I am a mom of eight children ranging from 6yrs to 16yrs We got this Biology program and absolutely loved it I was looking for more auditory material for my daughter who struggles with dyslexia It was simple to use gave us a fun well rounded view of Biology and was easily adaptable to all ages I thought my high school students were challenged while the whole family was drawn into learning There is some teacher preparation but once the guide book and accreditation pages had been printed I thought the preparation was minimal I thought it added enough structure for families that like to have a solid plan and plenty of flexibility for those who enjoy pausing to study something of interest for several weeks Each child was able to participate in delight directed learning when we went to the library for our supplemental material I thought Biology 101 did an excellent job catering to each child's learning style I never had a single groan when it came time to do Biology It was worth the expense and then some Loved it!

This is the best Biology course I have found! I have children ranging from adult down to K-5 I have used many Biology courses for the older ones throughout the years and I feel this one is the best one I have come across The DVD holds the youngest's attention and clearly explains things in a way that is understandable with a complete Biblical foundation The printable pages for keeping track of work makes this a full credit of Biology with a keepsake of work completed for your High School student's portfolio Plus the benefit for the younger student is laying a groundwork for when they actually "do" the work involved with this program in later years Five Stars!!!!

We really appreciated this Biology course My son has Aspergers and is not good at Science Labs were not even an option but with the additional accreditation booklet I chose what was important and workable for him Multiple-learning styles are good for learning disabilities So watching the DVD reading the guidebook writing short essays and doing other hands-on activities provided the variety that was needed The DVD segments were well done and Mr Olson kept our attention This is an excellent course and can be used alone with the resources provided or as a supplement to other curriculums

I really like the way this DVD can be used for almost any age. All of my kids watch the DVD and then my oldest does the work.

Great Creation-Based Biology
We were excited to have found this creation-based Biology course for our teenagers. Neither will be going into a science career, so we feel this gives them the perfect, basic information they will need in life.

We are loving this!
This set of DVDs has a companion workbook that is printable right from one of the disks. This resource digs even deeper into what is said on the videos. It references the Bible and helps students to understand why we can look to the Bible for answers to scientific questions. You will find quizzes to gauge students' learning. There are also lesson plans that lay out in detail how to turn this program into an accredited class. The ideas are great and my children are learning a lot. I would love to try other titles in this series!

I picked this biology curriculum based on reviews and watching the first lesson via youtube. It seems to be a great interactive, faith-based biology set.
Jennifer M on Apr 26, 2016
We are ordering this on the recommendation of a friend. Our daughter does not like science for the most part, and we are looking for a different approach that might keep her attention and develop a better understanding. Hopefully the DVD teaching approach will help with the added time of reading.

Reading the favorable reviews by busy, home-schooling mothers was instrumental in my purchasing decision.
Kevin T on Mar 17, 2016
"We watched the sample of these dvds and our son would say "buy it" now and then because he was so into them. Also, my husband and I watched them with him and all 3 of us would say, "AHHHH!" at things we hadn't known before. Very engaging. We also love the Biblical perspective."

we wanted a biology course that would be helpful for visual/audio learners that also included God as most are geared toward evolution only
Debra N on Nov 16, 2015
We are really struggling with the current curriculum and we are at a standstill. I checked the reviews on this curriculum and purchased it in hopes that it will work for us.
Carla G on Oct 30, 2015
I am hoping this is the program for one of my children who struggles with book learning and is a very auditory learner. Thanks!

Carole H on Aug 19, 2017
Do I need to also buy a workbook with the disks?
A shopper on Oct 8, 2015
BEST ANSWER: There is no workbook. On the last DVD is a printable "Course Accreditation Program" that lists activities you can do to make it a full Biology course. We are finding that we have to add some activities from outside sources to feel like we are really spending enough time on Biology.
Does this course offer any hands-on experiments? Dissections and microscope use?
A shopper on Jun 15, 2016
BEST ANSWER: I believe that was all lecture. What I did was arrange a group of students to do dissections all last summer. So we did those (I buy the kits from Carolina Science Company) and that was a good lead in to the course for fall. Also, I bought him Anatomy Coloring books from here. They are "adult/college" level coloring pages of cells, etc., to help cement things and do it more in a low stress way. My son has a hard time carrying a full load due to a previous illness, so I try to spread things out and make allowances.
How long is a daily lesson?
A shopper on Aug 22, 2017
BEST ANSWER: The lessons are quite short. This is the first science curriculum my son actually enjoyed...loved it actually. I never really timed how long it took him since he is very independent. The average DVD lesson is between 20 and 45 minutes, but they do not watch the video every day just at the beginning of a topic. There is a pdf file workbook on the dvds with quizzes and then an add on booklet to make the curriculum accredited for high school. There is a lesson plan already printed in with the workbook that gives day by day lessons.
