Homeschooling - Exploring Creation through Astronomy

This homeschooling year I have taken more time to plan. It is something I struggled with doing in the past. Part of our homeschooling curriculum is Apologia Exploring Creation with Astronomy. I bought the text book and lab kit as well as a notebooking journal for my oldest. They also offer a junior notebook.

My oldest is in third grade. My other children are in second and kindergarten. Since they are newer to reading/writing I thought the notebooking would be too much. I decided to search for something else for them. I knew I could find something that another homeschooling mom had done. Can I just tell you how much I love homeschooling mom blogs!

While searching I came across the site A Journey Through Learning. Their website is full of lapbooks. They have several for the Apologia Exploring Creation curriculum. They also have the option of black and white (so your kids can color them) or full color. They each come with detailed instructions. I bought the Exploring Creation with Astronomy lapbook for $8.99. I thought it was a great price. I can print off copies for all 3 of my children.

Here is an example of a lapbook from their website.

The kids and I are excited to put their lapbooks together as we study God's wonderful creation. We have their first two lessons already printed and ready to go as well as a three ring binder that it all can be neatly stored in. I am thankful that I found this site.

They also offer lapbooks in several other subjects and have very reasonable prices. I will be purchasing more in the future.
