Dinosaurs follows the stories of adventure, discoveries, and key people who helped contribute to the world's understanding of these giants of the animal kingdom. Written in living book style, the lessons begin with daily devotional prompts, and each week contain a section about apologetics (specifically, how we know that the Bible is true).

The first lesson introduces the main theories about dinosaurs and the age of the earth, and invites students to ask big questions about what they believe and why. This is a core focus of this unit: mystery, discovery, not being afraid to ask questions, and seek and you will find.
For the first time . . . we do not have a writing project for one of our units! Due to popular request, we took a break from writing and instead focused on research steps, tools, and skills. Students will learn about the Dewey Decimal system, how to use a table of contents or index to find a topic. They will learn about keywords and safety on the internet. They will learn about reliable sources and biases and opinions. We hope that this unit will be a foundational one that will give some insight into how to find information.
We moved our notebooking and art pages to the appendix, so that students can rip out their pages to make their own dino discovery book with all the animals in one place. You can do this at the beginning and have your book as an add on, or at the end. This is a great way to show what you know towards the end of the unit!
Art is included in nearly every lesson and this time we did step by step! Middle and High School have an optional apologetics page (a sixth page) each day to go more in depth to the things they are learning about.
These are just a few of the things to look forward to this month. Take a look at the images to see a preview lesson!
