Considering God’s Creation ~ Review


For my final review for the TOS Crew we were very happy to receive a product for one of our favorite subjects ~ science.  I received Considering God’s Creation from Eagles Wings Education Materials


About Considering God’s Creation

Considering God’s Creation is a natural science curriculum with a biblical perspective.  It is designed for 2nd to 7th grade, although it is adaptable for younger or older students.  We received the Student Manual, which has 268 pages, Teachers manual, and audio CD.  

Considering God’s Creation contains 36 lessons which cover the following topics:

  • Creation
  • The Universe: Stars, Sun and Planets
  • The Earth
  • Non-Living Things: Rocks and Minerals
  • Weather
  • The Plant Kingdom
  • The Animal Kingdom
  • Animal Anatomy & Physiology
  • Man: Made in God’s Image

Here is a sample of what the workbook pages look like, image

and here is a sample page from the Teacher’s Manual. image

What I Thought

There is so much that I love about this curriculum!  The lessons are broken down so you can teach one lesson per week.  I didn’t have to buy a lot of extras ~ just a notebook.  At the beginning of the  lesson it gives you a simple list of what you will need during the lesson (crayons, glue, scissors, etc.).  Each lesson contains:

  • Vocabulary
  • Introduction to the lesson
  • Song/Poem
  • Bible Reading
  • Activity
  • Notebook
  • Evolution Stumpers
  • Review
  • Digging Deeper

What I loved the most ~ I was able to pick up the Teacher’s Manual and get right to it and what I was teaching was from a biblical prospective!  We are going to continue using Considering God’s Creation this summer.

Considering God’s Creation (including Teacher’s Manual, Student Notebook, and CD) is available from Eagle’s Wings for $29.95.  Additional Student workbooks are available for $13.95 each.

This product was given to me for review purposes, and I do not have to return the product to the vendor. I was not paid for this post. All opinions expressed in this post are mine.

Cindy, I really enjoyed your review. We plan on continuing to use this course as well. My last review is tomorrow. It's been a fun, busy year. Have a great summer!

We used this curriculum this last school year and really enjoyed it! The kids would ask to do extra science work, so you know that's a good sign!

We are finishing up CGC this year. We have used it for two consecutive school years. We sometimes chase down rabbit trails for a while and it takes us longer to finish a curriculum. :)

Also, I want to thank you for all the links you shared over on the Crew forum about the Little House on the Prairie Study! You are so sweet! Thanks again!
