    One thought on “Exploring Creation: With Astronomy”

    1. Exploring Creation with Astronomy is an excellent text book crammed full of information and it is easy to use Each chapter is divided into sections that are short enough to cover in even 15 minutes Depending on the amount of time I had to teach science on a particular day, I could cover as many sections as I wanted and have a good stopping point at the end of each time.The information packed into this text book is amazing, especially for grade school age children It is complex and yet my 8 and 1 [...]

    2. Originally posted on Creative Madness Mama.Ever since the very beginning of my homeschooling journey, including the years before my first child was born I knew that I would be pursuing a teacher book relationship with the Apologia Exploring Creation series from Apologia Educational Ministries apologia As my oldest daughter got closer to the age where I felt she would really comprehend the texts I found myself excited and started collecting the entire series Last year, we started studying Astrono [...]

    3. I really love the apologia series of science books for children They are well written and meant to be read aloud to kids I often pause reading to check for understanding We especially loved this volume about space The chapters were short yet provided a nice first experience into the word of astronomy.

    4. My sixth grader has never used a formal science program We ve done other subjects in a formal matter off and on, but science has always been a little haphazard, and since I m a history and literature oriented person, sometimes I forget about science altogether This summer, as my oldest child began deciding on some of his pursuits for this year, I was surprised when he requested a formal science to work on We looked at some different things together, and then we decided to start working through [...]

    5. We picked this up, then put it down, then picked it up again, and put it down I kept hoping I could find something I liked better and I never did so we just went with this Overall it was a good, thorough study of astronomy, if a little dated But astronomy changes all the time so any book will be dated.The photos illustrations are fantastic It is well organized and fairly interesting to read aloud It does a good job covering pretty much everything you d want to cover in elementary astronomy.I do [...]

    6. This is one of my children s favorite studies We have done it twice in our homeschool,and really enjoyed the text, the projects, and notebooking My kids were outside at night with their binoculars staring into space looking for meteors, spotting constellations, or just gazing at the stars During the days, they made a pinhole sunspot viewer, made a newspaper for one chapter, poems for another, short stories about being on Mars, and drew dozens of pictures, and many other projects They liked to ta [...]

    7. My daughter loved this book as a first grader I liked how it was very in depth but simple I did find myself having to edit some passages that didn t line up with my beliefs, which would not have been so bad if the author s tone were not so preachy I knew that the book was written from the standpoint of creationism, but I did not know that it was going to teach young earth Other than that, I liked the format, the graphics and some of the experiments.

    8. This book is so readable and interesting My 11 year old and 8 year old loved it, and we all learned so much We went to a planetarium to celebrate finishing the book Taught from a creationist worldview, the author explains the evidence for a Creator found in the cosmos, and the evidence against long ages of time.

    9. We used this to supplement my son s 2nd grade science Can be used for a wide range of grades as the olders will understand the complicated themes Love that it is christian perspective science

    10. We loved this book It is written from a belief in young earth creationist viewpoint Which, led to some good conversations with the kids as I don t personally agree with that ideology We loved using this with the notebooking journals.

    11. I thought this was an excellent science book, especially for the home schooling family Great information, easy to understand, but stretched you a little, good assignments, activities and projects.

    12. I love the content of this Apologia text, but I don t like the way it is broken down into sections I spent a lot of time making lessons plans and spacing out the workload on my own.

    13. Excellent creation based book My kids are elementary aged and stayed interested, taking notes all the way through

    14. Good curriculum, but I personally didn t care for it, as it was based for younger students I would recommend it for ages 6 13

    15. I know to this day we still don t have a lot of information about space and our universe, but this wasn t my favorite book I felt like there wasn t much detail and it was kind of a duh.

    16. I read this textbook along with my 7 year old and we both enjoyed it Very up to date Is Pluto a planet and well illustrated.

    17. My daughter and I really enjoyed learning about Astromony in this book It is very well written and geared toward the elementary age student.
