Neither! Traditional textbook science programs are primarily reading assignments which focus on science vocabulary and comprehension. For younger or slower readers, this can really bog them down and keep them from enjoying science. The non-traditional “hands-on” science programs have a lot of creative ideas, but they often call for materials that are hard to find and require a tremendous amount of work on the part of the teacher. Considering God’s Creation uses materials you have at home, provides activities and gives directions for the child to have creative interaction with scientific information. In addition, each student creates a beautiful notebook of science projects that is simple to store and impressive to show to family and friends.
