Life Science - Kolbe Academy

Life Science

This course covers topics in life science at a middle school level, including: cells and living organisms, animals and plants, heredity and classification, and the environment.

In general, this course is meant to be a survey of several topics in a Life Science course.  As such, it does not have the necessary depth for a high school level Life Science course.  High school credit, therefore, is not available for this middle school Life Science course.  This course prepares students well for high school biology.  In general, this course should be completed at some point during the middle school years whether that be in 6th, 7th, or even 8th grade.  No particular math skills are needed for successful completion of this course.

Students should expect to have daily reading, at least one (or more) weekly written assignments, required participation, and exams as assigned by their instructor.  All requirements are assigned and graded by the instructor.
