    Part of Master Books' Wonders of Creation series, this book is more historical in nature than the other titles, which focus more on science. For the first time ever in this series, they have written a book with information tailored to three age groups: 5th-6th grade, 7th-8th grade, and 9th-11th grades. Text geared for each age group is printed on a differently-colored background, with the most basic information (who, what, where, why and how) written to younger readers, and the most complex information (theories, controversies) geared for older readers. Eleven chapters discuss what archaeology is, and then look at archaeology investigations at a number of different ancient Middle Eastern sites, including Egypt, the land of the Hittites, Ur of the Chaldees, Assyria, Babylon, Persia, Petra, the land of the Phoenicians, the Dead Sea Scrolls, and Israel. An overview of the history of locations or cultures is provided in each chapter, along with exciting details on recent discoveries and narratives from the Bible that correlate with the history of a place or related ruler. Maps, full-color photos and notes from the author add further interest. Although the differently-colored blocks of text aren't too hard to get used to as an older reader, younger readers that have an interest in archaeology may browse other sections, and will certainly be interested in perusing the full-color photographs of sites and artifacts. A separate 36-page study guide includes vocabulary, short answer questions, and hands-on activities for each chapter. This is available as a free download at www.masterbooks.net. A wonderful supplement to any study of ancient history, and a great resource for Christian students interested in the field of archaeology. 96 pgs, hc. – Jess

    Author Emil Silvestru, PhD combines his findings from over 28 years of studying and exploring caves. Using compelling photographs and concrete scientific evidence, Silvestru presents a solid argument suggesting that the conditions provided by a world-wide flood could have decreased the generally believed "millions of years" formation time of rock structures to mere thousands of years – or less. Six chapters explore the history of humans and caves, mythology associated with caves, technical details of caves, classification of caves, a guide to exploring caves for yourself, and a systematic method of studying caves and their surrounding areas.

    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.

    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

    I have long been interested in the evolution/creationism debate. One often-made point is to look at many features in nature as undeniable proof of God's fingerprints. This 6-DVD set takes the same tack, examining the magnitude of the galaxy down to the complexity of the human body. The focus of the set is not on the debate, but rather to show and explain things like the weather from a creationist viewpoint. It will take you some time to get through them; total running time is 10 hours. Volume 1 covers the galaxy and solar system, including some recent discoveries. Volume 2 talks about planet Earth, taking you on a tour of our unique planet, and shows you some of the more complicated systems that we take for granted. Volume 3 goes through the layers of the earth and covers our water phenomena like storms and floods. Volume 4 focuses more exclusively on wind and its marvels. Volume 5 covers animal life and the ingenuities that are beyond anything humans can construct. Volume 6 covers human life in all its magnificence. A notable set in its approach, a veritable curriculum in its depth, and a refreshing change from the Science Channel and its never-ending parade of evolutionary material.  Extra features include an additional 2 full length programs: In His Prescence and Be Thou My Vision. ~ Mark

    Early in our nation's history, the primary reason for education was to allow each person to read the Bible for himself. In the same spirit comes this complete first grade curriculum. While it incorporates history, science, art, and math, the heart of the program is phonics-based reading instruction with Biblical emphasis. This program was revised in 2013 and features a new title, changes to the teacher's manual and new package resources.

    Phonics instruction begins with a quick review of letter names and sounds using full-color alphabet flash cards, then follows with in-depth, step-by-step teaching of all phonics constructs. Phonics lesson plans teach new skills while reviewing previously-learned skills. By Lesson 31, students are able to read Bible stories in a special beginning Bible Reader. The reader uses a thematic approach to teach Bible history in chronological order from Genesis to Revelation. Students are expected to retell the Bible story, and then create a keepsake Bible notebook in which they summarize and illustrate Bible stories. (Linda used a similar approach years ago to teach Bible to our older children, and they enjoyed it very much.) Weekly memory verses selected from Proverbs help to develop character and handwriting at the same time. Hands-on projects are designed to help children understand the world of the Bible. These include creating timelines using the included figures, making Bible times costumes, and celebrating a Sabbath meal. Science focuses on the wonders of God's creation, and uses three Usborne books (Things Outdoors, Science with Water, and Science with Plants), which are included with the curriculum. Math incorporates hands-on activities, math manipulatives and a math workbook (Complete Book of Math Gr. 1-2). If you prefer a more serious approach to math (as we do), you can add another math program.

    The Deluxe Package includes the Teacher's Manual; student book; student worksheets; a Bible Notebook; Bible Reader; Complete Book of Math Gr. 1-2; My Big Book of 5-Minute Devotions; Unifix Cubes; a small geared clock; addition and subtraction flashcards; wood pattern blocks; Pattern Animals; Things Outdoors; Science with Water; Science with Plants; Honey for a Child's Heart; Peter and the Wolf CD; Enjoying Art Together; and Drawing with Children. ~ Bob

    If I could have only one science resource in our school, this would be it. Moody Press has taken the creme de la creme from its science films in producing this excellent set. Each hour-long DVD features exceptional photography and intriguing subject matter, all to display the wisdom and power of our Creator. Part 1 explores the life support system designed into planet earth. Part 2 provides fascinating facts from the animal kingdom. Part 3 focuses on the marvelous design of the human body. (The DVDs in this set are the same as three of the DVDs found in the larger set, #035071, listed below.) Parts of this series have held visiting neighbor kids in rapt attention. Mark (then age 8), our science guy, particularly liked segments showing a lizard running on 2 legs, seed pods that "explode," and seeds that "walk." After viewing this set, you will see why "God saw that it was good."
