MaryRTOPhilippinesAge: 35-44Gender: female5 Stars Out Of 5Excellent Resource and Textbook for Zoology 2 Swimming CreaturesOctober 9, 2015MaryRTOPhilippinesAge: 35-44Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5The Apologia elementary science series have been an excellent resource for our science studies since we began homeschooling a few years ago. I really appreciate the sequence of science fields beginning with Astronomy, Botany and then Zoology. We are half-way through Zoology 2. When I explored another creationist Science title my children would have none of it. They love the Apologia series.
I do find the need to supplement with videos and additional images for my visual (picture) and auditory learners. Despite that, the content is accurate, up-to-date, complete and written with a Genesis/creation perspective. For my family, this book has been a huge blessing.

janeway5 Stars Out Of 5Swimming Creatures of the Fifth DayApril 2, 2015janewayQuality: 0Value: 0Meets Expectations: 0A science text that is written in a non-textbook tone. Helps hold the attention much longer. The experiments are fun and relevant. I prefer the spiraling approach for math, but this 'mastery' approach for science. I think it makes more sense. I think it helps kids to build a 'compartment' in their brains to store information. This course is completely adaptable. For example, my non reading autistic son just listens, discusses, and does experiments. My older daughter really likes doing the companion workbook. I highly recommend the workbooks.
annon5 Stars Out Of 5great textbookFebruary 27, 2015annonmy daughter (12yrs) and I both love this curriculum. It has allowed her to dive much deeper into a topic she loves and put it in a Christian perspective!
SingandPlay1IndianaAge: 35-44Gender: female5 Stars Out Of 5Right up our alleyAugust 13, 2013SingandPlay1IndianaAge: 35-44Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 4Meets Expectations: 5I ordered this program, after my daughter said she wanted to learn about marine life. When I first received the text and notebooking journal, I thought it looked like a lot of time would be required to complete the lessons. It can, of course be split out to work as quickly or as slowly as needed, so we started at a slow pace. My daughter has totally eaten it UP! She is in love with her journal - I stressed to her that she should make it hers (i.e. color, decorate, record interesting information, illustrate, etc.) and she has really gone to town. In the past, she has done science to get it over with, but now she starts each day asking, "When can we do science??" We started her ocean box yesterday, and the first words she spoke this morning were, "I wonder what creatures we will add to it today!"
As for the creationist view, it just couldn't be better. We are here by God's design, as are the creatures of the waters. We are really having some good conversations based on the information presented in the text.
