You can often find him sneaking the book off to look at the pictures himself! This kiddo loves animals.
Another thing we love about these books are their activities. Experiments are a challenge for me. Not that I cannot do them, but that I would prefer not to. I know, bad mom, lazy teacher. It's just that the thought of paper, glue, pieces, parts and on and on makes me cringe. Just give me a workbook and call it good! (ok, there is my homeschool mom confession for the week! No judging please) BUT, let's face it- kids LOVE experiments. And projects. And glue. And pieces. And parts. ugh!
Luckily for my kids, the projects that Apologia recommends are fun and not too labor intensive (read messy
here), so I do give in and do some. The first one we did with Land Animals was a camouflage experiment using M&Ms. See why I said YES to that one?
While we did not get the results that we were supposed to, CJ had a lot of fun trying, I got to eat M&Ms and all was good!

Yes, we do other subjects, but this is by far one of his favorites! Just in case you were wondering!
I would love to hear what YOU do for science in your house?
Oh, and guess what? We just got the newest in the series for review! Keep your eyes out for the Exploring Creation with Chemistry and Physics review next month! Can you believe it...I am actually doing experiments almost every day! I think I should get an award or something!
