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 Apologia Science (K-6):

This popular elementary science series was originally created when Jeannie Fulbright, author and homeschool mom, was looking for a quality elementary science series that was creation-based using the Charlotte Mason approach. When she didn't find the 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. The series has since expanded to cover more science topics. New for 2021 is Earth Science, authored by Rachel Yunis, author of Exploring Creation with Advanced Biology.

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).

Notebooking Journals were a later - and welcome - addition to the series. As they complete the courses, students were encouraged to compile a notebook to collect and display the information they are learning. The Apologia Notebooking Journals now 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.

Junior Notebooking Journals are a simplified version of the orignal Notebooking Journals and require less handwriting but have 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. There are plenty of activity options in the journals, but keep in mind that based on your student, you may not want to complete every activity. 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.

For convenience, we now offer either Advantage Sets or SuperSets. Advantage Sets include the textbook and either the Junior or original Notebooking Journal. SuperSets include the text, the MP3 Audiobook CD and either the Junior or the original Notebooking Journal.

We also offer lab kits from Nature's Workshop for 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


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.

Great help to getting experiments and projects done. I would rarely do them if we had to hunt for and/or go shopping for something every time one comes up in the book. With these kits most things are right there ready to go.

Angela V on Mar 2, 2018
Because I tend to not do the science experiments unless I have all the supplies on hand. :)
Jeniffer D on Feb 28, 2018
I wanted to purchase this complete lab kit to make it easy and convenient to do all of the experiments from the Anatomy textbook with my child. The supplies are labeled by lesson number to correspond to the text, and I know I wouldn't do the experiments otherwise. Everyone else wanted to charge outrageous shipping for this kit, but Rainbow Resource offers free shipping over $50, so it was a no-brainer to order it from here!

Does this kit come with instructions or are the directions only in Exploring Creations text book?
Casey B on Jul 25, 2021
BEST ANSWER: The instructions come only in the Apologia elementary A & P text (Exploring Creation with Anatomy and Physiology). There are no instructions in this kit.
Is the clay that's included polymer clay, intended for baking?
A shopper on Feb 13, 2019
BEST ANSWER: No, it is a non-hardening modeling clay.
Does this kit include the Snellen eye chart?
User on Aug 9, 2017
BEST ANSWER: No, it doesn't.
Are there enough items in this kit to teach two-three students at the same time?
A shopper on Aug 15, 2016
BEST ANSWER: I have used it with four or five at a time. We just do the projects together. The main thing in this kit is when you do the edible cell project you might want to get a little more candy so they can each make their own. Occasionally you might want to add something so all the kids can do their own, but most times it works very well to just let them all do one together.
It has been very helpful in helping us actually do the projects which never seemed to happen before I started buying these kits. Now I get them every year.

Worth every penny!!
I was a little hesitant to spend so much money on the lab kit but it has been worth every penny. My kids love science experiments. Having everything bagged up and ready to go for each chapter has made it so easy. There are still a few things here and there that you may need to supply (like an apple) but those things are minimal. Without this kit, we would have done only a fraction of the experiments. Let's be honest, those hands on projects are what kids remember the most, far more than any textbook!

Everything you need
I love these lab kits. Everything is sorted into bags with the lesson number on it, and there is a sheet of paper that lists, for each lesson, what is included and what you need to provide. It makes it very easy to be prepared.

Great kit!??
With all the prep that goes into homeschooling, this kit really helps out with being prepared to do the experiments! I highly recommend if you are doing this science curriculum to buy this kit. I hate adding one more thing to my list to plan and this makes it easy to not worry about needing so many supplies.

Convenient and motivational!
This kit was a bit pricey, but after just one lesson, it has already been so worth it. First of all, my daughter is excited to get out the package for that lesson--motivation for her. I love that I do not have to run all over the house collecting things, and looking ahead to order things before a lesson. The last few years, science was my least favorite subject and the hands-on portion often got neglected. Not only is this an interesting and well planned curriculum, but with this kit, it is an "open and go" curriculum. Perfect for us!.

Convenient!
This kit makes it so easy to do experiments! Because our time is not spent procuring all the supplies, we have more to actually do the experiments. My only concern so far is that the clay for lesson 2 was hard as a rock when we got it.

A great kit that makes the hands-on part easy
This is packaged so well! Each lesson's activities are individually packed in a ziplock and labeled. The label includes not only the lesson but also what is inside the bag and what else you need from home. It makes the hands-on part of the Apologia books so easy! I wish I had done this for other Apologia books we have used in the past.

Convenient and nicely packaged by lesson numbers
Write your review here. It must be at least 10 characters long. Consider whether you would recommend this product and what you like or dislike about it.We really love the convenience of having everything we need in this kit, because it ensures that we can do every "try this" and every project from the Apologia textbook. My only disappointment is that in lesson 1, we went to make the edible cell model, and the packet of gelatin was expired by several months. Since it was an edible project, I had to replace that on my own. I'm glad I noticed. For $80+, I do expect unexpired contents.

Nice help, but cheap
Overall it is definitely nice to have most of the requirements for the experiments ready for you. It has allowed us to do experiments we wouldn't have otherwise been able to. My issue with the items provided is sometimes not enough is provided and what is can be cheap quality. In one experiment we needed clay to form into a ball and maneuver through a stocking. The clay provided was not enough and just fell through the stocking. In another experiment, we needed a stopwatch to time an action over a 2 week period. The one provided came with no instructions and doesn't work half the time. At night, the alarm on the stopwatch goes off and we can't figure out how to turn it off. I don't expect top notch items in the kit, but if I am paying $80, I would hope to get the correct amount of the things needed and working ones as well.
