Life Science: Origins & Scientific Theory (Teacher Guide)
For Grade Level 9-12
Overview: This Life Science: Origins & Scientific Theory Teacher Guide contains materials for use with Evolution: The Grand Experiment Vol. 1 and Living Fossils. By developing a deeper understanding of these concepts, students will be able to develop and support a strong worldview.
Course Description: This course is intended to help a student assess information about evolution and creation, and based on the information provided for each, form his or her own understanding of this issue. The author spent 30 years in a challenge to prove evolution, yet the more he learned, the more the truth of God’s Word became apparent in the evidence and interviews he found while traveling the world speaking to scholars, and museum officials and viewing artifacts.
Upon completion of this course, students will have a thorough understanding of the theory of evolution and its limits. Students will develop scientific critical thinking skills through careful analysis of evidence and comparing the merits of different theories. Students will study paleontology, biology, and geology as they relate to the study of origins through an exploration of living fossils.
Chapter Discussion Question: Teachers are encouraged to participate with the student as they complete the discussion questions. The purpose of the Chapter Purpose section is to introduce the chapter to the student. The Discussion Questions are meant to be thought-provoking. The student may not know the answers but should answer with their, thoughts, ideas, and knowledge of the subject using sound reasoning and logic. They should study the answers and compare them with their own thoughts. We recommend the teacher discuss the questions, the student’s answers, and the correct answers with the student. This section should not be used for grading purposes.
DVD: Each DVD is watched in its entirety to familiarize the student with each book in the course. They will watch it again as a summary as they complete each book. Students may also use the DVD for review, as needed, as they complete each chapter of the course.
Chapter Worksheets: The worksheets are foundational to helping the student learn the material and come to a deeper understanding of the concepts presented. Often, the student will compare what we should find in the fossil record and in living creatures if evolution were true with what we actually find. This comparison clearly shows evolution is an empty theory simply based on the evidence. God’s Word can be trusted and displayed both in the fossil record and in living creatures.
Tests and Exams: There is a test for each chapter, sectional exams, and a comprehensive final exam for each book.
