In Science 4, homeschoolers will begin the year with an examination of our solar system.  They will learn about the earth's orbit around the sun, the moon's orbit around the earth, and the seven planets with which we share our solar system.  After this engaging study, homeschool students will move on to an analysis of different biomes and ecosystems that allow the endless variety of living organisms to coexist in an unending circle of life.  Throughout this course, we will reinforce the belief that our natural resources need to be maintained and cared for in order to support human and animal life on the earth.
