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.

  1. Very Pleased

    Posted by Kimberly S Ayers on 12th Sep 2012

    I am very happy with DIVE Earth Science.
    I was able to get my son started in a matter of minutes. It was planned out, organized and had very good instructions on how to get started. The material is easily understood and manageable. It is a computer based curriculum that I can afford without compromising quality. It is God centered and honoring. I am very thankful for the program.

  2. Excellent tool for homeschooling.

    Posted by Mardie on 10th Sep 2012

    My 14 year old son uses DIVE into science as his science lessons. It is the only subject that he actually looks forward too each day.
    It is excellent in that is all computer based and we love that it has the Christian view on everything. It is very informative and interesting.
    Excellent if you are looking for a science resource for your homeschooled child..

  3. Excellent Science Course

    Posted by Debbie on 22nd Jun 2012

    This is the most awesome science course I have seen for Earth Science. It is jam-packed with interesting facts and beautiful photographs. As a mom it is easy to use, and the grading is done for you so you always know where your student stands. My student really enjoyed doing the work because it was on the computer. The immediate feedback when she got an answer wrong really helped her pay better attention.
