Experience Biology equips students with foundational concepts in biology. Our elementary level course is for families with students 6-11 years old.
Since the dawn of time man has been fascinated by the study of living things. The study of biology began with the discipline of natural history. Naturalists study the world through observation—focusing on learning about life through the use of the 5 senses.
Experience Biology Level A gives your students a taste of what naturalists have been doing for centuries. They’ll have the opportunity to explore the world of plants, animals, fungi, bacteria, and protists through observation—and be amazed at their discoveries.
This preview includes the 1st and 21st lessons of Experience Biology Level A so you know exactly what to expect from our courses. You can also download the accompanying pages from the Student Adventure Guide for these lessons.
Lesson 1: What is Life?
Scientists love the idea of searching for life on other planets, but we haven’t even finished finding all the life on our own planet—not even close! There are millions of different kinds of living things on Earth, and probably millions more we have yet to discover.
Lesson 1: Memory Video
This is the “memory video” for Lesson 1. All main video lessons are complemented with a short memory video, telling students facts they should memorize before the next lesson.
Lesson 21: Meddlesome Mollusks
From the tiny Borneo snail to the enormous Colossal Squid, mollusks come in all shapes and sizes, but with their powerful muscular feet and beautiful shells, they are the largest group of aquatic animals on earth!
