For K-8Elemental Science provides lesson plans and teaching schedules, while relying on outside books (published by Usborne, DK and others) for the bulk of the science content. Elemental Science offers either a classical or living books approach to teaching science. Though the author is a Christian, she does not include a religious viewpoint in the materials. Elemental Science includes books that come from an evolutionary standpoint.

For high schoolElemental Science offer live online courses in biology and physical science.  These courses are two semester courses which meet twice weekly (beginning in August and running through December and then picking up for the second semester in January) with a live teacher in a classroom and lecture/discussion time. The course also includes homework, quizzes, and tests which are graded and the student receives a semester course grade for their work. The required text for the course is Miller & Levine's Biology, which presents a thorough investigation of the topic, including significant coverage of evolution. More details about this text can be found above.

We are living in a time when the big questions about faith and science can be both fascinating and challenging. Biologos provides us with a "safe space" to explore the complexities in the confidence that all truth--including that which comes from the serious study of "the book of nature"-- is God's truth.
