    Default Searching for 9th grade secular science

    Hi guys, I am looking for secular 9th grade science curriculum ideas. I might have found something but am looking for others that may have done the same. I have been following a blog here https://homeschoolsciencegeek.wordpress.com. The author teaches science to homeschool students and then writes about what they did. She includes book chapters, videos and any other activities. It looks pretty neat but I also believe author has a PhD in physics. Has anyone else tried replicating what she does or have other suggestions for secular science curriculum?

    I have looked at HomeschoolScienceGeek's site for ideas when my kids were in high school. I also looked at something similar over at Quarks and Quirks.

    The following are other links I used. They are not all laid out as the prior two, but have some useful parts.

    Concept maps for biology


    Biology Teaching and Learning Resources

    If/when you buy supplies, I suggest borrowing if possible, or Home Science Tools. Things like slides, microscope, etc you can resell later to other homeschoolers.

    REAL Science Odyssey Biology level 2 is normally used for middle school, but she has a blog post with suggestions on how to modify it so that it is suitable for early highschool.

    Thanks for this Carol. I had never seen the Quirks and Quarks site before. I bet I could pick and choose from both of these and make a nice 9th grade biology. I liked the flexibility from the Homeschool Science Geek site of making it a general or honors level course too. I will look at the other links provided as equipment will definitely be a major consideration.
