JUNIOR Zoology 3 Notebooking Journal
for use with Exploring Creation with Zoology 3

This notebooking journal is much like the original Zoology 3 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 he has 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 and 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.

    What's Missing?
    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.
  • Please note: This is the junior notebooking journal only; the textbook is required!

    Wonderful addition to Apologia Zoology May 31, 2012
    Reviewer: Erin  
    What a great product Apologia created when they made this junior notebooking journal. It would be great for a littler one that wants to learn with the olders. But it is also just as applicable to an older that just doesn't like to write as much since there is so much less writing than the older journal that Apologia sells. There are coloring pages, puzzles, copywork and other things as you read in the description. Don't do Zoology without a journal, whether you decide on junior or regular. You won't go wrong either way. It is so nice to look back and see what your child has done (fun for them to look at also!) through the year. Makes a neat keepsake and good for portfolio review at the end of the year.
