The Textbook contains 14 chapters that include full-color photography and diagrams, vocabulary terms in bold blue type, narration prompts, and multiple hands-on activities with plenty of opportunities to explore outside. Combine with the sold-separately Zoology 1: Flying Creatures of the Fifth Day Notebooking Journal 2nd Edition. 326 pages, hardcover. Grades K – 6.

About our lab kits:

Each kit is carefully designed to assist parents in teaching science. Having homeschooled 7 children ourselves, we know how much time and effort is put into teaching your children. We created our science kits to provide families with a science curriculum option that was both in-depth and open-and-go. With our kits, each textbook lesson will have a corresponding lesson bag. You will also receive detailed instructions and paperwork for what is included in your science kit, and the items that you will provide. The Apologia science curriculum is an incredibly detailed, thorough, and activity-based curriculum. We hope our lab kits help you make SCIENCE COME ALIVE for your children!

        We assess the inclusion of each activity, or item, based on cost, long-term availability of the item, allergy exposure, and ease of distribution. The following activities are not included in your supplies kit, based on one or more of the reasons listed above. Should you choose to complete these wonderful activities, you will need to provide all of the necessary supplies.

These delightful activities require seasonal materials from nature which are best supplied from a nature hike or from your own backyard.

 Reading the Lesson Bag labels

         Supplies are organized into bags according to the text’s lesson numbers. Supplies for lesson one are contained in bag one, etc. Because many items are used for more than one activity, each label not only identifies the items in the bag but also directs you to the location of additional items that you will need. By replacing each reusable item with its original lesson bag, the labels will direct you through the kit with ease. The labels also reveal the items that you need to provide.

        You will find that many activities require not only time and organization but also require items that you will need to provide.  Once you have everything ready to go, we believe that your study through this text will be a rewarding, informative, and enjoyable way of learning many new things about our Creator and the Flying Creatures He has made.
