Living Books Curriculum Guarantees a Love of History

Explore Ancient Times: Creation -Ancient Egypt

Using a Living books curriculum - a book list -  as a basis for a homeschool history curriculum is not only simple, but yet, extremely effective in developing a love of learning, an understanding of the historical time period and knowledge of different cultures.

Once you've chosen the time period which you will study, find some excellent read aloud books - and begin the study by snuggling up on the couch and getting right into the time period.  There is nothing that beats sitting together and sharing a book.  Historical fiction living books allow you to enter the time period and live life for a while with the main character.

Great Questions to Ask to develop the History Topic

As you walk through the pages, you'll see the sights, experience the culture, enter the homes and understand the battles that the main character needs to deal with.  How will he face difficulties?  What should he do?  How is it different to today?  What would you do?  

Living books really allow you as the reader to enter their world. It is a great time to arouse interest in the time period and open up great discussion points. From here, you can look for books which explore the culture, geography, war and weapons, dress, food and jump into a complete study.

The New Answers Book

 By Ken Ham / Master Book

One  can either take the Bible as the basis for scientific truth or use  ever-changing evolutionary assumptions as the foundation for your  biblical and scientific knowledge. The Bible-as-base model resolves  contradictions and gives concrete answers; the evolution-as-base model  is as unsure as building a house on sand. Ken Ham knows this, and wants  to provide families and individuals with the answers to questions  raised by the media's wholesale acceptance of evolution, be it human or  cosmic.

Unafraid to take on the tough questions, Ham and the  other authors he has assembled eviscerate notions of millions of years,  gap theory, dinosaurs turning into birds, and a local flood. Moreover,  they give the basic facts behind the Ice Age, distant starlight,  carbon-14 and radiometric dating techniques, and the supposed proofs  for evolution.

Perhaps best of all, and what sets this book  above others of its kind, are the final two chapters which are  instructional to evangelism. Showing how this information can be used  in witnessing and how dinosaurs can be used in spreading the Gospel  message as given in the Creation narrative. Adults, kids, believers,  nonbelievers, creationist and evolutions can all benefit from this  resource.

Other books for this age:
Did Adam have a Belly Button?
Did Eve really have an Extra Rib?

Ken Ham, president and CEO of Answers in Genesis and The Creation Museum, told The Christian Post: "In a world that is becoming increasingly secularized and biased, it's time for Christians to do something of this size and this magnitude."
