Muslim Inventions that Changed the World
Sr. Inas takes students on a trip through our rich Islamic history to learn about seven Muslim inventions that changed the world! We will be studying the amazing scientists who engineered flying machines, doctors who developed medicines and hospitals, educators who opened the first university, and entrepreneurs who made soap, studied optics, and more. Art projects connected to lessons add creativity. These innovations were marvels of their times and we are still benefiting from them today!
Learning Science from the Quran
Sr. Inas loves to teach students about Allah and the Quran. In this course, she will focus attention on what we can learn about science from our book of guidance. We will study the planets and stars, our beautiful planet Earth, the continents and landscapes, the oceans and rivers, the mountains, trees, and plants. Allah has made an amazing world for our benefit. The more we learn about it the more we can also work to protect it!
Each of these pre-recorded offerings also includes supplemental resources that expand learning outside of class time. They bring wholesome and fun educational opportunities into your home and encourage families to meet the joys and challenges of daily life through an Islamic lens. Now is the time to work them into your summer routine. Visit Academy.AdamsWorld.org for details and online registration.
