Science week #1

My younger three children just started two weeks ago working through the book Christian Kids Explore Earth and Space. We started out talking about creation and how God created the earth. Then we labeled two maps one with the continents and the other with the oceans. We worked on memorizing the names of the oceans and continents plus the Bible verse Gen. 1:1 "In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth."

We then moved on to learning about the parts of the earth - core, outer core, lower mantle, upper mantle, and crust. We also learned about the words rotate, axis, and revolve.

Then they painted styrofoam balls with the different layers of the earth as their hands on project.

Next week we are off to explore caves and then onto volcanoes - stay tuned!
