MS Life Science Books (Grade 6 - Grade 8)
Life Science can be defined as the study of all living organisms; their organization, the respective life processes, and the relationships between life forms and the requisite habitats and environments that these life forms exist and thrive in.
These titles allow students to explore the characteristics of living things beginning with life cycles, stimuli and behavior, and how organisms maintain homeostasis (defined as the state of equilibrium within a cell).
Readers will learn the structure of cells, the purpose and role of the cell – i.e. cell theory, along with understanding the difference between prokaryotic and eukaryotic cells. An essential aspect of biology is covered in life science, involving the cell’s basic functions of controlling photosynthesis, respiration and homeostasis.
Genetics: Students learn how organisms pass on their genes to their offspring; reproduction, selective breeding, meiosis, mitosis, phenotypes, genotypes and genetic disorders are covered in this collection.
Evolution: Explore the theory of evolution, diversity of life, natural selection, adaptation, mutations, extinction and extinction level events.
Classification: Students learn how to classify animals and organisms.
Organs and Organ Systems: With these titles students will be able to easily distinguish between cells, tissues, organs, and organ systems in the Human Body. These titles cover different human body systems including the integumentary, skeletal and muscular, respiratory, digestive, excretory, nervous, endocrine, reproductive, disease and the immune system.
Human Health: These titles teach students the factors impacting human health and the right way to stay healthy.
Plants: These books cover plant structures, plant life functions, and plants reproductive systems.
