Homeschool Curriculum Pack: Apologia Biology

Printer Friendly Version

Publisher: Ward's Natural Science

List Price: $75.00

Ages: 15-18 Years

Reviewed By: Deborah Deggs Cariker

In business for more than 150 years, Ward's Natural Science of Rochester, New York, lends to the homeschool world its expertise in teaching science by packing into one sturdy box the usually hard-to-find dissection items parents will need for teaching biology using Dr. Jay Wile's Apologia curriculum. The Homeschool Curriculum Pack: Apologia Biology makes a 2005 debut along with other packs for well-known homeschool science curricula as the company reaches out to parent-educators in this ever-growing market.

In preparing to teach Apologia Biology, parents will need to find a variety of items not always handy at your local supermarket or discount store: frog, fish, crayfish, and earthworm to dissect; amoeba, paramecium, chick embryo slides, methylene blue chloride, scalpel, probe, slides and glass covers, and more. They're here. The kit also contains a complete dissection kit. The kit does not contain the 400X microscope required for the course - and there are 78 microscopes from which to choose in the Ward's on-line catalog. You also may want to provide gloves and safety goggles for your students.

The strength of Ward's Natural Science Homeschool Curriculum Pack: Apologia Biology is that the company lightens the load on parent-teachers because they do the leg work, find the specified items, pack them in one box, and sell it at one price. Simple. Convenient. You'll need to know what you're ordering, however, because the box contains no list of components.
