BJU Press Science Curriculum Grades 7-12

Print Friendly

Compared to Apologia’s Exploring Creation series, BJU Press homeschool science curriculum is the more traditional approach (like when I went to school in the 60s and 70s). Like Apologia, it is also a Christian curriculum with a creation science view.

This is a solid academic science curriculum that has been used by homeschoolers with success for over 20 years.

We’ve used everything in the BJU Press science curriculum but the physics (nothing against the physics–they didn’t take it.) Our older children liked these science courses and did well in science on the college level (even though it wasn’t their major interest.)

Bob Jones homeschool  science also has more student activities which include various lab experiments and different types of activities to reinforce learning (Q&A, matching, fill in the blanks, etc.). Those activities are a great way to learn thee types of questions that homeschoolers will see in college courses.

Biology Student Lab Manual 4th Edition

Publisher: BJU Press

Item #bju268094

ISBN-13: 9781606820155

In this new edition, BJU Press has separated the lab manual from the student text. We think it is better this way for families who have more than one student who will use the text.

Each of the lessons involves a laboratory based activity or experiment. Biology Student Lab Manual is a very thorough lab book that coordinates with the Biology  Text. Necessary supplies such as a microscope, slides, specimens, and necessary equipment are listed at the beginning of each lesson.

Short of setting up a fully functional biology lab in your home, what is a homeschool family to do? Alternatives include:

  • Find a local homeschool coop or Christian camp that offers biology labs. For example, our local Camp Susque has a science lab and offers biology labs to homeschool students in their off season.
  • Search online at Google Images images of microscopic slides or at YouTube for videos of specific biology experiments. I quickly found many choices for penicillum slides and for frog dissection videos. You could give your student the responsibility of finding these. It would be a good experience to view the different choices and make the best selection. Of course, parental supervision of your student’s internet activities is strongly advised.

The Biology Dissection Kit “contains everything needed for an individual to begin lab work and is completely compatible with the Life Science and Biology programs. It includes an earthworm, crayfish, a perch, and a grass frog preserved in an odorless and nontoxic form and vacuum-packed moist in a plastic bag. It also includes seven dissecting tools in a vinyl case, a magnifying glass, an econopan, a student activity book (bju033761), a packet of tissues, self sealing storage bags, dissection pins, and towelettes.

I think you could use this kit for two students at a time. We always had a lab partner when I was in high school.
