This is my third graders third year in apologia science, but my baby girl’s first. (See how excited my baby girl is?? 🙂 Thankfully, they will be learning together, so we only need one textbook, but they each need their own notebooking journals. I found mine at heartsathomestore.com. THEY ARE ON SALE RIGHT NOW!!!! Get ’em quick!!
Inside Textbooks: Here are a few pictures from the Astronomy Textbook…don’t ask my why I didn’t take any of the Botany text…it’s just because I am so organized!! 🙂 Sorry! They are every bit as good!
By the way, I found no difference in the JUNIOR and regular notebooking journals, if you were wondering.
Maybe you weren’t…
but, maybe you were!
|Nice big glossy pics & activities – the page on the left is an activity on “Making a Compass”|
|This is another example of inside the astronomy textbook. Lots of hands-on learning activities, as you can see.|
Now, I know the journals can add up, when you purchase one per child, but they are SO worth it!! Take a look at these activities: (these are not just workbook pages you can find easily on the internet, like so many “notebooking journals” can be…but these actually get your child interacting with the information they are learning about…that’s “the dream”, right?)
|Oh boy, making a lunar landing module!! I think my guy is going to love making this 🙂|
|Nice little creative learning activity – my arts and crafts girl is going to love this one!|
|Yes, finally an example from the Botany notebooking journal!|
Added bonuses: I love (adore, really) that they include book suggestions along with great descriptions of what the book offers (instead of me bumbling around the library trying to find what I need). 🙂
I hope you enjoyed this installment of my curriculum choices for this year. There is MUCH more to come…next up, Mystery of History!! Stay tuned! By the way, if you missed my review of Horizons Math, just click here: Horizon’s Math Review
