    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.

       Everything is either living or non-living, and this 8-week study will introduce your student to the systematic way to sort, identify, name and classify all the things on this earth that are alive. Two books are required for use with this study guide: Classifying Living Things and Tree of Life: The Incredible Biodiversity of Life on Earth. Students will go through these books chapter-by-chapter and discover the world of living things. Along with these books students will need a pen or pencil, eraser, and colored pencils. Students do the assigned reading and complete the written exercises. Sections 1-3 teach the general information for classifying and sections 4-8 cover each of the five kingdoms.

      The first week students will use Classifying Living Things and begin Tree of Life in the second week. In week one, students do the reading and answer questions. Week two, students read, answer questions, and do a research project on Carolus Linnaeus and write a paragraph about their findings. Week 3 is reading and questions again. Weeks 4 through 8 follow the same format – read and answer questions, choose a single species from the kingdom being studied and classify it, use colored pencils to draw your chosen subject, and write a paragraph describing your subject. There are blank pages at the back of the guide for writing notes. This study is very easy to use, and students will have a good introductory understanding of taxonomy – the classification of living things.

    Since 1956, children and adults have enjoyed watching ant colony activity with this classic kit. The “farm” is a clear upright rectangular frame thin enough that the activity of the ants is viewable from the outside. Ants form various tunnels through the substrate as they go about their daily routines. Frame is break-resistant and escape-proof. Harvester ants must be ordered directly from the manufacturer (for shipment in continental U.S. only) which includes a shipping fee. 9” x 14.25” x 1.5”.

      The naturalist in me adores this book! Introduce your littlest ones to the 12 most common backyard birds through the beautiful images, background information and clear realistic sounds. Each 2 page spread features one bird. On the left, you will find the common and scientific name, a summary paragraph and specific details including location found, diet, size, description of eggs and more. The opposite side has a beautiful, lifelike image of the bird, and a “Did you know” statement. The book itself is composed of thicker, board book type pages. The sound module is encased in durable plastic and is attached to the book. Each bird’s sound button has a lifelike picture of the bird’s face that matches the image inside the book. A list of the included birds is the House Wren, American Goldfinch, Red-Winged Black Bird, Killdeer, House Finch, Great Horned Owl, Blue Jay, American Robin, Northern Cardinal, Mourning Dove, American Crow and the Song Sparrow. Don’t be surprised if your children are outside playing and come running to share the name of the bird singing from the trees! Book measures approximately 8 3/4 x 8 1/4”. ~ Deanne

    Whether you’re planning a trip to the zoo or would like to complete an animal study within the comfort of your own home, this creation-based resource provides you with lots of information, tips, and activities for a fascinating look at 27 different animals. The book speaks to the user in either situation; however, it certainly leans toward the zoo-goer. The hardcover “field-trip-in-a-book” houses a spiral bound book as well as a “tool kit” – a pouch in the back cover holding additional materials. The book is divided into the following four sections: Before the Zoo, At the Zoo, After the Zoo, and Appendices. In the Before the Zoo section, you’ll become acquainted with the Complete Zoo curriculum, utilize the planning calendar and supplies list if you are taking a trip to the zoo, and enjoy 7 devotionals meant to prepare you for the trip and the amazing creatures God has designed. The At the Zoo section is the heart of the book. Here there are a couple of pages with information about field assignments (assigning children to different roles at the zoo – photographer, trail finder, etc.), field journals, and tips for behavior while at the zoo. Then it’s on to the animals! The 27 animals detailed are organized in 5 tabbed sections - birds, paws and claws, hooves, reptiles, and amphibians. There are 2-3 pages devoted to each of the 27 animals. These pages include lots of interesting text about unique characteristics/design, behavior, and lifestyle as well as photographs, fun facts, and a map showing where in the world the animal lives. The After the Zoo section holds several reproducible follow up activities for younger ages, intermediate students, and advanced students including matching exercises, word searches, coloring pages, and other activities to complete using the materials found in the tool kit. In the Appendices section, you’ll find helpful resources such as scripture verses to memorize, educator notes for parents/teachers, and a glossary. Throughout the entire book you’ll enjoy lots of colorful photographs of a variety of animals.

    The Tool Kit holds 4 different resources. First, there is a field card for each animal covered in the book. These cards hold general statistics for the animals, including how big, how heavy, diet, habitat, life span, special features, and more. Each statistic appears in the same order on all of the cards for easy comparison and information gathering. Next there are 7 biome cards, each with a picture of the biome on the front (along with a map showing where in the world that biome exists) and information on the back. Thirdly, there are 3 field journals included with the book (a reproducible form is included in the book in case you need more than 3). These “journals” are pamphlet-sized and made out of cardstock (an 8.5” by 8.5” sheet folded in half). The journal features 32 boxes to fill out on the trip to the zoo (or on the trip through the book!). The students record the type of animal, write its name in the blank, and draw or describe any special features in the blank space. Lastly, there are 12 name badges, which are glossy cardstock and feature space for the student’s name as well as their field assignment. All in all, this curriculum offers a great way to expand your trip to the zoo and does an excellent job of dispelling evolutionary myths about God’s creation and instead pointing to our wonderful Creator. – Melissa

    This is likely the most inexpensive bird feeder you'll find. The feeder part is a plastic tray that screws onto a 2-liter plastic bottle. Fill the bottle with bird seed, turn it upside down, and hang (hanger included) in a tree, or mount it.

