I’ve heard it said over and over again that kids grow up so fast. Well, I’m going to say it again — it was just yesterday that my oldest was in preschool and now she will be a freshman in high school. Kids grow up fast! I’ve started planning her courses for the year and one thing on her schedule will be Apologia Biology.
High School Science:
I will admit that I’m a little nervous moving into this new phase. One constant over the years has been our choice of science curriculum though. We’ve used Apologia for several years and will continue to do so into this new high school phase. My daughter is particularly excited to start Apologia biology this year. Labs, microscopes, dissections— oh my!
You can view the table of contents, a list of the labs included in the book, plus a sample module on Apologia’s website. Through the year I’ll be sharing some of the activities we do plus a more detailed review.
I figure that there might be several of you still planning your course of action for this year or looking ahead to next year’s science schedule. I teamed up with Apologia to give one reader an Exploring Creation with Biology book, a solutions and test manual, and a full-course cd-rom. What a great way to start back to school!
Jennifer Lambert says
I know my husband can’t wait until my daughter is in chemistry. He has an MS in analytical chem.
I’m really happy to learn about Apologia — I hadn’t before and will check it out. I feel like our family needs something a little bit more thorough for Science. My kids are still younger so I’m not interested in this Giveaway but wanted to reach out and thank you for sharing 🙂
I could use this for sure! We are doing my typical hodgepodge for science this year (8th), but once we hit high school, we will probably shift to Apologia.
I would choose Exploring Botany…with the Notebook!
Heather Cook says
I love all of Apologia’s books. Another one that I am wanting to get my hands on is the Botany 🙂
We need the Biology set this year!
Debra Carroll says
I love Apologia. Science is one of our favorite subjects.
Debra Carroll says
I am also interested in Exploring Creation through chemistry.
Zoology: flying creatures
lisa rupertus says
I would choose Exploring Botany…with the Notebook!
I am really looking forward to doing biology with my daughters, but I am also excited about doing anatomy in a few years. That was my favorite subject in school and can’t wait to share it with my girls.
We are thinking about using Apologia this year. I just can’t decide which one to use, probably either Anatomy or Botany
Aleecia Hibbets says
I am new to homeschooling and to Apologia but I am definitely interested in learning more.
We are loving Apologia science in our homeschool. What we need is the Biology curriculum though!
Dianne Pfouts says
Ilove all the apologia books! thanks for offering this!!

Lara Plocha says
That’s a tough question – we plan/hope to use them all at some point. But, my son votes for Swimming Creatures of the Fifth Day – he is consumed by the wonders of the ocean.
We are doing zoology 2 this year and loving it so far! 🙂
I would want to study the anatomy course!
Lee Ann Porter says
We love them all but are looking forward to using Astronomy this next year.
Karilee Hayden says

I would love to win the Zoology to with my 3rd Grader’s MFW this year. We will be studying animals so the Zoology set would be perftect!
If I had to choose another one I would say exploring chemistry with creation!
Jaclyn A says
Marine Biology looks really intriguing!
My high schooler really wants to do Marine Biology!
I love Biology! I learned a lot when my oldest did Biology year before last.
And if you think your daughter might like supplemental videos, etc. I posted videos on my blog to go along w/ each module. Just things I found online. You can see them here: http://homeschoolersresources.blogspot.com/
Just wanting to share what I’ve found. 🙂
Awesom1 I will def. be checking out what you have found. Thanks for letting me know about the videos.
You’re welcome! =)

Wow. First year homeschooling–four kids, ages 6,7,9, and 11. A bit nervous, but REALLY excited!! Still narrowing down curriculum options. Apologia looks awesome! Thanks for the opportunity!
Kelsey R says
My son is excited for chemistry. Thanks for the giveaway!
The Marine Biology book as my oldest wants to be a marine biologist when she grows up. At least she does today. lol
My 6th grader will be in high school before I know it! We love Apologia and this will be wonderful to have!
It would probably be the Marine Biology book.
This is exactly what science my 11th grade daughter wants to do, but finances haven’t permitted us to purchase it for her yet! What a blessing for some family — hope it is ours! Thanks!
Tina Chen says
Apologia is a great science curriculum for homeschoolers.
We love it and used their elementary sires.
Very looking forward to win the Biology book.

Heather Lei says
Possibly the chemistry, because I never learned that in school and I find it interesting.
That’s a hard question to answer! I want them all! 😉 ~~~ That said, “The Human Body Fearfully and Wonderfully Made!” would be at the top of my list.
Alissa L says
I need the anatomy book
I would buy a
Any of the Advanced Apologia Biology. I have a child that wants to be a veterinarian.
Tabitha Zehner says
Advanced Biology. My daughter LOVES biology.
Marine Biology. We live near the ocean so have a lot of field trip options.
Wow! Thanks for sharing the fun!
Patty Rose says
My daughter is begging to start the zoology series!
If I had to pick another Apologia book, it would be “Who Am I?” 🙂
We’ve been loving the elementary and middle school science. This would be perfect for us! My son is ready for high school and I didn’t even think about ordering it until last week. I guess I’m clinging to my oldest’s childhood a little too hard! 😉
Oh, and if I could pick another Apologia book, I’d love one of their elementary worldview studies – maybe “Who am I?”. And of course the notebook to go with it.
I would have to pick General Science as another that I would like to study.
Being a nurse, I would do Human Body. We really enjoyed the Fulbright Human Anatomy book last year and I would love to do a high school level course.
Thanks for hosting this giveaway!
I really like all of Apologia’s science curriculum. I will be using the Anatomy book for my 6th grader this coming year, but she is also interested in marine biology. I am planning on this same Biology curriculum for my 9th grader, so I’m thrilled at the chance to possibly win it!
I would love all of the exploring creation books but if I had to pick one to start with, I would try the anatomy and physiology.
Anna M. says
This would be great for our future marine biologist!
Heidi Kemp says
I would love to win and the book I would pick if I could would be the Who is God? series\
Janet Osborn says
We are trying this out for the first time this year….wish us luck!!!
Tammy Darling says
I would study the Astronomy.
Kristi Gallant says
I have 8 children and last year was our 1st year to use Apologia. We did Botany and Astronomy. This year the elementary children and I are doing Anatomy and Physics. It is my favorite so far 🙂 How awesome our God is in His construction of our bodies. Every few paragraphs I would tell the children “Listen to this!!!” I hope they enjoy it as much as I have enjoyed preparing it for them. Our God is an awesome God! My oldest son is doing Physical Science and my 13 year old is doing General Science this year. We LOVE Apologia!!
Becky M says
I would love any of the Apologia books! I can’t choose just one. 🙂
Pam D says
We used all of the Elementary Science. We have also used High School General, Physical and Chemistry. We are doing Biology this year (and still need the books!) We we also use Physics next year 🙂
Traci Best says
Darla Shannon says
Would love physical science.
My second choice in books would be the Marine Biology books!
I would choose Zoology or Botany.
