"Life Sciences" is the study of the living wonders that surround us every day; your students will learn to appreciate the wonders of nature, as well as its Creator, in BJU Press' 7th Grade Life Science Curriculum.
The basics of science are covered in the student text, including classification of species, cell structure, relationships among organisms, genetics, microbiology, botany, zoology, and ecology, as well as more complicated topics such as evolution and creation, reproduction, and man's relationship to the environment. Illustrations help to reinforce abstract concepts through diagrams, cartoons, charts, and more. Special features in the chapter include "Facets of life science," "career feature," "thinking critically," and "connections in science," which connect inter-disciplinary or intra-disciplinary topics and highlight real-life issues or questions to think about. Section reviews are incorporated throughout the chapter with quizzes at the end of each chapter help to ensure mastery. Appendices on cl assification, word roots, the metric system, and and an expanded glossary and index are included.
This 4th Edition has been revised and rewritten to better fit this grade level with "Connections in Science" and a "contrasting worldviews" approach. New chapter review sections include bullet point summaries, question categories, and standardized test prep questions. This new edition is also now a single volume book.
