Introduce your young naturalists to plants---their structure, propagation, classification, and more---with this engaging yearlong classical science curriculum. Influenced by Charlotte Mason and the living books philosophy, homeschooling mother Jeannie Fulbright writes as if she were chatting with her own children, defining and explaining at their comprehension level. Designed to be used with both readers and non-readers, each clearly organized lesson features content-rich narration; notebooking; and hands-on activities and projects using easy-to-find household items. Dissect seeds, force bulbs, make leaf skeletons---and take a close-up look at God's flora kingdom. Grades K to 6. 176 pages, hardcover.
Apologia resources are designed to give homeschooled students a scientific education that will help them make a reasoned defense of the Christian faith. Written by a former university professor, the entire curriculum is also devoted to preparing junior high and high school students for college-level science courses. Rather than offering rigid daily lessons, each Apologia subject presents the necessary information while allowing the student the flexibility to advance at his own pace.
The Exploring Creation with Botany student text covers plant classification, the development of plants from seeds, the reproduction processes in plants, the way plants make their food, how plants get their water and nutrients and distribute them throughout the body, and more. Includes all student material, on-your-own questions and solutions, laboratory exercises, and chapter study guides.
