Mystery of History Volume 1 Week 1

Mystery of History Volume 1: Week 1: Creation, Adam and Eve, Jubal and Tubal-Cain

See my main page for this course and the explanations of resources used.

We started by looking at our giant Adams Chronological Chart of History and talking about how the Bible is not separate from history. It IS History. I read lessons 1-3 with Genesis 1-5 aloud to everyone. The older kids took notes on their timeline pages, while the younger kids did the “information pages.” That was followed by the mapping and timeline activities outlined in the Mystery of History Companion Guide.

Copywork for these lessons:

Lesson 1: Creation

This is the history of the heavens and the earth when they were created, in the day that the Lord God made the earth and the heavens.  Genesis 2:4

Lesson 2: Adam and Eve

So God created man in His own image; in the image of God He created him; male and female He created them. Genesis 1:27

Lesson 3: Jubal and Tubal Cain

Jubal and Tubal-Cain, who lived just 7 generations after Adam, are important because they help show us the intelligence of early man. (Linda Hobar)

You could also copy the poem by Rudyard Kipling, found here.

We completed all of the lessons in one week. As I mentioned on the main page for this Mystery of History study, my children are also doing in-depth apologetics and science courses on creation, so we did not add extra activities to the history lesson.
