History

  1. Welcome to Early American History. We are going to pick up right where we left off at the end of year 1, with explorers. You are going to be reading about one explorer in particular, Christopher Columbus.
  2. You will be reading The True Story of Christopher Columbus. That’s the link for those who want to download the book.
  3. You are going to be reading the first seven chapters.
  4. Today you will read the first half of chapter 1. Read to the middle of page 17.
  5. Look at the photos on this page. Click on each of them.

Science

  1. Do you see the word ZOO in the title of this page.  -OLOGY means “the study of.”  What do you think “zoo” refers to? Animals of course! So, zoology is the study of animals. It is pronounced zoe-OLogy.
  2. Zoology is part of biology, but there are SOOOO many animals that have so many neat things about them. God took care in making each one. You’ll learn how they each have special strengths, defenses, abilities. Animals are amazing and they are all so unique because our God is amazing and creative!
  3. Before we start learning about specific animals, I’m going to throw some words your way. You may or may not know them. Don’t worry if you don’t learn them today. You will learn them better as we go throughout the year. They are the words that describe how animals are classified. You’ve probably heard the word bird, right? Of course! Well, what makes a bird a bird? How would you describe a bird?
  4. That’s classifying. You described a bird so that when you come across a new animal you can see if it fits the description. If it does, it’s a bird.
  5. Animal classification is what we’ll be looking at first. There may be a lot of new words for some of you, but like I said, you’ll get used to them throughout the year. For some of you, this will be easy! You love animals and know all about this stuff already, so have fun!
  6. Watch the video on animal classification.
  7. Go to the word wall and make sure you know what each of those words are.
  8. Play the game.
  9. Do you get the joke?
  10. Try the quiz.

Bible

  1. Read Mark 2:1-17.
  2. How did the men get their friend to Jesus in order to be healed?  (answer: The put a hole in the roof and lowered him down.)
  3. Do you think they fixed it afterwards?
  4. Jesus showed them He had the power to forgive sins by doing what?  (answer: telling the man to get up and walk — It would have been meaningless if the man hadn’t been healed.)
  5. Who did Jesus come to save?  (answer: sinners)
  6. Of course, this means Jesus came to save everyone because we were all born human, meaning we are all sinners until Jesus saves us. The Pharisees didn’t see themselves as sinners, though Jesus considers them some of the biggest sinners.

Day 3

Bible

  1. Read Mark 3:1-19.
  2. The Pharisees said it was against the law to heal on the Sabbath, the Jewish day of rest. They had made strict Sabbath rest laws. I know people today who rip their toilet paper the day before because ripping toilet paper would be “working” on the Sabbath. Do you think this is pleasing to God? Do you think that’s what He intended? Jesus asks them a question to keep them quiet. What does he ask?  (answer: He asks if we should do good or evil.)

Bible

  3. A farmer is planting seeds. Some of the seeds grow. Some of the seeds get eaten. Some withered. Some were choked by thorns.
  4. What do those stories mean?  (answer: Someone shares God’s Word with people. Some don’t let the word into their hearts. Some think the words sound good and want to be saved, but as soon as something hard comes along, they abandon God’s Word for what they think is best. Some accept God’s Word, but they desire money more or worry about themselves and don’t trust God and rely on Him. They abandon God’s Word for what they want even more. Only some truly follow God’s Word go on to spread God’s Word too!)

Like humans are in the animal kingdom and we are vertebrates (we have a spine) and we are mammals just like the lemur! But if we stopped there you would think people and lemurs were just alike. Classification goes a long way in identifying types of animals.

Most Iroquois music is very rhythmic and consists mostly of drumming and lively singing. Flutes were used to woo women in the Iroquois tribes. An Iroquois Indian man would play beautiful flute music outside a woman’s longhouse at night to show her he was thinking about her.From: http://www.bigorrin.org/iroquois_kids.htm

Optional Reading: This Country of Ours  chapters 45-50

Bible

  1. Read Acts 16:1-21.
  2. How does Paul ruin someone’s business?  (answer: by casting a demon out of a fortune-teller  This girl was a psychic that used communication with demons to enable her to know things about people to get them to believe she could tell the future. She could know things that would happen really soon if they were already in progress, so the demons could see that it was going to happen, but she did not really know the future. The Bible tells us only God knows the future. “Real” psychics that use demons are a trick of Satan because they can tell you some truths to get you to believe them but then can lie to you about the future and direct you away from where God wants you to be.)

