This is a great environmental science study for students anywhere, while taking an adventure with us in the Sunshine State! This course will explore Florida animals, plants, flowers, trees, geography, geology, climate, weather, and is a good introduction to the science of ecology. Using the richly illustrated secular textbook Priceless Florida, this will be a great opportunity for the students to learn how to translate evolutionary interpretations into a Biblical worldview. Floridians will understand and appreciate their home state in a whole new way.
(Approximately 1 hour of homework per day).
A list of suggested field trips is offered for your family to enhance your Sunshine State Science adventure! Online fieldtrips and activities are assigned to further the student's experience (we recommend that parents accompany students with all internet activities).
Labs are not performed in the "Online Class Sessions". For lab credit the student must complete the suggested labs and lab write ups, as specified on the lab syllabus.
We now offer this class for families with both Middle and High School students in a combined format! Click below for details.
