    This book covers the nature of astronomy, the structures of the solar system (from the Sun to Pluto, including the moon and asteroids), stars, galaxies, and space travel. Some of the fun notebook assignments include making a mnemonic phrase, a comic strip, an advertisement, and writing a play. With interesting activities and projects including making a telescope, solar eclipse, craters, moon phases, and an astrometer, children are sure to remember the information they are learning.

    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 the Astronomy course. This Notebooking Journal provides a place for the student to complete every assignment, to record his experiments and to display his work. Included in these non-reproducible journals are weekly lesson plans, templates for recording fascinating facts and assignments, and scripture copywork with both print and cursive practice. In addition to full-color Miniature Books options (for recording facts and information and pasting directly into the notebook), there are Take it Further ideas for lots of additional activities, projects, experiments, books or videos, all of which correlate with the lessons. Serving both as a record of the student's work and as a prized reminder of acquired knowledge, these books will become a homeschooling heirloom. ~ Janice

    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.

Apologia has now published its own science supply kit to accompany this course, and includes the materials needed for all experiments and bonus activities (minus the food items). Note: The lab kit available from Nature's Workshop includes most of the materials needed for the regular experiments, but not the bonus activities. Bonus Activities are printed in brown in the notebooking journals; instructions for doing the Bonus Activities are also included in this kit. Some materials are bagged by activity, with other items that are used repeatedly packaged in multi-use bags.

    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.)

    The Heavens truly do declare creation! I am always amazed when I look into the night sky. I wonder how anyone can look at the vastness and not believe in an awesome, powerful God. You can tell by the statement I've made that I have a Christian worldview. Dr. Jason Lisle discusses popular theories and ideas about the universe in light of worldview bias and what the Bible has to say. Big Bang theory, age of the universe, alien life and more are discussed using scripture to analyze. It is refreshing to read a book about astronomy that declares God's glory! Although he presents very detailed information, it is presented in a way that any person with a little knowledge of astronomy can understand. This is an attractive hardcover book with beautiful photographs and illustrations. Information is divided into 5 chapters titled The Splendor of God's creation; The Universe Confirms the Bible, The Age of the Universe, The Bible and Modern Astronomy, and War of the Worldviews. Endnotes give fine details not included in the main part of the text, and a glossary offers definitions of terms that may be new to you. You'll learn about nebula, star clusters, galaxies, planets, comets and much more from a Christian perspective.

    The Bible is the history book of the universe as well as the authoritative word of God. It has proven its accuracy repeatedly, and so it stands to reason that it would be accurate when it comes to the origin and age of the universe and the topic of the heavens. As Christians we need to understand how the Bible supports and explains phenomena we encounter in the realm of nature. This is more than a book about astronomy; it's about your worldview. ~ Donna
