Science Shepherd Biology is a comprehensive and integrated college-prep homeschool biology curriculum for high school, incorporating textbook, optional daily video-based lessons, lab manual, supplementary parent/teacher informational guide book, enhanced study question DVD and test materials. Written by physician and homeschool dad Scott Hardin, MD, Science Shepherd Biology was designed for independent study with advanced but easy-to-learn presentation. However, with the supplementary teacher information, parents can be involved in their student(s) learning, if they choose.
The available Biology Video Course offers over 42 hours of comprehensive teaching. In each lesson, Dr. Hardin presents an in-depth review of each section of the Biology Textbook, 3rd Edition, with additional supplemental material, to help students fully understand the subject. Plus, the included lab videos walk students through the process and expected results of 19 experiments, so they can be confident they are accurately performing each lab. The Biology Lab Videos are also available as a separate purchase, and can be used as a standalone lab credit.
Biology Lab Kits are available from Rainbow Resource Center at the links below, or you can use the Biology Lab supply list to create your own kit. Lab Kits do not include a Lab Manual, Lab Videos or microscope.
