Exploring Creation with Astronomy Notebooking Journal
for Exploring Creation with Astronomy

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
With over 150 ready-to-use pages, as well as 30 pages of full-color supplements, the spiral-bound Astronomy 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.
  • Field Trip Sheets to document astronomy-related field trips he enjoyed during his studies.
  • A Final Review with fifty questions the student can answer either orally or in writing to show off what he knows about astronomy at the end of the course.
