Who has not looked up at the sky and marveled at the sheer beauty and number of the stars, or the craters of the moon, or wondered what makes a planet a planet? Where does one begin to study God’s Creation? A good starting point is the brand new, second edition, award-winning homeschool elementary science curriculum Exploring Creation with Astronomy from Apologia.

Exploring Creation with Astronomy begins with a lesson on the nature of astronomy, then covers the major structures of our solar system. Starting with the sun and working toward Pluto, the student will learn details about all nine planets (or is it eight? Your student will have to decide!) in the solar system. Along the way, the student will learn about Earth’s moon, the asteroid belt, and the Kuiper belt. After that, the student will move outside our solar system and learn about the stars and galaxies that make up God’s incredible universe. Finally, the student will learn about space travel and what it takes to be an astronaut!
We recommend that you spend the entire school year covering this book, devoting approximately two sessions per week to the course.
For grades K through 6.
