In our homeschool Science in 2013-14 we used Christian Kids Explore Biology. I liked the concept of the book when we bought it but I LOVE the curriculum even more now that we are actually using it. Each lesson is written in a short, easy to understand format and includes hands on activities, diagrams, worksheets, coloring sheets, and more.


The other science curriculum we have used and really loves is Exploring Creation by Apologia. The books are filled with colorful, beautiful pictures and easy to understand experiments and simple science experiment suggestions to go with everything. It is an easy curriculum to pick up and use as a creative read aloud, hands on science projects, or a mixture of everything.

These biology vocabulary flashcards work great with Christian Kids Explore, Exploring Creation, Classical Conversations, or any other science curriculum of your choosing.

Although there are lots of reproducibles included in the textbook (including verses, coloring sheets, diagrams, worksheets, word searches, and more), I wanted vocabulary flashcards to use with my lower elementary students. For older elementary age students, you may just want to print the vocabulary cards and have them fill in the definitions as you go along to make it a more kinesthetic learning experience. But for younger students (like my Kindergarten & 2nd grader) that is a lot of writing of really big words.

I suggest printing on cardstock for durability and printing front & back with “top short edge” flip option. It includes 48 key words per unit:
