      Your little handbell players can put on a concert of their own with this easy DVD set! Each song has 3 different tracks. The first is the animated sheet music (color coded to match your bell set) with bell sounds and note names for easy identification. Once they’ve mastered that, switch to the next track which is the same animated, color-coded sheet music with the bell sounds but without the note names. When they’ve perfected that, switch to the performance tracks on Disc 2, which is the animated, color coded sheet music with backing instruments, but without bell sounds so your child’s performance can clearly be heard. Includes tracks for eight songs: "Michael Row the Boat Ashore," "Oh Susanna," "In The Good Old Summertime," "The Whole World," "The Silvery Moon," "Swing Low Sweet Chariot," and "Over There." – Laura

     The Student Textbook is available in a Christian Worldview version and a Secular version. Worth mentioning, content is marginally different (scripture references in the Christian Worldview version). Co-ops or classroom students could use the books concurrently with success.  Lessons are expected to take one week to complete, with readings from 10-25 pages, so some lessons may need additional time to complete. Textbook readings are accompanied by lab activities. Labs are designed to be homeschool friendly and use household or easily found items. A sampling of lab experiences includes: osmosis with eggs and vegetables, creating a cell model, determining pH, and making butter and yogurt. You will need internet access for the Taxonomy activity. The Textbook includes space for documenting the lab activities although students may wish to make a science notebook. The author is in the process of developing video dissection labs; contact us for availability. No microscope is required for this course.

    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.
