Course Description

This history course will provide students with an invaluable starting point in their history education. Students will learn about the lives of leaders in Virginia’s history and their contributions to the Commonwealth. Students will also learn about basic map skills, economic concepts of goods and services, consumers and producers, and making economic choices. Additionally, students will learn about the traits of a good citizen and the importance of communities. Students will gain insights into a biblical worldview of history through this course and how it should affect their daily lives and actions.

This science course introduces students to basic science skills that will be built upon in years to come. Students will begin conducting simple experiments and be introduced to classifying plants and animals based on superficial characteristics. Emphasis is placed on the relationships among objects and their interactions. Students are expected to know the fundamental relationships between the sun and Earth and the relationship between seasonal changes and plant and animal activities. Students will also begin to develop an understanding of moving objects, critical natural resources, and how to be a scientist. Students will deepen their education through these areas with biblical integration throughout the course.
