I have worked with Apologia Homeschool Ministries to produce Exploring Creation, a line of immersion science texts utilizing Charlotte Mason’s proven methods for teaching your little ones about God’s creation.
From the rivers and streams to the mighty ocean, God filled the Earth’s waters with animals great and small. Upon His word, enormous whales sprung into being. At His command, billions of plankton leapt to life. On that day, millions of creatures like the strapping sea turtles, the skulking sharks, the delightful dolphins, and the soaring squid gladly joined their fellow sea animals. Strong swimming bass traveled the rivers past the creeping crayfish and the sluggardly snails. How joyously crammed with excitement was the fifth day of Earth’s existence!
Apologia’s second zoology book will take you and your family on an exploration into the wonders of the swimming creatures made on the fifth day of creation. You’ll begin with a big splash from the whales and dolphins, then spy on seals and meet manatees before swimming with the sea turtles, snakes, and salamanders. You’ll even peek in on the primeval plesiosaurus and its pals.
This CD contains a complete audio recording of the course Exploring Creation With Zoology 2: Swimming Creatures. This is the perfect accompaniment to the book for students who are auditory learners, slow readers, or have other learning disabilities that make reading difficult.
Please note that this is not a standard CD. It is an MP3CD. This means that in order to listen to this CD, you must play it in an MP3-compatible CD player or on a computer.
The Zoology 2 Junior Notebooking Journal is one of the newest in the product line of the Young Explorer Series. A companion to Exploring Creation with Zoology 2, this junior journal is much like the regular Zoology 2 Notebooking Journal but is designed for younger students or those with limited writing skills. All the lines in the junior journal are primary writing lines (a dashed line between two solid lines), and there are far fewer than in the regular journal.
The student can illustrate what he’s learned and write a sentence or two about the topic. Next, the student is given the opportunity to work with and learn key vocabulary words presented in the text. Included are puzzle piece cut out and match vocabulary activities, partially filled in crosswords, vocabulary stories, animal identification activities and more. These learning activities are not only fun, but they increase the student’s retention of both the important terms and the subject matter presented in the lessons.
Like the highly acclaimed journals that accompany each Apologia Young Explorer textbook, the Zoology 2 Notebooking Journal will provide everything your student needs to complete his or her studies of all the glorious creatures of the oceans, lakes and streams. A companion to Exploring Creation with Zoology 2, this special notebooking journal will be treasured by your child as he or she illustrates and records fascinating facts and information learned during each lesson. There are beautifully decorated templates for completing every assignment in the book, as well as a detailed schedule to follow. Also included are pages to record projects, experiments, and activities.
