I created this notebook for my own children as well as for a Middle School co-op class. While Apologia has great notebooks, they weren't in a format that worked well for me. With this workbook, students should either fill in the blanks as they read the lesson, or they should fill in the blanks after completing the assigned pages to read.
The sample file is the complete Lesson 1, including test, answer key, the experiments/labs typed up for ease of use for the instructor, as well as one of my science lab forms.
The complete file is a notebook of all 14 lessons to teach students to take notes and absorb what they have read or heard. Each chapter has a test that can be taken open book, open note, or closed book at the discretion of the teacher and individual student. At the end of the file are the answer keys, experiments (some not included in the textbook but added by me), suggested lesson plan, and scientific speculation sheets/lab forms.
I hope this is as useful for your family and students as it has been for mine!
You do NOT need to make any additional purchase. I also sell the labs, quizzes and answer keys separately for those who do not need the notebook portion.
