    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 might just be the most awesome volcano kit we carry! This kit includes a volcano mold, plaster, eruption powder, paint, paintbrush, booklets, and real specimens (geode, obsidian and pumice). Be creative and paint your volcano to make it personally yours, then make it erupt over and over with the erupting powder. The geode, obsidian and pumice are included so you can see and feel the different types of igneous rocks. You even get the bonus activity of breaking the geode to see what types of crystals are inside the rock. The Activity booklet includes ten fun puzzles - word search, dot-to-dot, word jumble, crossword, a very challenging volcano maze, and five more types of puzzles. The Adventure Guide includes information about volcanoes, structure of the earth, plate tectonics, etc. accompanied by colored photographs.

    This Discover with Dr. Cool Kit is just that – COOL! Great fun to paint, erupt, and learn about volcanoes and rocks. ~ Donna

    As the author says in the preface to this book, a lot of earth science scientists focus primarily on one of the four branches of earth science and are not too concerned about the other three. A new thrust into the earth science field is earth systems science, and that's what this book is teaching. Earth systems science seeks to understand the changes of our planet and the potential consequences of the changes for life here on earth. It does this by looking at the planet as a whole, linking all four branches of earth science. Chapter one introduces readers to earth systems science, explaining the need to study the four branches together. The next three chapters look at the first of these - astronomy - at three levels: a study of the universe, our solar system, and the earth-moon system. Geology is studied in the next five chapters, covering minerals and rocks, geologic time and dating rocks, plate tectonics, volcanoes, and the earth's surface. Chapters 10-12 are the study of oceanography and water on earth - water everywhere, the world's oceans, and the dynamic oceans. The fourth branch is the one most people talk about: atmospheric science - the study of our atmosphere, weather, and climate. It covers earth's atmosphere, climate and climatic zones; atmospheric moisture, pressure, and winds; and weather and weather systems. The text is very complete, but it is not written with a Christian viewpoint - the "facts" given for how things formed or how old things are come from an evolutionary viewpoint. Black and white diagrams, illustrations, maps, and photos are used regularly throughout. Each chapter ends with a review test, and the book ends with a practice exam. Answers included. 377 pgs. ~ Zach

    This book is composed of over 100 reproducible worksheets that cover various aspects of earth science. The exercises encourage students to identify different things using words from the provided word bank. Students do everything from labeling hemispheres and landforms to filling out charts describing clouds and weather patterns to identifying scientific equipment and units of measure. A few crossword puzzles and dot-to-dot activities are also included, but most of the worksheets just prompt students to use words to answer questions. The worksheets can be used as a general review or teachers can select exercises throughout the book to correlate with their studies. Almost every area of earth science that is covered at these grades is included somewhere in the worksheets, including weather, rocks and minerals, seasons, planets, volcanoes, and oceans. An answer key is included. ~ Rachel S.

    Another addition to the "Painless" series, this book does a great job of explaining the concepts of earth science. Earth science is presented in easy-to-understand terminology that will help students understand. Chapters cover the topics of earth structure, atmosphere, weather and climate, hydrosphere, lithosphere, weathering, erosion and deposition, earthquakes and volcanoes, plate tectonics, earth's history, and earth in space.

    Every chapter includes textual information that has been written to the student, diagrams, illustrations, 'brain ticklers' which review material from the previous section, boxes with vocabulary and important facts, and a summary of the chapter in bulleted format. You even have the option of downloading a free app for iPhone, iPod Touch, iPad, and Android, which includes quizzes and games. The quizzes test over material taken directly from the book, but the games are simply for fun – not content related.

    Use this 300+ page book as a self-study course in the middle school grades, or as a course summary, review, or introduction for Earth Science. You could also use this as a supplement to your existing curriculum, to add simpler explanations and fun review. ~ Donna

    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
