What Will You Learn?

Biology for Kids will take your child on a fun and engaging exploration into the world of living things! They will investigate many types of animals (including humans), as well as different species of plants and trees, learning all about the different things they require to grow and thrive.

Their journey will take them on an adventure into what different living things need to survive, in terms of their food and nutrition, how they choose to build their homes, and clever tactics they have developed to fend off predatory threats. They will study different animal groups in-depth, such as mammals, birds, reptiles, amphibians, and minibeasts, as well as explore how plants and trees survive and thrive in the world. What’s more, they will have a series of interesting activities to complete, including some hands-on experiments to tackle at home, helping them to further their understanding!

Children aged 6 and up will be introduced to the Biology for Kids Course by learning about the seven characteristics that all living things have in common and the different ways in which they can be categorised. Your child will also discover the different life cycles of plants and animals and their varying nutritional needs.

They’ll visit the different homes and habitats of various creatures, learn how animals and plants have adapted to survive and thrive in their environments, and discover the techniques different animals use to communicate.

Your child will learn about how plants and trees grow, the different parts of a flower, and how they reproduce and make their food. They’ll explore the different characteristics of birds, reptiles and amphibians – understanding how these help them to survive in their habitats. They’ll also discover minibeasts, such as butterflies, ladybirds and bees, as well as arachnids, and even microorganisms.

They’ll also learn about the characteristics of mammals and how humans differ from other animals – including a look at some elements of human anatomy.

By studying this course, your child will:

  • Learn how living things are categorised and how their life cycles differ
  • Discover how different plants and animals have adapted to their environments
  • Understand the nutritional needs of different plants and animals
  • Gain a deeper understanding of birds, reptiles, amphibians, minibeasts, and microorganisms

Brilliant set of courses. I recently completed an Egyptology course with them and was so impressed I enrolled into Greek mythology diploma. (I'm doing a masters in classical studies so the Greek mythology course will help). I'd recommend them to anyone who wants to learn new things at their own pace
