Exploring The World of Biology

by John Hudson Tiner

160 Page paperback
Retail Price: $13.99
ISBN 0890515522

DISCOVER THE WORLD OF LIFE AS GOD CREATED IT!

The field of biology focuses on living things, from the smallest microscopic protozoa to the largest mammal. In this book you will read and explore the life of plants, insects, spiders and other arachnids, life in water, reptiles, birds, and mammals, highlighting God's amazing creation.

You will learn about the following and so much more:
• How does biological classification give each different type of plant or animal a unique name?
• In what ways are seeds spread around the world?
What food does the body use for long-term storage of energy?
• How did biologists learn how the stomach digested food?
• What plant gave George de Mestral the idea for Velcro?

For most of history, biologists used the visible appearance of plants or animals to classify them. They grouped plants or animals with similar-looking features into families. Starting in the 1990s, biologists have extracted DNA and RNA from cells as a guide to how plants or animals should be grouped. Like visual structures, these reveal the underlying design or creation.

Parent Lesson Planners

These two Parent Lesson Planners are easy-to-use with suggested daily schedules, as well as three-hole punched perforated pages so worksheets, quizzes, and tests can be easily removed before students begin their coursework.

Retail Price 12.99 each

Quick Overview:
• Weekly Lesson Schedule
• Student Worksheets
• Quizzes and Test
• Answer Key



Features: Each suggested weekly schedule has two or three easy-to-manage lessons which combine reading, worksheets, and vocabulary-building opportunities including an expanded glossary for each book. Designed to allow your student to be independent, materials in this resource are divided by section so you can remove quizzes, tests, and answer keys before beginning the coursework. As always, you are encouraged to adjust the schedule and materials needed to in order to best work within your educational program.

Workflow: Students will read the pages in their book and then complete each section of the PLP. They should be encouraged to complete as many of the activities and projects as possible as well. Tests are given at regular intervals with space to record each grade. If used with younger students, they may be given the option of only choosing activities or projects of interest to them and taking open book tests.

Lesson Scheduling: Space is given for assignment dates. There is flexibility in scheduling. For example, the parent may opt for a M–W schedule rather than a M, W, F schedule. Each week listed has five days but due to vacations the school work week may not be M–F. Adapt the days to your school schedule. As the student completes each assignment, he/she should put an “X” in the box.

Calculating Credits: This course should take between 60 to 90 hours to complete, depending on any additional hours spent on added research, essay writing assignments, or suggested lab work, if assigned. Elective courses that take 60 hours are commonly assigned ½ credit, while those 120 hours or more are assigned a full credit; core courses require over 150 hours for a credit. Based on whether this is being used as a core or elective course, make your final credits calculation based on the total hours of coursework completed in the year.

Concepts of Biology & Medicine Curriculum

1 Year Science
7th-9th Grade

A fascinating look at the world of biology combined with a study of the history of medicine for a strong foundation of important discoveries, concepts, and key connections. Learn about plants and insects, microscopic protozoa to mammals, how energy is stored, and how the stomach breaks down food. Explore medical advancements, surgeries, treatments of injuries, diseases, and more!

Course Description

This is the suggested course sequence that allows one core area of science to be studied per semester. You can change the sequence of the semesters per the needs or interests of your student; materials for each semester are independent of one another to allow flexibility.

Semester 1: Medicine

From surgery to vaccines, man has made great strides in the field of medicine. Quality of life has improved dramatically in the last few decades alone, and the future is bright. But students must not forget that God provided humans with minds and resources to bring about these advances. A biblical perspective of healing and the use of medicine provides the best foundation for treating diseases and injury. In Exploring the History of Medicine, author John Hudson Tiner reveals the spectacular discoveries that started with men and women who used their abilities to better mankind and give glory to God. The fascinating history of medicine comes alive in this book, providing students with a healthy dose of facts, mini-biographies, and vintage illustrations.

Semester 2: Biology

The field of biology focuses on living things, from the smallest microscopic protozoa to the largest mammal. In this book you will read and explore the life of plants, insects, spiders and other arachnids, life in water, reptiles, birds, and mammals, highlighting God’s amazing creation. You will learn about biological classification, how seeds spread around the world, long-term storage of energy, how biologists learned how the stomach digested food, the plant that gave George de Mestral the idea of Velcro, and so much more. For most of history, biologists used the visible appearance of plants or animals to classify them. They grouped plants or animals with similar-looking features into families. Starting in the 1990’s, biologists have extracted DNA and RNA from cells as a guide to how plants or animals should be grouped. Like visual structures, these reveal the underlying design of creation. Exploring the World of Biology is a fascinating look at life-from the smallest proteins and spores, to the complex life systems of humans and animals.

Suggested optional science labs are made available with this course. These are available from a variety of companies, and are only suggestions, not requirements, as they are not included in the daily schedule.

Creation Biology
Creation Biology is the study of biological processes and organisms, while operating under the assumption that God created life on Earth. The discipline is premised on the idea that God created a finite number of discrete created kinds or baramin. While these forms of life have the ability to vary and even undergo speciation, they cannot arise spontaneously from non-life, cannot interbreed outside of their kind, and cannot increase in genetic complexity.
