This lab kit is designed to accompany Apologia's Exploring Creation with Astronomy.  Perfect for the independent learner or busy family, this kit contains most of the items you need to complete the experiments in the textbook. Using the items in this lab kit, students will be able to create a model of the solar system, assemble their own telescope, and find out how craters form on the moon!  Items are packaged in individual lesson bags to correspond with lessons in the textbook.

This kit by Nature's Workshop Plus contains approximately 75 items for doing the basic experiments found in Apologia's Exploring Creation with Astronomy textbook.

This kit does not contain materials or instructions for the optional "additional activities" referenced in the textbook and student notebook. Apologia has available an exclusive kit which contains materials and instruction for the textbook activities, as well the the additional activities.
