“Where were you when I laid the foundation of the earth?”

—Job 38:4

The Foundations of Science introduces children to the wonders of the natural world in light of God’s providential care over creation.

Authored by Dr. Timothy Polnaszek, this eight-part series covers an extensive scope of scientific studies, from animals and plants, to the galaxies of outer space and the depths of the ocean, to cells and organisms, to the curiosities of chemistry and the marvels of our planet. Still more, it reveals the intricate order found beneath the surface of creation and chronicles many of the Church’s contributions to science throughout history.

Animals: Creatures of the Wild offers a tour of the animal kingdom and the habitats in which mammals, birds, amphibians, reptiles, insects, and fish live and thrive. Children will discover how animals find and hunt for food, how and why they live in concert with other animals, why they migrate or hibernate, and more.

In this companion workbook, elementary school children will have an additional resource to help them engage with the content and help them retain it.

    Very enjoyable, some challenging vocabulary

    Posted by Steph on Jul 25th 2023

    Attractive pictures, very in depth. The video lecture connects very well with our faith. I split the reading into two days for my younger students. I bought the workbook again for my older student to do independently. It's not necessary to get the video lecture or the audio. I chose to read it aloud as this was faster. I like how the end of the chapter teaches us about a saint. Some of the vocabulary is a little intense for younger students. My daughter remembered what was interesting to her such as the difference between amphibians and reptiles, ect. This course is perfect as a full year course K-3. You can do double th books for older students.
