Life Science


In this unit you are going to learn about living things. Unlike years past, you will be starting not with an entire organism, but with its parts. More specifically its smallest parts, cells.  As you advance through the unit you will learn how and why scientists organize/classify organisms.  You will also learn how energy moves through the living things of our world.  While much of your focus will center around plants, there will be discussion of animals and the roles they play in out world.

In this lesson you will learn about the basic needs and basic life functions of all living things by studying the smallest of living things – cells. read more
