 C1 - Episode 12 - Plant Systems, Muslim Empire | File Type: audio/mp3 | Duration: Unknown

It is week 12 and hurrah for the midway break!  Take some time during the break to enjoy your kiddos, read GREAT books (https://www.sunshineandoranges.com/resources), and review the memory work! History for this week is about the Muslim Empire and Sara talks about how to pray for them. www.30daysofprayer.com Science, Amy talks about plant systems. It is so interesting what plants do to help produce oxygen for the planet!

 C1 - Episode 11 - flower parts, Byzantine Empire & Constantine | File Type: audio/mp3 | Duration: Unknown

History this week we dive into an interesting background about persecution in the church, Constantine, and the Byzantine Empire.  Science is equally as dazzling because we get to check out all the flower parts and why they are needed. We even talk a bit about plant reproduction. Here is a link to our book lists that you can use to match up for your reading this week: https://www.sunshineandoranges.com/resources

 C1 - Episode 8 - Seed Plants, Imperialism and Ghandi | File Type: audio/mp3 | Duration: Unknown

In science today we tie together the Baby Bean experiment to the types of seed plants there are: Monocot or Dicot? Or is it a conifer? For history, we go over some information about the Age of Imperialism in India and the passive resistance movement. Here is a link to some recommended books by week/subject: https://www.dropbox.com/s/vhz817l162hm941/8.18.18%20Cycle%20One%20Book%20Lists%20by%20week%20by%20subject.pdf?dl=0 

 C1 - Episode 7 - Reproduction, Hinduism and Buddhism | File Type: audio/mp3 | Duration: Unknown

For science today we discuss the different types of reproduction but not without a disclaimer: I don't go into great detail about conception because this is a personal family choice as to when it is introduced. We recommend listening to the podcast first before having your kiddos hear it (if you do that). Both Sara and I recommend the by-age-appropriate series, God's Design for Sex.  History is also another one to be advised of this week: Hindduism and Buddhism. We have talked about learning the pagan gods before and this is no different. We cannot refute that which we do not understand. Learning the different religions of the world will help us to understand early on an appropriate biblical worldview about them.  We are praying for you as you enjoy this new season of the year!

 C1 - Episode 3 - Greek and Roman gods and Animal Cells | File Type: audio/mp3 | Duration: Unknown

Cells are the building blocks of living things. Have you ever wondered what makes up a cell? Are there things inside of a cell that helps me move and function? We are discussing Animal Cells today on the podcast for science with Amy. We are designed by our Creator in heaven to worship something. Whether humans have gotten it right or not, we all have this natural desire to be drawn into something or someone to praise and enjoy. Throughout the Bible and history, sadly, people got this way wrong. We talk about some of those Greek and Roman gods in the podcast today with Sara for history. Don't worry, Sara does an excellent job shedding some biblical worldview light on this subject.
