Science Sunday ~ High School Biology Edition


Although this is not a typical "Science Sunday" type of post, I will be linking up at Adventures in Mommydom anyway, just in case someone reading through her link ups has a question about how to do a literature based High School Biology course. You never know who might be searching. Also, if you would like some great Science projects and ideas for younger kids, go there now! There is always some great stuff!

We skipped Science this week and will be doing a double dose next week. But, I have been working diligently on preparing Dawson's first week of High School Biology using The Way Life Works as our main text. You can go here to read why we have decided to change our curriculum, and here to read why we have chosen The Way Life Works. I found a couple of great resources this weekend, others who have forged the path before me. I am thankful for what I have found. I am also very excited about this new path we are taking!



Week 1 ~ Introduction
Well, he ought to have a pretty good concept of cells by the time he spends this week looking at them, experimenting with them, drawing them, reading about them, and talking about them.

I have extremely high hopes for this new way we will be studying Biology.

We all know that in this crazy world of homeschooling, we need all the (adult) support we can get. Please leave a comment if you so wish!
