Science in the Ancient World is the second book in an elementary science series that explores scientific concepts through the lens of history. These lessons can be used for students in grades K-6, as they are based on experiments and activities, and feature three levels of review for parents to choose from.
The course covers the scientific work of natural philosophers who lived from about 600 BC to the early AD 1500s. While concentrating on what the ancient scientists got right, it also notes things they concluded incorrectly, because sometimes mistakes can lead to better understanding of nature.
This course explores a wide range of topics including human anatomy, medicine, optics, heliocentrism, geocentrism, sound, music, magnets, how steam is used to generate power, the motion of objects through a medium, combustion, levers, pulleys, plant growth, plant anatomy, tree ring dating, the atmosphere, astronomy, the basics of graphing, plastics, density, water flow, friction, and erosion. Students also learn that most of the great scientists who lived during this time period were devout Christians who studied science because they wanted to learn about God by studying His creation.
