Product Description:

Publisher Description:

Gain a better appreciation for God's creation through the Life Science curriculum from BJU Press. Life Science covers cell biology, genetics, the history of life, microbiology, botany, zoology, ecology, and human anatomy and physiology, all within a biblical framework. Your child will learn about both the limitations and the benefits of science and will be challenged to use science as a tool to exercise dominion over the earth.

Category Description for BJU Press Life Science:

Revised for 2013. Covers the history of life, microbiology, botany, genetics, zoology, ecology, stewardship of the earth, and the basic structure and function of the human body. A prepared slide set and microscope are recommended for this course; however, most slide images are found in the lab manual and others can be found online if necessary.




Category Description for BJU Press Secondary Levels:

There is more evaluation of science and its relationship to Scripture at the upper levels, and biblical Creationism is presented as truth. Teacher's editions contain reduced student text pages on the same page with teacher instructions, notes, and answers.




Category Description for BJU Press Science:

With so many secular materials infused with evolution, it's sometimes difficult to find solid science materials that are based on Creationism. Bob Jones Science is thoroughly Christian, including many evidences and support of Creationism and many "holes" in the theory of evolution, particularly at the upper grade levels. Vital to the program are the student activities, or labs. The scientific method is emphasized as children participate on hands-on activities and experiments throughout the curriculum. The junior high and high school levels are full-blown laboratory science courses, complete with a separate lab manual. Experiments are excellent, but some of them require unique materials or are difficult to do in a home environment. The revised texts are more home-friendly, though, and Bob Jones also offers a Lab Manual Supplement for home schoolers, containing tips for doing lab activities in smaller groups. We have used many of these upper level texts in our home school. We also have accumulated a wealth of laboratory equipment and supplies over the years, which has made the lab work easier. I have sometimes substituted labs from Experiences in Biology and Experiences in Chemistry (from Castle Heights - see index) where it's been too difficult to use a particular lab. Bob Jones has made it easy to obtain lab materials and chemicals (you can order almost anything you need for their courses on the Science Lab Materials Order Form), but some labs are still pretty complex for a home environment, requiring a lot of set-up and preparation time. For each grade level, essential materials are listed first, followed by asterisked (*) supplemental support materials. Support items used at multiple grade levels are at the end.

We bought this curriculum because our coop was using this. We purchased it on Rainbow because we didn't have to pay shipping fees, whereas on Bob Jones website, there was a 4% shipping charge...we saved $8.

Is the teacher's edition necessary if your child will be reading this text on his own?

BEST ANSWER: The teachers manual gives the answers to the mid and end of chapter review questions. The test booklet has its own answer key. Its a personal choice, really, depending on how you feel about needing the chapter review answers.
