Let your speech always be gracious, seasoned with salt,

(Colossians 4:6)

Inform, entertain, and persuade: using these three umbrellas as guidance, students will learn tools to construct a speech, present before an audience, and speak with confidence in this introductory speech class. Even the timidest student will build assurance as we practice together and support each other in our journey towards improved communication capabilities. We will practice reading and presenting in a variety of styles and incorporate games and other devices to assist in building skills, confidence and poise. Within each umbrella of speech, we will discuss how we can use our words and presentation skills to glorify God and represent Christ. We will also explore the importance of speech as both a right and a privilege of the American citizen. Students will enter this class with little to no experience in presentation and leave with confidence in their abilities to more thoughtfully inform, entertain, and persuade others using their new repertoire of skills.

Homework for this class will be minimal and will consist primarily of speech preparation activities. Time will be given most weeks for work to be completed during the class session under the guidance of the instructor.

Students will construct a portfolio to demonstrate learning in this class. Each student will receive a 3-ring binder on the first day of class that he or she should bring each week, along with a pencil and an excitement for learning!

UPPER ELEMENTARY SCIENCE, 6th - 7th

(Rotating curriculum approximately every 3 years)

55 minutes, 30 Weeks, Rebecca Wahl

THIS CLASS QUALIFIES FOR Co-op & Tutor CONTINGENCY PLANS

All About Animals!

For since the creation of the world, God’s invisible qualities – his eternal power and divine nature – have been clearly seen, being understood from what has been made, so that people are without excuse. (Romans 1:20)

King Phillip Came Over For Good Soup! If you knew this already, then you’ve got a head start on our study of animals this year in Upper Elementary Science. We’ll begin the year examining ways we classify animals and even start to learn a little Latin (but just a little).

God made a world full of neat animals – more than we can even cover in this one-year class. But we’re going to look at some of them and discover all sorts of wonderful ways God has revealed Himself through the animals He has made. From flying creatures to land animals, we’ll spend the year taking a look at a wide spectrum of His creation from the fifth and sixth days and learning to appreciate more just how amazing our God is as we see how meticulously He designed each of His creatures to do magnificent things.

We will learn in this class through a variety of activities, including fun and engaging labs, readings, short lectures, and activities. Students will learn how to: safely conduct labs independently, in pairs, and in groups; analyze results from a lab and extrapolate from the data; write a lab report in preparation for upper school science classes; set a homework schedule and accomplish goals on time; and study in preparation for tests.

Homework will be assigned each week and may include: a reading assignment with or without a corresponding written assignment, lab report, and/or studying for a test. You can expect around 1-2 hours each week.

Textbooks required for this course:

Apologia Exploring Creation with Zoology 1: Flying Creatures of the Fifth Day and

Apologia Exploring Creation with Zoology 3: Land Animals of the Sixth Day
