Science 6

Melissa Futrell (Thursdays, 3rd period)

Description: This class will expand your student’s understanding of the world and lay a solid foundation for more challenging science classes in the years to come. BJU Science 6 emphasizes the importance of not only learning about science, but also developing a strong Christian worldview. Volcanoes, weather, classification systems, electricity, machines, and genetics are among the many topics to be explored this year. Homework will involve reading, completing review worksheets, taking tests, and occasionally preparing a project to share with the class. Each week we will solidify the material through discussion, activities, and labs. Come join us!
