Apologia – Exploring Creation with Human Anatomy and Physiology Review

Apologia
Ever since we started home schooling I have heard people tell me how much I need to check out Apologia’s curriculum materials. Every home school mom I have talked to would mention the name. I admit I was very curious about Apologia and just what made them so special that everyone would recommend them. With the Exploring Creation with Human Anatomy and Physiology set I got a first hand look at what everyone was so excited about. I now know that I will be among the crowd who suggest it as a curriculum choice.

We will be reviewing Apologia’s:

  • Exploring Creation with Human Anatomy and Physiology Text
  • Exploring Creation with Human Anatomy and Physiology Junior Notebooking Journal
  • Exploring Creation with Human Anatomy and Physiology Notebooking Journal
  • Exploring Creation with Human Anatomy and Physiology MP3 Audio CD

The first thing I want to look at is the hardback Apologia Exploring Creation with Human Anatomy and Physiology Text book. This book is full of colorful images and information about the human body from a biblical perspective. In this book, they have broken down lessons into sections such as The Skeletal System and The Senses. It’s in depth enough that the older kids will get a lot out of it but also wrote with younger kids in mind as well. Each section has fun experiments or activities to bring the science to life for the kids. They made an edible cell and even found out how much their muscles weigh with the fun activities!

There are two different journal’s to this set. One is the junior journal. This journal is for beginner writers such as my youngest. It’s a great way for her to be introduced to human anatomy in an easy Bible centered way. There is copy-work, coloring pages, vocabulary words, speculation sheets, and other lesson add ons to help reinforce each lesson for them. There is even a lesson on the Braille Alphabet which I thought was pretty interesting. I like that the book also studies nutrition and how the body uses the foods we eat. I know they hear me talk about calories and carbohydrates but I think they needed the more child friendly lesson to really understand what I was talking about.

The Exploring Creation with Human Anatomy and Physiology Notebooking Journal is for older children. This worked well with my older daughter who is more advanced in reading and writing. It has harder activities and more in depth details. They can use the speculation sheets to use their thinking skills for each lesson and activity.  She loved the personal person project that comes in each journal. It’s a project where they build their own bodies with clear overlay pages that show the nervous system, skeletal system, muscles and respiratory system.

Both books have copy work pages for Bible verses in both print and cursive giving them time to build writing skills while learning Biblical principles.

Each book also has beautifully colored activities to go along with the lessons in the text book. These are great to build on what they learned in the lesson and we all know hands on activities are the best way to solidify new knowledge into their minds.

Each Apologia text book has a MP3 audio book the kids can listen to while they learn. The disc plays well on the computer and they can follow along with the audio. It’s great for the ones that are just learning to read and may need a little help.
