Does your student enjoy hands-on learning? Do you have a student who loves to be creative and make things his own? Have you searched high and low for a quality Christian science book for elementary kids? If so, our Flying Creatures full color lapbook is what you’ve been searching for!
The Young Explorer series by Jeannie Fulbright is the #1 science program for Christian kids. Our Flying Creatures lapbook is designed to go right along with Mrs. Fulbright’s Flying Creatures of the Fifth Day science book (Zoology 1).
About the book
In this book, your children will begin exploring the dynamics of flight and animal classification, understanding why the design we see in these incredible flying creatures points us to our Creator God. Then, get ready for the exciting adventure of learning about birds! Your children will not only learn how to attract various bird species to your yard, but will also learn to identify them by looking at their special physical characteristics, diverse nests, and interesting domestic practices. In addition, they will learn the anatomy and glorious design that enables birds to do the remarkable things that they do. The text contains actual experiments on the preferences and habits of the birds your children see. These experiments further enrich their learning experience.
After becoming amateur ornithologists, your children will explore the world of chiropterology, which is the study of bats. They will be able to intelligently share with others the value of bats in our world while exposing the misconceptions that most people have regarding these docile creatures of the night. Your children will then investigate entomology, the study of insects. They will learn to scientifically classify insects they find in their yard by a simple glance at their wings and other important characteristics. In addition to designing experiments with flies, crickets, darkling moths, and caterpillars, they will also learn how to attract and catch insects for scientific study.
After your children complete this study of Zoology, they will never view nature in the same way again. Their eyes will be open to the different species that live in their midst, and they will enjoy and understand nature to the fullest. Vacations will become educational experiences as they notice birds and insects inhabiting the areas they visit. By learning to keep a field journal, they will be able to notice unusual circumstances or sudden increases in bird or insect populations. They will become true scientists as they come to know nature and the fascinating world that God created.
