You Don't Need This Book
Really! However, for some of you, it may be the most useful science supplement you can buy, and that is why we are excited to offer it.

How the Young Explorer Series Uses Notebooks
The Young Explorer Series is our favorite science program for young scientists, and with good reason. The Charlotte Mason approach provides lots of information in a readable, engaging format. Lessons are designed to be spread over multiple weeks, with significant portions devoted to hands-on experiments and to notebook keeping.

Notebook Keeping Explained
Notebook keeping is simply a system for assisting your child to document what he has learned in each lesson. With this book, your child will write out the highlights of the lesson. If your child is young or doesn't enjoy writing, you can instead use the Junior version of the Notebooking Journal, available separately. Regardless of which Notebooking Journal you use, this approach helps your child to think through what he has learned, distill it down to its most basic level, and communicate it effectively. If he can't reiterate it well, he probably doesn't grasp it.

A Wide Variety of Content
Filled with ready-to-use pages, as well as full-color supplements, the spiral-bound Anatomy Notebooking Journal includes:

  • A daily Schedule for completing the reading, activities, and projects, utilizing a two-days-per-week plan.
  • Fascinating Facts Templates for your student to record what he has learned with both words and illustrations.
  • Templates for completing the Notebooking Assignments.
  • Review Questions, which can be answered orally or as a written narration.
  • Scripture Copywork, with both print and cursive practice.
  • Project Pages for the student to keep a record of projects completed.
  • Take It Further ideas for additional activities, projects, experiments, books, or videos that correlate with the lesson.
  • Beautiful, full-color, lapbook-style Miniature Books, which the student may wish to create, encouraging him to record facts and information learned in each lesson. These are then placed on the Miniature Book Paste Page to display in his notebook.
  • A Final Review with fifty questions the student can answer either orally or in writing to show off what he knows about anatomy at the end of the course.

    Please note: This is the student journal only--the textbook is required!

    Some great activities. Some are harder to come up with the materials as others though.

    Anatomy Workbook

    I have a more detailed critique of the Exploring Creation Anatomy curriculum at the textbook page . That said, get this workbook and get an individual copy for each student. It has an awesome set of clear, acetated anatomy system pictures which make an excellent individual anatomy chart. You actually put a picture of the student on the very top of the page and layer the body systems over it. The acetate systems fold up so you can see how the body is layered. Very well crafted. Otherwise you know the deal with these apologia workbooks: Copy work, crossword puzzles, general questions, individual labeling charts, additional labs and varied lapbook exercises that you can utilize or not. 4 stars

    This may be optional but we find it a necessity!

    We have been working through the Apologia Anatomy and Physiology textbook. It is fabulous in and of itself but I purchased one of these notebooks initially for my 10 year old to try. Well to my surprise this was a beautifully constructed, high quality workbook that has really cemented in the concepts and vocabulary. It was such an impressive addition to our curriculum that I ordered two more copies for my 9 year olds. These workbooks have made all of the difference. We have completed the first 3 weeks in them and it has been so much fun! Lots of fun yet challenging activities to help learn and integrate the information. Nice work Apologia!
