    Looking for a solidly Christian and academically complete health and nutrition course for your high schooler? You may have just found it! Although this course was not available for an independent review prior to our catalog printing, it appears this course will meet the academic and value needs of homeschool families. Beginning with an overview of anatomy and physiology, this courses scope includes senses, genetics, macro and micro nutrients, exercise and diet. Emotional issues and mental illness, human value, culture, gender roles, families, socialization, communication skills and conflict resolution skills are also covered. Reproductive anatomy and physiology are covered including accurate illustrations and descriptions. Marriage, sexuality, pregnancy and sexually transmitted diseases are discerningly explained, along with alcohol and drug abuse, depression, pornography and other topics necessary for our young people to understand for successful navigation in adulthood. This is handled gently, and respectfully, but parents should evaluate their young adults emotional and spiritual maturity prior to lessons. Over 50 projects are included in the text/student notebook which will not require a lab kit. The publisher states this will not meet a high school science lab credit.

    Unlike other Apologia courses, the Student Notebook is required for this course. Solutions are available online with course purchase. Apologia recommends the course be taken concurrently with their 9th grade Biology. Parents should discern their young person's ability and maturity. This one-year course will meet your transcript needs and prepare your student for college level courses. ~ Deanne

    This book is now in 2nd ed. and chapters include What is Astronomy, The Sun, Mercury, Venus, Earth, The Moon, Mars, Space Rocks, Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, Neptune, Kuiper Belt and the Dwarf Planets, and Stars, Galaxies, and Space Travel. The last few chapters are where you see a change in the chapter sequence from the first edition – chapters 11 and through 14. There are still interesting activities and projects including a model solar system made of balloons, pinhole eclipse viewing box, making a compass, understanding the moon phases, and creating an astrometer. Children are sure to remember the information they are learning between hearing the text, performing the hands-on activities, and completing the journal pages.

    The text is formatted differently from first edition – it begins with an explanation of the text, activities, course website, notebooking journals, and science kit in clear bold print. Each lesson is full of new photography and illustrations and interspersed with scripture. Blue “Think about this” and “Wisdom from Above” boxes give special attention to the Creator, and orange questions are scattered throughout the lessons for students to think about and explain. Activities for each lesson include instructions and illustrations for completion. Every chapter is rounded out with “What do you Remember?” where students recall information from the lesson. The appendices include a lesson-by-lesson supply list for hands-on activities and an answer key for “What do you Remember?” questions.

    Notebooking journals are now in full color and color-coordinated. A suggested schedule is in the front of each notebooking journal, but you decide how many times a week to do your curriculum. The schedule lists daily assignments (71 total), and the lists have items listed in 3 different colors – green for textbook reading assignments, blue for notebook assignments, and brown for science kit activities. Pages in the notebooking journal are formatted for students to answer questions and complete activities. A review of the inner planets now follows lesson 8, review of the outer planets follows lesson 12, and a final review follows lesson 14. “Take it Further” pages are now drawing, making lists of books you’ve read, movies you’ve watched, additional experiments you may have completed, and making scrapbooking pages. Copywork is still included and coloring pages in the junior notebooking journals. There are answer keys in the back for vocabulary crossword puzzles and final review questions.

    Because of the content changes, first edition products won’t work with the 2nd edition. Experiments are different (four of them are unchanged), so lab supplies do vary as well.

    Once students have learned all about the creatures of the air and the basics of zoology, they can take a trip into the depths and discover all the strange and unique creatures of the sea, lakes, and rivers. They'll learn about the special features of swimming creatures, the different watery environments they live in, what their lifestyles are like, and the special circumstances they deal with. Then they take a closer look at specific groups of swimming creatures, including whales, seals, sea cows, sea turtles, sea snakes, sea frogs and toads, primeval reptiles (like plesiosaurs), fish, sharks, rays, crustaceans, cephalopods, echinoderms, cnidarians, sponges, leeches, and more. As they study these creatures, they'll create replicas of them to add to an ongoing "Ocean Box," and conduct neat experiments like discovering the insulating power of fat, investigating how electrical current travels through salt water vs. fresh water, and determining how much of a role temperature plays in tadpole development. They'll also add to their notebooks by drawing the animals in them, comparing and contrasting animals, and much more. Whether the ocean is a familiar place to your children or not, they'll be equally fascinated by learning about the unique creatures beneath the water.

    This course is for your visual learners who need high school credit in Chemistry. Wes Olson, the host of Biology 101, will take you on a journey through the history of chemistry along with what the study of chemistry is all about. This course is divided into nineteen 20-45 minute segments and examines the world of chemistry, the periodic table, important characters in the field of chemistry, the essentials of chemistry such as neutrons, isotopes, ions, compounds, molecules, and balancing chemical equations, an explanation of the elements – non-metals, poor metals, transition metals, rare earth & radioactive metals, and the future of chemistry. This is a 4 DVD set that has a running time of 10 hours, 55 minutes along with PDF files for the guidebook, accreditation booklet, and an extended periodic table.

    To get started with this program, you will want to print off the PDF files for the guidebook, periodic table and accreditation schedule, or take them somewhere to have them printed (the guidebook is over 120 pages). Students will be starting a chemistry notebook for this program in which they will write their research and reports. You will want to read ahead in the guidebook so you can gather and prepare needed items for the next lesson, mini-labs, and reports. The guidebook also allows the student to review information covered in the lessons along with quizzes and discussions questions. Mini-labs are demonstrated in the lessons and are performed with items from around your house or are easily accessible. I think the labs are much better and meatier than those found in Biology 101 and would do a much better job of meeting the high school credit. ~ Donna

    Apologia now offers video instruction DVDs for all upper-level courses. Author Sherri Seligson is your host for Biology as you work through the course. The lecture instruction closely follows the text, with lectures broken down by text section. Presented in a slideshow fashion, students will see information or illustrations and hear the author as she explains that particular concept. DVD also features some exciting footage from all over the world, with examples of the organisms being studied. Video presentations of every experiment from the textbook are also included. Although the video demonstrations do not replace actually doing the experiments, it is a very helpful resource for those who are a little less sure of what they are doing in their home laboratories. Module notes are available in PDF format at the beginning of each module and contain all math problems from the lectures. The student will print them and fill them out as they are discussed in the lecture. A suggestion for planning your lessons for a 10-day period is offered at the beginning of the first module. Please note that no books are included; this is the instructional DVD only.

    This Lab Kit from Nature's Workshop includes most of the supplies needed for the labs in the Exploring Nature with Astronomy 2nd Ed. textbook, organized and bagged by lab activity number. A cross-reference sheet is included so the kit can be used with either the 1st or 2nd edition Astronomy course. Please note that this kit will not include supplies for the optional "Apologia Science Kit Activities" which are printed in brown in the daily schedule found in the notebooking journals. Apologia has made an exclusive kit available which contains supplies for the optional and textbook activities. One other notable difference between the Nature's Workshop kit and the Apologia kit is that the Nature's Workshop kit includes materials bagged by lesson where the materials in Apologia's kit are bagged by activity. There are also some variations in the types of supplies provided, most notably in that there are no food items included in the Apologia kit, while most of these are included (pre-measured) in the Nature's Workshop kit (flour, salt, oil, chocolate bar, etc.)
