Homeschoolers who enroll in our high school Biology course will gain a basic understanding of living organisms.  We will take a look at the origin of life, the cellular makeup of living things, microbiologic creatures such as bacteria and viruses, algae and protozoa, fungi and molds.  Throughout the year, students will move on to more complex organisms such as plant life, invertebrates, vertebrates, and eventually humans. Homeschool students will become familiar with classifying different living organisms in categories like family and species. Towards the end of the year, we will focus on the different bodily systems that make up our physical beings.
