Curriculum: Apologia Exploring Creation with Zoology 1: Flying Creatures of the Fifth Day
In this multifaceted course, your child will enjoy learning about a variety of flying creatures, including birds, bats, insects, and primeval flying reptiles. In addition to discussing together the weekly reading material, your child will become familiar with the system of animal classification, and will conduct fascinating in-class experiments.
The course material will be rounded out with a backyard bird & insect observation notebook, in-class readings of bird stories and poems, plus presentations of short oral reports on topics of each student’s own choosing. With the arrival of spring, we will observe the nesting behavior of a pair of mated falcons via internet camera, gathering data daily, and presenting that data to the class in graphical format. We will also be enjoying a beautiful movie on bird behavior and migration.
Everyone will need to purchase a textbook. Each child must also have a notebook for class activities each week, in the form of a 1” binder with dividers.
