Sample Weekly Schedule

The course is set up on a 32 week schedule with two lectures, two worksheets, 20 definitions, and one lab to complete each week. Every 8 weeks there is a Quarterly Review, which can be used as an exam for high school students. The lecture and lab videos average 20 minutes each. Labs can be completed hands-on but it is not required. Here is our recommended schedule but feel free to adjust for your family.









Engaging Video Lectures Increase Understanding



Featuring colorful pictures and graphics, Dr. Shormann teaches every lesson on a digital blackboard. During the lecture, students take notes and work problems with him, pausing and rewinding as needed. 

The video lecture has all the required information so there are no required reading assignments. The definitions, facts practice, video lecture, review questions, and video labs will provide ample opportunities to learn everything they need to know. 

With DIVE Earth Science, students will learn to wisely discern between scientific research and natural history research. DIVE Earth Science teaches students about the power of our God, who is powerful enough to create a universe in 6 calendar days! Biblical history is trusted as true history. Another goal of DIVE Earth Science is not to support current consensus views, but to teach students how to search for truth. We have much to learn about our past and present, and DIVE Earth Science aims to provide a solid education for the next generation of explorers!



Video Labs Spark Interest


The weekly video labs teach students everything from how to use Google Earth to how to build and fly a model rocket. Many lab activities include experiments that teach the student to use the scientific method.

 During the video lab, Dr. Shormann demos the lab procedure. Students work in their lab manual recording data, making calculations, etc. DIVE Earth Science Lab Manual


 At the end of each lab, the student grades their work using the video solutions. The student should grade their own work as this is part of the learning process.


While students can simply watch the video labs and complete the activity sheets in the included Lab Manual, Nature's Workshop has created a Lab Kit for DIVE Earth Science.  A lab supply list is included in the Teacher's Guide.





Middle School or High School Course
Typically recommended for 7th or 8th grade, this course can be modified for use as a high school course by administering the quarterly reviews as exams and adding quarterly reports on a related topic.


Optional: Lab Kit 

While students can simply watch the video labs and complete the activity sheets in the Lab Manual, Nature's Workshop has created a Lab Kit for DIVE Earth Science.  A lab supply list is included in the Teacher's Guide.



Lab Manual 
A printable PDF of the lab  manual is  included with your DIVE course.  For those who do not want to print the 118 pages at home, we sell a hard copy printed in full color and spiral bound with heavy covers and free USPS Priority Mail shipping to US addresses.  Learn More: DIVE Earth Science Lab Manual

  1. Exceptional

    Posted by Marissa Deerkop on 12th Aug 2021

    We love DIVE self-paced eLearning science course(s)! While the lab kit is optional, I highly recommend it...Lab day is our favorite day!

  2. son loves it

    Posted by Tara on 25th Oct 2019

    My 7th grade son is loving this course and learning a lot. And I enjoy the fact that it is auto-graded! Thank you DIVE!

  3. Very Pleased!

    Posted by April on 31st Mar 2019

    “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 VIDEO. 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!

  4. Top Notch Curriculum

    Posted by Hannah Fraley, PhD on 15th Feb 2018

    As a professor myself PhD-prepared, I am SO grateful to have come across this amazing top-notch curriculum for my middle-schooler who I homeschool. We struggled to find math and science curriculum that is cutting edge and rigorous until we found DIVE. I count it as a privilege that our son has access to a PhD-prepared scientist teaching the lessons, such as Dr. Shormann. Homeschool should be cutting edge, no less rigor than other types of schooling public or private. Our son has a learning disability (dyslexia) also and Dr. Shormann has unlocked our child who now says he wants to be a scientist or mathematician. Without Dr. Shormann's curriculum our son would not have access to his full potential nor would he be now on an AP math and science track for high school.. Thank you Dr. Shormann for creating DIVE and for your dedication to high quality rigorous curriculum for homeschoolers!
    Thank You,
    Dr. Hannah E. Fraley, PhD

  5. Fantastic Earth Science course!

    Posted by Michelle on 16th Nov 2017

    Personally, I think most of what is taught in earth science courses is boring BUT Dr. Shormann makes this topic so much more interesting. He's very engaging and I absolutely love how he always ties what he's teaching back to the truth of scripture. This is a challenging course and I was nervous that my 7th grader would struggle but he's doing very well and I believe it is because of the way the course is laid out and the fantastic way Dr. Shormann teaches. Finding his courses has been a great blessing!

  6. DIVE Earth Science

    Posted by Unknown on 6th Dec 2015

    Great course for my 7 th grader. She's really learning how to take notes & study for upper level courses. I think it's great preparation for high school.

  7. Igniting a passion for a career in science

    Posted by Bobbie Wallace on 13th Nov 2015

    We tried another curriculum, and it did not ignite my children with a passion for Science like DIVE has done. My daughter looks forward every day to learning something new about the earth, rocks and minerals. She now wants to be a seismologist, and the lectures, although challenging, and the note taking not her favorite, she is eager to learn. I especially am very grateful for the biblical approach, as I hear Dr. Shoreman talking about how great is our need to learn about the things God has given to us so we can take care of those things. Thank you Dr. Shoreman and DIVE staff. My daughter says "I recommend it because it has a great hands on program for the visual learners. Also .. it's good!".

  8. Well Organized

    Posted by Deborah on 20th Sep 2014

    This program is very well laid out and organized. My son really looks forward to his Science class. The independent nature of this program makes it very easy for him to stay on top of his lessons. The automatic grading makes my life easier as well. The diagrams and pictures are well done. It is a challenging and engaging program! Thank you!

  9. Wonderful alternative for science course

    Posted by Helen on 12th Oct 2013

    My son likes the organization and lectures. It is not boring, and structured very straight forward and thoughtful, using review questions, digital flash cards, etc. I appreciate that it is God and Bible centered and based. Thank you!

  10. Wonderful Science Program

    Posted by Unknown on 1st Dec 2012

    My son really didn't care for Science until we started this program. I find that the more he is challenged the more he is determined to succeed and this course was just what he needed. This course is presented well and is a great aid to homeschooling.
