    Power Basics Biology Set

    While searching for a science curriculum to build upon the scientific knowledge base our child acquired during the "grammar stage" of the Trivium, I discovered "Power Basics Biology" by Walch Education.

    Power Basics Biology is comprised of twenty-five units, which are broken down into the following components:

    Unit 1: Building Blocks of Living Things

    Lesson 1: Characteristics of Living Things

    Lesson 2: Cells

    Lesson 3: Nucleotides and Protein Synthesis

    Lesson 4: The Cell Cycle

    Lesson 5: Genetics and Heredity

    Lesson 6: Evolution

    Lesson 7: Organizing Life

    Unit 2: Simple Organisms

    Lesson 8: Archaebacteria and Eubacteria

    Lesson 9: Protists

    Lesson 10: Fungi

    Unit 3: The Plant Kingdom

    Lesson 11: Plant Biology

    Lesson 12: Plant Diversity

    Unit 4: The Animal Kingdom

    Lesson 13: Invertebrates

    Lesson 14: Vertebrates

    Unit 5: The Human Body

    Lesson 15: Digestion and Excretion

    Lesson 16: Respiration and Circulation

    Lesson 17: Fighting Invaders

    Lesson 18: The Skin

    Lesson 19: Bones

    Lesson 20: Muscles

    Lesson 21: Nervous and Endocrine Systems

    Lesson 22: Reproductive System

    Unit 6: Ecology

    Lesson 23: Ecosystems

    Lesson 24: Interactions

    Lesson 25: Biomes

    Each lesson in the student text follows the format of: Lesson Topic, Goal, Words to Know, Lesson, Tips, Think About It, Tips, Practice and Unit Review. The appendices at the back of the text contain a summary of important information introduced in the book.

    The student workbook contains ninety-nine activities designed to be used with the student text. Each activity helps to reinforce, extend or enrich the material in student is covering in the text. The workbook answer key is an individual resource.

    The text pack includes a pretest that covers all the material in the student text, a comprehensive test for every unit of the student text, a posttest for final testing and assessment after working through the entire student text and answer key and testing guidance for both student and teacher.

    The teacher's guide includes an overview for each unit in the student text, suggestions for extension activities, the student text glossary and appendixes, a complete answer key to all the practice activities and unit reviews in the student text, classroom record-keeping forms, and graphic organizers for student use.

    Overall our family has been pleased with Power Basics non-sectarian approach to science. We look forward to utilizing Power Basics Earth and Space in the fall.
