Science Shepherd Life Science was recognized as a 2019 Teach Them Diligently Homeschool Family Favorite for middle school science. You can be confident that our Life Science curriculum for homeschool will provide an excellent educational experience to your student.
Science Shepherd Life Science is a complete middle school life science curriculum, or could be used as a high school introductory biology curriculum for students who need to brush up on science before taking on a full-scale high school biology course. The course is designed to foster and advance critical thinking skills and teach how to integrate scientific facts into practice for a wide range of scientific topics. 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. Successful completion of this course will prepare students for our high school Biology curriculum. Life Science is written by physician and homeschool dad, Scott Hardin, MD.
The available Life Science Video Course is an optional supplement to the textbook and is designed to further aid students in understanding the material. In each video lesson, Dr. Hardin presents a comprehensive, section-by-section teaching from the Life Science Textbook, 2nd Edition, following the recommended reading schedule. The Life Science Video Course features over 100 lessons and 21 hours.
