Introduction to Archaeology and Geology Course Description This is the suggested course sequence that allows one core area of science to be studied per semester. You can change the sequence of the semesters per the needs or interests of your student; materials for each semester are independent of one another to allow flexibility. Semester 1: Archaeology The Archaeology Book takes you on an exciting exploration of history and ancient cultures. You will learn both the techniques of the archaeologist and the accounts of some of the richest discoveries of the Middle East that demonstrate the accuracy and historicity of the Bible. You will unearth: how archaeologists know what life was like in the past, why broken pottery can tell more than gold or treasure can, some of the difficulties in dating ancient artifacts, how the brilliance of ancient cultures demonstrates Godas creation, history of ancient cultures, including the Hittites, Babylonians, and Egyptians, the early development of the alphabet and its impact on discovery, the numerous archaeological finds that confirm biblical history, and why the Dead Sea scrolls are considered such a vital breakthrough. Filled with vivid full-color photos, detailed drawings, and maps, you will have access to some of the greatest biblical mysteries ever uncovered. Semester 2: Geology Rocks firmly anchored to the ground and rocks floating through space fascinate us. Jewelry, houses, and roads are just some of the ways we use what has been made from geologic processes to advance civilization. Whether scrambling over a rocky beach, or gazing at spectacular meteor showers, we canat get enough of geology! The Geology Book will teach: what really carved the Grand Canyon, how thick the Earthas crust is, why the Earth is unique for life, the varied features of the Earthas surface-from plains to peaks, how sedimentary deposition occurs through water, wind, and ice, effects of erosion, ways in which sediments become sedimentary rock, fossilization and the age of the dinosaurs, the powerful effects of volcanic activity, continental drift theory, radioisotope and carbon dating, geologic processes of the past. Our planet is a most suitable home. Its practical benefits are also enhanced by the sheer beauty of rolling hills, solitary plains, churning seas and rivers, and majestic mountainsaall set in place by processes that are relevant to todayas entire population of this spinning rock we call home.Parent Lesson Plan a Promotion Now turn your favorite Master Books into curriculum! ... worksheets, quizzes, tests, and answer keys I Additional teaching helps and insights I Complete with all you need to quickly and easily begin your education program today! ... 1 year 7th a 9th grade 1a2 Credit Package Includes: Exploring the History of Medicine; Exploring the World of Biology; Parent Lesson anbsp;...
