New Biology Dissection Videos

Ta-daa! We’ve just finished creating 13 new biology dissection videos! Here’s the list of the 13 new videos that are included in the Biology section of our curriculum:

Dissection in biology provides a hands-on education above and beyond reading a textbook. By seeing, touching and exploring different organs, muscles and tissues inside an animal and seeing how they work together allows you to really understand your own body and appreciate the amazing world around us.

And it’s not hard – you can dissect a chicken egg right at home with our simple step-by-step videos! Many doctors, surgeons and veterinarians report that their first fascination with the body started with a biology dissection class.

    There really isn’t a lot of memorization in the program, because that’s not what science is. Science is all about asking questions and getting back answers. For things like the periodic table, kids will become familiar with what it is and how to use it rather than memorizing which letters go where (which is rather meaningless!) because they’re doing experiments that really make sense of it. They will better understand why the elements are arranged in certain ways because they are experiencing it for themselves, like how inert gases are grouped at one end of the table, and how hydrogen is really different and should be in its own group all by itself (which is usually isn’t indicated that way on typical periodic charts), or how the alkali metals (Li, Na, K, Rb, Cs…) are increasingly reactive with water as you move further down the table.

    The science laws they will discover and also will make sense (For example, how higher pressure always pushes when they do their experiments in flight and aerodynamics, because if it were otherwise, planes couldn’t get off the ground.) It’s based on observation, asking questions, and learning how to think.

    Hope this helps!

    As a homeschooling mom, I am wondering what science facts I should be having our girls memorize. Any suggestions? Should they be memorizing the periodic table, for example? Or other laws of science? Does the program provide any guidance for suggested facts to learn and maintain?

Have a question?
