This course will be using Apologia Biology by Dr. Jay Wile. The focus will be a 2 hour lab/class time including review of the material covered that week. Sixteen modules cover cell life, genetics, creation science as an alternative to evolution, ecology, insects, plants, reptiles, mammals, and more. Dissections are required and are included in the lab kit that is purchased individually by the family. This course is worth 1.5 credits due to the extensive lab requirements.
