Exploring Creation Field Trip Journal Review

Hi neighbors,

Here is a really great book for homeschoolers and anyone else with children for that matter.  I was given the opportunity to review The Exploring Creation Field Trip Journal from Apologia Educational Ministries.  How many times have you taken a field trip and wished you had recorded more about the trip?  I don't know how many times we have sat around talking about museums, parks and historical sites we have visited over the years.  It would have been wonderful to have been able to pull out a journal about the different activities.

Exploring Creation Field Trip Journal Review

The journal is filled with information for planning a field trip, ideas of places to go and of course it describes how to use the Journal.  The planning section has information for both teachers and students. The list of field trip ideas gave us a few ideas of our own.  They also mention virtual tours, which can be fun and paired with an actual field trip can be an added bonus.

The journal has sections you fill out, like the location and date, along English for with free areas to record your own thoughts and to draw pictures, maps or include a photo.  It is a god idea to bring along colored pencils, a pen and if possible a camera.  This will allow the student to record information while on the field trip.

We have a small park like area near us that we like to visit, so this worked well for a field trip.  The girls also turned it into a photo shoot, because of the natural beauty of the area.  There are many trees, a small stream, a waterfall and a bridge.  Picnic tables are there for resting or having a snack.  Since we were there in winter it was nice to visit again with everything green and growing.  The falls are beautiful frozen though! I am sharing a couple of the photos we took this trip, but I am also including one from our winter trip just so you can see how beautiful it is.  I think next time we go we will bring a book to help us identify some of the plants and birds.  Please excuse the watermark, my daughter labels all her photos.

Later this month we will probably use the Journal when we visit the Creation Museum.  There we will be able to include information on dinosaurs, the botanical gardens and their petting zoo.  We will map out in advance what we want to see and do.

Another benefit is on page 6 of the journal there is a password to use on the Apologia Ministries website.  By using the password you have access to so much more information.  They have tons, and I mean tons of links to other sites with maps, museums, studies, etc.  Having all this other information at your fingertips is a major benefit.  You will get so much information from this resource.

I believe you will be very satisfied should you decide to purchase the Apologia Exploring Creation Field Trip Journal.  Be sure to follow them on their social media too!

What To Do About Those Fuzzy Uninvited Guests In The Home

When we talk about pests in the home, the most common that we tend to deal with are the creepy-crawlies that find their way in. Ants, termites, and spiders, for instance. Occasionally though, you have a real chance of getting a much bigger, fuzzier unwanted guest in the home. What do you do about the fact your home is at risk of becoming a wildlife sanctuary for some truly unhealthy and even dangerous beasts? Picture by Alexas_Fotos Know the signs It doesn’t matter if you’re in a suburban home, a country cottage, or a fourth-floor apartment. Some animals can find their way just about anywhere. It’s worth knowing the signs of pest infestation so you can confirm it and act on it immediately. Spotting droppings, keeping an ear out for scratching, and looking for signs of nesting like shredded paper, scrunched leaves, and grass clippings around the home without explanation can help you start fighting back.

10 Things You Need To Do Before Moving Abroad

From There is nothing more fulfilling than travelling the world and visiting new and exciting places. If you’re a fan of travel , then you might have thought about moving abroad at some point. Unfortunately, there is a lot to do before you can get on the plane, with finding accommodations and a job being the most important. If you’re moving abroad soon, or think that it’s something that you’d like to do in the future, then here are ten things that you need to do before you start your new life. 1. Visit The Country Plenty of people move abroad without visiting the country first.
