Zoology-Science for 2009-2010

Saturday, March 21, 2009

Spring is the time I plan for what we will be doing next year. I will be typing up my plans and creating links for them in the sidebar. For science I work off a rotation between the following subjects: one year we do chemistry, the next physics, the next biology. The coming school year we are scheduled to do biology, but I thought I would narrow it down a bit to zoology. We will be using several sources for our year in zoology....Lyrical Life Science Volume 1-We will use only the first part of this book.

Lyrical Life Science-Volume 2A few lapbooks from In the Hands of a Child: Animal Classification, Invertebrates, Ecosystems, one of the habitat lapbooksAnimal lapbooks from Homeschool Share. This is where we will get the majority of our lapbook materials. All free!!!!
