When we started home educating our darling daughters, one of many contributing factors that helped us to make the decision was the fact that evolution is taught as fact in schools. In fact, we battle to find ANY kind of material to use for science lessons, be it online, in the library, or in many of the available home education curricula that doesn’t assume evolution is truth.
We want our children to be taught the Truth about the earth, how it was created, and how it works, and it’s frustrating not being able to find supporting materials. While Papa Bear and I have learnt and studied a lot of this stuff ourselves, without having it written down somewhere reliable, we don’t always cover all the bases in our teaching.
That’s why we were so thrilled with the curriculum available from Oikos Family Ministries, which includes the Apologia Science books. We haven’t used them yet, but from the research we’ve done and reviews we’ve read, they look absolutely fabulous. I can’t wait to get a set and start working through them with my girls.
So, just imagine my surprise and delight when I discovered today that there’s a competition online at the moment to WIN some of these books! How fantastic and wonderfully timed!
If you want to win (please don’t – I want to win!!) just click here and follow the instructions. I’d say “good luck” but you’d know I didn’t mean it since I really am that selfish, but have a look at the rest of the blog and the Apologia review anyway, it’s really a good resource.
Oh okay, Good Luck. I mean it.
