Core Life Science Lessons – (No labs or stations)


The following is included in the Core Life Science Lessons Bundle

LIFE SCIENCE INTERACTIVE NOTEBOOK lessons are aligned to the NEXT GENERATION SCIENCE STANDARDS (NGSS - see below) and will be sure to increase your students engagement in note taking and processing. Each chapter includes notes, activities with actual pictures and mini-quizzes to help check for understanding.