Bible

  1. Read Acts 17:1-15.
  2. Paul and Silas were accused of making trouble all over the world. The “world” to them was smaller than it is to us. It is still a great compliment to a Christian. We should be turning the world upside down.
  3. Sometimes you hear people say you should be like the Bereans. What do you think that means?  (answer: They searched the Scriptures to see if what was being taught was true. Just because a preacher or other Christian says something doesn’t mean that’s really what the Bible says. Find out what the truth is for yourself. Make a habit and checking things out for yourself before you repeat them as true.)

It can give you some practice. But, if you have permission, you can use the lapbook pieces as a guide and make the same thing on the computer. You can answer the same questions and write the same information but make your own lapbook pieces on the computer or a digital scrapbook, a glog, a power point presentation, a video, or whatever else you know how to do. HOWEVER, it will take you longer than just using the lapbook. You still have to finish on time. This holds true for any lapbook you will be doing this year.)
  2. You will need to finish your lapbook on Day 49 (or Day 50 if you need to). That’s seven days. Print out what pieces you will use and divide them up, so you know how many you need to get done each day.

  3. *You can fill out their information in this mini book. (You don’t have to print the first and last pages.They will be assigned four dinosaurs.)
  4. Here’s a good place to stop and point out that not all scientists agree on things. The site where you looked up the dinosaurs says that these dinosaurs lived 65 million years ago. Here’s a website where a scientist says they lived 6 thousand years ago. The Bible tells us they were created on day six of creation. I believe that the Bible is true, so I believe the scientist who says that dinosaurs lived 6,000 years ago. There is scientific evidence that dinosaur fossils that have been found are that young. Scientists who don’t believe in the Bible refuse evidence that supports the Bible. We always need to take the information we are given and check how it lines up with the Bible. The Bible is true, so if something contradicts, or goes against what the Bible says, we need to stop and decide if that information is false. We will do a little more about what the Bible says about dinosaurs in the coming days.

Science

  1. “Dinosaurs ate plants before the fall.  How do we know this?  God created the world and said it was “very good!”  Everything existed in perfect harmony.  We also know that all animals were vegetarians because of what we find in His Word–  Genesis 1:30, ‘And to every beast of the earth, and to every bird of the air, and to every thing that creeps upon the earth, which has life, I have given every green herb for food: and it was so.’   Some scientists use the argument that dinosaurs had sharp teeth– therefore they ate meat.  However, today Giant Pandas and many other species of bears have sharp teeth (similar to large meat eating cats like lions), and they are vegetarian. After the fall, everything changed.  The world was no longer perfect as God had created it.  At this point it is possible that some varieties of dinosaurs became meat eaters.” (from the dinosaur lapbook on homeschoolshare.com)

  3. I think that all of those fairy tale type stories with knights killing fire-breathing dragons came from passed down and exaggerated tales of fighting and slaying dinosaurs.
  4. *Print out pages 3 and 4 of this pdf. Read the Bible verses. What do they tell us about dinosaurs?

Bible

  1. Read Galatians 2:11-21.
  2. This kid version says that we become right with God by believing in Jesus. But remember, even the devil believes in Jesus. What does this original version say about how we become right with God (justified)?  (answer: by faith in Jesus)
  3. What’s the difference between believing in Jesus and having faith in Jesus? It depends on how you look at it. Like I said, the devil believes that Jesus exists and is the son of God. He knows that he died on the cross and rose from the grave. But we can have faith in Jesus to save us from our sins. We can have faith that He shed his blood to save us from our sin. We can have faith that He gives us His Spirit and makes it so that we can be with God.
  4. What did Peter do that made Paul upset?  (answer: He stopped eating with Gentiles, non-Jews. Eating with Gentiles made a Jew “unclean.” Remember how God taught Peter not to call Gentiles unclean? Peter accepted Gentiles, but when other Jews started coming around he gave into peer pressure and stopped eating with the Gentiles. The Bible says we are all one in Christ Jesus, that he doesn’t make a differentiation between us.)

  1. Read Galatians 3:1-14.
  2. There are 613 commandments in the Old Testament law. There are many rituals that they had to preform in order to be right with God and no one could follow all of the laws perfectly. That’s why it says that they were cursed by the law. We are not saved by following the Old Testament law. We are saved by faith in Jesus.
  3. Does that mean that we can sin and do whatever we want?  (answer: No! If we are saved by faith, then by faith the Holy Spirit comes to live in us and sets us free from sin so that we have the power to do what is right. And the Bible says that we will choose to do what is right if we love God.)
