Free Resources and Ideas to Use with Apologia's Young Explorer Books - Astronomy

Exploring Creation with Astronomy was one of the very first books in the Young Explorer Series! They now have regular Notebooking Journals and Junior Notebooking Journals available that accompany this series.

Description of Exploring Creation with Astronomy (from Apologia website)
This book begins with a lesson on the nature of astronomy, and then it covers the major structures of our solar system. Starting with the sun and working towards Pluto, the student will learn details about all nine planets (or is it eight? – your student will have to decide) in the solar system. Along the way, the student will also learn about Earth’s moon, the asteroid belt, and the Kuiper belt. After that, the student will move outside our solar system and learn about the stars and galaxies that make up God’s incredible universe. Finally, the student will learn about space travel and what it takes to be an astronaut!
