Ultimate Mom Resource: Apologia Exploring Creation with Chemistry and Physics

Last winter, my children and I were blessed with the opportunity to read and work through the experiments in a chapter of the new Apologia Exploring Creation with Chemistry and Physics Science book written by Jeannie Fulbright.  We enjoyed it so much that my oldest has been asking (every week) when we will receive our final copy. He wasn’t the only one to enjoy it, though. My daughter and youngest son enjoyed it and they are also looking forward to helping big brother with his experiments this year.

Fun Chemistry Experiment with Apologia's New Physics and Chemistry book

Exploring Creation with Chemistry and Physics  is a great way to introduce your children to both Chemistry and Physics. The lessons are easy to follow and will help your children increase their knowledge as they move forward in learning about science. This book will definitely equip them for their more advanced classes they will need in highschool. But it won’t overwhelm then in their elementary years.

Today, I am excited to offer a giveaway for the Exploring Creation with Chemistry and Physics Text book, Notebook and a Lab Coat! Enter for a chance to win below.

  126. Karen Allen says:

    We’re just about to start our homeschooling adventure, so haven’t tried anything yet, but I’m very curious about this! As a former science major in college (pre-med for 3 years), I’m especially curious as to the depth and breadth of this curriculum, as well as the others on the market for homeschoolers.

  127. I used Astronomy this past year and will start Botany soon with my son. I love them!

  128. We have used all of the elementary science as they have been released. Ready to start swimming creatures this week. If we don’t win Physics, we will dive into Botany for the second time ( youngest 2 were too young the first go,around) in the Spring.

  129. Kim Krabach says:

    We’ve used Astronomy & Botany :)

  130. Libby Waterman says:

  141. We are currently using Astronomy and would love to do Chemistry & Physics next year. We love Apologia!

  142. We have used ALL of the Apologia elementary series (and some more than once :-) ). Apologia is IMO the absolutely best science curriculum out there! I love the simplicity of the experiments, the engaging reading, and most of all the bringing all that is learned back to our Creator!

  143. Yes – we have absolutely enjoyed the Biology text and look forward to marine biology this year with my high schoolers!

  144. Shannon A. says:

    We haven’t started our new school year yet but I have Apologia’s Zoology & Anatomy books for this year. Planning on going through them w/my 4 school aged kids together, ages 10, 8, 6, & 4. I think some of the experiments will be fun for my 2 year old!

    Very excited for this years program for us!

  145. We have used some Apologia and have loved it. We would love to win this and be able to add it to our cicciula. The kids love Astronomy, Physics and Chemistry and I know we would use this over and over. Thank you for the chance to win.

  147. Annie Sauer says:

    No, but we are starting this year!!!

  148. Dawn Peluso says:

    we would love to add this to our Apologia “collection” :)

  149. Lisa Smith says:

    We’ve used Apologia for our older kids’ science classes, and now for the younger ones, we’ve used the Exploring Creation books: Astronomy and Zoology III (I know, out of order, but our youngest boy really wanted to study dinosaurs. Still worked great!) I love the way Ms. Fulbright writes, and I love the notebooking journals. My kids still pull them out and look at their work from previous years. Our world map is still covered with animal stickers. And we still talk about the planets and constellations. What they learn, they retain!

  150. We love Apologia Science!!!

  151. Isabelle Lussier says:

    We are using the Zoology FLying creatures at this point in time but I snatched all the missing titles I was eyeing for earlier this year for an amazing price. Looking forward to exploring science with the kids!

  152. We’ve used Apologia Exploring Creation with Astronomy when the boys were smaller. Loved it and all of the activities. We’re currently using Apologia General Science with our 8th grader.

  153. My 6th grader is hoping for this!! He is more drawn to the Chemistry/Physics side of science while the nurse in me just wants to talk about human anatomy!

  154. Michelle Underwood says:

    My friend used some of the books last year. I looked through them and thought they were amazing!

  155. We have used Astronomy with my daughter. She is using Zoology 1 with a co-op this year, also.

  156. We’ve used all but the anatomy and this new chemistry/physics book. I’m so excited that it’s now available!

  157. We have NOT used Apologia YET but I am very interested in using it possibly next year =)

  158. We are using Zoology 1 and love it! We’ll do the whole Exploring Creation series for sure. :)

  159. We have not used Apologia Science but have heard awesome things about it and would love to try it.

  160. We are using the astronomy book this year! We are so excited!!

  161. I haven’t had a chance to use Apologia yet, but my 7-year-old twins have chosen this series this school year. I would LOVE to win it!

  162. Tammy Jones says:

    We will be doing Apologia Exploring Botany this year.

  163. My daughter would love this. Science is her favorite!

  164. Jennifer Taylor says:

    I’m so sad that I found this after already starting another science program! Thinking about buying it and starting over! This would be RIGHT up my boys’ alley!

    • Oh, don’t be sad, Jennifer! Do what you feel you are lead to do.

      • Jennifer Taylor says:

        Thank you! I have very mechanically inclined boys! We are doing Apologia General science for my 7th grader, and it seems so dry and boring so far. Hopefully it will improve, or we will switch! I think he would benefit from learning science that he loves, even if it is below his grade level. We have loved all the Apologia books so far! Thanks for the encouragement!

  165. robbie marley says:

    I have not used apologia but looking forward to trying it out
