My Review:
 Homeschooling was God's passion and will for our family. And as many people eventually realize His will eventually after you accept it becomes yours as well. I never want to go back to the way it was with my children gone to public school. We love the way our household runs now and we never want to go back. Master Books makes it really easy for me to shop for my homeschool needs. I love their products and their website is very easy to navigate. They have something for every age range.

 While shopping for your junior high level children you can get kits, these kits also come ready for your high school students. You will get all the books you will need for the course plus the lesson plan book all for one affordable low price. With the Intro to Archaeology & Geology (Curriculum Pack), you will receive the very informative lesson plan book based on a 36 week long course. It lists all the books you will need and how to plan this course for your children.

 The Archaeology Book:
This book is one of Master Books that is created to teach multiple grade levels all in one book. This one for example has three different levels. You follow along in the book based on the page color that is designated for whatever grade level you are wanting to teach.

The entire Bible, it's people and the culture during that time has a lot of archaeology and artifacts that fascinate young minds and will draw them to a deeper understanding of all the Bible has to offer. This book and the rest in the pack or kit do just this and they are perfect for any age. There are numerous facts in the book as well as a glossary. Each day you read the material in the book as outlined in the lesson planner and do the worksheets that are available in the lesson planner. If you are interested in just this book, you can find it here or even better locate the entire kit here. It retails for $34.02.


The Geology Book:
This book is one of Master Books that is created to teach multiple grade levels all in one book. This one for example has three different levels. You follow along in the book based on the page color that is designated for whatever grade level you are wanting to teach.

Geology is interesting in the fact that it explains many things in the world around us. This book describes the process of erosion and everything that encompasses and creates in itself. It discusses volcanoes and earthquakes in detail and describes for the reader what takes place during the processes and explains what they leave in their aftermath. Another interesting fact that the book touches on is fossilization. My sons loved discussing these because of their fascination with dinosaurs.

Many of my children's questions can definitely be answered with books such as these. It educates them and tells them why there are several continents and how they were formed and it explains the fall of man and the Ice Age, it even explains how the Grand Canyon was formed. The Geology book is 80 pages long and even includes a 24" pull out poster. It follows the same method as others in the kit by reading the required reading for the day/week and then do the worksheets that are available in the planner. If you are interested in just this book, you can find it here or even better locate the entire kit here.

**Disclosure** This book was sent to me free of charge for my honest review through my participation on the Moms of Master Books Review Team.
