Homeschool Science Programs

These homeschool science programs present a study of our world from a Christian creationist point of view.

Jeannie Fulbright’s Exploring Creation Series immerses you and your children in botany, zoology and astronomy.

These homeschool science programs rely heavily on Charlotte Mason’s learning technique of narration as well as the wonderful creative use of notebooking. Each book is designed to be a year long study.

We recommend that the Elementary Apologia be used along with the
Footprints On Our Land – South Africa’s Heritage course.
