Apologia Biology Labs Module 1


What do you do when your high schooler comes to you and asks, "Mom, can we do Biology from now until the end of summer so I can do Chemistry in the fall?"

You do it!

 

Admittedly, Biology was not my favorite subject when I was a high schooler.  But, being a homeschool mom, we do what's best for our children.  And in this case, I revisit Biology with my second born!

 

Choosing Apologia Biology as our curriculum, we dive in!

The lab for Module 1 is pretty straight forward, consisting of how to use a Biological Key and an introduction to the microscope.

After going over the parts of the microscope, my student learns how to use it and make a wet-mount slide.

On to the Biological Key exercise.  My student really enjoyed this challenge!

 

Though not necessary to complete this course, the Biology Notebook from Apologia greatly helps me as a parent/teacher plus contains additional information that the text labs do not.  (Plus it's harder for the student to misplace!)
