One-Year: It is recommended that students with an interest in science complete Life Science in one year, preferably in 7th grade. This will leave the student more time for advanced science studies in high school, which could be important if he or she ends up wanting to pursue a career in the sciences.
Two-Year: 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 of the topics being studied. 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“non-science person” and can reawaken the wonder in a student whose interest in science has been killed by boring or outdated texts.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.
