Love having audio!

I loved that this was available and on sale! I love having audio available. I read some of it too my girls and other times we follow along while listening. Sometimes we even listen in the car! My kids seem to listen even easier in the car!


Adaptable and great for teaching multiple ages at once

We LOVED Exploring Creation-Botany last year when my kids were in K, 1st and 3rd grade. I love that I could use it across the grade levels and adapt the textbook to their level. I also used the Jr. Notebook along with it...exceptional.


Work on multiple subjects with one curriculum

My lefty working carefully on his handwriting this morning in his Botany notebook... I love that Apologia's Jeannie Fulbright elementary science includes a verse to copy that fits with the topic being studied. Science + Bible + English/Grammar + Handwriting
