Features: Each suggested weekly homeschool schedule has three easy-to-manage lessons which combine reading, worksheets, and vocabulary-building opportunities including an expanded glossary for each book. Designed to allow your student to be independent, materials in this resource are divided by section so you can remove quizzes, tests, and answer keys before beginning the coursework. As always, you are encouraged to adjust the schedule and materials as needed in order to best work within your educational program.

Workflow: Students will read the pages in their book and then complete each section of the study guide worksheets. Tests are given at regular intervals with space to record each grade. Younger students may be given the option of taking open book tests.

Lesson Scheduling: Space is given for assignment dates. There is flexibility in scheduling. For example, the parent may opt for a M-W schedule rather than a M, W, F schedule. Each week listed has five days but due to vacations the school work week may not be M-F. Simply adapt the days to your school schedule. As the student completes each assignment, he/she should put an “X” in the box.

Semester 2: Paleontology

Fossils have fascinated humans for centuries. From the smallest diatoms to the largest dinosaurs, finding a fossil is an exciting and rewarding experience. But where did they come from, and how long have they been around? These and many other questions are answered in this remarkable book.

The Fossil Book will teach you about: the origin of fossils, how to start your own fossil collection, what kinds of fossils can be commonly found, the age of fossils, how scientists find and preserve fossils, how to identify kinds of fossils, how the Flood affected fossil formation, the Geologic Column Diagram, the difference between evolutionists’ and creationists’ views on fossils, the “four Cs” of biblical creation, the different kinds of rocks fossils are found in, coal and oil formation.

Learning about fossils, their origins, and how to collect them can be both fun and educational. The abundance of both marine and land fossils and the locations they are found in is a fascinating subject for students of all ages and has been studied by scientists and layperson alike for many years.
