Description

The Biology for the Logic Stage Teacher Guide is a manual that provides 36 weeks of instruction (6 units) covering topics such as ecology, plants, invertebrates, vertebrates, animals, and the human body. It is designed to help middle school teachers explore biological topics with their students using a classical science education methodology. The manual contains hands-on inquiry, information writing, and a science project to engage students.



This teacher's guide includes weekly student assignments for experiments, sketching, vocabulary, memory work, and writing, with pre-labeled sketches and teacher-led discussion questions. Also included are unit tests and a year-end test (with answer keys) along with information for each experiment, including explanations of the expected results. Two schedules are also provided: a 2-day-per-week option and a 5-day-per-week option.



The Biology for the Logic Stage student guide is sold separately and is necessary to complete the program as it contains the student forms. The curriculum includes five books used as reference works, with the first two used as spine texts: The Usborne Science Encyclopedia, The Kingfisher Science Encyclopedia, Encyclopedia of Nature by DK, The Usborne Illustrated Dictionary of Science, and Human Body (DK Eyewitness Book).
