This updated homeschool-friendly high school biology course, Exploring Creation with Biology, is written by Dr. Jay Wile & Marilyn Durnell and published by Apologia. The authors emphasize God's creative design that is evident in living things. The book begins by describing the science of biology and giving an overview of the classification of living things. Separate modules provide background on chemistry, cells, cellular reproduction, genetics, ecosystems, and Creation and Evolution. The five major kingdoms are studied individually with one module each for Monera, Protista, and Fungi, four modules devoted to animals, and one on plants.
The 37 experiments include dissections of a frog, perch, crayfish, and worm. Although a microscope is needed for over 12 labs, the author gives you the option of excluding these labs if the cost is beyond your family budget. This book does not have a section on human anatomy, so if you won't be doing Apologia's Human Body course later, consider supplementing it with a human anatomy study from our Human Body & Anatomy section. Text is hardcover, tests & solutions manual is softcover. 2nd edition.
Be sure to order our Microscope Lab Kit and Dissection Lab Kit, which contain the materials to do the lab activities. You may also want to order the Companion CD-ROM that includes multimedia add-ons like pronunciations, video clips, and animations.
