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.
NOTE: The Sky Challenger is an excellent resource that helps students recognize the constellations and other star groups any day of the year.
Some arithmetic problems can be used to enforce the concept of Greenwich Mean Time (GMT) and the difference in the time at GMT and where the student lives, or other time zones around the world. For instance, if it is noon at GMT, what time is it in New York City? Or what time is it in London, England? Or what time is it in Sydney, Australia?
A good world map will have the various time zones mapped out.
