I am a wife, homeschool mom, a hiker, and a photographer living in Oklahoma. I love beautiful light and being in the woods. I share what I love on this blog, be they trails, pictures, or homschooling curriculum. Thanks for stopping by!

  • Creation Study ~Day 1 Light, Day & Night


    “Then God said, “Let there be light”; and there was light. And God saw the light, that it was good;

    and God divided the light from the darkness. God called the light Day, and the darkness he called Night.

    So the evening and the morning were the first day.”

    Genesis 1:3-5


    For our science for the next 6 weeks(maybe 7) we are studying Scientific Creationism and a science subject to go with each day of creation.

    Week 1 was the study of Day 1 so we studied light, Day and Night.

    We are reading the corresponding lesson from the “Answers for Kids curriculum” as well as “Case for a Creator for Kids“.

    This is our second time reading the Case for a Creator, my boys are getting so much out of it this time around!

    I let the boys play with playdough sometimes while I read.

    There is a nice Creation Study Unit on this site that I have been using as a reference also.

    The Max Axiom book “The illuminating world of Light” is a great way to introduce the subject.

    The Magic Schoolbus show has a great episode on light called “Makes a rainbow”.

    We got the “Bending Pencil” experiment from here.

    Sciencekids has a really good section on light with experiments also.

    We did there experiment on absorbing heat and the boys loved it!

    I just forgot to take any pictures…

    My oldest read Children’s biographies on Thomas Edison and Albert Einstein.

    I would like to say it was intentional on my part that these went along with our lesson but it was complete serendipity.

    I love when that happens.

    My son and I like the Graphic Novel Biographies best.

    They are colorful and look like comic books!

    We are covering one Day of creation for a week.

    Answersingenesis.org has a great kids section so be sure to check them out for more info on Creation!

    Let me know if you have any questions!
