My children were aged 11, 8, and 7 when we completed this short study on Adam, the first man. I do not assign topics for writing, but writing is normally done about things we have done in "school", by choice.

Unit Study - Adam



Betty Lukens Felts

Adam and His Kin by Ruth Beechick - we do not recommend this book for young children who are easily confused in regard to facts. This is a fictionalized account of the Bible from Adam up to Abraham. However, it is a good resource for parents and older teens for a good perspective.

The Genesis Record by Henry Morris - again, this is a good resource for parents and older children. Written by a scientist, it gives a good perspective.

Lessons from History - Creation to 100 BC by Gail Schultz - a good resource for parents. It gives listings of books and suggested activities for the study of various men of history.

Some things we covered:
Adam's creation and his honorable position in creation as overseer/caretaker
Adam named all the animals, so he was creative and intelligent
Eve's creation and her necessity to Adam
Adam was given a job to do
God's law
Temptation and fall of man, consequence, need of sacrifice and the promise of a Savior
Cain and Abel, their jobs and the importance of them, their sacrifices, the murder and consequence of it
Genealogies - Metal tool makers, musicians and instruments, built cities, etc.
Enoch and Methuselah

The following was written by our oldest daughter after our study.

Adam and Eve

by Skyla

    Genesis 1:26a
    And God said, "Let us make man in our image, after our likeness."

In this verse, God has created a man named Adam, who lived in the Garden of Eden. God gave Adam a special job to do. His job was to name all of the animals in the Garden of Eden. Adam must have been very smart to name all of those animals.

But Adam was alone. He needed a companion. So God put Adam in a deep sleep, and took one of his ribs. Then God made Eve. When Adam woke up, he was surprised to see a beautiful woman.

God gave Adam and Eve one rule: "Every tree in the garden you may eat of, except the Tree of Knowledge of Good and Evil."

Then one day, the Devil went into a serpent or snake and said, "What did God say about this tree?"

Eve said, "God said that Adam and I are not supposed to eat the fruit of it, or even touch it. And if we do, we will die."

And the snake said, "You will not surely die. For God knows that if you eat the fruit, you will be as a god." This was a lie.

But Eve wanted to be a god. So she ate some fruit. She called Adam and gave him some, too. Then they noticed that they were naked! So they took some leaves and put them together for clothes, then hid.

When God came to talk to them, He saw that Adam and Eve were not there. He knew where they were but He still asked, "Adam, where are you?" Adam and Eve came out. Then God asked, "Did you eat from the Tree of Knowledge of Good and Evil?" Adam asnwered and said, "This woman you gave me, made me eat it."

Eve said, "But the serpent tricked me."

Then God called the serpent, and said, "From now on, you will crawl on your belly!" The serpent was very angry at Eve for "telling" on him.

Then God turned to Adam and Eve, and said, "Child birth will be painful, and it will be hard to grow things."

Then God killed a lamb for clothes for Adam and Eve. Adam and Eve were very sorry for what they did and they were sad because the lamb was killed.

Adam and Eve were very sorry, and often wished that they could undo that terrible sin.
