This supplemental curriculum begins with an overview of life science. Subsequent sections of the curriculum are arranged in the hierarchical order of organisms used by taxonomists, beginning with fungi and continuing through invertebrates and vertebrates. The curriculum concludes with sections on the human body and ecology. The design of the curriculum includes a blend of elementary and middle school-level activities, indoor and outdoor activities, and activities that can be done individually, in small groups, or as a class. In many cases, there are suggestions for modifying the activities to different grade levels and to different classroom situations.
