Creation Unit Study

 

 

 

This is a unit that I have done with my children. Your resources

will probably not be similar to mine.

But I just want you to see what we have done with what we had!

 

Have fun!

 

 

 

This unit will take approximately 7-8 weeks.

 

We have used DK books, local library books, Usborne books,

4H materials, dictionaries, Science in the Creation

Week, an encyclopedia and other "easy" to find reference material.
