Apologia Anatomy Jr. Notebooking Journal Giveaway


I am so excited to be going through Apologia’s Exploring Creation with Human Anatomy & Physiology book with my kids this year. We do science in a co-op setting and I will be teaching the K-2nd grade group. Since I’ve got the younger kiddos, I will be coming up with many hands-on activities that go along with the main concepts taught in each chapter but on their level. I plan on posting what we do each week here on my blog. One resource that Apologia has for this class is the notebooking journal. There are two levels, the regular notebooking journal and the junior notebooking journal.

The junior notebooking journal is much like the original Anatomy Notebooking Journal, but is designed for younger students or those with limited writing skills. All the lines are primary writing lines (a dashed line between two solid lines), and there are far fewer than in the original journal.
This junior journal is perfect for:

  • Younger students that have not yet mastered handwriting
  • Older students that are delayed in handwriting mastery
  • Older students with learning disabilities
  • Students that are new to written narration

I really like the inclusion of coloring pages and the personal person project. If I could have ordered those two components separately, I would have purchased them for my whole K-2 group! This notebook is very well-made and includes notebooking pages and some lapbooking elements.  You can view a couple pages from the Jr. Notebook here (the samples don’t do the journal justice—there are well-done copywork pages, coloring pages too!) Don’t let the word “jr” throw you---I would actually consider this appropriate for grades 2 on up. My group won’t be using this wonderful resource (too much writing for little ones in a co-op setting) but the older groups will be using the original notebooking journal in their classes.

That would be amazing to have. Three bones in your body are the tibia, fibula, and tarsals.

Hi there -

I couldn't get the comment form for this post to work in either Chrome or IE so I am e-mailing my entry directly. Hope you can find a way to work me into the drawing.

3 bones are patella, tibia, and ulna.

I have just learned about the Jr notebooks. They will be so great for my boys.
Three bones in the human body: clavicle, sternum, scapula (all in the shoulder/chest area). Ps. Is it cheating that we've all just started our health/anatomy? Lol