    Bird feeders are a wonderful way to bring avian life to your windowsill. However, hummingbirds seem to be some of the pickier birds when it comes to feeding time. If you want these little busy-bodies to stick around, this hummingbird feeder is a good way to do so. Inside are all the pieces to put together a colorful feeder and a chart showing which hummingbirds are likely to dine in your area. When Spring rolls around, stick the feeder on a window with the attached suction cups, make sure it’s perfectly level, and fill any small, plastic bottle (the traditional “standard size” water bottle works best) with the included nectar recipe of sugar and water. Place the bottle upside down in the feeder, and let the nectar flow up to the three flower-shaped feeding spots. Sit back, relax, and watch the hummingbirds (and butterflies) feast! Simply swap out the sugar-water and rinse out the base every few days to keep the birds coming back for more.

    This fun-filled educational game teaches horse lovers of all ages how to recognize horses by breed, color, and marking. Three different adventures take players through a learning journey of 32 different breeds. The first is called Mustang Adventure, and players are Mustang ranch escapees trying to survive in the wild. Players compete to gather a large herd of mares and foals and keep them safe from danger. In the second adventure, Rancher's Roundup, players are on the other side of the fence as ranchers trying to recapture their horses by brand and be the first to herd them to Green Valley. The third adventure, Rancher's Revenge, is a strategy game as you round up horses by groupings including breed, color, and markings. Game contains rules for all 3 of these variations, 3 solitaire games, 55 horse cards in full color displaying the horse on the front (all have cool names like Bustin' Dust or Thunderbolt) and information about them on the back, 4 playing pieces, adventure cards, game board, die, and a booklet containing rules of play, horse information and a reading list. Whether players are ranchers or wild mustangs, they are sure to have lots of fun and learn a lot on the way! ~ Megan

    This large poster classifies insects into three main categories: Prominent Wings, Wingless, and Modified Wings. The purpose of the chart is to introduce students to the various types of insects, learn the insect orders, and identify the characteristics that determine an insect's classification. For each of the three categories, colorful illustrations of several insects are displayed, listing their order with info that describes them and points out why they are classified the way they are. The bottom of the chart describes basic insect anatomy and defines some terms found on the poster. This provides a great way for students to visualize the organization of insect orders and learn how to classify insects themselves. 24" x 36". ~ Rachel

    Honestly, of all the books about horses that I've ever seen, this is the one that I would consider the horse Bible. This was the first horse book that I ever owned and through it I got one of the most wonderful horses in the world - but more about that later. The lengthy introduction covers horse breeds, types, temperaments, relatives, conformation, life cycle, color patterns, markings, gaits, sporting and working events, saddles, bridles, bits, origins and more. These pages are packed full of information, pictures, illustrations, etc. The meat of the book is devoted to discussing over 100 individual horse breeds, divided into three sections: ponies, light horses, and heavy horses. Most breeds receive a two-page spread and a plethora of information about that breed including environment, origin, temperament, breeding, characteristics, colors, and uses. Pages also include a map section with a highlighted area of the region the horse originated from, a key showing the types of horses which influenced the breed and the traits that they passed to it, and a silhouette illustration of the horse standing next to a 6' tall man for size comparison along with size ranges. Front and center, of course, is a photograph of the horse which takes up the majority of the page with distinctive points of conformation marked out to assist with breed identification. The end pages include a glossary of equine lingo that not all are familiar with and an index so you can flip back to your favorite breed easily until you have the page memorized. This book was also my art inspiration (horses are the only thing I draw at all well), and I often took this book with me as a guide when I was drawing - my goal was to draw all the breeds, but I never got that accomplished! Besides educating me, this book did something else for me - it was in this book I saw my first picture of a Friesian (pg. 116!!) and then and there I decided that I had to have one at some point in my life (not knowing at the time how expensive they are). I had never even touched one before last spring where, because of this book, I decided that I would do my required internship (for the horse program I was in) at a Friesian breeding facility. I had never seen one up close, but they were still on my mind, so I located a farm up in Minnesota. After two weeks there my dreams came true - my bosses gifted me with an almost two-year old Friesian cross (that's right, he's only half Friesian, but he is gorgeous!) which I named Tonto. It was truly one of the most amazing things that ever happened to me and, of course, I owe it to God and this amazing book! ~ Megan
