This inquiry- and lab-based course is designed to support modern science curriculum and teaching practices. Content topics include cells, the life cycle, genes, evolution, energy flow in ecosystems, and the interdependence of ecosystems.Lab materials note: All hands-on labs employ relatively common household materials. In some circumstances, items may need to be purchased or a virtual lab may be substituted. Please refer to the Teacher’s Guide for details on lab materials.
