Considering God’s Creation, Teachers Manual & Student Workbook

This product is only available from the publisher at

http://www.eagleswingsed.com/product/considering-gods-creation/

A creative in-depth encounter with natural science from a biblical perspective.  Adaptable for Second to Seventh Grade. A gigantic 272-page book plus Teacher's Manual with free audio CD!

Student workbook has tear-out pages for each lesson that can be colored in.

Considering God’s Creation an elementary earth and life science program that was born out of our desire to introduce our own children to the Creator through His creation. We wanted them to have more than just information and facts about the world around them, so that they could make some of the spiritual connections that Jesus so often pointed out in nature. For example, when we study plants and are out working in the garden, it is a perfect opportunity to talk about how God provides for all His creation, to tell the story of the sower and the seeds, to talk about reaping what we sow, and to discuss how we will be known by our fruits.

We also wanted to teach our children to absolutely love science and to become scientist detectives. We wanted them to be able to accurately describe different kinds of plants and to classify them in the appropriate categories.

Each lesson begins with preparation directions . Then the vocabulary words are listed, with the meanings and language roots included. An introduction follows that is to be read aloud. Many of the lessons include a song which covers scientific definitions set to original music, but also have  a spiritual application. Then an activity helps the student to further understand the concept. A Bible reading focuses on what God is teaching us about Himself through that particular aspect of creation. Then the children work individually on their notebooks. These pages are designed to be discovery pages, with pop-up windows, books within books, and all sorts of really neat kids stuff. You would then follow up with “Evolution Stumpers”, review questions, and perhaps something from the “Digging Deeper” section.

lessons are done orally with music and activities.

There are actually 36 lessons, but some of the lessons have several parts and can be divided

Can Do Kids Video, set of four on DVD

These videos are a multi-sensory presentation to aid in memorizing math
facts. One DVD now includes addition, subtraction, multiplication, and addition. Each comes with Adobe Acrobat files containing teacher’s guide and a booklet file that includes reproducible pages for written drills and practice. Each math fact “family” (0 through 12) has its own song and movement, and the math sentences are shown across the top of the screen as the Can-Do Kids perform. Math vocabulary is also taught throughout the DVD. These videos are appropriate for visual, auditory, and tactile-kinesthetic learners. They are excellent for the child who needs to be in motion, since they can exercise with the videos and work on math facts at the same time. The opening song on each video has the Can-Do Kids singing that they “can do all things through Christ”.
