Explore the farthest reaches of God’s creation with this new and revised edition of Apologia’s award-winning astronomy course. With many hands-on activities to help young scientists retain what they learn, this science curriculum uses the Charlotte Mason methodology to introduce primary-level students to the wonders of our solar system, the stars, and beyond. Our tour of the universe begins with our sun, the planets, the asteroid belt, dwarf planets, and the Kuiper belt. Then we set off across the stars to explore galaxies, nebulae, and even black holes as they reveal the marvel and might of our loving Creator.
