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 Resources
With 200 ready-to-use pages, as well as 64 pages of full-color supplements, the spiral-bound Zoology 3 Notebooking Journal includes:


  • A suggested Schedule for completing the readings, notebooking assignments, activities, and experiments using a two-days-per-week plan.
  • Fascinating Facts Templates for your student to record what he has learned with both words and illustrations for each lesson.
  • Includes animal stickers for completing the Map It! activities found throughout the book.
  • Templates for completing the Notebooking Activities.
  • Review Questions for each lesson, which can be answered orally or as written narration.
  • Scripture Copywork, with both print and cursive practice--a valuable method for memorizing Scripture; teaching spelling, grammar, and writing; and for handwriting practice.
  • Project Pages and Scientific Speculation Sheets for the student to keep a record of experiments or projects completed throughout the course.
  • An enormous selection of book and DVD suggestions to complement your student's studies.
  • Ideas for dissections, projects, and experiments to help your student Explore More.
  • Beautiful, full-color, lapbook-style Miniature Books for your student to create.
  • Field Trip Sheets to keep a record of field trips he enjoyed during his studies.
  • A Final Review with fifty questions to test comprehension and retention.

    Exploring Creation With Zoology 3 Notebooking Journal

    Since my daughter already went through this course, we purchased the notebooking journal for my son. He is loving this course as he loves learning about all sorts of animals. The journal is a great addition to the text as it contains a way for him to keep things he learned inside as well as small projects and activities. It's a great addition and we are really enjoying it!

    Zoology 3 - Animals

    My children and I loved the addition of this notebooking journal to their science curriculum. There are so many activities and learning pages in there that advance them along on their path to learning about God's creation and his creatures. Even I'm learning things about animals I didn't know before. I'm loving it just as much as they are!!

    Can't wait to get started!

    This book is wonderful! I use this with my fifth grade curriculum and my students love it! It has so many engaging ways for them to learn. It really hits all areas of learning which is hard for a teacher to accommodate. It's a great resource and I would definitely recommend it to anyone teaching about mammals/land animals. It goes along with the Zoology 3 Text and does a wonderful job of complimenting it.
