We LOVE Drive Thru History – Dave Stotts has a way of just drawing in young and old as you explore history! A recent Bible study we were doing together touched on archeology; how it can prove the Bible. For that reason my kids were extremely interested in checking out the new, Bible Unearthed from Drive Thru History® Adventures (we even have lifetime access)! What a blessing to us all!
Like I said, we are big fans of Drive Thru History® Adventures. Slowly building our collection, we have had so much fun learning history, and Bible too, in this adventurous way that brings it all to life! And Dave Stotts fun loving personality makes my kids love it all the more! In this series, I think I heard my kids a thousand times say, “He should put that down before he breaks it.” And my daughter would often ask why he was never taught to “see with your eyes.”
This is a 12-part series that explores the history, importance and impact of archaeology so that we can better understand the ancient world and of course. defend our faith! If you are familiar with Drive Thru History you are familiar with the travel involved as you go and see the places and things being discussed. This is different, but not in a bad way; in these lessons Dave sits with Titus Kennedy, PhD and Drive Thru History writer Randall Niles, as they look at the artifacts. Although we are not going, seeing the location for ourselves, we are still able to Dig Deeper with links to all sorts of relevant articles in the last section of each Adventure / episode. Each article is written by either Titus, resident Archaeologist or Randall, lead writer for Drive Thru History. These prove to be great for my son who tends to get quite curious and seeks to dig in all the more. I love his drive when something piques his interest.
This course is designed to be completed in 12 weeks – they even provide a course guide to help you stay on track. I do love though how they remind us that students all learn at different rates and so we should seek to find our own approach for our family. My very technical son especially enjoyed the section in each lesson titled Getting Technical. He is a boy who very much appreciates those little details. He even got ahold of a nice Biblical Timeline (another thing that he is extremely fond of).
So each lesson contains a video as well as a scriptural reading, further information including images, a worksheet with lesson summary, and articles you can read to dig deeper. There are also optional activities that come with most lessons. You can go as deep as you want; in some cases we even explored beyond this course, seeking out even more.
Whatever age your children are at, this is an amazing course, giving them the chance to learn about archeology and what it means in our life today. We are told in the Bible that we should be ready, always, to give an answer to every man for the hope that is in us. I do believe this is a wonderful way to increase our faith as we explore the world and see the Bible come to life. Perhaps you have a child who wants to get involved in archeology? They even have a lesson for that; not just how to get involved but also what life as an archeologist is like. This course finishes up with the question, What is Left to be Discovered? This is such an inspiring way to get our kids thinking about what “ancient garbage” there is still to discover.
