First Textbook in the "Exploring Creation" series from Apologia Educational Ministries, Inc. Designed to be a student's first systematic introduction to the sciences. Great as a primary science book or supplemental reference guide. The course covers topics like the history of science, scientific method, designing experiments, simple machines, archaeology, geology, paleontology, biology, and human anatomy and physiology. Therefore, its scope is quite wide. There are many hands-on experiments to do, and they all use household items.
