This is a comprehensive 12 week course that teaches the big ideas behind life science. Beginning with plant science and ending with DNA study, students will discover the science behind the barely visible parts of life and the environment, such as plant structure, plant processes, tiny insects, cell division, and genetics. Students will construct and use apparatuses such as a water cycle column, a terraqua column and a carnivorous greenhouse to investigate and identify components of different ecosystems. They will also learn proper use and care of sophisticated equipment such as the compound microscope to further observe and record data in the living world around us.
You will find 24 lessons outlined to take you from an introduction of life science on through several advanced projects complex enough to win a prize at the science fair. Includes students worksheets, instructional videos, daily lessons, and tests and quizzes… all in one complete package.
