If you are looking for a rich, God-centered science curriculum for elementary school, Apologia Science is what you are looking for!
Each subject, Astronomy, Botany, Zoology, Anatomy and Chemistry and Physics (coming soon) delves deeply into the subject material, giving the child "ownership" of the subject, planting confidence and a love of learning in their young minds and an awe of their Creator in their tender hearts. The books, written in a Charlotte Mason style of conversational narration, will make you want to cuddle up on the couch with all your children and read away the morning. Your children will be so engrossed in the interesting writing style of Jeannie Fulbright that they will forget that they are actually doing school work! Each lesson is followed by notebooking suggestions and fun projects and experiments. Dr. Wile, a former university professor and homeschool parent himself, authored the next two books for Middle School/Junior High - General Science and Physical Science. Continuing the same conversational style, older kids will gain independence as they complete the entire course on their own, including many lab experiments that will prepare them for the demands of high school and college courses.
Books - We are currently selling the books for Elementary and and Middle School/Jr. High - Astronomy, Botany, Zoology 1, 2, 3, Anatomy, Chemistry and Physics (coming soon), General Science and Physical Science. Our apologies, but we do not currently sell the upper level books (Biology, Physics, etc.)
Deluxe Family Supply Kits - These kits contain pretty much everything that you need to complete all the projects in every lesson of the book. We jokingly call these our rubberband and cottonball kits because we put even the most common items in them. As a super busy homeschool educator, we don't want you to have to lift a finger to find supplies! We even have a 2nd Student Kit that you can add if you are using the book with more than one child.
Priority Supply Kits - These kits are affectionately referred to around Creation Sensation as the Wal-mart kits. What we mean is that this kit supplies the items that you can not find at Wal-mart (or items that you would have to buy in large quantities when you only need one). While most of the objects omitted from the kit are very common things that you probably already have at home (like rubberbands and cottonballs) everything NOT included in the kit is available at your local Wal-mart. And to make it even easier, we have included a Wal-mart shopping list with shopping hints to make it easy to find what you need. These kits are less expensive than the Deluxe kits, but of course, you will have to do some of the work yourself.
Co-op Supply Kits - Co-ops are a wonderful trend in the homeschool community! And science co-ops are very popular with both parents and students because a group setting is often what is required to make the experiments and projects really come alive! Apologia Science has been successfully used in many different cooperative settings, differing in size from a few family friends getting together once a month to discuss what they've learned, to formal, large-scale, school-like co-op groups with hundreds of kids. We want to make it easy for you to secure supplies for your group, no matter what the size. That is why we custom build each co-op kit ordered to meet the needs of the co-op leader. Co-op supplies always have free shipping..
