No Kidding…Heaven Is For Real

Often times, we’ve all wondered if Heaven is actually ‘for real’.  It’s something that we haven’t seen or a place that we haven’t yet visited.  We’ve heard the stories of how wonderful it is.  We’ve read the scriptures on how great it will be when we do get there.  The anticipation is great for most of us.  The longing to meet our King, to adore Him and to finally see what our destination looks like!  Most often we ask ourselves if Heaven Is For Real when we go through the loss of a loved one.  We try to find reasoning, understanding.  We need that comfort of knowing that our loved one is in a place, where on some wonderful day, we can see them again.  That we can see their face, their smile and to know that it will be forever.  Then, at that point nothing can take that away.  That is comforting.

That being said,  we all need to know that there is a place called ‘home’.  No matter where you’re at in life, you need to know that you have a ‘home’.  Some of us rely on the Word of God for that confirmation…

‘He will wipe every tear from their eyes. There will be no more death or mourning or crying or pain, for the old order of things has passed away.”He who was seated on the throne said, “I am making everything new!” Then he said, “Write this down, for these words are trustworthy and true.”  – Revelation 21:4-5

Some of us rely on other peoples testimonies of having visions of Heaven or prophetic words.  But, when we hear the testimonies of someone actually going to Heaven and coming back to this Earth…that is what God uses as well.  God uses so many ways to give us comfort and a hope.  He uses people, He uses YOU, and He tells His side…which is always better.

Learn the Life Cyle with Real Chicks… Well, Almost Real

Well I’m no scientist or doctor or biologist… but I have been asked, way too many times when teaching the life cycle unit, this question, “Which Came First… The Chicken or the Egg?” If I wasn’t able to refer to Genesis 1:24, I definitely wouldn’t know the answer… but Learning Resources created an amazing tool to allow our younger students to really see what a 21-day cycle inside the egg would look like.

Chick Life Cycle Exploration Set by Learning Resources

Chick Life Cycle Exploration Set by Learning Resources

This Chick Life Cycle Exploration Set by Learning Resources offers each egg as a cross-section so the students can visually see each stage as the chick develops. With this set you can easily develop a unit integrating many subject areas:

Science: Students discover 21-days of development inside the egg. They are able to observe the development and compare to other creatures. They can also make an educated hypothesis for the following day based on what they have seen so far.

Language: With a list of scientific vocabulary included, students are able to study and correlate the words with what they are seeing and learning in the daily cycle.

Writing: Allow the students to write a creative piece as if they were growing in the mind of the chick. This will give you the opportunity as a teacher to teach them about imaginative thinking and writing.

Reading: Read a unit of books based on chickens! Here are some suggestions:

  • Chickerella by Mary Jane and Herm Auch
  • The Red Hen by Rebecca Emberly and Ed Emberly
  • Farm by Elisha Cooper

Field Trip: Who doesn’t love a good outing! Besides all the preparation, its always a blast and a great learning experience for your students. After the 21 days are all completed, I would encourage you and your class to go to a farm or local zoo. It’ll give them a chance to see the whole unit through and of course… have another perspective on life development!
