How and Why God Created the Universe -- Astronomy

(Approximate) Ages 12+


(Ages 12 and up; 67 pages) An excellent introductory section to this guidebook is an article by J. Reuben Clark, Jr., called “Who Was This Jesus?” In his remarks made to Brigham Young University students in 1951, President Clark shows how Jesus is the great “Creator and Destroyer of Universes.” His marvelous power is demonstrated in this testimony-building report.

The book is divided into ten divisions of study. All the basic research on the Universe will become a part of the student’s original textbook as they search the scriptures and define the vocabulary words. At the conclusion of their study of the four main divisions of Geology, students are asked to answer the question: WHY did God create the universe?

Students DEFINE, EXPLAIN, and ILLUSTRATE the major vocabulary words in each of the ten divisions of Astronomy. They then use religious writings or their scriptures of choice to study the spiritual existence of the universe.


The ten divisions and the major vocabulary words in this guidebook are:

The Universe





The Solar System
