Elementary Zoology Teacher Guide
This Teacher Guide creates a zoology unit study for elementary students using God's Big Book of Animals, Wonders of God's World Dinosaur Activity Book, The Complete Aquarium Adventure, The Complete Zoo Adventure and How Many Animals Were on the Ark?. The 180 daily lessons are detailed in the suggested schedule chart, along with space to record due dates for assignments and grades. Each daily assignment block includes reading from the required text resources and completing worksheets. Also included in the planner are student worksheets, quizzes and an answer key. The worksheets provide a variety of activities based on the lesson content, including short-answer questions based on the reading, coloring pages, hands-on projects, puzzles, and much more. Permission is given for copying worksheets for family use or small groups of ten or less. Students will learn about simple animals, worms/snails/starfish, insects, fish, amphibians, reptiles, birds, and mammals. ~ Donna

OVERVIEW:Zoologyis the study of life, often connected with biology and focused on animals, which is why we have those places called "zoos all across the country. However, while the secular focus of zoology is on life origins and evolution, this course celebrates the wonder of God's creation and His unique design of all life on earth. This course has been developed to enhance learning about the diverse and amazing animals we see in our world. From the tiniest to the largest, you will be exploring what makes them unique as you celebrate their place in the world God created. Although the material can be modified for your own educational purposes, either on an elementary or more advanced level, it has been organized here to fit a one-year course.
FEATURES: The calendar provides daily sessions with clear objectives and worksheets and quizzes all based on the readings.
Master Books has such incredible science resources, but families choosing to use these books have historically either devised their own teacher material or used the publishers' free study guide if one was available. No more! They have now published Parent Lesson Planners (or "PLPs") for many of their resources including: Investigate the Possibilities Science, John Hudson Tiner's Exploring the History Of... series, Wonders of Creation series, and other stand-alone titles. These provide parents the framework and structure to use their resources for course credit. While the format varies a bit by PLP, most include a weekly lesson schedule (with 180 total lessons), student worksheets, quizzes, tests, and an answer key. Lesson schedules also include space to record dates and grades. For most courses, lessons will take approximately 30-45 minutes. Labs are occasionally recommended in the beginning of a PLP, but they are optional, not scheduled in. PLPs are reproducible for family or small group use (ten or less). These planners do a great job of turning their resources into a complete curriculum. Science PLPs are listed below with the resources they are designed to be used with. Packages made with the resources and PLP are also available. Please see more extensive information on our website. - Donna
