Revised in 2019, this course has a fresh new look and feel. With a goal to create an easier transition from the Apologia Young Explorer’s series for elementary students to the upper level Apologia courses, this course focuses on teaching students to learn independently. The content has also been modified, with fewer modules (14) and a 4 day per week schedule. Topically, the new edition covers the history of science, the scientific inquiry and method, documenting and interpreting experimental results, scientific analysis and history, and science and creation. The three branches of Science: Physical, Earth and Life are covered thoughtfully except for anatomy and physiology which has been removed to prevent overlap of content from the Young Explorer’s Anatomy and Physiology course. Within these branches, students will study astronomy, geology, paleontology, meteorology, oceanography, marine science, life science, environmental science and a basic overview of chemistry, physics and biology. A biblical worldview is evident through scripture references (NIV/NLT), creation connections, and through the experiences of various scientists from history and the present, who believe science is the best avenue to learn more about the God who created it.

There are 3 core components: The softcover Textbook, the spiral bound Student Notebook and the paperback Solutions and Tests. The Textbook is divided into 14 modules and contains all the student readings, On Your Own Questions (and answers) and the hands-on experiments/activities. Written conversationally, the author strives to engage students through text, graphics and activities. The course contains a total of 76 hands on experiments or activities. While students should complete all the activities, only one formal lab report is required per module. It is expected to take one hour per day to complete each science lesson. Additional student resources are available through the link and password provided in the textbook. The appendix includes a list of lab supplies for each module. Each module will take 2- 2 ½ weeks to complete. Lab supplies are easily found items, although we offer a Lab Kit from Nature’s Workshop Plus for your convenience.

The Student Notebook contains the suggested daily schedule, grading rubrics, space to record answers to the on your own questions and the study guide questions, write the definitions to vocabulary words, document lab experiments, note-taking prompts and graphic organizers, and occasional fill in the blank summaries. At the end of each module is a Creation Connection response page for writing out personal thoughts or questions related to the module.

The Student Notebook is considered a required component. However, with the exception of the daily schedule, occasional summaries and the note taking prompts, instructions for the notebooking exercises are provided in the textbook. Advanced students may choose to create their own science notebook following the instructions in the text.

The Solutions booklet with Test Pages contains the module exams, and the solutions to the study guide questions and exams. Tests are not reproducible. Also available is a packet of Tests Pages for additional students.

The Exploring Creation with General Science 3rd edition Set includes the Textbook, Student Notebook, and Solutions Booklet with Test Pages.

The Exploring Creation with General Science MP3 Audio CD contains an audio reading of the textbook and on your own questions. It does not include an audio reading for the study guides, tests, and answers. Please note, this is an MP3 audio. To play this CD, you will need a MP3-compatible CD player or on a computer. It will not play in a standard audio cd player.

The Exploring Creation with General Science Video Instruction Thumb Drive provides additional instructions for each of module in the textbook modules through lectures, visual animations, on-location video clips. Sherri Seligson engages students through her lively teaching and 3-D animations. Additionally, videos of all the experiments are included for reference and include detailed explanations. It is recommended students complete the lab activities at home. The Thumb Drive is a supplemental teaching support and the Textbook, Student Notebook and Solutions and Test Book are required.

The Exploring Creation with General Science Deluxe Set includes the Textbook, Student Notebook, Solutions Book with Test Pages, the MP3 Audio CD and the Video Instruction Thumb

Category Description for Exploring Creation with General Science:

The General Science course, designed for 7th grade, transitioned to the 3rd edition in 2019. The 2nd edition is now out of print and we are out of stock on most of the course components.




Category Description for Apologia Junior / Senior High Science:

Written specifically for use in a homeschool environment, these biblically-centered courses take a lot of pressure off the parent teaching the course. The main component of each course is the textbook. Please note that most textbooks have switched from hardcover to softcover format. The student text includes all the student reading, instructions for labs, "On Your Own" exercises, and fifteen to twenty "Study Guide" questions at the end of each chapter. Unlike many upper-level science texts, we have found these to be extremely readable! The text has a conversational tone, and concepts are explained in an easy-to-understand way. Plenty of helpful diagrams and pictures are included which add interest and break up the text. Answers to the "On Your Own" exercises are also included with discussion at the end of each chapter. The labs are designed to be done easily, and most require only household items to complete; unlike high school courses, like Bob Jones which require investing in some lab equipment and chemicals to complete the labs. Where a microscope or dissecting materials are required, a reasonably-priced complete kit of materials is available, for ease in collecting the items.

