Life Science Daily Lesson Plans coordinates reading assignments, exercises, research papers, tests, experiments, and supply lists for Life Science.

Two lesson plan options in one! Life Science can be completed over one or two years, depending on the student’s interest and ability. This lesson plan provides a complete daily schedule for both options: a one-year lesson plan for students with an interest in science or a strong science background, as well as a two-year schedule for those without a strong science background or with little interest in science.

Life Science Daily Lesson Plans includes: 

  • one-page-per-week detailed daily lesson plans with check-boxes
  • one-year and two-year complete daily schedules
  • room for notes
  • weekly supply lists
  • cumulative supply list for the entire program
  • “Year at a Glance” chart
  • 5 days a week, 36 week schedule

One-Year Schedule: The one-year schedule is identical to the schedule included in CHC Lesson Plans for Seventh Grade.

Two-Year Schedule: Completing Life Science over two years is recommended for students who do not have a strong science background or who have little interest in science. The two-year schedule allows students more time to master difficult concepts and also leaves more time for hands-on exploration. Hands-on activities can make science more enjoyable for the diehard “non-science person” and can reawaken the wonder in a student whose interest in science has been killed by boring or outdated texts. Parents are free to supplement the experiments in the workbook with additional field trips and hands-on activities.

Q: What is the difference between the grade-level lesson plans and the single-subject lesson plans?

A: Both are complete daily lesson plans, but the grade-level lesson plans include all the core subjects in that grade level. Single-subject lesson plans are designed for families who want a daily plan for only one subject. Each single-subject lesson plan features one-page-per-week detailed daily lesson plans with check-boxes, clear weekly goals, a “Year at a Glance” chart, and room for notes.

I love the balance between structure and flexibility that your lesson plans offer. I can “tweak” them to exactly suit my child.
I am always giggling inside when I hear other moms fuss and complain about the time they have to spend “planning out” their lesson plans. I love the fact that all of that work is done for me, and all I have to do is turn the page.
