructions in the Parent Guide. Each lesson was written to take 20 minutes or less, but that time may vary if your child has further questions and now wants to explore additional activities.
Lesson length will vary greatly between children. Have the child do as much work each day as the child’s attention span will allow. You do not need to complete one lesson a day. You might do more or less than that. Look for cues of frustration or fatigue to help you know when to finish. The child will learn much from you as you display love, patience, and enthusiasm for learning. At this age, it’s important that the learning feels more like fun to the child than something forced or unpleasant.
The Parent Guide and The Big Book of Science Stories are both nonconsumable.
You only need to purchase one copy per family or group of up to 8 students. Additional copies must be purchased for larger groups, with one set per 8 students required for group use.
The videos are a large component of the course and skipping them is not recommended. Every other lesson includes a quick, engaging, and informative video that expands on the lesson topic. These can be streamed or downloaded.
No, the goal of our curriculum is not to teach doctrines specific to any particular Christian denomination but to teach general principles, such as honesty, hard work, and kindness.
Yes! Science for Little Hearts and Hands: Fields and Flowers is the first of three planned Science courses for preschool through second grade that will follow children through the younger years.
