My children are sad to be done with your Introductory Science course. So am I! It made science so easy this year!
It is absolutely no wonder to me that you received this award. I have found your high school biology amazing.

Just wanted to drop a quick note and say how much we are enjoying the Life Science curriculum. Hands down, it is the best program out there.
Science Shepherd's Life Science is a complete middle school life science curriculum for homeschool. Written by physician and homeschool dad Scott Hardin, MD, Life Science incorporates the class textbook, lesson videos and activities/labs to foster and advance critical thinking skills and teach students how to integrate scientific facts into practice for a wide range of scientific topics.
The Life Science Textbook presents concepts in a conversational, straightforward manner. Students begin by learning the basic characteristics and chemistry of life, including light energy, and then examine cell function and genetic principals. A critical discussion of evolution and creation is introduced, followed by studies in classification, human anatomy and physiology, and earth studies. The Life Science Answer Key & Parent Companion equips parents to support their student's learning without needing a background in science themselves.
The available Life Science Video Course is an optional supplement to the textbook with over 100 video lessons and 21 hours of content. It is designed to further aid students in understanding the course material. In each lesson video, Dr. Hardin presents a comprehensive, section-by-section teaching from the Life Science Textbook, 2nd Edition. An activity/lab book is available for students who would like additional hands-on learning.
Successful completion of this course will prepare students for our high school Biology curriculum.
Recommended for middle school grades 6-8 or for 9th-10th grade as an introductory high school course. Grade/age recommendations are flexible and meant only as guidelines. The free course preview and Textbook sample can help you determine if Life Science is right for your students (see below).
