Apologia’s Young Explorer Series Exploring Creation with Human Anatomy and Physiology elementary textbook gives glory to God as children learn how they are fearfully and wonderfully made in the image of God. Written by Apologia author Jeannie Fulbright and pediatrician Brooke Ryan, M.D., this in-depth, creation-based journey through the human body explores everything from the brain in your head to the nails on your toes while always gently orienting the student towards the Creator.
Within the 14 lessons of this creation-based science textbook, students will encounter fascinating facts and engaging activities as they learn about the human body. Fourteen in-depth lessons cover:
An introduction to anatomy and physiology, including the history of this subject and the fascinating world of cells and DNA
The skeletal system
The muscular system
The digestive and renal systems
Health and nutrition
The respiratory system
Life in the blood
The cardiovascular system
The nervous system
The endocrine system
The integumentary system
The lymphatic and immune systems
Growth and development
Students will enjoy creating their own personalized human figure, with all of the organs properly placed. A multitude of scientific experiments and projects have students testing the bacteria content around the house, finding their blood type, creating a cell model with Jello and candy, and even building a working stethoscope! In keeping with the other books in the Apologia elementary science Young Explorer Series, the Charlotte Mason methodology is employed with engaging narratives, narration prompts and notebooking projects, all of which reinforce learning using proven techniques that strengthen retention.
Junior Notebooking Journal
Please note, this set contains the Junior Notebooking Journal recommended for grades K-2.
Complement and complete your family's study of Exploring Creation with Human Anatomy and Physiology with the companion junior notebooking journal. Your child will illustrate and document fascinating facts, record experiments, complete fun activities, assemble beautifully designed mini-books, and more!
This junior notebooking journal is much like the original Human Anatomy and Physiology Notebooking Journal but is designed for younger students or those with limited writing skills. All the lines are primary writing lines (a dashed line between two solid lines), and there are far fewer than in the original journal. This junior journal is perfect for:
Younger students that have not yet mastered handwriting
Older students that are delayed in handwriting mastery
Older students with learning disabilities
Students that are new to written narration
Each lesson in the junior journal begins with two fun coloring pages for the student to color while he listens to the reading of the text. These pages provide opportunities for active learning while reinforcing the lesson's content. Following are pages with templates designed to encourage creative expression. The children can illustrate what they have learned and write a sentence or two about the topic.
Next, the student is given the opportunity to work with and learn the key vocabulary words presented in the text. Included are puzzle piece cut-out and match vocabulary activities, lift the flap vocabulary activities, partially filled-in crosswords (only two crosswords in the junior journal compared with one for each lesson in the other notebooking journals), and many more. These learning activities give the student another opportunity to see and think about the most important vocabulary words found in the lesson, increasing his retention of both the important terms and the subject matter of the text.
As well as vocabulary work, the student has a choice between print copywork, cursive, or both. The Scriptures used for copywork are shorter than in the original notebooking journal, and the font is larger.
Templates to complete all the notebooking assignments, project record keeping, Scientific Speculation Sheets and, of course, the same beautiful, full-colored miniature books found in the original notebooking journal are included in the junior journal. Unique to the Zoology 3 course are the Map It! activities found throughout the text.
There are some higher level activities missing from the junior journal, but they are replaced with cut and paste activities that bring the subject to life. What's missing?
The lengthy and technical Vocabulary Crosswords
The What Do You Remember? Written review questions
The Final Review
These junior journals will be perfect for the beginning writer or the child who is not yet writing well. Every child writes at a different age, so age is not the best factor when determining whether to purchase a regular notebooking journal or the junior journal. The best determining factor is whether or not the child feels comfortable in writing paragraphs. If not, the junior journal is a great tool to help the child begin incorporating writing into his learning.
A suggested lesson schedule is outlined for you, making this ready to use and enjoy. Perfect for younger elementary students or those students with limited writing skills.
