4th - 5th Grade (4-8th Group 1)

FEE: $ 75


Nutrition  (1 hour)


Six years ago my quest for better health went into high gear when I took on a mentor with 30 years of experience in the field.  I have taken her classes daily ever since remotely from home. It has been like a college education in nutrition.  The book I really love for kids is Nutrition 101. Using this resource for our class we will emphasize God's wonderful creation in making us the way we are to function in an amazing way. Did you know we are the only species to cry emotional tears?  We will learn about anatomy, cell function, DNA,  how to read a food label, and more. Knowing what foods actually do for difference body systems can give people life changing tools for themselves and their progeny. We will learn how what you eat now impacts the health of your children and grandchildren years from now. Deb Rayburn's book is a wonderful guide linking anatomy with nutrition, and fun activities for kids of all ages. We will prepare a few food items, and hand out fun recipes to try at home. I also will use Answers in Genesis materials that highlight our amazing bodies and how we are wonderfully and fearfully made.

TEACHER:  Amy Sauder

Amy ( Alberts) Sauder is a homeschool mom of 5 daughters. Her life before kids was a 20 year career in radio broadcasting and news. Amy worked at over 13 different radio stations in a news or other on-air capacity.  This instilled a propensity to search out and share information with people that could improve their lives, or even just their day!   Having grown up on a local dairy farm, she still is requested to fill in and milk cows from time to time.  Her oldest has graduated and attends the U of M St. Paul in Ag. Education, four at home are 16, 13, 11, and 5.

 Science of Water  (1 hour)


 This course will cover various properties of water.  We will study such properties as the molecular structure of water, surface tension, density, absorbency, diffusion, and wave action through hands-on activities and experiments. In the older class, we will also be learning about the scientific method.  There will be handouts, demonstrations, and discussions throughout the course.

TEACHER:  Lynn Kasprzyk

My name is Lynn Kasprzyk and I will be a new resident of Rochester, MN as of the end of August.  I have four children and 5 (soon to be 6) grandchildren. I have a BS degree in Secondary Education from Slippery Rock University with a major in mathematics and a concentration in science.  I have taught mathematics and science in a public school and in Christian schools for 11 years and I homeschooled my four children for 18 years. I have many interests which include skiing, horseback riding, exercising, sewing, and being involved in church ministries such as teaching Sunday school, helping in the missions program and going on missions trips, and ministering in ladies’ prisons.  

Bible, Drama, ACTION!   (1 hour)


This class is established to write the word of God on the hearts of kids.  We will select some power-packed, faith-filled scriptures, memorize them together (with laughter and FUN) , then allow each child to share their passage with the class as a monologue.  Each child will receive kind, loving and encouraging feedback to improve their delivery of God’s mighty, awesome words. We are going to be flexible, creative and allow the Holy Spirit to lead each child into the boldness that comes in believing and sharing His Truth.  Indeed, we are living in powerful times as we prepare for Christ’s 2nd Coming!

TEACHER:  Heather Schuster
