    Students watch as the instructor, Wes Olson, explains the definition of life and takes you through the days of Creation and the specimens created on those days. In order, you will learn about plants, water animals, flying creatures, land animals, and mankind, and wrap it all up with lessons about genetics. There are 4 DVDs for a total running time of 4 ½ hours. The author describes this course as a “super-condensed, fun-filled, fascinating overview of the world of biology.” If you grasp the basics taught in this program, you’ll have a solid understanding of biology. The 4th disc contains the PDF files. High school credits are based on hours spent on a course of study, and 120-180 hours constitutes one credit. This course totals 135 hours if you follow the accreditation schedule. You could add dissection labs or microscope labs for more content. Note that the activities in this course are simple labs like identifying plants and animals or watching a fish, so if you live in a state which requires lab sciences for high school credit you will need to make some additions.

    The study of science begins with an appreciation of the world about us - the living, breathing creation that is ours to enjoy. The beauty of our natural world surrounds us. It encompasses the rising sun in the early morn, overflows the river beds, and spans the wings of eagles. Teaching our children to appreciate the beauty and the science of their natural world is a goal worthy of the consideration of parents and teachers alike.

    This charming 1950s reprint has been designed to assist you in teaching the natural sciences. Offering 100 lessons that follow a traditional monthly school schedule, September through June, each lesson begins with an overview, explanatory information, and any necessary teacher preparations. The activities that follow provide the core of the lessons. Activities are divided into four areas: All Grades (1-8); Primary Grades (1-3); Intermediate Grades (3-5) and Junior Grades (5-8). Overlapping grade recommendations are numerous, making this a perfect resource for homeschool families and multi-level co-ops or classrooms. A listing of recommended books and web links is included to further expand lessons. A sampling of lessons included are: Animal life in the classroom, Birds going South, Autumn colors, planting bulbs, Insects-friends and foes in Autumn; How Plants/Animals prepare for Winter; Stars in December; Winter Habits of Some Wild Mammals; Who Has Seen the Wind?; Classroom Hatcheries; Nature Excursions in the Spring; and many more! Also included are monthly calendars which correspond to each unit and provide additional observations and activities.

    Let me share from Lesson 61 - Little Things We Seldom See-Germs: "What a thrill to the Dutch janitor Leeuwenhoek when, with lenses ground by himself, he saw 'wee beasties-a thousand times smaller than a louse's eye' in a drop of water! What he saw were the first bacteria seen by human eyes. These tiny, living things eat and grow, travel and multiply, and live lives as real as those of any other plants or animals. They live in almost every sort of place: in water, in soil, in air, on dust, in milk and other food, in and on our bodies; we cannot escape them…" Activity suggestions for all grade reinforces that germs hitchhike on drops of saliva, the breath, handkerchiefs, pencils etc. and asks students to make a mural entitled, "Little Hitchhikers." A Primary and Junior Grade activity is to illustrate a poem on germs. Junior and Intermediate Grade activities include: Observing raw milk and pasteurized milk for a few days to determine which milk sours first and reading a poem entitled, "Mushroom Song."

    All in all, this resource provides a wealth of instructional information to engage children in learning about the natural world around them. Lessons are easy to follow and provide ample activity suggestions, allowing you to do them all or to pick and choose activities to best meet your educational goals. As a family who incorporated nature studies throughout our home-learning, this would have quickly become a "go-to" resource, along with the Handbook of Nature Study by Anna Comstock, as the lessons are more specific to younger and middle school children along with more age-appropriate activities. Black and White Illustrations abound. Detailed Index. 445 pgs, pb. ~Deanne

    This huge calendar is intended to be used in a classroom setting, but could be fun in a home as well. The chart measures 30.75"W x 44.25"H and is made out of durable nylon. The calendar and chart is great for exploring days of the week, months, years, weather, seasons, holidays, and special events. The blue nylon background has clear plastic pockets. Colorful word, number, and picture cards made out of laminated cardboard are included to put in the pockets. On the top of the chart there are pockets for month and year cards (up through 2026). Then the days of the week are listed, and there are plenty of square pockets to insert numbers to form that month's calendar. The next section of the chart has a pocket for the current day of the week, the day it was yesterday, and the day it will be tomorrow. A pocket to display a season card is also included. A section for "Today's Weather" is then located on the bottom of the chart with pockets to insert cards that display things like rain, a cloud over the sun, snowflakes, wind, etc. There are 76 picture cards (including 12 blank cards you can decorate yourself), that can be placed on the calendar showing holidays, seasons, and special classroom events like field trips and the last day of school. There are 19 word cards displaying the months and days of the week and 41 number cards that show the years and dates. Three yellow storage pockets are sewn into the bottom of the chart to hold all the cards not in use. Six holes are punched in the top of the chart and reinforced with metal for easy hanging. This chart provides a fun way to start off your school day and is a great visual aid for teaching young kids about calendars. ~ Rachel
