Use the glossary (pp. 77-78) to define the vocabulary words.
Have student draw a picture of Day 4 of creation.
Visit a planetarium to get an overall view of the stars, planets, constellations. (Caution: We know of no planetarium that presents the development of the lights in the heavens as recent, i.e., less than 10,000 years ago.)
