Apologia Biology Labs Module 1
What do you do when your high schooler comes to you and asks, “Mom, can we do Biology from now until the end of summer so I can do Chemistry in the fall?”
You do it!
Admittedly, Biology was not my favorite subject when I was a high schooler. But, being a homeschool mom, we do what’s best for our children. And in this case, I revisit Biology with my second born!
Choosing Apologia Biology as our curriculum, we dive in!
The lab for Module 1 is pretty straight forward, consisting of how to use a Biological Key and an introduction to the microscope.
After going over the parts of the microscope, my student learns how to use it and make a wet-mount slide.
On to the Biological Key exercise. My student really enjoyed this challenge!
Though not necessary to complete this course, the Biology Notebook from Apologia greatly helps me as a parent/teacher plus contains additional information that the text labs do not. (Plus it’s harder for the student to misplace!)
Catch us next time as we look at Bacteria in Module 2!
