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.

Having the text read to my son helps him tremendously with reading comprehension

I have an auditory learner so we will be using this as well as the text book that we already have.

this is the next book in the series we are doing

I value the audio CD's, as it allows me to focus on other priorities during our homeschool day. They listen to the same great curriculum while being introduced to some independent study skills.
MJ H on Sep 20, 2017
Multiple children using this curriculum. Easier to listen as a group!

Audiobooks make the lessons more interesting
Shamichae W on Jul 7, 2017
I usually read the chapters to my daughter. I bought the MP3 so she could review the chapters on her own with the audio to help her.
Michelle W on Jun 30, 2017
My child needs the audio input alongside the text for reinforcement.
Keisha K on Jun 12, 2017
we love these books on audio!
Greta H on Feb 17, 2017
Interesting and engaging. Scientifically accurate.
Bethany S on Dec 21, 2016
Because my son has dyslexia and needs to be able to listen to much of his schooling (history in this case) instead of trying to read it himself. I also have 6 other children, so my time is limited and I do not currently have time to read outloud to him.
Elaine S on Nov 7, 2016
It allows me to homeschool on the go
Betheney B on Sep 12, 2016
Love having the author read to my kids to give me a break from reading.
Angie J on Aug 16, 2016
I really like using the MP3 CDs. It frees up some of my time and my kids like it.
Melinda B on Aug 9, 2016
I look forward to listening to the book in the car with my kids. I hope that listening to it will help to reinforce what I taught them in the lesson. I may even buy the audio for the books that I've taught in previous years to keep us from forgetting what we've learned
Linda M on Aug 4, 2016
So my daughter can listen to the audio all she wants
Anthony O on Jul 28, 2016
In order to curtail my reading aloud time to be free to help my other students.
Jason G on Jun 1, 2016
Don't want to stumble over some of the scientific words. Plus, the kids can be read to while I clean up from lunch, I am nursing baby, or we are riding in the car. Anything to make homeschool life run more smoothly!
Rebecca V on Apr 6, 2016
We found the Audio for Zoology 1 to be very helpful for review, especially while driving in the car. Do not introduce new bits (without the text), as I found that if we tried to move on without the text, they didn't remember as much. When we read the text, I always review the day before's reading, and sometimes the Lesson-to-date (works far better). I don't love all of her pronunciations of the scientific terms, but listen with the children and correct anything to what I learned in science.
Stephanie B on Feb 29, 2016
Love audiobooks and almost done with Zoology 1 and have already done 2.

does this play on a computer?
User on Jul 24, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Yes, the mp3 files on the cd will play on a computer and you can listen from the computer. You can then put them on an ipod or cell phone or other device or you can burn them to an audio cd if you must play them on a cd player that does not read mp3s. Enjoy! We love them!
