    In this third book in the "Wonders of Creation" series, Dr. Morris explains the structure of the earth we live on and presents evidence and theories of rock and landform formation from a young-earth viewpoint. He includes interesting findings from Mt. St. Helens and other recent catastrophic events, discusses various methods of dating the earth, and presents possible scenarios for Creation and the Flood that fit with a literal interpretation of the Biblical account. The well illustrated and easy to read pages make this a good introduction for the younger student or for anyone who has not been exposed to an alternative to the "millions of years" of most geology texts. Grades 5 and up. ~ Reprinted from Christian Home Educators Curriculum Manuals with permission of Cathy Duffy, Grove Publishing.

    The corresponding study guide would be a good tool for small group study and homeschool. Each chapter includes corresponding pages from the book, scripture passages, and questions to answer. There is also a list of vocabulary words to define and suggested activities for each chapter. You can start your own rock collection, make a fossil, and study erosion. This 44-page study guide is not reproducible. An answer key is included. 5" x 8", softcover. ~ Donna

    Using the True North series and Awesome Science DVD series together, you can teach your students about what the rocks tell us about the earth and its history. This planner pulls them all together to make a full one-year curriculum that equals one high school credit. The 180 daily lesson plans lay it all out for you, along with reproducible worksheets (for ten or less and homeschool families), quizzes and tests, and the answer key. The worksheets include activities, discussion questions, short answer, fill-in-the-blank and vocabulary. The daily schedule is formatted in an easy-to-follow chart that also includes space for assignment due dates and recording grades. Lessons take 30-45 minutes daily, and some labs are suggested but not required. If you have a geology buff in your family, why not take the time to teach them about the geological record from a biblical perspective? ~ Donna

    This set from Alpha Omega includes individual Lifepac workbooks from the Science series. Different grade levels and units that cover the topics needed for a Geology course were individually selected to assemble this set. The five science Lifepacs included are: Grade 7, Unit 5; Grade 7, Unit 7; Grade 9, Unit 3; Grade 9, Unit 4; and Grade 9, Unit 8. The Lifepacs are the same ones included in the grade-level sets of Science Lifepacs, but they are compiled in this set to focus on Geology. A teacher’s guide is included with the five workbooks, which includes an answer key for each Lifepac, as well as an alternative test. The teacher’s guide states that completing this set earns junior high or high school students a half credit in Geology.

    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.

    Have you ever stopped to realize that a comprehensive understanding of the earth, its structure, and its inhabitants are a necessary foundation for interacting meaningfully with our increasingly global-minded world? Taking an overview approach, the North Star Geography course covers geography skills (reading maps, using geographic tools, cartography, surveying, and navigation), physical geography (geology, meteorology, oceanography, ecology, hydrology, and astronomy), and human geography (sociology, culture, religion, transportation, agriculture, government, and economics). Bright Ideas Press and world geography – what a great idea! Student Reader plus Companion Guide CD-ROM (activities: maps, hands-on, research options, quizzes/tests) – what a great idea! Quality content, Biblical worldview, and user-friendliness all rolled up into one package – what a great idea!

    Obviously, the Student Reader is the heart of the course. Each of the sixteen lessons provides 15-20 pages of reading text, full-color illustrations, photos, sidebar articles, and maps. Lessons are divided into teaching segments which are both highly readable and interesting. The organization lends itself to flexibility, and the course could be done over one year (two weeks per lesson), two years (four weeks per lesson), or even one semester (one week per lesson – a bare bones approach). Vocabulary words are in bold with definitions provided in the glossary at the end of the text. The Reader concludes with a reference list that provides options for further study.

    The accompanying Companion Guide CD-ROM (pdf files) provides both basic and "extra" activities in addition to all content from the Reader. It's these pdf files that will allow you to tailor the course for high school, for junior high, or for a combination of ages. Families may make photocopies or print pages as needed, but classrooms and co-ops should contact the publisher for a multiple-use license. Depending on the course time-frame you choose, you will probably have to do some selection of activities, as there is a wealth provided.

    • • Hands-On Activities – there is lots of variety here – some short and simple, some more involved. Materials lists are provided when necessary (and tend to be easy-to-get items).
    • • Build Your Own Atlas – there's a segment for each lesson that includes labeling outline maps, completing fact files, and creating a set of political, physical, and thematic maps. Outline maps are provided but a good atlas as a reference is helpful (i.e. Wondermaps or Atlas of World Geography).
    • • Note-Taking Pages – each lesson has a set of 10 questions taken from the text that serve as lesson review and a study guide for the quizzes.
    • • Memorization Lists – a list of 198 countries, 70 regions and physical features to learn – roughly 16 items per lesson.
    • • Research Questions – a set of questions for each continent which encourage the student to conduct his own research (answers included).
    • • Quizzes and Tests – quizzes for each lesson (based on note-taking questions and map work). A final exam includes questions taken from all 16 of the lessons (answer keys and grading rubrics included).
    • • Graphic Organizers - can be used for all types of studies – world/continent, country, culture, regional geography, and government fact files.

    Homeschool geography courses have tended to be research frameworks that can be used by multi-age students and over several years. While having lots of advantages for families they require planning, preparation, and, often, outside resources. North Star takes a different approach providing a very solid base of textual information but giving lots of options for additional activities and research. It provides all necessary forms and pages, requiring only a good world atlas to accompany the course. ~ Janice
