The Notebooking Journal Is Complete!

The high school notebooking journal has been completed and turned in.  We now await the tweaking from the editors!

This 63-page (before editing anyway) study guide may be used for a 1- to 6-week overview of the theory of intelligent design, or for up to a half high-school credit in science if you wish to obtain the additional texts and complete all assignments.  I hope it will be helpful to homeschoolers and others who have wanted to study the theory of intelligent design and did not know where to start.

Follow me here to be the first to know when it is available!

Lapbook: The Theory of Intelligent Design

I suppose this is Step 2 of my writing journey.  Although I am working toward getting another children's book published as well, I am now working on curriculum.  Way back when I started homeschooling my first child and he was in kindergarten (he is in 9th grade now), I told my husband that I thought someday I would really like to write homeschool curriculum.  I had no idea where you would go to do that kind of thing, but I was getting a pretty good idea of what types of things I'd like to have for school that I could not find in print.

I praise God for giving me the opportunity!  If you've been reading this blog, you know that one of my passions is to teach young children about the theory of intelligent design.  Most of what is written is for older students or adults.  I am no scientist, but a study guide to break the hard stuff down for younger kids is right up my alley!

My first lapbook, "The Theory of Intelligent Design," is complete, and I sent it to the publisher Friday. Now it begins its journey under the editor's knife!  (If you are writing and are worried about the editing process, see !)

While the elementary-level lapbook is enduring the editing process, I am finishing up the high school version with notebooking pages.

Hopefully you'll be able to see these study guides soon at Knowledge Box Central!
