Are you and your child bored by the average science curriculum? Do you want to study something unique and unusual? Try an out-of-the-ordinary science course focused on caves and fossils! Liven up your homeschool curriculum with this exciting speleology and paleontology curriculum that approaches both subjects from a strong biblical worldview. In the first half of the course, discover how caves are formed, explore different examples from around the world, and learn how the subject connects to biblical history. Then, dig deeper into the history, type, and preservation science of fossils, sifting through facts and photos in an exploration designed to spark interest!
Features: Each suggested weekly schedule has two to three easy-to-manage lessons which combine reading, worksheets, and vocabulary-building opportunities including an expanded glossary for each book. Designed to allow your student to be independent, materials in this resource are divided by section so you can remove quizzes, tests, and answer keys before beginning the coursework. As always, you are encouraged to adjust the schedule and materials as you need to in order to best work within your educational program.
Workflow: Students will read the pages in their book and then complete each section of the study guide worksheets. Tests are given at regular intervals with space to record each grade. Younger students may be given the option of taking open book tests.
Lesson Scheduling: Space is given for assignment dates. There is flexibility in scheduling. For example, the parent may opt for a M-W schedule rather than a M, W, F schedule. Each week listed has five days but due to vacations the school work week may not be M-F. Please adapt the days to your school schedule. As the student completes each assignment, he/she should put an “X” in the box.
