These lessons are geared for younger students. Many lessons will, however, include activities for the older student. Parents/teachers will easily find the answers to questions in the text, and should 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.

Questions to answer:
- Although the book states, “Astronomers have found no planets outside our solar system,” this is an out-dated statement. Please read The Existence and Origin of Extrasolar Planets for up-dated information. Describe a Biblical perspective on the existence of planets outside the solar system.
- When reading articles in either newspapers or magazines about new discoveries in any scientific discipline (e.g. paleontology, anthropology, geology, biology, etc.), what question should you ask about what you’re reading?
- What causes a star to appear to “wobble”?
- Biblically, why do we not expect to find signs of intelligent life outside of Earth? (See The Search for Alien Life and God and the Extraterrestrials.)
- What does SETI stand for?
- Parents/teachers should read the “What are UFOs?” section and God and the Extraterrestrials and explain the contents to their students. Include an explanation of the Gospel message.
