These lessons are geared for middle-school students. Each lesson contains a series of questions to answer that pertain to the reading assignment. There is a section of each lesson for advanced students. Teachers should start with the Scripture lesson.
It is important that teachers prepare themselves by reading the stated pages prior to having the student read the assignment. If a child is not able to read yet, parents may wish to read the text to the student.

This “experiment” will take a few weeks. Erect a mound of dirt in your backyard (pile of dirt should be at least three feet high). Visit the mound each day and record the following information: height of mound, width of mound. You will notice that the mound will get shorter and the base wider. Child should determine what could have caused the difference in height and width. Was it the wind? Was it rain? Was it a dry-spell? etc. Have fun with this.
