Biology-need secular resources middle school


Recommended Posts

Ds is very interested in studying biology, especially marine biology--I piece our science together and we have either already used the recs in TWTM for logic stage biology or I don't think they will work for us. I need lots of ideas for books, websites, dvds, experiments, really anything.

Have you looked at The Way Life Works by Michael Hoagland? I really like this for biology. I got the hardback version used for a fairly good price. My kids like the illustrations, and it has helped give me the ability to explain things in more depth. I plan to use it as a spine next time we do biology. It was recommended in LCC for middle school science.



for dvs - Blue Planet is the best. I love those videos oceans and things.

Last year we did Life Science for 6th, with CPO and The Way Life Works. We also read a lot of supplemental books - I put them in another post recently. I have to go out in a couple of minutes, but if a search doesn't find it for you by the time I get back, I'll try to find the list...


I'd love to see your list!

Coming a little late to this thread ...


I've no first hand knowledge of this, but it looks like an intriguing study:

You might find some good resources in these past threads some of which were on the highschool board.

Any suggestions for living books for Biology?
