Apologia’s Exploring Creation with General Science, 3rd Edition for 7th Graders is a welcomed and long-anticipated blessing for homeschooling families!

For this review, our family received Apologia’s Exploring Creation with General Science, 3rd Edition Text and Student Workbook. There are also DVDs and audio CDs available.

What is Apologia?

If you have not yet experienced Apologia homeschool curriculum, it is my great pleasure to introduce you. We have used Apologia since our homeschool beginnings nearly 13 years ago and we still love it!

Apologia is a Christ-centered, award-winning homeschool curriculum provider for grades K-12, and online classes with recorded and live options for grades 7-12. Subjects include science, worldview, and high school history and government. Information is presented in an intelligent way that students understand. Not dumbed down. Students use the minds that God gave them. Apologia raises the bar for science education.

Apologia has continued to give us clear, Biblical, scientific knowledge that stretches our minds and reinforces our Christian beliefs. This science curriculum goes above and beyond what public school science offers. Students are more prepared for scientific questions with Apologia curriculum.

Apologia’s Exploring Creation with General Science, 3rd Edition can be used to introduce faith-based science to students who have not studied it previously or it can be used to review and summarize the elementary curriculum Young Explorer Series before heading into the high school level science.

What is included in Apologia’s Exploring Creation with General Science, 3rd Edition?

Rather then chapters, Apologia’s Exploring Creation with General Science, 3rd Edition is split into Modules, which cover different topics. Modules 1-4 teach the history of science, the scientific method, documenting and interpreting experimental results, and scientific analysis and history.

The student workbook gives middle schooled students a chance to work independently. There is a daily check system where assignments are given and students keep track of their progress. Each page provides clear instructions and places for students to write in their answers, thoughts, and scientific findings.

Creation Connections, called Creation Confirmations in the Elementary Curriculum books, highlights significant scientific principles that point to an intelligent creator God. They are facts that confirm the Biblical truths.

Skills taught include summarizing concepts, making a timeline, putting science into historical context, writing formal lab reports, using study guides, taking tests, and conducting experiments.

The text book if full of beautiful pictures, photographs, clear charts and graphs, maps, and information in bite sized pieces to keep kids coming back for more.

How did our family use Apologia’s Exploring Creation with General Science, 3rd Edition?

My seventh grade son, Nathan, has completed the elementary curriculum Young Explorers so he is enjoying reviewing and remembering his favorite topics.

He is gaining confidence as he works independently through the student book and the experiments. He is a science lover and I am so excited to watch as his strengths are increasing. Apologia’s General Science is just what he needed.

Nate especially likes how history and science are blended together and scientific principles and breakthroughs are placed on historical timelines. It is putting science into a larger picture for him.

Are their more great products from Apologia?

Yes! They offer apologetics storybooks for 1-3 grade students that explain difficult concepts. The What We Believe Four Volume Set discusses “Who is God?” “Who am I?,” “Who is My Neighbor?,” and “What on Earth Can I Do?”

History and Government includes Constitutional Literacy and Around the World in 80 Days.

I have used all of these books and have so appreciated their wonderful resources! I highly recommend all of them!
