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.

Introduction:

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.

Read:

  • Pages 126–141

Scripture:

  • Psalm 103:5
  • Isaiah 40:31
  • Proverbs 40:19
  • Psalm 68:13

Activity:

Not much information is given in the text about the US Balloon Corps. This could be the topic for a research paper, discussing how the balloons were used during the US Civil War.
