Turn sniffles into a teachable moment! Teach your child about the history of germs and the mechanisms of life in this two-book biology course, which pairs life science and microbiology. Your student will learn how diseases mutate, ways science tries to stop them, our natural built-in defenses, human development, genetic functions, patterns in life in this unique, in-depth exploration that is rooted in a biblical worldview and encourages students to learn. A great introduction to these topics, this course works equally well for students regardless of whether they intend to pursue a career in the medical field.
Features: Each suggested weekly schedule has three easy-to-manage lessons which combine reading, worksheets, and vocabulary-building Designed to allow your student to be independent, materials in this resource are divided by section so you can remove quizzes, tests, and answer keys before beginning the coursework. As always, you are encouraged to adjust the schedule and materials as you need to in order to best work within your educational program.
Workflow: Students will read the pages in their book and then answer the questions at the end of each chapter. Tests are given at regular intervals.
Lesson Scheduling: Space is given for assignment dates. There is flexibility in scheduling. For example, the parent may opt for a M–W schedule rather than a M, W, F schedule. Each week listed has five days but due to vacations the school work week may not be M–F. Please adapt the days to your school schedule. As the student completes each assignment, he/she should put an “X” in the box. Test grades should also be recorded in the lesson plan where indicated.
