This homeschool Apologia biology course for high school is part of Apologia’s award-winning Exploring Creation Series. Designed to increase retention, Exploring Creation with Biology, 3rd edition, emphasizes vocabulary and experiments, and covers everything your children need to be fully prepared for a college-level biology course

There are 3 types of (updated) experiments inside:

  1. Microscope Labs (require a microscope, as well as prepared & blank slides)
  2. Dissection Labs (require additional dissection kit with specimens)
  3. Household Labs (only use common household items)

You'll also find “creation connection” and “think about this” call-outs in this Apologia biology course; these sections have been designed to help students see connections to a Creator, and they provide students with another way of thinking about the concepts they're learning about. 

From Apologia's Website:

"In this course, your student will:

  • See the evidence of God’s creation as they learn scientific principles
  • Conduct experiments in a methodical way that prepares them not just for future classes, but for life
  • Take personal notes, conduct and record experiments, and be able to interpret results
  • Develop skills to think through and beyond the textbook materials, and be able to create their own experiments from concept to interpretation of results
  • Further develop skills in their own learning style and how they best process, record, study, and retain information learned
  • Be able to hold a logical discussion on God and science based on facts and beliefs"

In the 3rd Edition, your student will find:

  • Updated content to present the most current science
  • A reorganized structure of the information, which helps students logically progress through their biological studies
  • Experiments which have been updated or replaced, and the addition of new experiments
  • New illustrations and infographics that help students break down and visually digest difficult concepts, in addition to updated images and illustrations
  • New content, including a new section on photosynthesis and a new section on diseases.
  • An overhaul of the section on genetics, including more information on DNA"
