    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.)

    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

    Travel with Ms. Frizzle and her class through the land of microscopy with this lab kit. This kit includes the things that young researchers need to explore the world of tiny things – microscope, blank slides, cover slips, tweezers, collecting vial, 20 colorful experiment and instruction cards, prepared slides of fungi and algae, and a data notebook for recording your own scientific observations all packaged in a cool Magic School Bus-shaped box. The microscope operates on 2 AA batteries (not included) and is made of plastic with 100, 300 and 600x magnification. Although that sounds powerful, this is still a toy and doesn't give the quality and clarity of higher priced microscopes. I spent some time looking at the prepared slides and had some difficulty with the viewing on 600x but got a pretty good view with the 100 and 300x settings. Overall this is a good starter set for beginning to explore with Ms. Frizzle. - Donna

    If your family is like mine - captivated by the real science behind the plethora of television crime shows, then this book may be perfect for you. This resource brings the scientific study of crime scenes into the home and school arena. While the labs are designed for groups, you can easily do these as a family (or in a co-op) if you are willing to invest the time to set the crime scene stage.

    Divided into 4 sections, each covers a different branch of science. The first section, Critical Thinking, lays the foundational principles of science and reinforces observation skills (handwriting and typewriting comparisons,) experimentation (shoe impressions) and logical thinking. Physical Science employs techniques such as analysis of unknown mixtures, fibers and fingerprinting. In the Life Science section, students concentrate on evidence left at crime sciences by living things and study the principles of inheritance, DNA, blood typing, dental identification, and forensic etymology. The final section, Earth Science, offers lessons on mummification, skeletal evidence, and archaeological evidence. All in all, this supplemental resource book offers 68 lessons and labs (most lessons have one accompanying lab, some have two) designed to bring a fresh enthusiasm on the importance of "whys" of learning science. Household items and additional lab equipment required (microscope, glass slides and cover slips, test tubes, pH paper, beakers, filter paper, Plaster of Paris, and various chemicals. Information to order an Edvotek DNA Kit is included for the DNA labs).

    A brief personal note, I used the previous edition of this book with my teens and they still talk about the science they learned. Real life science learned and remembered makes for one happy homeschool mom! We performed the majority of activities in the book, making changes to the readily available supplies, some of the experiments we discussed and did not perform due to the difficulty of obtaining materials. Noteworthy:while the mock crimes are presented in a discerning manner, they do represent a wide variety of fact- based crimes. As a family, you may elect to skip over some of the lessons within the pages. Reproducible for classroom use. sc ~Deanne

    What a great starter scope! Many of the features you'll find on a more expensive scope are now available for the young scientist. This battery operated (3 AA batteries are not included) microscope has:

    • • rotatable nosepiece with 4X, 10X, and 40X objectives
    • • 10X widefield eyepiece on an inclined head
    • • 6 hole disc diaphragm
    • • real optical glass lenses
    • • 3 ½" x 3 ½" stage with spring mounted stage clips
    • • coarse focus knob
    • • dual LED lights
    • • powder-coated metal construction with sturdy plastic base

    View slides using the light below and solid objects with the upper light. You won't find this feature on any of our other microscopes. See slides up to a 400X magnification and solid objects up to 100X magnification. Look closely and you'll be able to see Abraham Lincoln sitting in his memorial on the back of the penny!

    This microscope comes with a nice accessory set which includes: 5 blank slides, 4 prepared slides, 1 concaved slide, slide labels, 10 cover glasses, pipette, forceps, lens paper, small plastic test tube, small plastic Petri dish, straight teasing needle, and red and blue dye. A 10-page user's manual explains how to prepare slides, operate the microscope, and offers suggestions for observation.

    The LED lights burn longer and cooler than incandescent lighting, so no chance of little fingers getting hot. An automatic stage stop is helpful in keeping the objectives from touching the slides; however, it doesn't work well with the 40X objective. This objective is longer and the stage doesn't stop soon enough before putting pressure on the slide. You'll also notice that there is no 'fine focus' knob. I thought that would be a problem getting things in focus, but really had very little difficulty. I looked at several slides and objects on all of the settings of this microscope. I'm really impressed with the features offered for such a low price. ~ Donna

    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.
