Early scientists believed in an orderly God who had created an orderly universe that could be studied and understood by men. Modern science rests on a foundational belief in a Creator God who has promised to grant His people access to his mysteries. Therefore, no science study is complete without the addition of creation science.

This oversized, hardcover, fully illustrated book gives an excellent explanation of why the theory of evolution totally fails to explain the available natural, fossil, and archaeological data. The book’s layout and art work remind us a little of Bill Gothard’s ATIA books. It is a super resource for Christian families to be used with all ages.

This is a “hands on” science skills curriculum for grades 2 – 5 based on the days of creation. It integrates the attributes of God, critical thinking, and science skills. It is a one year curriculum that can be repeated at three separate skill levels or that can be used with three different age levels at the same time. Units follow the creation week and are Light and Energy (Day 1); Air, Water, and Weather (Day 2); Rocks, Minerals, and Plants (Day 3); Sun, Moon, and Stars (Day 4); Birds and Sea Life (Day 5); Land Animals and Human Biology (Day 6). Famous scientists are also studied. Even if you don’t use it as a curriculum, it is a great resource book.
