Indoctrination: Public Schools and the Decline of Christianity. Edited by Charles Laverdiere. Master Books: Green Forest, AR (2012)

I’m always leery of the book version of a film, especially documentaries and other nonfictional media, mostly because the “novelization” tends to rehash the same ground that I just covered in the movie. But every once in a while, the

The Curiosity Files: Quicksand by The Old Schoolhouse Magazine (2010)

In addition to a really cool lesson on how quicksand works and (for the budding Indiana Jones-type explorers in your home) how to survive if you get caught in it, there’s some great hands-on experiments and internet resources to help you expand and enhance your lesson even further. The labs explore two properties of water: surface tension and viscosity. Unlike some science lessons that claim to utilize “household items,” this one really does make use of simple things we all have hanging about the joint. That’s a definite plus! We haven’t had a chance to try the edible quicksand recipe yet, but there’s gonna be some very unlucky gummy bears in this house pretty soon!
