  • Item #: 048422
    Retail: $80.00
    Rainbow Price: $69.95

    This Lab Kit from Nature's Workshop includes most of the supplies needed for the labs in the Exploring Nature with Astronomy 2nd Ed. textbook, organized and bagged by lab activity number. A cross-reference sheet is included so the kit can be used with either the 1st or 2nd edition Astronomy course. Please note that this kit will not include supplies for the optional "Apologia Science Kit Activities" which are printed in brown in the daily schedule found in the notebooking journals. Apologia has made an exclusive kit available which contains supplies for the optional and textbook activities. One other notable difference between the Nature's Workshop kit and the Apologia kit is that the Nature's Workshop kit includes materials bagged by lesson where the materials in Apologia's kit are bagged by activity. There are also some variations in the types of supplies provided, most notably in that there are no food items included in the Apologia kit, while most of these are included (pre-measured) in the Nature's Workshop kit (flour, salt, oil, chocolate bar, etc.)

    If you already have the dissection tools you need, this set just includes the individual specimens: an earthworm, a frog, a perch, and a crayfish. Specimens are nice and large, and are preserved with NASCO-Guard®. Please note that all specimens are enclosed in a plastic bag within a zip-close bag, and will ship with a separate packet of care and safety instructions. All specimens are packaged in one bag, so when bag is opened, you will need to reseal it in the reclosable bag to keep the other specimens from gradually drying out. Brief or minimal exposure to air will not harm the specimens. Refrigeration is not required.

    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

    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.