The Solution Manual contains test questions for each chapter, answers to the test questions and solutions to the "Study Guide" questions. For some courses, a separate Perforated Tests booklet is available; please note that this is only necessary if you want an extra copy of the test questions.

TheStudent Notebooks are a user-friendly companion that provides space for answering the On Your Own and Study Guide questions as well as for developing Lab Reports. Study helps include graphic organizers and a Module Summary for each module (fill-in-the-blank). Digging Deeper sections provide opportunity for practical applications and writing activities. For the teacher there are grading rubrics for lab reports and suggested answers for some of the graphic organizers. The History of Science module includes a nicely done timeline. Grading rubrics for the lab reports are provided in the Appendix.

MP3 Audio CDs are also available for most courses. The audio files are in MP3 format, and will require an MP3-compatible CD player to use (these can also be run on most computers). Tests, study guides, and answers are not included - this is simply an audio version of the text.

Apologia also offers Video Instruction for Biology, Chemistry, Marine Biology and Advanced Biology. These have transitioned to USB flash drive format. Sherri Seligson, author and scientist, is your host and takes you to interesting locations, incorporating animated diagrams (over 20 hours of instruction) to help students better understand the concepts being taught. The content is more of a summary of the textual information found in each section of the modules than a narration of the text. Students will either see Sherri Seligson on location or in a lab during the speaking portions or they will see animated illustrations and examples. Sherri takes students through each lab and talks about what needs to be done and the results of the experiments.

System requirements for USB drives: USB port (PC or Mac), media player capable of playing mp4 files, and an internet browser. DVD requirements: DVD drive on your computer (PC or MAC) capable of playing mp4 files; these are not compatible with a DVD player.

We now offer SuperSets and Advantage Sets which include multiple items. Advantage Sets include the text, solutions manual (with a copy of the test), notebooking journal, and the MP3 Audiobook CD. SuperSets include everything in the Advantage Set (text, solutions manual with tests, otebooking journal and MP3 CD) plus the Video Instruction USB Flash Drive.



Category Description for Apologia Science:

Apologia Science courses are written from a Biblical worldview with the homeschool in mind. At the elementary level, courses follow a Charlotte Mason-inspired methodology, with lessons organized around narration, notebooking exercises and hands-on activities or projects. Children at different ages can use these together, learning at their own level. Each course is designed to be teacher-student interactive, so teacher involvement is fairly high at this level. At the junior high and high school levels, science courses are more traditional in nature, with the textbook written to the student. Teacher involvement time at this level is much less than at the elementary level. Textbooks contain student reading, lab instructions, "On Your Own" questions and Study Guide questions. A Solutions Manual provides the answers to these and the test questions. Lab kits are available separately for both the elementary and upper-level science courses which include most of the harder to find items you will need.

I've done TONS (20+ hours) of research for my middle schooler's science curriculum this year, looking at every curriculum I could find. I follow a Charlotte Mason-type teaching style and this is the curriculum that checked off the most boxes by far according to what I was looking for.

I had another student use this material and felt it was helpful to make the student interact with the material rather than just read it. Also helpful for those students who either love to check off lists OR need a list to help them stay on track.

looking for a good bridge science--- I like the emphasis on learning notetaking skills
Ann S on May 21, 2020
Because it's an organized, visual way for my middle-schooler to record what he's learning in his General Science text vs. dry note-taking. If I'd had tools like this when I was his age, I believe I'd have been a lot more engaged in learning.

We don't always fill out all the notebook, but it helps us stay on track and works like a ready-made lesson plan, especially for self-study students.

Susana D on Sep 13, 2019
The student workbook saves so much time and materials. Going through the program without the notebook is not nearly as fun, efficient, or organized. Adding the workbooks along with the student texts has made this program much more enjoyable.

Can the 3rd edition notebook be used with the 2nd edition text?
A shopper on Jul 13, 2019
BEST ANSWER: No, the 3rd edition notebook is not compatible with the 2nd edition text or any 2nd edition components. However, we still have a good quantity of the 2nd edition notebooks available.

Very good notebook. Could be better with labs in each unit vs at the end
This notebook is excellent but I have no idea why the labs and forms labs are not In with each unit!! It is maddening having to flip back and forth to the lab and forms lab write ups!! Keep everything together. The formal labs can be placed at the end of each unit.

My daughter loved this science set. She still calls the author by name like she is a trusted family friend and is always spilling over with what she learned. This was our favorite pick last year.
