Faith and Science in Ontario Catholic Schools
|Audience:||Elementary: Grades 5 – 8|
|Descriptor:||This resource explores how our Church approaches how scientific truth informs our faith. In this series of lessons, students in grades 5-8 are introduced to the idea that science and faith are not opposed to each other, but rather are mutually complementary.
Analyzing the Ontario Science Curriculum for grades 5-8 resulted in highlighting 3 overall subject areas in which there is often confusion about what our Church teaches in that area: the environment, creation and outer space, and biology. This resource illustrates the rich teachings of our Church in each area, and reassures students that using their logic is a gift from God.
