Review of Exploring Creation with Biology, 3rd Edition

“I am SO thankful for this revision of Exploring Creation with Biology, 3rd Edition. It is comprehensive, logically reorganized, and contains many useful infographics, while maintaining Apologia’s conversational-style learning from a Christian worldview and student mastery checkpoints.  It is the winner of the four biology textbooks I have reviewed for my homeschool classes.”

Experiments, Hands-On Activities, and Topics in Exploring Creation with Biology, 3rd Edition

In this 3rd Edition, all experiments have been updated or replaced, and new ones added. The experiments come in three types: microscope labs, dissection labs, and household labs. Household labs use only common household equipment. The microscope labs, however, require a microscope and several prepared and blank slides, while the dissection labs require an additional dissection kit with specimens.

We recommend that students do every assignment in the textbook because they are each created to add value to the textual knowledge your student is gaining. As a homeschooling teacher, you have final say over what you expect your student to do or not do.

“Creation connection” and “think about this” call-outs help students see connections to a Designer and give students another way of thinking about a concept that they are studying. Our books are known for their conversational style, and these sections extend the conversation.

Topics covered include:

  • The Science of Life
    • The processes of science, including what scientists do, the scientific method, the tools of science and the limitations of science
  • The Chemistry of Life
    • The composition of matter, the properties of water, lipids, proteins, and enzymes
  • Ecology
    • Ecosystems, biomes, populations, and communities
  • Cell Structure and Function
    • Characteristics of all cells
  • Cellular Energy
    • Energy of all cells
  • DNA, Proteins, and the Cell Cycle
    • DNA replication, protein synthesis, and cell cycle & cellular reproduction
  • Genetics
    • Mendelian genetics, inheritance patterns, human genetics, and gene technologies
  • Evolution
    • Charles Darwin, micro and macroevolution, the geological column, and fossil record evidence
  • Prokaryotes and Viruses
    • Classification, Archaea, Bacteria, and Viruses
  • Protists and Fungi
    • Characteristics and classification
  • Plant Diversity and Reproduction
    • Classifying plants and life cycle
  • Plant Structure and Function
    • Plant anatomy and physiology, transporting water and nutrients, plant growth, hormones, and responses
  • Animals – Invertebrates (part 1)
    • Characteristics and diversity
  • Animals – Invertebrates (part 2)
    • Arthropods
  • Animals – Chordates (part 1)
    • Characteristics and diversity

What’s Inside the Exploring Creation with Biology, 3rd Edition, Student Notebook

We specifically designed this high-quality spiral-bound notebook to help your student make a successful transition to high school science. This homeschool resource will help them feel accomplished and be more independent, organized, and prepared.

This notebook works in conjunction with the textbook. There are pages where students record their notes and responses to all of the On Your Own questions. At the end of each module, Study Guide questions help the student review the materials and prepare for tests. In addition, The experiments in the textbook are in the Student Notebook to ensure students get the most from this lab credit course.

There are materials found only in the Student Notebook that walk students through the entire process of designing and performing their own experiments. This includes determining a problem they wish to understand, formulating a hypothesis, devising a test with both dependent and independent variables, as well as a control group; performing their test, analyzing data; reporting results, and deciding if their hypothesis is validated.

Note-taking helps increase retention of information, review for tests, and produce a record of their thoughts as they connect the ideas presented in the textbook with their ideas. Additionally, a student notebook helps students keep a carefully organized, detailed, and complete lab notebook, recording labs they conducted using proper scientific methodology.

Taking good notes can make the difference between mastering a concept and not entirely understanding it. Effective note-taking provides the following advantages:

  • Students stay focused on what they are reading.
  • Students pay closer attention, which will increase their retention.
  • Students have their own version of the text to review for tests.
  • Students learn to connect new information to what they already know.

Apologia Student Notebooks are designed to help students be independent and take responsibility for their science studies as they gain and maintain their personal abilities to create structure and logic through note-taking.

The notebook contains:

  • A Suggested Daily Schedule
  • Note-taking pages
  • Pages to record answers to the On Your Own questions
  • Lab report forms for each experiment in the text, which will help your student master the process of writing a formal lab report
  •  “Design Your Own Experiment” sections, which walk students through the steps involved in designing and conducting their own experiments
