Hello, and happy Saturday, friends! Our brothers and sisters over at Answers in Genesis have released a wonderful Easter lesson plan for free. The lesson plan comes with four different downloads, each specified to age. They start at Pre-K and go up to 8th grade. Whether you celebrate Passover or Easter, you won’t find any bunnies or eggs in these downloads. These lessons focus on Christ crucified, and risen from the grave. They are great for anyone who teaches Sunday school, homeschoolers, or parents/grandparents that want to turn their little one’s eyes on the kingdom rather than the candy.
I also wanted to share with you all a few of our recent field trips, I haven’t discussed our adventures since we went to see the Dino prints. Since then Kayliegh has learned about geological formations at the unfortunately named Garden of the Gods.
That gave us the opportunity to discuss the difference between the evolutionary story of how these rocks formed, and the flood of Noah and the impact it had on the Earth. Then we learned about erosion, and suspension bridges at America’s second highest suspension bridge named the Royal Gorge Bridge.
There was also a short lesson on mechanics as we rode the gondola across the Royal Gorge, then we discussed how fear can affect us. We also had a lot of fun learning the different types of mountains, and how oxygen works differently on our lungs at higher altitudes, by driving up to Pikes Peak. Kayliegh has had some lessons on weather, and how mountains affect it, as well.
There are fantastic places in everywhere state that show Gods glory, His intelligence in design, and His majesty in creation. When we can pull those lessons into science, history, and mathematics, it’s a win win! I hope these are encouraging to you all, beloved, to push the boundaries of how you teach your little ones. As always, dear ones, be good Berean’s and study to show yourselves approved.
