I didn't get much of a chance to use this book for "school" because my 12 year old picked it up and devoured it without my prompting! He walked around all the while he was reading it spewing out facts about the solar system that I didn't know myself We enjoy all of Jeannie Fulbright's books

We are loving the Astronomy book and plan on using the rest of the Apologia Elementary Science Books The lapbooks & lesson plans are great tools with this book I can't wait to start 3rd grade with Exploring Creation with Botany

We LOVE this program! I have 4 kids 9 7 5 3 and we do it all together in the evenings with Dad They have learned so much (almost as much as Mom and Dad have learned! :) I think the activities have really made a difference They understood orbit vs rotation because it had them get up and orbit each other while rotating The notebooks are a treasure! It shows the progression of how much they have learned If you look at the lesson on the sun the youngest has the least info and it keeps working itself up Plus from what they said/wrote you can tell that they learned something I also really appreciate how it all is based on God She backs up what she says with "proof" Being able to teach our children science and know that it still all centers around God and how he made things is a true blessing I would recommend this to anyone! We look forward to learning from these books for many years!!!

We have swapped out all our science books for Apologia! This curriculum has been a huge timesaver for us! The kids can do this independently I love how they explain experiments step-by-step as well instead of assuming a parent will be there to assist them We are a super frugal family and this has been worth the investment in buying this particular curriculum My kids also retain the majority of what they have learned and share it with us frequently Apologia has definitely figured out how to master teaching science!

Ok I knew my kids would like this but I didn't expect to like it so much myself! I find myself reading this book in my free time because it is so interesting! My husband also enjoys it and it often gets pulled out and discussed at the dinner table All I can say is BUY IT! So worth every penny! I also bought the lab kit and I really recommend that as well-for me I end up looking at the things needed at the last minute and putting off driving to town to get them for a couple days so it is handy to have it all in one box ready when needed and requiring fewer trips to town for me :)

We're using the Well-Trained Mind classical curriculum and while "Exploring Creation with Astronomy" was not one of the recommended texts for grammar stage astronomy I'm glad we adopted this as it gave a little more backbone to our astronomy rotation than what Well-Trained Mind's recommendations would have offered (we did use their recommendations as supplements however) There are 14 lessons in this book and my 2nd grader had no problem learning the material The lessons are well-structured with simple and enjoyable experiments in each lesson Most of the experiments do not require specialty equipment but mostly only household items (although you'll want to get a couple of good sized magnifying glasses for the homemade telescope experiment) Our whole family enjoyed this I feel it was a wonderful introduction to astronomy I'd love to see more grammar stage science books from Apologia because this one was especially good

This is an awesome book!
I absolutely love this book! It is very Christ-centered and very well done! I love the activities. My students always looked forward to this class. It is interesting and has a lot of hands on activities.

My kids really enjoyed Exploring Creation with Astronomy We didn't do many of the experiments but the kids loved reading through the text with me For those that are new to Apologia's elementary series the books go in order of Creation: space and Earth plants flying creatures and insects swimming creatures land animals and humans (anatomy) The Exploring Creation series is very Creation based and has incorporates many examples of evidence of a creator throughout the text The books are written in conversation formThere are experiments listed in the books The Notebooking Journals have additional experiment ideas listed and small lists of further related books and sometimes DVDsAstronomy is a nice start for younger elementary students because there is less text than some of the other books in the series It also gives a nice start on how God created the Heavens and the Earth before going on to learn about His other creation We liked the Astronomy book so much that we have continued on with the series So far we have done Botany and Zoology 1 too When I have suggested not doing Apologia this year because we have started My Father's World (which includes science) the kids begged to still do Apologia and start the Zoology 2 If your kids enjoy learning about space they will enjoy Apologia's Astronomy!

We totally LOVE this astronomy study! I am amazed with the amount of information I have learned right alongside my children--I have been doing this with my kindergarten and second graders this year and they have learned so much! I love the notebooking ideas and project and assignment ideas Also included are narration questions and the answers are in the back of the book This has been totally easy to use and my children have learned much more than I ever imagined! I also like that the book is focused on God as Creator and how perfectly He has created our world The chapters on the earth and the moon are just absolutely awesome! If there was ever any reason you doubted that God created the world then these 2 chapters are a MUST READ!

You can't go wrong with any of the Apologia Exploring Creation series This one was one of our boy's favorite studies With a Christian aspect in every chapter; it's fun to see how God created this earth I as a parent have learned so much I intend to save all these books as a reference/encyclopedia guide in our library The photos are great the questions help with great review and the activities are just the right amount of variety for all ages

Our co-op is doing this program next year with all 1-6 graders.

I am not at all science minded, but I have child who is. This series looks like it will be easy enough for me to work though with him as well as satisfy his science cravings.

We loved their Human Anatomy science book and the kids are looking forward to this one since my kids are really into space right now.

How long is each lesson supposed to take. In other words is this an entire years' curriculum?
A shopper on Dec 12, 2015
BEST ANSWER: You can make it last as long as you want. I have a 2nd grader and we make each lesson last 2 weeks. We do science 3 days a week so it will last us the school year. You could do it everyday and it would last a "semester." Just depends how you like to do science.
