One of my favorite things/reasons about Homeschooling is that there are countless opportunities where book lessons and Bible lessons collide!
We are studying the book of Genesis this year for our Bible time. The study is through WordAction via The Nazarene Publishing House. My girls participate in a Children’s Bible Quizzing program through our church. (I’m also the Quiizzing Director.) This program runs through the school year and offers a unique way to learn and memorize scripture in a healthy, yet competitive environment.
Coincidentally, while picking “curriculum” for the year our oldest decided that she would like to learn about space. This created the perfect way to begin the Bible study and our science on the same page! Literally!!!! Genesis 1:1!!!!
Last week we studied creation and this week we are studying the fall. However, we are still focusing on the stars and space aspect. Genesis 1:14 says, “God said, “Let there be lights in the vault of the sky to separate the day from the night, and let them serve as signs to mark sacred times, and days and years.” God gave us the stars, moon and sun to help us know the time and seasons. As a way to show this we created a sundial!
Here is the “How To”…
What you need:
