Exploring Creation with Zoology 1: Flying Creatures of the Fifth Day, 2nd Edition is a homeschool science curriculum for elementary students. In this book, students will explore animal classification and the dynamics of flight and will be able to connect the design they see in these incredible creatures to their Creator.

They’ll also have fun engaging with the birds and animals around them as they complete the exercises from the textbook and Notebooking Journal (sold separately). They’ll learn how to attract local bird species and then identify them by looking at their unique physical characteristics, diverse nests, and intriguing domestic practices.

Curriculum Overview

We believe that your child’s education is at its best when learning begins with curiosity. That’s why this course was designed for elementary students with no prerequisite. We use the practical concepts, and things in their world to help them learn that science isn’t just a class—it’s a means for them to experience and discover their world!

In Apologia’s Exploring Creation with Zoology 1: Flying Creatures, 2nd Edition, students will soar to new heights as they learn about the dynamics of flight and the uniqueness of birds, the value and misconceptions of bats, and the anatomy of insects (they’ll even get to collect and study some for a project!). After students complete this study of zoology, they will never view or interact with nature in the same way again.

Phenomenal book!

I am currently using this to teach K-5 students. It is a fantastic book with many engaging activities and information that that age group (and adults for that matter) would find fascinating. My only complaint is that there is no pronunciation after any of the terms used in the book. As with many science courses, the words used are not everyday language. The bolded terms, and especially the names of the class/orders/etc, should have pronunciations. I just did the pterosaur lesson this week. Ever try pronouncing dinosaur-like names without a pronunciation key? Not pretty 😛

Love this revised edition

We are enjoying the revised edition of Zoology 1. The reading is in much smaller chunks. There are more illustrations of what's covered in each lesson. My children love the hands.on experiments. The lessons are short enough my child with dyslexia and ADHD can complete them before losing interest or getting overwhelmed. We are loving this book.
