April Showers....

Well, we all know what they bring! But if you would like to get your kids ready for learning about next month's flowers, there are a few great (and CHEAP) unit studies over at The Simple Homeschool that will get them all geared up. If you didn't get these fabulous units free in The Simple Zine, then why not sign up? Next month we'll take a look at what April Showers bring and have all sorts of fun with flowers and plants. There are some great webpages on this topic already up, but it is so much easier to have a pdf file that you can print out and hand over on those crazy days, isn't it? So if you're pressed for time and need a day - go grab some 99 cent unit studies over at The Simple Homeschool!

New Anatomy & Physiology Course from Simple Schooling

I have FINALLY finished Human Anatomy and Physiology I and I have no idea why this particular course took me so long. I was sick twice, so maybe that had something to do with it. Plus I have been very busy obsessing over my hatching eggs and incubators that I tend to get side tracked over at the BackyardChickens forum. And really if you think about it - that makes perfect sense. Watching duck and goose eggs develop and writing about anatomy and physiology - sorta all related in a convoluted way, right?

Right! Anyway, this course is fabulous! It has over 400 pages! And for the same low price of $25 you get the 250 page student textbook/workbook, a 110 page parent guide, and a 50 page exam booklet. Can't beat that. Seriously, you can't. No one else offers such a comprehensive package for the price. As the title of this course indicates, it has both anatomy and physiology, emphasis on physiology. So if you've got a science oriented kid and think they could use another class in high school, give us a try. This course is written in the same conversational tone of all other Simple Schooling products which enables your teen to progress in a self directed manner. A complete one semester science course, A&P I includes:

  • Cell Biology Review

  • The Integumentary System

  • The Skeletal System

  • The Endocrine System

  • The Nervous System

Second Semester A&P II will be out May 15 and will contain:

  • The Muscular System

  • The Cardiovascular System

  • The Respiratory System

  • The Digestive System

  • The Renal System

  • The Immune System

  • The Reproductive System
So if you're looking for a complete year of upper level biology before college - Give Simple Schooling Anatomy and Physiology a try!

You won't be disappointed!
