Biology 

Age: Rising 8 – 12

1:00 p.m. – 5:00 p.m.

Duration: 6 weeks

Biology is a one-credit course that begins with the overall process of science. It covers the main characteristics shared by every living thing and provides an introduction to the big ideas uniting the study of biology. Students study the chemistry of molecules important to life and use that foundation to study cells, organisms, and the interdependence of living things and their environments. They relate cell structures and parts to life-sustaining functions, such as respiration and photosynthesis. Students learn about DNA, genetics, and inheritance; study evolution and the evidence behind it; and study life forms, from simple bacteria to complex plants and animals. Students are given an opportunity to identify core concepts through the reading material and then apply that knowledge in review activities.
