Rocks and Minerals for Little Eyes is the first in our “Little Eyes” curriculum series, designed just for the younger crowd, PreK-3rd grades. It guides your young child through the rock types, reinforcing the Biblical view of how they came to be. Teaching our kids to study the rocks in light of what God has spoken will give them a solid foundation for trusting God’s word in the future as they are challenged again and again. The study is conversational, drawing in both the child and parent.
Kids are naturally drawn to rocks. Let’s build off of that interest by telling them the whole story – not just the Sunday morning portion of it.
