    This title in the Wonders of Creation series dives into the ocean. Through interesting text and an abundance of appealing pictures, students will learn about the ocean and its many facets from a creationist point of view. The book includes eleven chapters, which include: introduction to the ocean, oceanic research; physical characteristics of the ocean; the composition of the oceans' waters; tides, waves, and currents; weather; harvesting the ocean; marine life; exploring the coral reef; oceanic vessels; and the Genesis flood.

    Now updated, a page at the front of the book explains how to use the content with three different learning levels and the page content has color-coded backgrounds for clarity. Text on white background is for 5th/6th, text on light green is for 7th/8th, and text on blue background is for 9th- 11th. An 11"x 24" poster of the ocean's depths is included at the back of the book. Hardcover, 96 pages.

    A study guide is available for The Ocean Book. It corresponds by chapter, summarizing the main ideas and providing short answer questions for students to answer as they read through The Ocean Book. Each chapter of the study guide also includes discussion questions, vocabulary, activities, and projects to complete for better understanding of the concepts. These activities may include memorization of scripture, labeling maps, or reading weather maps. The study guide is a supplement to the text and is very helpful as you strive to comprehend and retain the facts presented. Guide is 72 pages, paperback, includes answers, and is not reproducible. - Melissa/Donna

    Looking for a handy reference book for science? If you can ignore the seemingly requisite homage to evolution in the first few pages and the evolutionary dating system mentioned here and there throughout the natural science sections, this could be a good choice. Chapters cover geology, living things, human biology, chemistry and the elements, materials and technology, light and energy, forces and movement, electricity and electronics, space and time, and the environment. Text is large, explanations are clear, and colorful photographs and illustrations abound. Each chapter ends with a helpful "Facts and Figures" page with key dates and definitions. Lots of useful information is packed into this 496-pg volume. hc.

    Much like the above collection, only with fewer specimens. The 35 or 24 rocks and minerals form a more abbreviated, but still adequate, range of materials for your study of geology or for identification/reference. Instead of buying one of those overpriced "book and skimpy rock collection" combo sets that pervade the market, settle on a good, basic book about rocks and rock-collecting, and use one of these sets as your samples. Unmount the specimens if you prefer - either way, you'll have a much larger and more complete collection for about the same price. Study Guide included.

    Let kids find their own crystals by cracking open these geodes! Geodes are formed from fluids which crystallize in cavities within rounded rock. All kids have to do is slip the geode into an old sock, break it open with a hammer, and collect their crystallized rocks. Approximately 80% of them will have hollow centers lined with beautiful crystals.

    Like the other texts in this series, the Earth Science employs a mastery approach to learning science students should learn, master, and retain, what they learn. A curriculum that uses this approach covers fewer topics but covers each more deeply. This text also integrates learning by combining skills in the areas of science, math, science history, and English language usage. Every chapter follows the same format objectives are stated, vocabulary terms presented, textual information numbered and divided into digestible amounts, learning checks' at the end of each reading section, and an exercise at the end of each chapter. Chapters in this book cover Earth in Space, Visualizing Earth, Thinking About Earth, Matter & Minerals, Rocks & the Rock Cycle, Plate Tectonics & Mountain Building, Volcanoes & Earthquakes, Weathering/Erosion/Soils, Surface Water & Groundwater, Landforms, Earth History, Oceanography, Atmosphere, Weather, and Climate & Air Pollution. A glossary, mineral chart, and other resources are found at the back of the text. The author believes in questions that require complete sentences as a response, so you won't find any true/false, matching, or multiple choice questions. Colorful illustrations and photos are used to enhance the content of this small format text (6.5" x 9.5").

    The text states three goals for which the student is to strive be good stewards of God's gifts; learn, master, and retain what you learn; learn to keep a lab journal. The student section at the front of the book explains how to keep your lab journal or you can use Student Lab Report Handbook (#47300) for guidelines suggested by this author for keeping a lab journal. This handbook is recommended for use at the high school level. There are eight Experimental Investigations found right in the text and include an overview, basic materials list and step-by-step instructions.
