Exploring Creation with Zoology 1
In this book, your children will begin exploring the dynamics of flight and animal classification, understanding why the design we see in these incredible creatures points us to our Creator God. Then, get ready for the exciting adventure of learning about birds. Your children will learn how to attract various bird species to your yard and identify them by looking at their special physical characteristics, diverse nests, and interesting domestic practices.
They will also learn the anatomy and the glorious design that enables birds to do remarkable things. After becoming amateur ornithologists, your children will explore the world of chiropterology, which is the study of bats. See our optional lab kit here.
About the Young Explorer Series:
When we decided to offer our customers a boxed curriculum, we knew that our eclectic approach to science needed a bit of fine-tuning, so we knew we needed Young Explorer, Jeannie Fulbright's elementary science program. Not only does this in-depth curriculum, with its gorgeous, full-color pictures and captivating, God-exalting text, sparkle in comparison to the mainstream, dry-bones science program, it utilizes what we believe is the most sensible method to teaching science, the immersion approach.
While other science programs, with their yearly superficial overviews, quickly become tedious as children encounter the repetitiveness of topic matters, the Young Explorer science immersion program will allow your family to enjoy the depth and riches that genuine science can give. Most home-taught children who enjoy science are being taught with a science immersion program.
Because this program utilizes a combination of the Charlotte Mason and classical methods, you can count on each Young Explorer book to acknowledge the evidence of Creation, have easy-to-follow lessons that are self-contained, include hands-on activities, and support National Standards of Science. Recommended for ages six through twelve, but written with a fourth-grader in mind, you may find that your older children will enjoy doing the coursework on their own, while younger, less confident readers will prefer parental involvement.
We encourage you to let your child choose the topic to study that captures your student’s interest. Your student can use the Young Explorer titles in any order since each book’s content stands alone. Because of the concept levels, the publisher suggests that Earth Science, Human Anatomy & Physiology, and Chemistry & Physics are better suited for upper elementary grades. However, younger students can certainly follow along and learn well if older siblings have progressed into these last three books. The Junior Notebooking Journals , for grades K-2, will allow them to absorb the concepts at their level.
If you would like a convenient, time-saving way to get nearly all of the materials you will need for the experiments, we now offer a lab kit! This lab kit is already assembled with virtually every non-household item the curriculum requires, so you won't have to go searching for elusive components.

Though not required, a student journal is available separately and is the perfect complement to this textbook.

This was an interesting book for reading about flying creatures. My daughter loves birds and bugs, so it was perfect, but she didn't enjoy the note booking, some of which was repetitive in what it wanted you to write about and the experiments aren't always our favorites.
My kids have learned so much from these books.
My two oldest read this for school and loved it.
My two oldest read this book and they loved it.
So glad I found this! I really love the immersion approach, I think it's especially important for science topics. Biology is a great subject for younger learners. I'm glad I can use this curriculum for all my kids, makes my life easier.
