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 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!!!

This year was the first year I've used the elementary Apologia science curriculum by Jeannie K Fulbright I wish I had found this curriculum earlier I believe my son would have enjoyed his science more in previous years After completing the course we have a wonderful astronomy notebook with his illustrations and notes on what he learned and actually enjoyedThis one book is the only book necessary for both student and teacher There was no prepatory work necessary to get him started for the day Some days he worked on his science entirely on his own with no help from mom! I only had to make sure he had everything necessary for the projects in each lesson The front of the book she lists everything needed to complete the projects The cost for the science book was minimal compared to other science curriculumI used the Apologia Physical Science with my 8th grader and will continue with the Apologia this year As with the elementary curriculum the text is very easy to use My older son learned more from this curriculum than earlier homeschool curriculum We will use the Biology next year and look forward to science The conversational approach to teaching has helped him to enjoy 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 :)

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

As not only a homeschooling mother but as someone who was homeschooled herself I must say I truly wish these books would have been around back when I was a childNot only do my children (4-9 yrs old) ALL love this book but I do as well It is well written simple enough even my 4 yr old enjoys reading and is learning yet solid and in-depth enough I am learning along with them And best of all we are ALL enjoying it!The free notebooking pages are great and the yahoo group (where you can ask questions and view messages from other users as well as the author herself) is a valuable resource for the entire seriesMy boys are already looking forward to the rest of the books and I must admit so am I !!!I plan to use them all at least once and most likely will revisit them at a later date with at least my younger twoIf you want a solid and God honoring basis for science on an elementary level this series is the best I have ever seen or heard about!~Rachel(Homeschooling 3 boys and loving learning with them!)

I am so glad I found this book! I bought it on an impulse at a book fair last year and we love it! We have made a lap book with a section on each chapter My children always ask for me to read more than we need to for our lesson We took a field trip to a local university that has an observatory I was very pleased that my children had learned so much from this book and were able to ask detailed questions of the astronomers that were at the observatory We are very pleased with this well written curriculum that supports our Christian Worldview We are looking forward to the Zoology study as we finished this book in a semester instead of year!

Vivid descriptions and illustrations, from a biblical perspective.

I've heard a lot of wonderful things about the Exploring Creation series. And I want my kids to have a Biblical perspective of science.

I wanted an astronomy book to read to my children with a God-exalting view of the universe. I have heard this is awesome in that regard, but that the pictures are less than awesome.....so I also got the DK Visual Encyclopedia of Space, because the pictures look awesome....so I'm going to use them together.

We have used the middle school version, and are very happy with it. I have 6 kids, and like to be consistent, as long as it works for each child.

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.

Is this the first edition or second?
Jennifer T on Jun 18, 2016
BEST ANSWER: The item you tagged (#9088) is the First Edition. We also have the new 2nd Edition. Those numbers are #19866 (text), #19865 (notebooking journal), and #19834 - junior notebooking journal). The two editions can not be used interchangeably.
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.
What is the difference between the first and second editions?
A shopper on Jul 18, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Per the publisher: there is updated content in all chapters, new illustrations and graphics,
