I think it’s time for another Science Series! This is the first post in our new Earth Science Series!
One of my favorite reasons to homeschool is the ability to custom tailor our studies to my children’s interests. This is very easy to do especially in Science. Archaeology is fun because you can combine science and history into one!

When studying Archaeology (especially when you learn about fossils and dinosaurs) I have found a lot of conflicting information on the age of the Earth and evolution. If you teach from a Creationist, young Earth viewpoint make sure you check out the resources at Answers in Genesis!
Answers in Genesis

They have many resources on Archaeology from a Creationist, young earth perspective. There are challenging and interesting blog posts, magazine articles, research papers and more.
