Apologetics / Worldview for 6-14 yr olds?

You Betcha! We have been blessed to be able to use Apologia’s What We Believe Series – Who Am I this winter. We received the whole package as part of being on The Old Schoolhouse Review Crew – Book, CD, Notebooking Journal and Coloring Sheet. I can tell you at first, I was a bit overwhelmed.  The materials are so – well – curriculum like. Ha.  Trusting the website that says that the focus is for 6-14 year olds – we sat down, read through the instruction pages, and started on lesson one.

I enjoy having the Notebooking Pages. The beginning of the notebook tells the student what will be expected each day, and outlines a simple plan to go through the course.  With the addition of the CD – the entire book is on Audio. This is really great for my son who does not learn well through reading silently. A cheerful lady reads him through the book, section by section. while my younger son draws or colors, and listen in.

Now that we are progressing through the lessons, Nathan is able to open his notebook, see how many pages to expect to listen to, pop in the CD, and then reflect in his journal. Oh – and about the CD – when you put it in, a mini MP3 Player type program opens, loads a full index, so that you can easily find the lesson and section that you need.  Nice.  I asked Nathan what he thought this evening – and he says – “They haven’t really taught me anything new yet.”  Well, we are on the beginning lessons, and after so many years of Good News Club and AWANA, I would hope the introductions would be review. What I am looking forward to, since I read ahead, are the Worldview parts of it.  Learning about how other cultures learn about God, and thinking about the different groups of people, different ways people worship, putting the plumb line back to the word, and sorting it out by asking questions.  We are doing parts of this as a family – but you could do this totally as a child let activity.  Want to learn more?  Here’s the Website’s Information:PhotobucketFrom Apologia: “Our children are bombarded on a daily basis with competing messages. Every song, movie, book, TV show, blog, and game is full of ideas—ideas about truth, morality, beauty, identity, faith, and more. Not all of these ideas are true. Some are wrong, some are deceptive, and some are outright destructive. It is more important than ever that young children be equipped to discern among competing ideas and stand in the truth. This is why Apologia has teamed with Summit Ministries to bring you the “What We Believe” Series. The “What We Believe” Series is an outstanding way to teach your child the essential beliefs of the Christian faith, but it’s so much more! With this student-directed, Bible-based curriculum, your children will learn how to use Scripture as a lens through which to view the world around them—to see everything the way God sees it—and know the truth.” Have more questions?

  1. I’ve been looking at this! Sticker shock has kept me away…I love the topics you’re describing from the index and that goes along with what we are studying with our Eastern Hemisphere…Need to do some thinking and praying. Thanks for the IRL review!
