Great Science Adventures  (Common Sense Press)

Developed by Dinah Zike, M.Ed and Susan Simpson (creator of Learning Language Arts Through Literature)

Great Science Adventures is a hands-on science program that includes activities for ages throughout the elementary years. The benefit to this is that it can be used with children of different ages and you can begin with any book/program you wish. Because there are activities for primary, junior and intermediate students it is not grade specific. This is an interactive and very cost-effective program!

Each book/program contains 24 lessons so if you are working at the program regularly you can likely complete two or more books in a year. Alternatively, you can use just one or two books and spends any extra time expanding on the information with other resources or activities.

Choose from:

Great Earth Science Studies

Discovering Earth’s Landforms and Surface Features

Discovering the Ocean

Discovering the World of Space

Great Life Science Studies

Discovering the Human Body and Senses

The World of Insects and Arachnids

The World of Plants

The World of Vertebrates



The Young Explorer’s Series is Apologia’s K-6 Creation based science curriculum and combines “conversationally-written instruction, hands-on activities and interactive notebooking with an inquisitiveness into God’s Creation to turn you young learner into a young explorer.”
