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.
Following your frolic with fish and sharks, you’ll uncover the world of crabby crustaceans, sea snails, clams, and their soft bodied friends like the octopus, squid, and nautilus. You’ll consort with corals, find flowers that devour plankton, see stars and feathers that walk, leap and roll, and discover dollars that disappear in the sand and sponges that clean more than you might think.
From the microscopic to massive, no stone is left unturned in your student’s passage through the waters of the world. The creatures your student studies will come to life as your student creates replicas of them and adds them to his “Ocean Box” - a miniature hand-crafted aquarium. As always, each lesson ends with an experiment or project reinforcing the scientific method and the concepts studied. Among other experiments and projects, your student will try on blubber, investigate a shark’s ability to sense electrical currents, explore how whales can hear sounds that come from far away, and learn through experimentation which creatures make the best fossils. No matter how near or far you live from the ocean, you and your students will wonder at God’s designs in the amazing aquatic animals He formed on the fifth day.
Apologia’s second zoology book will take you and your family on a delightful exploration into the wonders of the swimming creatures.
Junior Notebooking Journal
Please note, this set contains the Junior Notebooking Journal recommended for grades K-2.
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 Zoology 2 Junior Notebooking Journal is perfect for:
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 and written narration. 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. In addition to vocabulary work, the student has the opportunity to practice his handwriting and is given the choice between print copywork, cursive copywork or both. The Scriptures used for copywork are shorter than in the regular 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. There are some higher level activities missing from the junior journal, but they are replaced with cut and paste, high interest learning activities that bring the subject to life. What's missing?
The Zoology 2 Junior Notebooking Journal is 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 which notebooking journal to purchase: the regular or the junior journal. The best determining factor is whether or not the child feels comfortable 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.
