All things bright and beautiful,
All creatures great and small,
All things wise and wonderful:
The Lord God made them all.

Learning entails taking the time to explore, to dig deeper. Inspiring our students to approach the various disciplines of study from a Christian worldview is one of our challenges as educators. Whether examining the anatomy of a flower or delving into the nuances of a literary work, studying creation in light of the Creator will inevitably result in wonder and awe.
Second graders cut apart a huge sunflower in science lab to understand plant anatomy. They took cross sections of a stem to see how it acts as the conduit to distribute water.
Kindergarten students explored the differences between reptiles and amphibians. They learned about the importance of moisture in the skin of particular animals and how God designed each one with a specific body plan in mind.
Geometry students demonstrate that good planning and design involve well-developed math skills when they created their own cities in a recent project.
Second grade students recreated the Israelites’ march around the city of Jericho on the school campus.
