Biology Honors


In this honors course, students will expand their understanding of God’s complex creation. Students will classify systems to survey living organisms. They will participate in lab activities and simulations to examine the structures and processes in living organisms. By applying concepts in statistics and probability, students will explore the mechanisms for inheritance and variation. Students will also analyze interactions within ecosystems and the effects of human activity. This course has a lab component.

Special Notes:

This course is a part of the honors track, and intentional focus will be on the required knowledge and critical thinking and analytical skills to prepare a student to be successful in future upperlevel and Advanced Placement® (AP®) courses.


“In the beginning, God created the heavens and the earth.” Genesis 1:1

Ever since humans were first created, we have been exploring the wonders of Creation around us. As a child, you were probably curious about all the plants and animals around you. You were acting as a biologist without even knowing it! In this Biology course, we will take a closer look at God’s Creation and discover intricate details about the plant and animal kingdoms.

Just as Adam named all the organisms in the Garden of Eden, we will also be learning how biologists today classify and name all the organisms in Creation.

Join me as we embark on an in-depth adventure into exploring the wonders of God’s Creation!

If there are books and materials for this course, they can be purchased from our Online Bookstore.

There were videos that helped me better understand the topic of the week and the lesson.
