Apologia is proud to present the first book in its Young Explorer Series. This elementary-level science curriculum uses the Charlotte Mason methodology to give elementary school students an introduction to our solar system and the universe that contains it. Narration and notebooking are used to encourage critical thinking, logical ordering, retention and record keeping. Each lesson in the book is organized with a narrative, some notebook work, at least one activity, and a project. Although designed to be read by the parent to elementary students of various grade levels, it is possible for students with 4th-grade reading level to read this book on their own.

  More About the Earth Please
ReNae of ND, 2/23/2011
I absolutely love the Apologia Exploring Creation books and have used almost all of them, and I will be using Exploring Creation with Astronomy again with my younger child, but there is one drawback: not enough about earth. There is only one chapter on the "perfect planet" (Earth) and I feel more could have been covered. What about rocks & minerals, atmosphere & weather, oceans, Earth's crust, etc.? I had to incorporate other books and curriculum to compensate and we still finished "Exploring Creation with Astronomy" before the school year ended. This is still a wonderful book filled with information and projects to delight any child and parent and, even though Earth is only covered in 1 chapter, this is still a must buy for those wanting a Christian based curriculum. Maybe the authors will be coming out with an Exploring Creation - Planet Earth and then this review will be pointless, but until then.... (Used with 2nd and 4th graders)
  My Children Really Enjoyed This One

I needed to teach science to 4 kids grades 6,5,4, and 2. This actually fit each one of them very well. I used it more as a survey for my youngest and gave him a basic introduction to planets. My older ones had to do a little more work. They enjoyed the notebooking more than I thought they would. The notebooking sparked a lot of interesting discussion among the four that we could not have enjoyed otherwise.
