Earth Logic (Earth Sciences for the Logic Stage) is a inquiry based, hands-on earth science curriculum for middle school students. It is created to provide teachers with the tools and inspiration to engage their students in meaningful, hands-on science and service learning experiences through tangible curriculum, shared resources, and real-world contexts. This secular curriculum was field tested in the public school classroom and modified for the homeschool or co-op setting.
Earth Logic is comprised of three disciplines (Geology, Weather & Climate, and Astronomy). The units can stand alone or can be combined for a complete academic year curriculum.

A very flexible program; there is no daily schedule or checklist. Instead, there are lesson plans and hands-on activities to demonstrate the science being learned. Each lesson begins with objectives, a list of needed materials, and an overview. You’ll find lots of scientific vocabulary and diagrams in the lessons. Most lessons have additional websites to explore for further information. Some lessons have a list of good living books to read and extension activities. Each lesson is quite different from the other. Eva has done a good job of tailoring the activities to the information rather than following an arbitrary pattern. ~ Jimmie Lanley
