Review: Considering God’s Creation


I have had the opportunity to review a wonderful natural science curriculum written from a biblical perspective.

Grade: Adaptable for grades 2nd – 7th

The program is set up with lots of fun learning through games, experiments, poems, songs, crafts and notebook pages.


CGCCost: Only  $29.95 – includes Teacher’s manual, student book and audio CD for a year’s worth of science (or more). 

For ease of use, buy an additional student book packed full of 272 pages for only $13.95.  You may copy the student book for each of your kids, but having the second book for such a cheap price is much easier than copying so many pages.

My thoughts:

I really enjoyed the hands-on approach to Considering God’s Creation.  It’s adaptable to multi-age children. The projects keep the family learning together.  I enjoyed the author’s biblical approach to science as well.  CGC is a very affordable, family-friendly, natural science program that takes a year to complete if you do one lesson per week.

My girls loved the songs and experiments best.  I enjoyed how the Christian author’s, Sue and Betty, did all the research for me and filled the program with lots of prepared notebook pages.  The projects are simple too - for both the kids and mom!

How do you teach the lessons?  There are 36 lessons.  Each lesson can be taught in one week for an entire school year.  If you children are younger,  you may take several weeks for some lessons and the program can take 2 or 3 years to complete.  I did several lessons that took two weeks each.

If you children are older, you can use the DIGGING DEEPER for ideas to keep them challenged.  There are also 12 crosswords for review or testing older children.

  1. We have really enjoyed using Considering God's Creation :)

  2. We love the CD! The way the tie in science and Bible reminds me of MFW K. Haven't used the books yet, though. Haven't found the time!!

    BTW, *LOVE* the new blog design! :) How's your summer going? How's your hubby? Email me! :)

  3. Forgot to mention...try "wet" erase markers for your laminated sheets.
