This question relates to a basic premise that the public school system has the latest revelation about what a child should be expected to know when. Children who have used Considering God’s Creation have tested well on the achievement tests, but we really need to consider an issue that is far more important. We need […]
We designed CGC to be pretty much self contained, so that even a missionary family in a remote location can use it without any additional resources. Most of the activities use items you have in your kitchen. For example, to explain the difference between pumice and obsidian, you would use an egg white. The egg […]
Considering God’s Creation was designed primarily for 2-7th grade children. However, there is some flexibility either direction. One of the reasons that Considering God’s Creation can be easily adapted to younger grades is that the lessons are done orally with music and activities. Also, the notebook pages are very visual so that even young children […]
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 […]
CGC is very adaptable! It may be used completely independent of any other resource. It may be used with any resources that you already have. In addition, it includes a list of recommended resources if you want to expand the lessons. For the older children who are doing the ‘Scientist Detective’ pages, we carry an […]

If your child has a good overview of earth and life science and is not yet ready for high school biology, etc., CGC would still provide structured opportunities to study any topic of interest in greater depth. In addition, using the Bible readings in each lesson, will help the child to understand more of the […]
No. It is primarily earth and life science. We do have several suggestions listed in “Additional Resources” for physical science.
Although CGC is designed primarily for 2nd grade to 7th grade, it can easily be adapted for younger as well as older children. The younger ones will need more help with the workbook pages, while the older ones (5th grade and up) will benefit from the additional challenges in the “Digging Deeper” section.
Considering God’s Creation an elementary earth and life science program that was born out of our desire to introduce our own children to the Creator through His creation. We wanted them to have more than just information and facts about the world around them, so that they could make some of the spiritual connections that […]
