Exploring Creation with Zoology 2 Junior Notebooking Journal
for use with Exploring Creation with Zoology 2
A companion to Exploring Creation with Zoology 2, this junior journal is much like the regular Zoology 2 Notebooking Journal but is designed for younger students or those with limited writing skills. All the lines in the junior journal are primary writing lines (a dashed line between two solid lines), and there are far fewer than in the regular journal.
This junior journal is perfect for:
Coloring, Vocabulary, Copywork, and Diagramming
Each lesson in the junior journal begins with two coloring pages for the student to color while he listens to the reading of the text. These pages are followed by a template page designed to encourage creative expression where the student illustrates what he has learned and writes a sentence or two about the topic.
Vocabulary retention activities are next, as well as Scripture copywork (shorter than in the original notebooking journal and with larger font).
Includes Templates for All Assignments
Templates to complete all the notebooking assignments, the Personal Person Project with transparencies for the animals, project record keeping, Scientific Speculation Sheets and, of course, the same beautiful, full-colored miniature books found in the original notebooking journals are included in the junior journal.
There are some higher-level activities missing from the junior journal, but they are replaced with cut-and-paste activities that bring the subject to life. What's missing?
Ideal for Students Uncomfortable with Writing Paragraphs
These junior journals will be perfect for the beginning writer or the child who is not yet writing well. Every child writes at a different age, so age is not the best factor when determining whether to purchase a regular notebooking journal or the junior journal. The best determining factor is whether or not the child feels comfortable writing paragraphs. If not, the junior journal is a great tool to help the child begin incorporating writing into his learning.

”Even with a very motivated, very science-minded student devouring the books, there’s a lot here. You know what that means — you get to choose the options which will work best for your learners.”Read the Review
This is a fun little journal book. It is a bit repetitive but enjoyable. Can be modified up or down to meet a childs ability and skill level.
I like this book so much better than the botany book we did last year. I live near the ocean, so I know about many of the animals in this book but I didn't know that a lamprey or hagfish existed until yesterday! Turns out, my dad catches lots of hagfish. I loved learning about cetaceans (whales, dolphins and porpoises)! I LOVE the crafts and especially the Ocean box we get to create. We make clay ocean animals or cut out pictures from magazines and put them in a box. Once we're done with Zoology 2, we'll have our own mini ocean.
My first grader is having a lot of fun learning right along with his big sister. He loves his junior note booking journal and I'm happy this is something that they can do together.
We opted to purchase the already made notebook, rather than make our own, for the apologia science. It was a good use of money! The book has no wasted pages. It would have taken forever to put this together myself and it wouldn't have been as great. We are an on the go family and the book has held up great, no lost pages and the cover is still on (I know that sounds silly but really I am surprised).
