Theory of Intelligent Design Lapbook Journal

Theory of Intelligent Design Lapbook Journal

If a man is walking through the woods and finds a perfectly-functioning pocket watch lying on a stump, does he assume that the random forces of nature placed all of the parts together in exactly the right places to form a sophisticated time-piece, or does he assume that a clock-maker has passed that way before? This question, posed by natural theologian William Paley circa 1802, has led to the modern study of intelligent design. What is the study of intelligent design? Where can a student find resources to understand this subject? This Lapbook Journal combines journaling with Lapbooking to help your student create a notebook that shows a true understanding of this subject. Written by a homeschool mother, it includes an extensive Study Guide on the most up-to-date research, as well as a journaling section and a section to make optional Lapbook pages. Each section includes suggested resources for further study, and there are links to videos and websites to further enhance learning. Use for a few weeks to get a general overview of the study of intelligent design, or spend 50 class hours completing all sections and some suggested further resources for a one-half high school credit in Science. This ebook format includes a downloadable PDF file. Just follow the instructions to create your own Lapbook Journal. This Lapbook was designed for 6th-12th grade students, but younger students may enjoy the challenge as well. Please also check out our Theory of Intelligent Design Lapbook, designed for K-8th grade students. BOTH of these products use the SAME Study Guide so that your entire family may study this fascinating subject together.

Gradual Change in Nazi Germany

Gradual Change in Nazi Germany

A powerpoint, worsearch, timeline, video and youtube video about how Nazi Germany gradually slid into more and more extreme versions of anti-semitism. It chronicles the dates of some of the 2000 laws passed against Jews in the years following Hitler's election in 1933, and attempts to answer the question HOW did normal people allow, and participate, in the Holocaust. It attempts to answer this to help students understand how vigilance in any society, and the trends within it, are something any healthy citizen should take part in. The Key Learning Question is: How did the Holocaust happen? Activities are differentiated, and extension activities are included. Resources suited for yr.6 (10yo) and up.

The Holocaust: The Ghettos

The Holocaust: The Ghettos

This lesson combines real photographs of the Ghettos and text from Nazi memoranda about what the Ghettos were and where it fit into the 'final solution.' It also includes 4 edited clips of the film the pianist which are very moving, and at times hard to watch, which have learning questions included which can be paused on. The film is a 15, but any violence has been edited out if it was felt to be too much for KS3. Please do watch the clips first, however, just to make sure you feel your students won't be overly distressed. The clips have to be watched in VLC, not media player, and are a little quiet, but are really very powerful ways for students to empathise with what life was like in the Ghettos. Learning questions include: What were the ghettos? What was life like in the ghettos? Why might it have been difficult to keep believing in God as a Jewish person in the Ghettos? There is a homework included, as are extension activities.
