Exploring Creation with Botany
Beginning with a lesson on the nature of botany and the process of classifying plants, this book then discusses the development of plants from seeds, the reproduction processes in plants, the way plants make their food, and how plants get their water and nutrients and distribute them throughout the body of the plant. As students study these topics, they also learn about many different kinds of plants in Creation and where these plants belong in the plant classification system.
About the Young Explorer Series:
When we decided to offer our customers a boxed curriculum, we knew that our eclectic approach to science needed a bit
of fine-tuning, so we knew we needed Young Explorer, Jeannie Fulbright's elementary science program. Not only does this in-depth curriculum, with its gorgeous full-color pictures and captivating, God-exalting text, sparkle in comparison to the mainstream dry-bones science program, it utilizes what we believe is the most sensible method to teaching science, the immersion approach.
While other science programs, with their yearly superficial overviews, quickly become tedious as children encounter the repetitiveness of topic matters, the Young Explorer science immersion program will allow your family to enjoy the depth and riches that genuine science can give. Most home taught children who enjoy science are being taught with a science immersion program.
Because this program utilizes a combination of the Charlotte Mason and classical methods, you can count on each Young Explorer book to acknowledge the evidence of Creation, have easy-to-follow lessons that are self-contained, include
hands-on activities, and support National Standards of Science. Recommended for ages six through twelve, but written with a fourth grader in mind, you may find that your older children will enjoy doing the coursework on their own, while younger, less confident readers will prefer parental involvement.
Although the author encourages you to select books based on topics and not grade level, she also favors the following sequence due to the difficulty of the subject matter: Astronomy, Botany, Zoology 1: Flying Creatures, Zoology 2: Swimming Creatures, Zoology 3: Land Animals.
Every hardback book comes with eye-popping, full-color pictures, recommended activities and projects, and engaging conversational text.
JUNIOR Botany Notebooking Journal
Vew Sample Pages Here
This junior notebooking journal is much like the original Botany Notebooking Journal, but is designed for younger students or those with limited writing skills. All the lines are primary writing lines (a dashed line between two solid lines), and there are far fewer than in the original journal.
This junior journal is perfect for:
Younger students that have not yet mastered handwriting
Older students that are delayed in handwriting mastery
Older students with learning disabilities
Students that are new to written narration
Coloring, Vocabulary, Copywork, and Diagramming
Each lesson in the junior journal begins with two coloring pages for the student to color while he listens to the reading of the text. These pages are followed by a template page designed to encourage creative expression where the student illustrates what they have learned and writes a sentence or two about the topic.
Vocabulary retention activities are next as well as Scripture copywork (shorter than in the original notebooking journal with larger font).
Includes Templates for all Assignments
Templates to complete all the notebooking assignments, the Personal Person Project with transparencies for the animals, project record keeping, Scientific Speculation Sheets and, of course, the same beautiful, full-colored miniature books found in the original notebooking journals are included in the junior journal.
There are some higher level activities missing from the junior journal, but they are replaced with cut and paste activities that bring the subject to life. What's missing?
The lengthy and technical Vocabulary Crosswords
The What Do You Remember? written review questions
The Final Review
Ideal for Students Uncomfortable with Writing Paragraphs
These junior journals will be perfect for the beginning writer or the child who is not yet writing well. Every child writes at a different age, so age is not the best factor when determining whether to purchase a regular notebooking journal or the junior journal. The best determining factor is whether or not the child feels comfortable writing paragraphs. If not, the junior journal is a great tool to help the child begin incorporating writing into his learning.
