The textbook contains 48 lessons (including 8 review lessons). All regular lessons also include a short review exercise. A few reviews draw from previous units.

Fifth graders should grow in their knowledge of the facts and the order of the created world. In Unit 1, they learn the basics of orderly, scientific study. God's wonderful world is best understood by careful observation and by consistent testing of one's conclusions. Observation of God's power and control is emphasized in Unit 3.

In Units 2 and 8, students study and classify various forms of life. In Units 4, 5, and 7 they become acquainted with practical applications of everyday science.

Various paragraphs stress the value of conserving God-given resources and the value of observing safety. The book teaches the principle of prevention and cautions students about harmful chemicals, insects, and plants. In addition to anatomy, Unit 6 teaches good care of the human body.

The theme and title of this book is God's Wonderful World. The many marvels of science and the numerous quotations from the Book of Psalms emphasize this theme.

Students will appreciate the interesting writing style of this book. And the pupil's book uses color pictures where color is important.

The hardcover Teacher's Manual contains reduced black-and-white copies of each pupil page. Surrounding the pupil pages are answer keys, lesson concepts, and other helpful teaching aids. Each of the eight units has a beginning story to read to the students.

The Teacher's Manual is written and designed with inexperienced teachers in mind. Most written exercises have answers that are easy to grade. Most of the additional activities suggested are inexpensive and do not require a lot of teacher time. The written exercises and tests do not depend on these activities.

The teacher's introduction suggests schedule plans for a school year. It also gives some ideas on how to review effectively and how to use the science activities. The back of the book has copies of the unit tests with answers in place.
