Middle School Abeka Earth and Space Science

Middle School Abeka Earth and Space Science



The Earth and Space science course is designed for 7th  and 8th graders who have not taken Earth Science. A completion of 6th grade level Physics and Chemistry is needed at the least.

From earthquakes and volcanoes to clouds and galaxies, show your child the features of God’s Creation here on earth as well as the Great Beyond with Science: Earth and Space!  We will be using the Abeka Earth and Space Science book which is designed to be used as an 8th grade science course for homeschool students. We will be teaching it as combined 7th and 8th grade course. This course guides your child through a study of geology, oceanography, meteorology, astronomy, and environmental science.   A thorough study of rocks, soil, and fossils will give your child ample proofs that this earth was created by God and not evolutionary processes. With Section and Chapter Reviews plus articles to defend Creation and 650 picture and diagrams, your child will complete 8th grade science with a detailed understanding of earth and space science.

Important Note about this Course:

We will be using the A Beka Earth and Space Science book. This book includes a chapter on the fossil record which follows the teaching that the earth is 10,000 years old. While we are all Christians in this co-op, we have a diverse range of doctrines represented in our group. The book is a wonderful book in that it is written from a Christian point of view, but it contains some material that is not consistent across all Christian doctrines. With that in mind, we will not be coving that chapter during our in-class time. If you want help covering this material at home, either using the book or with different supplemental material, I will make that available.


This class will include homework assignments from the companion activity book, several graded projects and periodic quizzes.
