Lab Kit for Exploring Creation with Botany
Have you ever used Apologia curriculum and wished you had a prebuilt lab kit with the supplies you needed instead of having to go out and get the items yourself? Have you thought about using Apologia Science, but felt intimidated by having to search several stores to gather all of the lab supplies? Whether you’ve been one of these people, or are just now finding Apologia, you’ll be happy to know that you can now make your life easier, and save a ton of time by purchasing the lab supply kit that correlates to the experiments in Exploring Creation with Botany.

The lab kit contains over 20 of the items you may not, or likely would not, have around the house. You will still need to gather a few things from around the house, like a few common office supplies, some kitchen items, balls, etc. You may also have to buy food items, but trust us, this is a good thing. You do not want a kit shipped to your house full of fresh fruits, vegetables, and eggs that has been sitting on a shelf waiting for months and months for just the right family to adopt it. That would be a lab experiment unto itself by the time it arrived, and you may find yourself needing to move just to get away from the smell. So you may have to pick up some perishable items if you don’t have them in your pantry already. However, for the things you would have to pick up at the craft store, hobby store, and/or superstore, this handy kit has virtually all of them in just the quantities you’ll need to complete your experiments. This kit also does not include a handful of optional or cost-prohibitive items that you won't find in your home. If you do choose to complete those experiments or parts of experiments, you'll need to pick those up.

Please keep in mind, however, that this kit is designed to be used by a parent or teacher with a child. It is not intended for use by children 12 and under unsupervised. Plus, you’ll have so much fun with things like “Test Your Air with a Lichenometer” and “Which Flies Farthest,” why wouldn’t you want to join in?

    We love this science curriculum, and this teacher loves the ability to be able to conveniently pull out whatever we need when we need it. Thank you for offering this to busy teachers!


    Bought this for my nephew and he loves it!

    Convenient and worth it!

    This is the first year I have LOVED and looked forward to teaching science. I’m so glad we tried Apologia Botany this year. The lab kit is such a great supplement and worth the money to me so I am not running around collecting every little supply for lab time! I have previous not loved doing science because with other lab kits all the little components (along with finding baking soda, borax, 4 cotton balls, etc!) are so annoying to find and then clean up after and this kit is SO MUCH EASIER. The curriculum (sold separately) makes it so easy to just grab what’s needed out of the kit (this item) and easily set up and clean up. Game changer for me!!
