Guest Hollow’s Biology Curriculum
brings science to life.
We’ve researched labs and activities from a variety of sources for a variety of budgets, created a comprehensive year-long daily/weekly schedule, put together workbook pages to help students better learn and retain the textbook material, researched and added in some terrific links, videos and other resources and added a list of supplementary reading to expand on the textbook concepts via “living books“.
There aren’t many options for a solid *Christian high school biology curriculum that is low cost and has lots of options, extras and engaging material to help expand concepts. That’s why we created Guest Hollow’s High School Biology by editing the well-known and esteemed CK-12 Biology Curriculum (thanks to a Creative Commons license CC BY-NC 4.0)!
We love science and want to give homeschooling families more options that are a bit different from the “norm”. Students and families love our curriculums! Try us, and you’ll see why!
*Secular families can use our schedule with the original CK-12 biology book. Click here for more info.
