fourth book in this Young Explorer Series. This elementary-level
science curriculum uses the Charlotte Mason methodology to give
elementary school students an introduction to the incredible world
of the swimming animals.
begins with a lesson on the general features of aquatic animals and
the characteristics of their most common habitat: the ocean. It
then spends two lessons discussing aquatic mammals like whales and
seals. The next two lessons cover the aquatic amphibians and
reptiles. Two lessons on fish follow, and then the student gets
introduced to the amazing animals called crustaceans and mollusks.
Then, the student starts studying the strange animals called
cephalopods (like octopuses), and cnidarians (like jelly fish).
Finally on to lesser-known animals of the oceans like sponges and
Charlotte Mason approach, the student notebook is emphasized in
every lesson. Students are told to make illustrations for each
lesson and are given notebook assignments to reinforce what they
and projects use easy-to-find household items and truly make the
lessons come alive! They include making and wearing blubber to see
how well it insulated, comparing the densities of cold and hot
water, seeing the effect of temperature on tadpole development and
fish activity, and raising sea monkeys or triops. Most importantly
a creationists world view is stressed throughout. Time and again,
God is glorified as the Master Creator of all that the student is
4/22/2008 -- Do the zoology books have to be done in any certain order or could we start with "Land Animals" first?
Response From R.O.C.K. Solid: Rebecca, For each elementary subject, you may choose your topic of interest (Astronomy, Botany, or Zoology) and do them in any order you wish. The publisher recommends doing Zoology, which has 3 books, in order because there are terms defined in Book 1 that are used in Book 2, and terms defined in Book 2 that are used in Book 3. However, if a parent has a general knowledge of life science and you do the Zoology books out of order, the parent can just explain those terms as they are encountered. Thanks for your question, Nathan.
