Subject(s): Science/Nature Study
Owl pellet dissections, live butterfly studies, and microscope adventures are a few of the activities that await fifth- through eighth-grade students in this fun, hands-on class.
Life Science at Bluebonnet Home Scholars Collaborative uses Exploring the World of Biology by John H. Tiner, along with the accompanying materials from Memoria Press. The curriculum harmonizes with our gentle, Charlotte Mason, nature study approach while still offering substantive coverage of the subject at an age-appropriate level. Concepts covered include classifications, bacteria and protista, fungi, plant life, energy, digestion, insects, arachnids, aquatic life, reptiles, birds, and mammals.
