Wildlife Wednesday - for your homeschool

Wildlife Wednesdays

Wildlife Wednesdays is here! We are celebrating wildlife with Master Books and Creation Conversations. If you haven't heard of Creation Conversations - well, I'd hate to see you miss out on such a great resource. If you are interested in, or teaching God's creation vs. the theory of evolution to your kids - even if you are just curious about the differences and the scientific evidence which leads us to choose creation - it's a wonderful resource. 

Each Wednesday - I'll be teaming up with MB/CC and my good friend Kathy Balman from Kathy's Cluttered Mind to bring you fun facts - animal profiles and information - interviews with authors and scientists - and a closer look at the fingerprints of God on His creation. 

I hope you are as excited about this as I am. It's a great way to share information to enhance our homeschool studies, to encourage each other in our teaching, and to share the Word through science. Here's a peek at one of our recent adventures: 

Did you know that scientists have used the design of the butterfly wing

- biomimicry - to develop technology that improves health,

 advances technology, fights crime, and saves lives?

Look for that story on November 14 in my column @ Homeschool Mosaics  where I write about Exploring Science - Naturally. 

The resources from Master Books are incredible. It's changed our homeschool. I hope you will dive in to this project with us and enhance yours! 

We are using the hashtag #hswildlife on twitter and have a Pinterest board with wildlife info here. 

Be sure to enter the Master Books giveaway here.  

For November we will be giving away a copy of Marvels of Creation - Magnificent Mammals.

Did You Know?

  • A camel can go without water 10 times longer than a human.
  • A cheetah can run up to 70 miles an hour.
  • 25,000 sharp-pointed quills cover the porcupine.
  • It's two feet long and weighs 132 pounds the heart of a giraffe.

Children and adults both will delight in this illustrated guide to animals of the world. Filled with spectacular photographs and "creature classifications" - it is great for any home or school library.
And God created every winged fowl after his kind: and God saw that it was good (Genesis 1:21)
