  • Art (1st-4th) (3rd period)

    Art has been a medium through which people have not only documented, but also shaped history, science and society—both past and future. A culture’s art gives us a peek into civilizations through the ages: Insights into their world, clothing, food, what they love and most valued, their education, homes and habits. Through art based on history, cultures and geography, students gain an easily graspable reference, while at the same time giving fuel for the imagination and creativity. During this year we will be exploring various works of art based on the timeline of history from explored in our Arrow History classes: Renaissance, Reformation & Growth of the Nations.  Our week to week focus will correspond with the countries being studied and with history as we classically walk through the timeline of 1450-1700.  Each week will be exciting and unique, as we travel the world together appreciating the elements and fundamentals of art, while working on art projects that bring each child into various cultures around God’s amazing world & growing in their artistic skills.

This class provides an excellent opportunity for students to develop and practice effective study skills.

  • LEGO Boost: Build-Code-Play (2nd-5th)(1st period)

    LEGO Boost is the next level coding. Using tablets, the students build a LEGO Boost robot, learn code placement and connect via Bluetooth. Once connected students work with motors, color and distance sensors to engage in educational play. The Boost course is designed for all skill levels.

    Expectations: No homework
    Teacher: Michael Callahan

  • Science & Technology- Machines & Why They Work (1st-4th) (5th period)

    Students discover the science & technology of engineering principles for simple machines. While building LEGO Technic models using gears, levels, pulley systems, wheels, axles, and inclined planes, students also explore wind and solar energy.  Teacher: Michael Callahan- Rocket Science for Kids

  • EV3 Robotics: Design-Code-Activate (4th+) (3rd period)

    Students discover and explore a skill challenge in creating robot design and attachments. The class will complete several team challenges using provided laptops to code the Mindstorm EV3 platform, LEGO Technic elements, and several interactive sensors. Each challenge allows all skill levels to learn and develop knowledge and confidence in problem solving.

    Expectations: No homework
    Teacher: Michael Callahan

  • Biology (8th-10th)

    *Exploring Creation with Biology is designed to be the student’s first high school science and is a college-prep course that provides a detailed introduction to the methods and concepts of general biology. Heavily emphasizing the vocabulary of biology, it provides the student with a strong background in the scientific method, the five-kingdom classification scheme, microscopy, biochemistry, cellular biology, molecular and Mendelian genetics, evolution, dissection, and ecosystems. It also provides a complete survey of the five kingdoms in Creation. Students who take and understand this course will be very well-prepared for a tough university biology course. This class provides an excellent opportunity for students to develop and practice effective study skills.

  • Nature Study (1st-3rd) (3rd period)

    The goal for nature study is for it to be an organic learning environment. We will focus on different units study, (trees, flowers & plants, weather, etc.) but ultimately each week we will spend our time on a nature walk observing what is around us.  After our observations, we will spend time in class documenting what we discovered.  The children will choose what they want to write and/or draw in their journal.  It will reflect their own learning process.  Some weeks we will have an activity or a book to read to expand our understanding.  At home each week there will be reading assignments from our text, The Storybook of Science.  It is a living book on science and it will be fun for the kids (and for you as well!).

  • Physical Science (7th-9th)

    Exploring Creation with Physical Science discusses such topics as the atmosphere, the hydrosphere, weather, the structure of the earth, environmentalism, the physics of motion, Newton’s Laws, gravity, and astrophysics. Not only is this a science class, emphasis is also on study skills.
