Description of Apologia Zoology 1 Lab Kit by Nature's Workshop

Homeschooling, though challenging, can be one of the most rewarding jobs on the planet. That’s why we seek to provide you with high-quality academic resources that make the day-to-day a little more beneficial and fun for everyone. Explore our expansive selection for the entire family and discover the joy that awaits you on your homeschooling journey!

This lab kit, designed to accompany Apologia's Exploring Creation with Zoology 1, contains the items you need to complete each experiment and activity - all in one convenient location! Using the items in this kit, students will be able to see caterpillars grow into butterflies, observe ants in a homemade ant farm, and display interesting insect specimens. It is certain to enhance students’ learning experiences by ensuring that all hands-on activities can be successfully completed (without a scavenger hunt before each one!). And you'll be saving money, since items won't need to be purchased in bulk (for example, buying an entire box of cheesecloth when only a small 6x6" square is required)! Items are packaged in individual lesson packs for ease of use. See the following table for a list of items included in this lab:

We were very pleased with the Astronomy curriculum by Apologia. We worked with a co-op for this subject only and it was great. The information is deep, yet written in easy to comprehend language. The experiments and projects are fun to do. We did the whole book in a semester with the co-op, although it may be done over the course of a year. We are looking forward to starting the next in the series, which is Botany.

Look at the two different notebooking journals. There is a regular version and a Jr. version. We bought both and use both with our son depending on his needs. We love the detailed color pages of the Jr. Journal yet the activities in the regular version were more his age level. I used this with our 2nd and 3rd graders together and got both notebook journals so we can vary the activities to the abilities of the child. Love this curriculum, I can't say enough good things about it.
