Survey of Astronomy
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.
This is the suggested course sequence that allows one core area of science to be studied per semester. You can change the sequence of the semesters per the needs or interests of your student; materials for each semester are independent of one another to allow flexibility.
Taking Back Astronomy: Take a breathtaking look at the universe in this comprehensive guide to the heavens! Sit back and explore the world at your fingertips. This book explains the scale and size of the universe that is hard for our minds to imagine, yet can only indicate the Master's hand at work. Marvel at over 50 full-color, rarely seen photos of stars, nebulae, and galaxies. Study the facts that challenge secular theories and models of the universe-how it began and how it continues to amaze the scientific community. Explore numerous evidences that point to a young universe: magnetic poles of planets, the spiral shape of galaxies, comets and how long scientists think they can last, and much more. Step out among the stars and experience the truly awesome power of God through this glimpse of His vast creation.
Our Created Moon: For eons the moon has intrigued humanity. From its creation through the current issues of space exploration the moon has been both a light in the night and a protective shield of earth placed perfectly by God, regulating our seasons and keeping our atmosphere purified. Billions of dollars have been spent to reach its surface and discover its secrets; open these pages and discover those secrets for yourself.
The Stargazer's Guide to the Night Sky: Explore the night sky, identify stars, constellations, and even planets. Stargaze with a telescope, binoculars, or even your naked eye. Allow Dr. Jason Lisle, a research scientist with a masters and PhD in astrophysics, to guide you in examining the beauty of God’s Creation with 150 full color star-charts. Learn the best ways and optimal times to observe planets and stars with easy to use illustrations. Create or expand the hobby of stargazing; an outdoor, educational hobby to enjoy with friends or family.
Our Created Moon DVD: In this illustrated presentation, Dr. Don DeYoung looks at four of the most popular ideas evolutionists have to offer regarding the moon's origin, and logically concludes that this "lesser light" could only have been placed in its orbit by an all-knowing, all-powerful Creator.
Created Cosmos DVD: Our universe is truly an amazing thing. The vastness of space boggles the mind, and the beauty of diversity we find there points to a Creator. The Psalmist wrote, "When I consider Your heavens, the work of Your fingers, the moon and the stars, which You have ordained, what is man that You are mindful of him, and the Son of man that You visit him?" Take a tour through the universe during this awe-inspiring presentation.
