Exploring Planet Earth

Exploring Planet Earth

by John Hudson Tiner

The first in a series of what will be three books on science, geared toward the homeschool family. With definitions of terms and identification of explorers, scientists, etc., this book gives students excellent introductory knowledge of famous people and history.


These lessons are geared for middle students. The lessons in the book contain questions for each chapter. We will point to articles on our website which go along with those lessons. We will also supply Scripture as often as possible to go along with the lesson. Parents should start with the Scripture lesson. It is important that parents prepare themselves by reading the stated pages prior to having the student read the weekly assignment. If a child is not able to read yet, parents may wish to read the text to the student.


  • Pages 142–153


  • Psalm 95:5
  • Psalm 33:5
  • Numbers 14:21


For older students: Study the various types of “rockets” that have been used in the space exploration program of the United States. The NASA Web site has several history sites. (CAUTION: The NASA Web site does contain evolutionary material.)

You may also want to read more about Jim Irwin (mentioned in this lesson) from the book, Flight of the Falcon (right)
