    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.

    Children are fascinated by animals and capitalizing on their interest and passion will help them to love learning (and who knows, maybe provide a career opportunity for them in the future!). Divided into two parts, this book takes children from understanding Zoology at its most basic definition through the foundational concepts of animal forms and functions, animal behavior and environment. Then, it forays into zoology (in real life) with a survey of career paths and experiences for zoologists. Intermingled within the text are full color illustrations and abundant hands-on activities. A sampling of activities includes playing a dolphin echolocation game, demonstrating a butterfly’s life cycle, communicating like a deep sea animal, molding “tiger teeth”, planning and drawing an animal’s exhibit and following recipes to create an edible animal cell and bat fruit salad. The over 20 activities usually use easy to find items. Includes bolded vocabulary words, a glossary, an index and resources to learn more. A perfect supplement to any science curriculum or unit study/summer study resource. 131 pgs, sc. ~ Deanne

    This fast-paced card game takes only about 15 minutes to play, and familiarizes players with food chains in four different ecosystems: Pacific Ocean, American Prairie, Amazon Rainforest and Sahara Desert. The cards represent plants, omnivores, herbivores and carnivores from each of those biomes, numbered 1-5. Each player can stack cards in order to develop a food chain in any two biomes at a time, but action cards like “Migration,” “Invasion” or “Scavenge” can disrupt play! After players have at least three cards in their biome stacks, they can “bank them” or set them aside for points. Play continues until cards are exhausted, and the winner is the players with the most points. For 2-4 players.

    In this deck-building strategy game, players take on the role of research scientist, collecting and feeding predatory snails and harvesting their venom to build life-saving drugs from the venom’s peptides. The goal combination of peptides is different in each game. Predator cards (lobsters, sting rays and turtles) can be used against other players’ snails and Action cards including “Research” and “Tsunami Wave” disrupt gameplay or give some players special actions, so strategy can change as the game progresses. Players learn about real world marine biology and the ocean ecosystem, as the game was developed in collaboration with the American Museum of Natural History. 2-4 players; 30-45 minutes/game.

    "In the beginning God created…" not your typical opening sentence for an encyclopedic style reference book! Master Books and My Father's World have teamed up to provide homeschool families an alternative to the popular Usborne and DK encyclopedia books. This refreshing book provides fascinating details, beautiful illustrations and full color photographs, all from an evolution-free perspective! The introduction provides an overview of zoology, a synopsis of the flood, and God's design for animal life.

    Seven chapters examine the animal kingdom from single-celled organisms to mammals. Section One looks at single cell life forms, protists, moss animals, sponges, jelly fish, hydroids, sea anemones, coral and coral reefs. Section Two focuses on worms, snails, starfish, mollusks, and echinoderms. In Section Three, readers will explore the world of bugs, including beetles, weevils, butterflies, bees, wasps ants, flies, crickets, grasshoppers, and even fleas and lice! Other animals included are crabs, lobster, shrimp, crustaceans, spiders, scorpions, centipedes and millipedes. Section Four covers fish. Although fish are easy to identify, not all fish must live in the water. In this section, we learn the common characteristics of fish, and the exceptional characteristics of some, which allow them to break the rules. Amphibians and reptiles are featured in Section Five. Readers will "meet" newts, salamanders, frogs and toads as well as a few of my family's favorite animals: tortoises, turtles, terrapins, sea turtles, crocodiles and alligators, iguanas and chameleons, geckos, lizards, skinks, pythons, boas, and thread snakes, grass snakes, water snakes, garter snakes and a variety of venomous snakes. Birds are next. Did you know that penguins successfully navigate life in the sea by using their short stubby wings for swimming? This segment also introduces us to seabirds, shorebirds, herons, ducks, geese, birds of prey, game birds, pigeons, doves and parrots, cuckoos, owls, woodpeckers, crows, shrikes, sparrows, finches and weavers, warblers, thrushes, flycatchers, larks, swallows, treecreepers, plus many others. The seventh section examines mammals including whales, dolphins porpoises, egg-laying mammals, marsupials, bats, anteaters, sloths, armadillos, rabbits, aardvarks, hyraxes, mice, rats, squirrels, deer, camel, antelopes, sheep, horses, zebras, cats, dogs, bears, raccoons, pandas, mongooses, lemurs, monkeys and numerous others.

    This reference book would be a valuable asset to the Christian homeschool family bookshelf. These books will most definitely end up on my family's reference shelf and I am grateful we can offer this quality science reference book without the deluge of evolutionary teaching. ~ Deanne

    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.

    Birds, bugs, and bats – if it flies, it's explored in this fascinating introduction to zoology! The first portion of the book focuses on birds and their unique characteristics. Kids will learn bird anatomy, how they are able to fly, why they build nests, how they raise their young, and more. They'll also learn to identify the birds they see every day and do activities that explore the habits and preferences of different species of birds. Students will learn about bats, some of the most useful and wonderful flying creatures in the world. As they study the physical characteristics and lifestyle of the bat, they'll gain a new appreciation for these creatures. Finally, kids will get up close and personal to the insect world. They'll learn how to identify and classify the many different types of bugs they see, and they'll even get to design their own experiments with different insect species. Kids will get the opportunity to keep their own field journals as they are encouraged to be their own scientist as they observe and understand the world around them.
