Science Shepherd Life Science (Gr. 7-9)

Intended for upper junior high or freshman year, this course will lay a foundation for further study in biology and human anatomy. The hardcover textbook is just under 300 pages in length and contains 19 chapters covering: the characteristics of life, the chemistry of life, cell membranes, cell organelles, DNA, cell reproduction, heredity, creation and evolution, scientific classification, the kingdoms of life, human anatomy and physiology, nutrition, and earth studies (ecology). Looking at both this course and Biology, some of the content is very similar, so if you complete this course, then take Biology further down the line, some of the chapters will seem like review. The course is structured very much as is described in the introductory paragraphs above, with three available components. There is no lab component to Life Science, but you might want to check out our Life Science - Instructional section to see other available activity/experiment resources for this grade level. Life Science Quest from Mark Twain Media would be an inexpensive one to consider, although the content is secular. This course's closest "relative" would be Bob Jones' Life Science course, which is pricier, but features a built-in lab component, a very professional layout, and a full-blown teacher's edition that corresponds to the textbook. This course will cover similar content, but is intended to be more student-directed. - Jess
