    Apologia now offers video instruction DVDs for all upper-level courses. Rusty Hughes is your host as you work through the course. Hughes and his wife have homeschooled since 1997 and he is a tutor for homeschool students in the sciences. This man knows his science and is here to help your student. 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 Mr. Hughes as he explains that particular concept. At the appropriate time, Mr. Hughes will perform the experiments for each chapter, explain the procedure, work through the experiment, and offer a visual of the expected outcome so that students know how to do the experiment themselves. He also makes it very clear that the demonstrations are not to replace actually doing the experiments. 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 new edition of Exploring Creation with Chemistry makes chemistry approachable and doable in a homeschool setting. Now authored by Kristy Plourde, you will notice a few changes from previous editions.

    The chapter order has been changed from the previous editions (1st and 2nd) of the curriculum. There are still 16 modules measurement, units, and the scientific method, atoms and molecules, atomic structure, molecular structure, polyatomic ions and molecular geometry, changes in matter and chemical reactions, describing chemical reactions, stoichiometry, acid-base chemistry, chemistry of solutions, gas phase, energy/heat and temperature, thermodynamics, kinetics, chemical equilibrium, and reduction-oxidation reactions. The front of the book offers a suggestion on how to use the book and the length of time typically spent to complete the course. "On Your Own" questions are found throughout the modules and are to be completed as the student reads the text answers are included at the end of the module. "Review Question" and "Practice Problems" are found at the end of each module to help students recall and apply important concepts presented in that module. The text is generous with examples, illustrations, and photos for clarity of concepts.

    Some helpful resources are found at the back of the text glossary, tables/laws/equations, extra practice problems for each module, and a complete list of lab supplies.

    Experiments are homeschool-friendly and can be completed using the lab kit (#008778) that is assembled by Nature's Workshop and items that are easily accessible. If you want to do more advanced experiments, you can purchase the MicroChem Lab Kit (#020028). These experiments aren't printed in the student text, but are mentioned and marked by a flask and test tube symbol along with where that experiment can be found in the MicroChem Manual. The experiments in this 3rd edition are a combination of some new ones and the tried-and-true from the previous editions. If you don't want or need to purchase the lab kit (#008778), the required items to complete experiments are a 1 mass scale (0 to 500 grams), blue and red litmus paper, 1 thermometer (-10 to 110 degrees C). If you have these three items, the text makes suggestions within the experiments for household substitutions of the other items needed.

    A special website is available to accompany this course, offering web links and additional information for specific concepts. The web address is printed in the front of the text with instructions for access. Textbook is now in the 4th printing. ~ Donna.

    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.

    Learn about Earth Science from a Biblical worldview. Use this 160-page book as a resource or pair it up with your science curriculum to add more dimension to the history and methods of discovery and invention. Dr. Gary Parker will take you from Newton’s discovery of gravity to the formation of the Grand Canyon using as your guide the Bible as the ultimate “history book of the world”.

    Not just an information book, this will challenge you to think about your view of creation through questions called Building Inspection. After reading each chapter (which uses science to support the Scriptures), content is reviewed using these questions to help solidify a Biblical outline of Earth’s history. Earth structure, atmosphere, minerals, rocks, water table, and types of volcanoes are just a few of the topics covered. Full of black and white illustrations and photos on almost every page, this book offers visuals to enhance understanding. Important facts and vocabulary are in bold throughout the reading and answers to the questions are found in the back of the book. ~ Donna

    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.
