D-Dinosaur Plan

Every unit excites me in different ways (granted. 


There are some units, that I just do. Not that much stuff). Some units, I LOVE the fact there are great crafts or fun activities. Others (like the last) I love the hands on. This unit, I am stretched in my spiritual learning. Because I never cared about the dinosaur. I AM A GAL! I never cared when they lived, if they still lived, and how that contradicts (or not) with the bible. I shrug it off with "God knows and I don't" But here comes a time when I'm confronted with it and I got to teach it to my kids and I better learn it. And boy, learn it I did and how grateful I am! Just by reading this AMAZING article by Ken Ham who made the whole dinosaur thing SOOO easy to understand, my faith grew a notch! Can you believe it! My God is awesome! His Word is true! Do yourself a favor and read it.


Anyhows, here's the unit plan (besides the usual Language drills)
  1. Teach about the dinosaurs well. I didn't have the Ken Ham book (I wish I did) but here're seven easy points I gleaned from the article that I'm going to teach my kids. *Dinosaurs were created on Day and they started out eating plants
  *Dinosaurs lived with men
  *Not all dinosaurs are big
*Dinosaurs went into Noah's Ark too
*After the Flood, they slowly died
*We don't know exactly how they look like
  *They may not be totally extinct


2. Clothes Pin Stegosaurus craft
  3. Hatchable Dino Egg
  4. Dinosaur Diorama using Dino here
