    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

    Exactly what was needed in the Apologia elementary science scope and sequence – the Human Body. We waited awhile for this, but it was worth the wait (as we knew it would be). Continuing their pattern of in-depth studies, exciting information, engaging activities, and biblical worldview, this latest course examines the body systems – skeletal, muscular, respiratory, digestive, cardiovascular, nervous – along with nutrition, health, embryology, the immune system, and the major organs. It also provides a brief history of medicine and an introduction to cell structure and DNA. Activities within the fourteen lessons include finding blood type, making a cell model, and building a skeleton. Oh! And be prepared! Your student will be looking for household bacteria. ~ Janice

    If you already have the dissection tools you need, this set just includes the individual specimens: an earthworm, a frog, a perch, and a crayfish. Specimens are nice and large, and are preserved with NASCO-Guard®. Please note that all specimens are enclosed in a plastic bag within a zip-close bag, and will ship with a separate packet of care and safety instructions. All specimens are packaged in one bag, so when bag is opened, you will need to reseal it in the reclosable bag to keep the other specimens from gradually drying out. Brief or minimal exposure to air will not harm the specimens. Refrigeration is not required.

    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 excellent (but optional) companion to the Apologia Biology course provides a place to keep everything together - module notes and lab reports. The introductory information includes a rubric for grading experiments, grade recording charts, parent notes/student notes, and most importantly, a daily schedule (no need for separate lesson plans). The module notes provide a uniform format for completing chapter notes, the On Your Own and Study Guide questions, and an (optional) modular summary. The consistent format is only one of the reasons you might choose this notebook option. Full-color illustrations (ready for labeling) as well as full-color dissection photographs would be other reasons. 604 pgs. spiral-bound

    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.

    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 notebookactivities 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! I think parents will really enjoy learning along with their children about the unique land creatures God created.
