A perfect complement to Exploring Creation with Astronomy, the Astronomy Junior Notebooking Journal, 2nd Edition, provides everything your student needs to complete this study of astronomy. Not only does it include all the fun and creative features of our Regular Notebooking Journals in the Young Explorer Series, but if you purchased the Apologia Science Kit that corresponds to this title, there are extra activities for your student.
This Junior Notebooking Journal will serve as your child’s notebook, providing a place for him to complete every assignment in the text.
Each lesson begins with two fun coloring pages for the student to color while he listens to the reading of the text. These pages provide opportunities for active learning while reinforcing the lesson’s content. Following are pages with templates designed to encourage creative expression and written narration. The student can illustrate what he’s learned and write a sentence or two about the topic.
Next, the student is given the opportunity to work with and learn key vocabulary words presented in the text. Included are puzzle piece cut out and match vocabulary activities, partially filled in crosswords, vocabulary stories, plant identification activities and more. These learning activities are not only fun, but they also increase the student’s retention of both the important terms and the subject matter presented in the lessons.
A detailed daily schedule in each of our Notebooking Journals and Junior Notebooking Journals makes planning easier. This schedule lists the pages to read in the textbook and the pages to complete in the journal.
