Unit 17: Life Science 2


Living things are all around us. Sometimes the living things we notice the most are animals, whether its birds chirping in the trees, our pet dogs, or even our fellow human beings. However, most living things are not animals. In these sections, we will learn about bacteria, archae, fungi, protists, and plants. These organisms are extremely important to learn about. They make life possible for animals, including human beings, by keeping soil ready for growth, and providing oxygen for our survival. No life would be possible without these remarkable organisms.

One of the best things you can do with this unit is to take notes in a journal as you go. Snap photos of yourself doing the actual experiment and paste them in alongside your drawing of your experimental setup. This is the same way scientists document their own findings, and it’s a lot of fun to look back at the splattered pages later on and see how far you’ve come. I always jot down my questions that didn’t get answered with the experiment across the top of the page so I can research it more later. Are you ready to get started?
