We love the Apologia Young Explorer Series. When we first started using this, the fabulous notebooking journals did not exist. I had to find my own resources to create lapbooks and notebooks. We have saved you a ton of time and rounded up all sorts of freebies to enhance your time with Exploring Creation with Astronomy.

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