Exploring Creation with Zoology 3: Land Animals of the Sixth Day
What separates people from apes? How can a Great Dane be related to a Chihuahua? Is there evidence that people and dinosaurs lived at the same time? What should you do if you encounter a bear? How can you tell if a snake is poisonous? Come find out answers to these questions and many, many more with Apologia's Exploring Creation with Zoology 3!

This third book in the zoology series takes students on a safari through jungles, deserts, forests, farms, and even their own backyard to explore, examine, and enjoy the enchanting creatures God designed to inhabit the terrain. Families will discover together the amazing animals from primates to parasites, kangaroos to caimans, and turtles to terrifying T-Rexes--but this safari doesn't end there! Students will also keep a record of where each animal is found on a map and learn to identify animal tracks.

As with all of the Apologia elementary books, students will continue the practice of narration, keeping a notebook of what they have learned, and enjoy many hands-on projects and experiments throughout the course.

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, Human Anatomy and Physiology, Chemistry and Physics .

Every hardback book comes with eye-popping, full-color pictures; recommended activities and projects; and engaging, conversational text.

    Reviewer: Mom of 6 boys  
    Love this series of Science Curriculum. If you have done other Apologia Science books be prepared this one is not as hands on. There are fewer experiments but it is still a great series!

    Reviewer: Home School Mom  
    Not only did my children learn from these books, but I did also. I have never seen such a Christian oriented science book. It kept the kids attention also. The activities are easy and informative.

    Thankful for these books September 7, 2011
    Reviewer: Pati from Havre, MT United States  
    My 6th grade child completed this book on her own this past school year and really enjoyed it.  There was no reminding her to do her science.  In fact if anything I would "catch" her spending an inordinate amount of time on her science.  She was immersing herself in it.  It was a pleasure to have her voluntarily and enthusiastically share with me things she was learning that particularly caught her attention.  I recommend this book hands down.  The easy reading of the living book style, hands on activities, and convenient addition of the notebooking journal for this volume make it very student friendly.
