Biology is the study of LIFE; living things are beautiful, curious, and although it seems odd, they are often resilient and fragile at the same time. Studying life helps us learn about our Creator. Biology has taught me that our Lord is inventive and values beauty, and that He has a sense of humor. This year we will learn about living things: This course focus on the levels of biological organization from molecules up to and including the organism.
