    Exactly what was needed in the Apologia elementary science scope and sequence – the Human Body. We waited awhile for this, but it was worth the wait (as we knew it would be). Continuing their pattern of in-depth studies, exciting information, engaging activities, and biblical worldview, this latest course examines the body systems – skeletal, muscular, respiratory, digestive, cardiovascular, nervous – along with nutrition, health, embryology, the immune system, and the major organs. It also provides a brief history of medicine and an introduction to cell structure and DNA. Activities within the fourteen lessons include finding blood type, making a cell model, and building a skeleton. Oh! And be prepared! Your student will be looking for household bacteria. ~ Janice

    Required for Apologia’s 2nd edition Human Body course, this anatomy coloring book provides an innovative way to reinforce human anatomy for any study of the human body. Although designed for high school, middle school students may also benefit from this one. Each spread offers a clear and precise illustration with concise textual information as well as space for labeling the illustration. Topics included are anatomical position and terms, planes of the body, cells/tissues, skeletal system, joints, nervous system, sense organs, endocrine system, cardiovascular system, lymphatic system, respiratory system, digestive system, urinary system, male and female reproductive systems and fetal development. A neat feature about this coloring book is the inclusion of 96 tear-out muscle flashcards for memorization. On the flip side, a drawback is that the publisher elected to place the answers to the diagrams at the bottom of the same page - although my children may be the only ones who would be tempted to take the easy way out when labeling the diagrams! I would consider covering up the answers to encourage them to research the correct answers. 335 pages plus flashcards, pb. ~ Deanne

    Recommended for use with Apologia's Human Body: Fearfully and Wonderfully Made 1st Edition, although with the most recent revision of the coloring book, the page numbers no longer match up. This is very thorough, with over 160 coloring pages. With the revision to the 4th edition, the once-cluttery pages have been expanded to two-page spreads with most of the text on one page and the illustration(s) to color on the facing page. Other changes include reorganization of some topics and some updates to the text and terminology. Compared to the Kaplan and Princeton Review books, the drawings and information are a bit more detailed. This coloring book also seems more advanced than the other two, appropriate for high school or college students while the Kaplan book seems more appropriate for junior high or high school. Also includes an index and detailed glossary. - Melissa

    This excellent (but optional) companion to the Apologia Advanced Biology (human anatomy and physiology) course provides a place to keep everything together – module notes and lab reports. The introductory information includes a rubric for grading experiments, grade recording charts, parent notes/student notes, and most importantly, a daily schedule (no need for separate lesson plans). The module notes provide a uniform format for completing chapter notes, the On Your Own and Study Guide questions, and an (optional) modular summary. The consistent format is only one of the reasons you might choose this notebook option. Full-color illustrations (ready for labeling) as well as full-color dissection photographs would be other reasons. 450 pgs. spiral-bound.

    A sweeping tour of biology, from biological classification and naming systems to the kingdoms of life, with side trips into food nutrients, human digestion, scientific advances in growing crops, and hoaxes related to biology. Stories of many famous scientists are woven throughout, including Louis Pasteur, George Washington Carver, Robert Hooke, Carl Linnaeus, Jean Henri Fabre, John Audubon and others.

    Subtitled, “All Lab, No Lecture” and this book delivers! Truly a DIY Science book, you will find this a valuable resource with a completely illustrated guide to setting up a home biology lab without expensive lab equipment (high school quality microscope required), as well as an easy to use lab manual for a rigorous first-year high school biology course. Beginning with an overview of how to use the book, set up a home biology lab (including how to choose a microscope) and lab safety, the book dives into 30 lab sessions that incorporate nearly 80 separate procedures! Following each procedure are review questions that require students to analyze the activities using the scientific process.

    Topically, students will learn how to master the microscope and build and observe a microcosm. They will also explore the chemistry of life: acids, bases, and buffers, carbohydrates and lipids, proteins, enzymes and vitamins; life processes (plants); ecology; genetics; cells and unicellular organisms, including protista, fungi, plants and animals (worms). Each lab procedure begins with a list of equipment and materials used. While many of these are easy to find, there are some specialized items you will need available to begin: goggles, forceps, gloves, book light or lamp, various prepared slides (call for list); cover slips; glycerol; pipettes; scalpel, well and flat slides; methylene blue; butane lighter (flame source); microtome (instructions included to make your own); eosin Y; Gram’s Iodine; Hucker’s crystal violet; 70% ethanol; methylcellulose; pH paper; particulate mask; centrifuge tubes (15 and 50 ml); fertilizer concentrate; hydrochloric acid; lead (II) acetate; acetic acid; Beakers (10, 100 and 250 ml); graduated cylinder; 24 and 96 well reaction plate; sodium hydroxide solution; Barfoed’s reagent; Benedict’s reagent; dextrose; Seliwanoff’s reagent; test tubes/test tube rack and test tube clamp; Sudan III stain; Ascorbic Acid tablet; sodium hydroxide; thermometer; sodium dodecyl sulfate; alligator clip leads; agar; Safranin O stain; chromatography paper; bromothymol blue; Ammonium Nitrate; Nitrogen Free Fertilizer (concentrate A-B-C) inoculating loop; rhizobia inoculum; vermiculite; balance; Sodium Borate solution; PTC test strips; Amoxicillin antibiotic cap; Antibiotic powders (chlortetracycline, neomycin and sulfadimethoxine); and teasing needles. But don’t let the specialized equipment scare you from this great resource! The authors’ website The Home Scientist offers a standard kit containing these items (with the exception of commonly found items, the balance and the prepared slides). This website also includes links to recommended secular, online Biology textbooks, as well as a syllabus aligned to the 2nd ed. Apologia Biology text and the BJU 4th ed. Biology textbook, which makes this a worthwhile option for obtaining high school Biology with Lab credit on your child’s high school transcript. This would also make an excellent resource to use alongside the Holt Biology course, or to add a lab science credit to a Charlotte Mason/Living Book Science experience. Detailed index adds to the ease of use for creating your own Biology lab at home. 358 pgs, sc. ~ Deanne
