This study is a wonderful way to introduce your student to these two complementary fields of study, archaeology and geology. The Archaeology Book is color-coded so that you could easily use it with a wider variety of ages, with the child using the pages that are color-coded for his/her age. We also include The Cave Book, to expand your geology study into another fascinating area of geology. Completion of this study is equal to 1 year high school credit in Earth Science. Kit includes:
- The Geology Book by Dr. John Morris
- The Archaeology Book by David Down
- The Cave Book by Emil Silvestru
- Study guides/lesson plans/work sheets/quizzes/tests for The Geology Book and The Archaeology Book.
- 26 rock, mineral, and fossil specimens
- over 10 native American arrowheads and scrapers
The Geology Book by Dr. John Morris – Rocks firmly anchored to the ground and rocks floating through space fascinate us. Jewelry, houses, and roads are just some of the ways we use what has been made from geologic processes to advance civilization. Whether scrambling over a rocky beach, or gazing at spectacular meteor showers, we can’t get enough of geology! Grades 5-12.
The Geology Book will teach you:
- What really carved the Grand Canyon.
- How thick the Earth’s crust is.
- The varied features of the Earth’s surface – from plains to peaks.
- How sedimentary deposition occurs through water, wind, and ice.
- Effects of erosion.
- Ways in which sediments become sedimentary rock.
- Fossilization and the age of the dinosaurs.
- The powerful effects of volcanic activity.
- Continental drift theory.
- Radioisotope and carbon dating.
- Geologic processes of the past.
The Archaeology Book by David Down – Developed with three educational levels in mind, The Archaeology Book takes you on an exciting exploration of history and ancient cultures. You’ll learn both the techniques of the archaeologist and the accounts of some of the richest discoveries of the Middle East that demonstrate the accuracy and historicity of the Bible.
