Category Description for Apologia Elementary Science Kits:

Apologia elementary science is a wonderful series, and these lab kits from Nature's Workshop Plus make it easy and convenient to do the hands-on projects found in the books without running all over to find what you need. 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. You can check our website or call customer service for kit contents.




Category Description for Exploring Creation with Zoology 3:

This is it, the eagerly anticipated and finally available third book in the "Exploring Creation with Zoology" series. Now it's time to learn about all the land animals God created on the sixth day. Animals in this category are diverse and include many different types. Like the others in this series, the groups are studied using their scientific names. You'll learn about Carnivores, Caniforms, Feliforms, Marsupials, Primates, Rodentia, Ungulates (hoofed animals), Artiodactyla, reptiles, amphibians, and even dinosaurs. The book is divided into 14 modules, each containing the quality information and illustrations you've come to expect from Apologia. Children will learn about what makes each group very special and different from other groups of animals. At the end of each module, children will engage in a variety of notebook activities and experiments. A "Track It!" activity helps students identify tracks of the animals just covered in that module. The "Map It!" activity encourages students to mark a map with the location of where you might find the animals from that module. How exciting! Parents will really enjoy learning along with their children about the unique land creatures God created.




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.

I live in a remote little town in Alaska and prefer to have this come all at once to give my kids something fun to look forward to.

So I don't have to stress last minute finding items & running to the store.

We live overseas so it's nice to have all the materials ready to use.

The labs are easy to do. The kit is saving me some time especially with several kids doing school at same time.
Rebecca L on Oct 3, 2017
My daughter wants to do Land Animals and unless I have the supplies handy already, the experiments will not get done
Kristin W on Aug 14, 2017
I have order the kits for other years and I love the fact that it is all together.
Melissa B on Mar 6, 2017
I love having everything for the labs right when I need it.
Gena C on Jan 4, 2017
Useful.
Sean H on Nov 26, 2016
It makes science so much easier to have almost everything I need readily available.
Kathryn B on Nov 11, 2016
Homeschooling...I love the ease of using this and not having to run to store or buy each item individually.
Brandon E on Jul 20, 2016
Worth every $ for the time saved in collecting supplies. Prevents skipping experiments due to lack of supplies.
Laurie R on Jul 5, 2016
LOVE these lab kits! When I get them - we do all the experiments!
Teresa F on Jan 20, 2016
I chose this because I have found myself stalling when it came to the science experiments as I always feel rushed to get everything done that needs to be done...so my husband and I decided it was worth the money to stop the stalling. Now we'll be able to just happily delve into the part which is most fun for our daughter :)
Sarah M on Jan 5, 2016
I chose this kit because we previously used the Chemistry & Physics lab kit and found it to be very inclusive. We were able to easily do all the labs in the book and my kids loved it! Made it so much easier for me to not have to gather all of these supplies. Well worth the money.

What items will I need to add to this for the experiments?
A shopper on Jul 6, 2017
BEST ANSWER: We used this kit the past school year and I don't remember needing to add anything. They even had masking tape, scotch tape, permanent markers, scissors, etc. Each lesson's experiment was in its own bag and if you needed to use something for more then one experiment (the timer, thermometer, tape, etc) it would tell you to save it and use with the lesson number it corresponded with. For me this is the only way I can accomplish the experiments.
can this be used with more than one child?
A shopper on May 18, 2016
BEST ANSWER: I have used this with my girls letting them share doing the experiments. The kits are such a blessing because they contain almost all of the items needed with the exception of common things found in the home. I do not think you will be disappointed buying one kit and sharing it between two children. This kit has things to do that can be easily shared between more than one child! Especially the mapping it activity ! And the games and such.

Awesome Kit! Well organized!
I love this kit! Last year for our science curriculum, I didn't do any of the labs offered as I didn't get my act together to get the supplies. It was not a great experience as my kids love experimenting and I knew I was letting them down. This year, I decided to pay for the kits all made up and I can honestly say, I am not disappointed at all! This kit is so organized. Every Lesson is bagged separately and it even tells you what it does not include so you can grab it ahead of time. Pretty much anything that is not included is around your house. The kit literally contains everything else!! It is awesome and my kids LOVE science now:-)

Best Money I Ever Spent
The title says it all. Truly the best money I ever spent in all my 18 years of homeschooling. Everything is included in this kit. All I do is pull out the premade bag for each module and we are ready for the experiment. Easy peasy. I will purchase again.

A busy mom's science helper!
I've been buying these kits for 3 years. Practically everything you need to do each experiment. In my world that's the deciding factor for getting them done or not!
