Lab Sciences

While planning S’ remaining high school years, I was having trouble fitting in her biology and chemistry labs, which she didn’t do even though she finished doing the two courses. I was going for her taking both the classes again with lab, but it might take too long and be too heavy of an academic load then. As I was planning out N & H’s high school plans last night (it was a long winter night last night), I suddenly came across websites that triggered a chain of actions and further triggered an alternative way to solving this problem we have.

I knew about this before, but having Barbara Shelton’s Lab Science gave me a lot of hope and a solution. I browsed through the sites first and browsed through Lab Science afterwards. The solution : S is to do some of the experiments at home and watch the virtual ones to complete her Biology lab component. For Chemistry, we might end up using Joy of Chemistry after all. With this, she won’t be bogged with all 3 lab sciences to do at the same time when she is done with the Taleem course. InshaaAllah.

It even led me to think that maybe we can do N’s Biology course the way she is doing science now but still include a lab component without doing it the traditional classroom way. Now, that’s a very joyful thought.

Of the websites that S can use to do her lab component for biology:
