Complimenting Exploring Creation with Zoology 1, the Zoology 1 Notebooking Journal will provide everything your students need to complete their studies of insects, pterosaurs, bats and birds using Exploring Creation with Zoology 1. The Notebooking Journal serves as your child's individual notebook, providing a place for them to complete every assignment in the book. It includes a weekly schedule, templates for the notebook activities, nature hunts and record keeping, projects, experiments and much, much more.



Included in the Zoology 1 Notebooking Journal is:

  • A daily Schedule for completing the readings, notebook assignments, activities and experiments utilizing a two-day per week plan. Included also is an alternative schedule for cold climates.
  • Fascinating Facts Templates for your student to record what they learned with both words and illustrations for each lesson.
  • Templates for completing the Notebooking Activities.
  • Review Questions for each lesson, which can be answered orally or in writing as a written narration.
  • Scripture Copywork, with both print and cursive practice - which is a valuable method for memorizing Scripture, teaching spelling, grammar and writing, as well as handwriting practice.
  • Project Pages and Scientific Speculation Sheets for the student to keep a record of and log experiments or projects completed throughout the course.
  • Fly Higher ideas for each lesson which compiles additional activities, projects, experiments, books or videos that correlate with the lesson.
  • Beautiful, full-color, lapbook-style Miniature Books, which the students may wish to create, encouraging them to record facts and information they learned in each lesson. These are then placed on the Miniature Book Paste Page, to display in their notebook.
  • Field Trip Sheets to keep a record field trips they enjoyed during their studies.
  • A Final Review with fifty questions the students can answer either orally or in writing to show off all they remember and know about insects, bats, pterosaurs and birds at the end of the course.


  • These Notebooking Journals are a perfect compliment to the Exploring Creation series. Each student will cherish their individual notebook as they make it their very own with words and illustrations reflecting all they have learned in their pursuit of science. Additionally, it serves as your record of your student's scientific endeavors throughout the year. When your child flips through their notebook, they will be reminded of the knowledge they have attained, reviewing the material as they peruse the pages they have created.

    A variety of activities include full-color mini-books, additional fun experiments, crosswords, and supplementary materials. Recommended for use with students who have mastered handwriting, can take notes, and enjoy upper elementary level activities.

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.




Category Description for Apologia Science (K-6):

Author Jeannie Fulbright was a home school mom looking for a quality elementary science series that was creation-based using the Charlotte Mason approach. When she didn't find the type of curriculum she was looking for she decided to create her own. These books use the classical and Charlotte Mason methodology including narration and notebooking to develop critical thinking, logical ordering, retention, and record keeping.

These books came to the attention of Apologia and Dr. Jay Wile, who came to an agreement with the author to take over editing and publishing them. Apologia says, "Well, it has finally happened! After years of searching for an elementary science curriculum that is truly God honoring, user friendly, and scientifically sound, we were introduced to two books by Jeannie Fulbright. It's no wonder that we want to publish her books. As one of the parents who has already used Mrs. Fulbright's astronomy book says, 'It reminds me of Dr. Jay Wile's Apologia Science only yours is on an elementary level while his is written for high school age.' We couldn't have said it better ourselves."

Since the Charlotte Mason method is employed, every lesson is organized with a narrative, notebook work, an activity, and a project. The student notebook is emphasized in the lessons. Activities and projects bring the lessons to life and use simple household items. While the author's intent is for the parent to read these books to elementary students, a student with a 4th-grade reading level could read these books on their own. The books come from a strong creationist viewpoint, including sections called "Creation Confirmation" and Scripture interwoven throughout the book. Apologia recommends spending an entire year covering each book, taking about two weeks to explore most lessons (some lessons may require more time).

As they complete her courses, Ms. Fulbright encourages students to compile a notebook to collect and display the information they are learning. She has now gone one step further by providing a format specifically adapted to each course. The Apologia Notebooking Journals provide a place for the student to complete every assignment, to record experiments and to display work. Included are weekly lesson plans, templates for recording fascinating facts and assignments, and scripture copywork in both print and cursive models. In addition to full-color Miniature Books (for recording facts and information and pasting directly into the notebook), there are optional ideas (Take it Further in Astronomy; Dig in Deeper in Botany; Fly Higher in Zoology, etc.) for lots of additional activities, projects, experiments, books or videos, all of which correlate with specific lessons in each course. Along these lines, the Personal Person project in both of the Anatomy notebooks is special providing clear vinyl overlays of each body system. Be prepared to cut these out, though.

