Exploring Creation with Zoology 1: Flying Creatures of the Fifth Day, 2nd edition presents a scientifically sound and God-honouring study of all flying creatures for grades K-6.
In this zoology title, your child learns about the glorious design and characteristics of flying creatures, including physical characteristics, nesting habits, flight patterns, and more! Your children will learn how to attract various bird species to your yard and identify them by looking at their special physical characteristics, diverse nests, and interesting domestic practices.
After becoming amateur ornithologists, your children will explore the world of chiropterology, which is the study of bats. They will be able to intelligently share with others the value of bats in our world while exposing the misconceptions that most people have regarding these docile creatures of the night. Your children will also investigate entomology, the study of insects. They will learn to scientifically classify insects they find in their yard by a simple glance at their wings and other important characteristics. In addition to designing experiments with flies, crickets, moths, and caterpillars, they will also learn how to attract and catch insects for scientific study.
When your children complete this first of 3 studies of zoology, they will never view nature in the same way again. Their eyes will be open to the different species that live in their midst, enjoying and understanding nature to the fullest. Vacations will become educational experiences as they notice birds and insects inhabiting the areas they visit. They will become true scientists as they come to know nature and the fascinating world of flying creatures that God created.
