This popular elementary science series was originally created when Jeannie Fulbright, author and
homeschool mom, was looking for a quality elementary science series that was creation-based
using the Charlotte Mason approach. When she didn't find the curricula she was looking for she
decided to create her own.
These books use the classical and Charlotte Mason methodology including narration and note
booking to develop critical thinking, logical ordering, retention, and record keeping.
Since the Charlotte Mason method is employed, every lesson is organized with a narrative,
notebook work, an activity, and a project. The student notebook is emphasized in the lessons.
Activities and projects bring the lessons to life and use simple household items. The books come
from a strong creationist viewpoint, including sections called "Creation Confirmation" and
Scripture interwoven throughout the book.
Lesson topics include:
Our Solar System
Clocks, Calendars, and Seasons
Astronomers and Astronauts
Solar Flares, Auroras, and Sunspots
Rotation and Revolution
The Moon’s Phases
A Comet’s Orbit
Apologia Astronomy, 2nd edition, and the
