    This excellent (but optional) companion to the Apologia Biology 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. 604 pgs. spiral-bound

    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.

    Looking for a solidly Christian and academically complete health and nutrition course for your high schooler? You may have just found it! Although this course was not available for an independent review prior to our catalog printing, it appears this course will meet the academic and value needs of homeschool families. Beginning with an overview of anatomy and physiology, this courses scope includes senses, genetics, macro and micro nutrients, exercise and diet. Emotional issues and mental illness, human value, culture, gender roles, families, socialization, communication skills and conflict resolution skills are also covered. Reproductive anatomy and physiology are covered including accurate illustrations and descriptions. Marriage, sexuality, pregnancy and sexually transmitted diseases are discerningly explained, along with alcohol and drug abuse, depression, pornography and other topics necessary for our young people to understand for successful navigation in adulthood. This is handled gently, and respectfully, but parents should evaluate their young adults emotional and spiritual maturity prior to lessons. Over 50 projects are included in the text/student notebook which will not require a lab kit. The publisher states this will not meet a high school science lab credit.

    Unlike other Apologia courses, the Student Notebook is required for this course. Solutions are available online with course purchase. Apologia recommends the course be taken concurrently with their 9th grade Biology. Parents should discern their young person's ability and maturity. This one-year course will meet your transcript needs and prepare your student for college level courses. ~ 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.

    This course is for your visual learners who need high school credit in Chemistry. Wes Olson, the host of Biology 101, will take you on a journey through the history of chemistry along with what the study of chemistry is all about. This course is divided into nineteen 20-45 minute segments and examines the world of chemistry, the periodic table, important characters in the field of chemistry, the essentials of chemistry such as neutrons, isotopes, ions, compounds, molecules, and balancing chemical equations, an explanation of the elements – non-metals, poor metals, transition metals, rare earth & radioactive metals, and the future of chemistry. This is a 4 DVD set that has a running time of 10 hours, 55 minutes along with PDF files for the guidebook, accreditation booklet, and an extended periodic table.

    To get started with this program, you will want to print off the PDF files for the guidebook, periodic table and accreditation schedule, or take them somewhere to have them printed (the guidebook is over 120 pages). Students will be starting a chemistry notebook for this program in which they will write their research and reports. You will want to read ahead in the guidebook so you can gather and prepare needed items for the next lesson, mini-labs, and reports. The guidebook also allows the student to review information covered in the lessons along with quizzes and discussions questions. Mini-labs are demonstrated in the lessons and are performed with items from around your house or are easily accessible. I think the labs are much better and meatier than those found in Biology 101 and would do a much better job of meeting the high school credit. ~ Donna

    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.)

    The Microslide Viewer is an alternative to a microscope. It looks a lot like a microscope, but instead of viewing your own slides or prepared slides, it uses low-power magnification to allow you to view Microslides. A Microslide consists of eight 35mm images photographed from a microscope. Because they are actual photographs, they are much clearer than a normal slide's image. The microslides are stored in clear plastic holders for protection, and arrows call attention to the important features of the image. The strip fits right in the viewer so that you can pull it through to view all eight pictures. As you can see from the list below, plenty of Microslides are available. You can use it inside or outside, as it doesn't require batteries or electricity. Normal classroom light reflects off the white reflector to enable you to see the images clearly. This is a much cheaper alternative to a microscope and slides, without sacrificing image quality. Microslides come in a folder-like card which features information about each slide and includes a holder for the slide itself. A helpful amount of information is normally included for each slide image, including the name of the image, the magnification of the image, background information and points of interest. It's especially helpful when points of interest are labeled with letters, which are repeated on the slide, to make it easy to locate them. It's like getting a guided tour!  Although designed for the Microslide viewer, these slides can also be viewed on a standard microscope, with some adjustment. ~ Stephanie

    If you're looking for a good starter set for dissection, this may be the one. This set includes a 10" x 6" sturdy, plastic tray; a fitted, reusable pad; scissors; a probe; forceps; and a teacher guide. A cover that fits over the tray will help you keep your set together. This size of tray and pad is the perfect size for smaller specimens such as an earthworm, frog, clam, or grasshopper. You'll notice this kit doesn't include a scalpel, as it is assumed you have access to one. Instruments are sharp, and students should use caution in working with them. Won't it be fun working with your student when they dissect for the first time? ~ Donna

    If you're already doing Apologia's Exploring Creation with Biology, did you know that you are all set up for seamlessly tying in this course with Science Roots to learn 123 life science roots. Science Roots is set up in much the same way that Vocabulary Vine is (please see our Spelling/Vocabulary section for complete description), where the student is given a main list of roots, and they make a study card for the root, including a root definition, example words and their definitions, and the source language (Greek or Latin). The roots are arranged in the order they are encountered in Exploring Creation with Biology, so vocabulary study can be tied in chapter by chapter. The study would also work for any other biology text, but the coordination would not be as good. The author recommends this vocabulary study as a two-year plan, ideally started before Exploring Creation with Biology. In this case, the student would study 63 roots of more general science terms the first year, and 60 roots of more specifically life-science terms the second year. Detailed instructions and implementation are offered to get you up and running, along with frequently asked questions and some suggested learning games using the vocabulary roots. The appendix contains a taxonomy chart, a complete vocabulary list, and vocabulary lists for following either the one-year or two-year plan. If you're already doing Exploring Creation with Biology, why not link vocabulary study as well? - Jess

    Just to confuse the people in our warehouse, we’ve decided to add another Biology Coloring Workbook to our catalog.  Actually, we couldn’t decide between the two. This one is from The Princeton Review and covers a lot of the same material as the HarperCollins edition. They both contain textual information on one page and a coloring page on the other. They both help students to affix the concepts of biology in mind, through coloring as they learn. The other one suggests specific colors for structures.  This one makes less particular demands, often just asking you to use a “light color,” “dark color,” or “bold color,” giving the artist in you more flexibility.  On the pro side, I have found that the presentation of topics in this book corresponds much more closely to the presentation of topics in our biology books.  Basic chapters are: Introduction to Biology, Biology of the Cell, Principles of Genetics, DNA and Gene Expression, Principles of Evolution, The Origin of Life and Simple Life Forms, Biology of Plants, Biology of Animals, Human Biology, Reproduction and Development, and Principles of Ecology.  Colored pencils or felt-tip pens are recommended.  156 plates.  Contains evolutionary content.
