Helpful Info

1. From Your Student Dashboard  

To open up your student dashboard, go to the top right of the black “Registered Courses” bar.  There is tiny blue print that says “Expand All”.  Click this and everything will expand out.

Registered Courses is a Gateway to the Entire Website

If you look at the box that has “Registered Courses” at the top, you’re in an area that will navigate you around the site. If you click on “First Timer Curriculum” or “Second Timer Curriculum”, you will instantly be there.

If you click on the arrow next to “First Timer Curriculum” or “Second Timer Curriculum” and then click on the Global Topic of Sound or Fluid Dynamics, every single lesson of the global topic will spring out in a drop down menu.  You can click on the lesson you desire and it will take you there.

You can also navigate from the top menu bar.

2.  From The Main Menu

Hover over “My Curriculum” in the top menu bar.  Select the course you wish.

Download the Student Module..

Follow the lesson by clicking on the blue, hyperlinked text.  Record student work on printed copy and store in notebook.


1. Regular quizzes

Pay careful attention to the lesson, then take the quiz at the bottom of the page.

You can only take the quiz once.

2. Essay quizzes

Pay careful attention to the lesson, then take the quiz at the bottom of the page.

Some essay quizzes have multiple boxes to fill in. If you only need to fill in 1 or 2, leave the others empty. This won’t have an effect on your score.  Your instructor will probably grade these personally.

DO NOT SUBMIT THE QUIZ WITHOUT FILLING IN AT LEAST ONE BOX.  You’ll get a 0 for the quiz if you don’t fill in any box.

3. Digging Deepers or Gold Digs Quizzes

These quizzes can be quite long. DD’s are 20 questions.  GD’s are 50 questions long.

The suggested way to do both the “Gold Digs” of Fluid Dynamics and the “Digging Deepers” of Sound is to do the worksheet first, then sit down another day and do the quiz. (The “Worksheet” may be accessed through the button that says “Worksheets”.  Print it in color or black and white. Hole punch it and keep it in your CWS notebook.)

YOU CANNOT DO A PART OF THE QUIZ AND COMPLETE IT AT ANOTHER TIME. THE ENTIRE QUIZ MUST BE DONE IN ONE SITTING.  Completing the worksheets at a leisurely pace ahead of time makes this an easy task. (The questions on the worksheets exactly correspond with the quiz questions for most questions.)

To open up your student dashboard, simply  go to the top right of the black “Registered Courses”.  There is tiny blue print that says “Expand All”.  Click this and everything will expand out.

To see your test scores, look on the dashboard and click the arrow next to the course on your student dashboard. Your quiz results are listed at the bottom

Using CWS as a Supplement

CWS can be used a supplement too!

Here’s a brief description of the different lessons components included in each Global Topic.

There are 8 Core Videos (CV’s) for each Global Topic Introduction.  Some CV’s are mild in the amount of information they present and some are very detailed.

You can watch the videos and fill in the blanks on the worksheets you can print. Then you can take the quiz.  Or you can watch the videos then take the quizzes and skip the worksheets. You can choose!

Once you have submitted a quiz, the quiz cannot be retaken.  


We encourage Field trips, especially those as a family.  See the “Lesson Directions” at the top right of the lesson.

We have many experiments for each Global topic.  Take your pick!  

We encourage monthly collections for students of all ages.  Some of us took Botany in the University and had to compile extensive plant collections of flowers, leaf types, bark types etc.  It opened our eyes to see so many things in the world around us!  You never grow too old for a good science collection! 

Collections like shells, succulents, rocks, bones, flowers (living), etc. can have quite a ministry to the heart of the love and beauty of God to anyone from 4-99.  There is always at least one collection in each Global Topic. (You can “grow” a collection, ie cacti, succulents, flowers, etc.)

William Carey had quite a love of gardening and planted a beautiful spot next to his home in India.  It brought him a great deal of rest, peace and joy. 

Cam Townshend, the founder of Wycliffe Bible Translators had a vegetable garden mixed with a whole lot of other plants and trees.  This beautiful garden in a dusty remote Mexican village opened the door for a wide ministry to the villagers he lived with and was instrumental in forming a deep lasting friendship with the president of Mexico!  Collections can be quite blessing and turn into part of a ministry too!

We love to give monthly collection assignments to every age of student. They are a great break from the “over-mental” and help to train the eyes and the heart to see God’s beauty and often open surprising open doors for relationships, conversations, opportunities to share the Lord, etc.

These are a bit concentrated and lengthly, but very interesting!  

 Every student needs to be trained to be able to seek information and glean the precious from the worthless (Jeremiah 15:19). This is especially true in the serious info overload we are facing.

This lesson is just meant to be fun.  Creativity rules the roost here. We love to give “art and craft” and all kinds of other creative projects the place they deserve.  Innovative assignments create delight and help to form tremendous life-time memory of the tremendous amount of material we present through CWS materials and the hundreds of links we endorse.

See the Lesson Direction button in the Lesson for more ideas and the Lesson itself is filled with ideas.

These are links that talk about all sorts of amazing and wonderful things. Watch whichever ones of these you desire!

These are links that talk about various aspects of the “Global Topic”. Watch whichever ones of these you desire!

In studying God’s creation, there are so many routes to go and so many different “mediums” to choose from. U-choose is just a big free-for-all.  Do you like science audio dramas, magazines, nature hikes, collections, talks to engineers, or science evangelism?  Whatever a student’s and family’s heart throbs are can be pursued in this lesson.

Tying the Word in is absolutely critical.

In God we live and move and have our Being.  God’s wisdom is the beginning of knowledge and the Word is God-breathed.  We LOVE the word of God and have found that it blesses unspeakably.  Giving students a love for the Word is one of our great objectives and one of our greatest prayers.

Read a science book or science magazine each week.

Miscellaneous Important Info!

What are the Direction and Info Lesson Buttons?

Each Lesson has important Information on how to do the lesson for the most benefit at the top under the “Directions Button”. The “Info Button” has important information telling why we do what we do in that lesson.

What if I don’t want to do some lessons in a “Global Topic”?

Skip them.  You can still mark the lesson complete.
