Jeannie Fulbright's science courses have received many accolades and awards as the best science books for homeschoolers. The series is designed for students in elementary through middle school and gives a solid science foundation, using time-tested, proven methods that enhance retention, unleash a child's love for learning and passion for science, while grounding them in their faith.
Each book uses the Charlotte Mason philophies of education: including a living, whole book approach to learning, as well as narration and notebooking. Living books engage the reader with words that inspire, not just inform. Whole books cover the subject in its entirety, rather than touching on elementary aspects of each field of science. Narration asks the students to tell back their learning in order to solidify their understanding; notebooking is an especially effective method for recording and retaining one's learning. All of these elements work together to create a course that produces students with science knowledge and understanding, not just memorization of science facts and figures.
The Notebooking Journals have been specially designed to increase the students' understanding of the subject by allowing them to creatively express their learning in their own words and drawings, giving them a template for completing the assigned activities. Included in these aesthetically pleasing journals are vocabulary work, Scripture copywork and lapbooking activities.
