Timberdoodle's review
An Anatomy Book That Gives Glory to God
Finally, Apologia introduces an elementary level anatomy book that gives glory to God as children discover what's going on inside their bodies! From the brain in your head to the nails on your toes, you and your students will encounter fascinating facts, engaging activities, intriguing experiments, and loads of fun as you learn about the human body and how to keep it working well.

Written with the help of pediatrician Brooke Ryan, M.D., Exploring Creation with Human Anatomy and Physiology covers many subjects such as nutrition and health, as well as the body systems: skeletal, muscular, respiratory, digestive, cardiovascular, nervous, and more.

Lessons, Notebooking, Experiments, and Projects
Beginning with a brief history of medicine and a peek into cells and DNA, your students will voyage through fourteen lessons covering many subjects, such as the body systems, nutrition and health, how God designed their immune system to protect them, along with embryology and what makes them a unique creation of God. As they work their way through the course, your students will add the organs about which they learn to their own personalized human figure to be placed in their course notebook, and they will enjoy scientific experiments and projects, such as testing the bacteria content around the house, finding their blood type, creating a cell model from Jello and candy, and even building a stethoscope!

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.

Another outstanding component of Timberdoodle's 2017 Sixth-Grade Curriculum Kit!

    Human Anatomy & Physiology January 20, 2017
    Reviewer: Kadence, age 12 from Martinez, GA  
    The voice is very friendly towards kids, and I really like all of the information it provides. This book has full-color pictures and diagrams to ignite interest, and is not any old boring black-and-white science book. One tip; definitely buy it with the Anatomy Notebooking journal because it comes with all the stuff you need to do the experiments in the book and makes it more engaging.  Really great purchase!!!!!!

    My child had this course her 6th grade year and loved it. Easy for parents to keep up with and help study. This course will go over it all simply. Love having GOD in her studies. Thank you Timberdoodle for having so much selection!

    Love this series June 30, 2015
    Reviewer: Christie  
    We love this anatomy and physiology series. As a nurse I wanted something that was both accurate and age appropriate and this was perfect. It covers everything in a good amount of detail, but still in a way that a child is able to understand the material. There is a lot to choose from to do as additional supplements to the book text as well to make learning more hand on. We love the program and can't wait to continue to use apologia.

    Glad I Listened March 3, 2015
    Reviewer: MandyJHoffman  
    As a first time homeschool mom I asked for recommendations from my friends and they kept saying "Apologia Science!" So glad I listened to them! This book is easy to use, easy to learn from, a great balance of textbook and hands on learning and SUPER easy to use for multiple grade levels. We have been using it this year for my 6, 4, 2 grade kids and they have all liked it. We did purchase the Notebook Journals to use as well. I have found from looking through the other Apologia books that this one seems to be the most visually appealing one of the series. Full of pictures, diagrams, helpful tid-bits along with the main text.

    Enjoying September 15, 2014
    Reviewer: Heather  
    We are two lessons into this book, but we are really enjoying it. There are so many check points double checking what they learn. Activities and experiments are great too.... very fun! Lots of the supplies for experiments are things you probably have in your pantry which is very nice.
