Invaluable Tool for Apologia Science
I highly recommend ALL Apologia Science curriculum. The text could be completed without purchasing a notebook, but I wouldn’t want to try it that way. The notebook has a daily planner which is invaluable to lesson planning, and it contains everything needed to complete the course. I consider it a “must have” purchase.

I've used Apologia text books in the past, but this is the first year I purchased the notebook to go along with the text book. I purchased one for each of my daughters, and I'm so glad I did. The notebooks definitely reinforce what is being read, provide plenty of space to record answers, include the "on your own questions", study guides, colored illustrations, scientific lab reports to complete when doing experiments, extra (optional) summary practice, and provide a daily recommended schedule that is easy to follow and ensures we are staying on track to finish the book within the year.

Time saver and organizer
It saved our family time to have all the On Your Own questions, Study Guide questions, and lab templates pre-written. It helps the students keep all their notes, OYO answers, Study Guide answers, and lab reports in one place.

Must-have for stress-free year!
This is optional, but really is worth getting. It has a schedule to follow. It helps kids organize and write lab reports. With two kids doing science together, they each have their own notebook to do. We love this!

study skills, lesson plans, lab reports
I use this note booking journal and others by apologia with all 4 of my kids ages 8-18. From writing definitions to filling out graphic organizers, they are wonderful for teaching students HOW to study. The pre-made lesson plans are easy to check off or highlight as we go - though we often alter the plans to meet our needs. The lab report forms are a great tool and save kids time setting up the report. A grading rubric is included. When using this notebook along with the text we consider it an English/Science unit study and give credit for both subjects.

Awesome book!
My son hasn't started using it yet, but it looks awesome! Bought my curriculum through sonlight but they didn't offer this book. I just happened to find it on this website. It will keep him organized and has all the labs neatly organized with questions to fill in. I will definitely purchase the biology book next year also!

Needed for Homeschool Year
Christy L on Jul 8, 2019
I already have this curriculum and have used it with my older kids. The workbook helps the students do their work more independently. I have two students left to take this course and wanted to purchase it while it is still available.

We used this for my son, and it helped him learn to studying for his science tests independently, so now I’m ordering more for my other 3 children since they have switched to a new edition.

Trying for the first time. Used at our home school co-op.

We tried to use this text without the Notebooking Journal. But by Module 5 we realized how valuable the Notebooking journal is in reinforcing the information being learned.

Marliese C on Sep 7, 2018
A friend recommended. In the past I have used lapbook products and I know this son would not like that method.

I feel the notebooks really cement learning. We are pairing the notebooks with both the book and the CD-Rom for two of our middle-school children this year.

This was required for my son's 7th grade science class. I often buy used books; but the students write in these notebooks, so it is best to buy a new one for each student.
Mary Ann M on Jun 26, 2018
For homeschool 7th grade.

Is there an answer key that goes along with this notebook?
User on Apr 26, 2019
BEST ANSWER: The student notebook is basically used to direct students to take notes in some sections they read, provides the questions and places for answers to the On Your Own Questions, Chapter Study Guide, and Chapter Summary, as well as to record the lab results and write up the labs. The answers to the On Your Own Questions are in the textbook, while the questions to the Study Guide and Chapter Summary are in the General Science Solutions Manual There are no answers to the labs, but these can easily be reviewed and graded by just reviewing the section right after the lab in the textbook. My daughter used the student notebook and liked having one place to keep all the information, with sections for her to write in for the labs and answering the questions.
Can a 4th grader tag along with an older sibling with this student notebook?
A shopper on Jun 13, 2017
BEST ANSWER: A fourth grader could fill out this notebook, but I don't think they'd enjoy it much and may find it difficult . They could definitely listen in while the book was read aloud. I Would have the fourth grader write their own notebook pages- a short summary of what they picked up or a picture instead of the journaling notebook. This book is more advanced than the notebooks that go along with the elementary series. There are no puzzles, or drawing areas or blank pages for written narration. The notebook is the on your own questions, the review questions and a place to record your experiments.
What do the lab reports look like? Do they have sections following the scientific method? The TOC looks like there are more than 100 pages of lab reports.
A shopper on Aug 25, 2016
BEST ANSWER: The lab reports are at least two-pages per experiment on 1 cm grid paper with marks every 2mm. Some experiments have additional charts if the experiment requires them. They do follow the scientific method with the following headings: Objective or Purpose, Hypothesis, Materials, Procedure, Data Table (or whatever type of space they need to record the data for that particular experiment), Results, and Discussion.
Can this notebooking journal be used with the 1st edition textbook?
A shopper on Jul 6, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Yes, there's only a couple questions in a few of the chapter study guides that are different. And a couple of the labs (in the entire book) were switched.