< In some courses (and eventually in all) the youngsters in your homeschool have a Junior Notebooking Journal prepared just for them with less handwriting but the same reinforcing activities. These books include coloring pages, project pages, and cut and fold miniature books (same ones as in the version for older students). There is space for notebooking assignments (more drawings, no questions to answer) and scripture copywork (shorter verses to copy either in manuscript or in beginning cursive). Biblical quotations are from the NASB, KJV, NIV or NKJV.

To complete the books all you will need to provide is scissors, glue, colored pencils, a stapler, and a few brass fasteners. The author does caution, however, that everything in the journal is "optional" and work can be tailored to each student by simply tearing out unwanted pages from the spiral-bound book. Serving both as a uniquely expressed record of the student's work and as a prized reminder of acquired knowledge, these books will become a homeschooling heirloom.

We also now offer lab kits from Nature's Workshop for most of the elementary courses. Kits contain most of the materials for the experiments, and are conveniently packaged by lesson in the corresponding book (sold separately). There are still a few items you will need from around your house, but with these kits the list becomes extremely short. ~ Janice / Jerry


From Apologia:Our Young Explorers Series combines our conversationally-written instruction, hands on activities, and interactive notebooking with an inquisitiveness into God's Creation to turn your young learner into a young explorer. From the tiniest microbe to greatest galaxy, all of creation declares His glory (Psalm 19:1), and if we study Gods creation with intent to glorify Him, then we will soon learn to be in awe of Him and the works of His hand. This awe is more easily instilled during the elementary years when a good old-fashioned bug hunt, leaf collection, or field trip to your local zoo can reveal all sorts of wonders.

Category Description for Exploring Creation with Zoology 1:

Birds, bugs, and bats if it flies, it's explored in this fascinating introduction to zoology! The first portion of the book focuses on birds and their unique characteristics. Kids will learn bird anatomy, how they are able to fly, why they build nests, how they raise their young, and more. They'll also learn to identify the birds they see every day and do activities that explore the habits and preferences of different species of birds. Students will learn about bats, some of the most useful and wonderful flying creatures in the world. As they study the physical characteristics and lifestyle of the bat, they'll gain a new appreciation for these creatures. Finally, kids will get up close and personal to the insect world. They'll learn how to identify and classify the many different types of bugs they see, and they'll even get to design their own experiments with different insect species. Kids will get the opportunity to keep their own field journals as they are encouraged to be their own scientist as they observe and understand the world around them.

We use this for our homeschool curriculum (3rd and 5th grade). I like how it focuses on one topic at a time rather than skipping around from topic to topic. We read it as a family and the workbooks make it easy to remember what we've learned.

We used the Astronomy notebooking journals and my daughters (ages 7 and 10) LOVED them. They were so motivated to work on these that they were finishing their notebooks after I told them we were done with school for the year! They were very proud to show them to Dad, grandparents, etc. This was so much more fun and educational than trying to create our own notebooks from scratch. Both kids are looking forward to science now.

Are these books reproducible? Or is there a digital version available for printing multiple copies?
User on May 2, 2019
BEST ANSWER: The books are not reproducible and we do not carry a digital version. You might check with the publisher - Apologia.

The Notebooking Journals are a supplement. You do not have to use them in order to complete the course. Your student can keep his own notebook with assignments from the text.
can you use the newer edition of notebooking journal with the older textbook?
User on Aug 29, 2018
BEST ANSWER: All components for this course - text, notebooking journal, and junior notebooking journal - are compatible with each other.
what age for each notebook? I have a 7 and 9 year old. Do I need Junior for the 7 year old and the regular one for the 9 year old?
A shopper on Jul 6, 2018
BEST ANSWER: You will definitely want jr for your 7 year old. The regular has full crossword puzzles for vocab review and more writing space/less drawing space. Also the jr has coloring pages to go with a verse for each lesson, the regular does not have them. Hopefully this helps you decide which will suit your 9yr old better!

Not needed, but a GREAT help!
We usually got tired of doing science class and quit before we finished the text. This notebook keeps all your experiments, journaling, drawings, etc. organized as you study. The art projects make it fun to review the science facts. So after we bought the student notebook we finished a whole year of science. This notebook has thin lines for older elementary students that write faster. If your child doesn't write quickly, you should buy the Jr. Notebook.

Perfect for us
The apologia notebooks are perfect for my girls, ages 6,8 &10. I have seen where other parents have assembled their own spiral-bound notebooks, but Apologia has done all the work of putting together a fun, multi-sensory way for the kids to retain what they've learned. I highly recommend both forms of the notebooks.

Easy to teach, great detail for age
I have used several different curricula while home schooling 3 different grade levels (now at K, 3, 5). We do science and history together. This seems to keep everyone's attention and is easily adjusted to fit everyone's needs. I love the notebooks, although my kindergartener skips has to skip a lot.
