Just step into one of our biology classes . . .
In Monday’s LiveLesson® session at our Ohio online school, experienced biology teacher Ms. Freeland leads a class discussion on dichotomous keys for amphibians. Then, using the clues provided by Ms. Freeland and their Biology: The Dynamics of Life text, the class identifies local habitats where they can observe the Northern Leopard frog. By Friday, students and teacher are in the field, observing local species and analyzing local water quality. Finally, on their own schedules, students are using Froguts, a virtual dissection tool, to better understand where biology, anatomy, and ecology converge.
