Product Description:

The Student Textbook is available in a Christian Worldview version and a Secular version. Worth mentioning, content is marginally different (scripture references in the Christian Worldview version). Co-ops or classroom students could use the books concurrently with success. Lessons are expected to take one week to complete, with readings from 10-25 pages, so some lessons may need additional time to complete. Textbook readings are accompanied by lab activities. Labs are designed to be homeschool friendly and use household or easily found items. A sampling of lab experiences includes: osmosis with eggs and vegetables, creating a cell model, determining pH, and making butter and yogurt. You will need internet access for the Taxonomy activity. The Textbook includes space for documenting the lab activities although students may wish to make a science notebook. The author is in the process of developing video dissection labs; contact us for availability. No microscope is required for this course.

The Student Workbook is a vital component to this course and works with either version: Secular or Christian Worldview. The 2 worksheets per lesson contain a mix of fill in the blank questions, matching exercises and puzzles. Not reproducible, each child will need their own copy.

A Lesson Tests and Answer Keys book is also available. This contains the lesson tests, test answers and the answer key for the student workbook. Lesson tests contain multiple choice questions and photocopying within one family is permissible per the author.

This course would make an excellent introduction to the authors Friendly Anatomy or to ease struggling students into the high school level sciences to build confidence while learning. All books are soft cover. ~ Deanne

I loved Friendly Chemistry - focussed on concepts instead of memorization and busy work. Very clear.

This seemed to be a good voice for a student who was not really interested in biology and has dyslexic

From what I've seen, it looks like exactly what I need to help my son learn Biology. I want concepts to be easy to understand and not boring. The reviews for this have been very good so I am hopeful!
