Working Apologia Biology- Tips and Helps

We have started using Apologia's Biology.  After looking at many different science programs we decided that Apologia's Biology gave my teen the best, overall understanding in learning about living things.

Science Freebie: Animal Adaptations~

I saw this freebie today on facebook and was thrilled. Its perfect timing for us since we have been reading and learning in our Science about Natural Selection and Animal Adaptations etc.

I picked up this free lapbook that Hands of  a Child has entitled "Animal Adaptations". (They reached their goal over on facebook for having over 4500 likes. This will be a perfect addition to our science and just had to share with my readers. Be sure and "like" them on Facebook if your on there!

Happy Learning!

Lapbooking Templates~ Type it In

photo credit 
It can be easy to find lapbooking templates online for free.

Some folds we create on our own and add images and write the information down. But sometimes the writing can get exhausting for my youngest learner.

I hunted online all over for templates that you can "type it in" but didn't find much information at all. I did see a freebie over on Homeschool Share where if you subscribe to their blog you can get a full download of "type it in" lapbook folds. But I never got my download so that left me no where, again.

I went over and asked around and heard that Hands of a Child had a TII template pack. It was exactly what I was looking for.
So, if your like me and have been trying hard to find something like this, you can find it here.

Happy Lapbooking!

Creating a Lab Report~

I just finished writing up an explanation of a Lab Report for my teen. He will be using a Lab Notebook for his Labs. This is a document I shared with him today that he found helpful.

It gives a brief overview of writing up a Lab Report and also a template he can follow if he wants.  He found these helpful and I explained that he doesn't have to follow this template he can set up his lab any way he would like.
