This homeschool Apologia biology course for high school is part of Apologia’s award-winning Exploring Creation Series. Designed to increase retention, this softcover Exploring Creation with Biology textbook, 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"
