Free Schedules for Apologia's Science Books -  Both co-op and individual schedulesscheduleHere at you will find free schedules for some of the courses that are published by Apologia Educational Ministries. We used the original four books Exploring Creation With General Science, Exploring Creation With Physical Science, Exploring Creation With Biology, and Exploring Creation With Chemistry. My children enjoyed the books and that is why this part of my web site exists and that is why I have posted my schedules. I do not have a schedule for every book or edition. If I do not have what you need look at the co-op page. A co-op schedule could serve as a basis for a class schedule.

Apologia Co-op Schedules: Several homeschoolers have generously donated their co-op schedules to be used by other homeschoolers at their science co-ops.

faqsTwo Common FAQ's that I receive once someone looks here and does not find the desired schedule:
1. Do you have "said" schedule? If I do not have it I will answer, "No, but have you looked at the co-op schedules?"
2. Do you know where I can find "said" schedule? I will reply no to this question because I do not know.

+Elementary Series

The books in the elementary series, named the "The Young Explorer Series," are written by Jeannie Fulbright. The books are for children who are ages of six through twelve. I do not have schedules for those books and I explain why at Elementary Series. I have planners for the books at TOC Planners. I've made a Toc Planner for each of the six books (as of autumn 2010).
Co-op Bookmarks:
Exploring Creation with Botany
Exploring Creation with Zoology

I've made a lot of resources for this book and I have written about it as well. Others have donated resources. The first page is the "General Science Home Page" and the rest of the pages are linked below.

+Exploring Creation with Physical Scienceegg experiment

Exploring Creation with Physical Science was the first book that we used. We really enjoyed both the book and the experiments. I think our enjoyment shows in my first edition original schedule. My other schedules are more refined I suppose. Below are the links to my resources for Exploring Creation with Physical Science.

+Exploring Creation with Biology

See also the schedules at see alsoCore Foundations

Exploring Creation with Biology has so much vocabulary that I was inspired to make vocabulary bookmarks to be used as a study aid by my children. I put the bookmarks online and they became widely used by other homeschooled students. I was very busy during the year that we used this book and the years beyond, and as a result, I do not have many resources for this book, but I do have the important ones, the bookmarks and a schedule or two.

Co-op Schedules

I have a link named More Biology in the menu. There are a few resources on that page for these two books: "The Human Body: Fearfully and Wonderfully Made!" and "Marine Biology." What I have on those pages is all that I have other than co-op schedules.
There is a co-op schedule for both "The Human Body: Fearfully and Wonderfully Made!" and "Marine Biology."

+Exploring Creation with Chemistry

I was incredibly busy both times that we used the chemistry book. I made a basic checklist instead of a schedule and I made bookmarks.

My Yellow Science Planner

is my favorite planner for classes like these

Donna Young's excellent science planner

The yellow planner is in DOC doc (word) format. Each week's table is separate so that is can expand as needed without affecting the other tables. This link will take you directly to the page with Donna Young's Science Planners. There are two - The Gray One and The Yellow One. I'm just saying - the yellow one is my favorite. -Donna
