Product Description

 

The Self-Paced eLearning Course is recommended over the CD-ROM: Learn More

   

This course trains children to enjoy God's great Earth while equipping them to stand against evolutionism and Old-Earth superstitions that infect natural history displays at most museums and geologic wonders like the Grand Canyon. It covers four major areas: Earth Science Basics, Flood Geology, Limnology (Freshwater Ecosytems) and Oceanography, and Astronomy and Meteorology. In addition to all the components on the CD, our new Self-Paced eLearning Course features interactive assignments,  auto-grading, and grade recording.

  1. Finally - the Christian based Earth Science curriculum I've wished for!

    Posted by April on 8th Dec 2014

    I had given up on finding a Christian-based Earth Science curriculum for my 9th grader that didn't require me to struggle to teach it myself, until a friend discovered DIVE. There are great, beautifully illustrated, Christian-based Earth Science curriculums out there, but unless you have a science background, it can be difficult to teach it yourself when you get to the upper grades. We especially struggled with the lab experiments. We would be all excited when the box of interesting-looking, colorful (and expensive) lab supplies arrived, but would soon be bogged down in trying to follow detailed instructions we couldn't figure out. DIVE Earth Science COMES WITH A TEACHER giving the lecture and demonstrating the labs while giving step by step lab instructions on CD ROM. The suggested weekly schedule breaks the lessons down into digestible pieces that don't overwhelm the student. The student learns to take notes during a lecture - a crucial skill they will need to have in college. They are encouraged to use their notes to take the review quizzes and they quickly learn that the better notes they take, the better they do on the quiz! The curriculum is affordable - $80. Lab supplies have to be purchased separately, but the good thing is that the teacher says you can do as many or as few of the experiments as you want or can afford because they can watch the experiments on the video. Of course, you are encouraged to do as many as you are able since we do learn more by doing. Overall, I have been very pleased with this curriculum and highly recommend it!

  2. Your Earth Science Curriculum is terrific!

    Posted by Debbie on 22nd Jun 2012

    I used your Earth Science CD-ROM and I love it. It is easy to use, the grading calculator is such a lifesaver for a mom with 5 kids, just plug in the grade and move on, the grade is there at the click of a mouse. My student loved doing the lesson each day and answering the questions right on the computer with immediate feedback at the end of the review questions.
