Description

Apologia’s award-winning Astronomy curriculum is written for elementary students and has no prerequisites. Because young students learn best when they are interested in a topic, the Young Explorer Series was designed so that each course can be used in any order.

Using hands-on activities to help your young scientist retain what they learn, Apologia’s elementary science curriculum uses the Charlotte Mason methodology to introduce the wonders of our solar system, the stars, and beyond. In this course, your student will explore and learn about the sun, planets, asteroid belt, dwarf planets, the Kuiper belt galaxies, nebulae, and even black holes as they reveal the marvel and might of our loving Creator.

Curriculum Overview

We believe that your child’s education is at its best when their learning begins with a spark of curiosity. Through practical concepts and things in their world students will learn and experience that science isn’t just a class–it’s a means for them to discover their world and its Creator!

Your young explorer will begin by learning about the sun, the planets in our solar system, the stars, galaxies, and space travel. Their awareness of the beauty of the universe and its Creator will expand as they expand their studies to the far reaches of what we can see out in space.

Hands-on Learning with Experiments and Activities

Students will build a model solar system, make a solar eclipse, compass, and telescope, watch a meteor shower, launch a rocket, make clouds, and locate constellations. All of the activities and experiments use easy-to-obtain household items and truly make the lessons come alive!

One Notebooking Journal for All Ages

Apologia’s junior and regular notebooking journals are being revised and combined into one notebooking journal designed for all ages from K-6th. These updated journals encourage and simplify multi-age family learning.

NOTE: The updated notebooking journals do not include primary handwriting lines, so if you have younger students, you may wish to add the handwriting guidelines or have them dictate to you what they wish to have written. Learn more about adapting a notebooking journal for your youngest explorer.
