Best Homeschool High School Biology Live Online 2023
The Best Homeschool High School Biology Live Online Class and Curriculum for 2023 is a great way to get started learning bio! The Spring 2023 (Jan-May) section is open for enrollment, meeting twice weekly on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 10:05-10:50 AM PST / 1:05-1:50 PM EST starting on Thurs Jan 19, 2023.
Best Homeschool High School Biology Live Online Curriculum
It’s the best homeschool high school biology online class because it’s is a fun introduction to high school level cell biology. The next live classes start in January of 2023, and we also have a Self Paced version (and free demo lessons) of the online bio course.
Our homeschool high school biology courses called Cell Bio Parts A and B are the easiest way to get a complete year of high school life sciences credit. Check schedules for an upcoming course by clicking the calendar below. Or check out the Self Paced version or free Cell Bio Part A demo lessons.

Course Topics: 2023 Homeschool High School Biology (Part A)
Lesson 1: Prokaryotic Cells Diagrams
We start by learning about the simplest organisms, those that lack a nucleus. In biology, these are called the prokaryotes. They are tiny, single celled life forms. A common example is bacteria, and will learn about the roles of “good” and “bad” bacteria. The lesson will focus on making a scientific drawling of the bacteria, and identifying all of the parts. The laboratory component will have an online microscope training.
Lesson 2: Eukaryotic Cells Diagrams
The second lesson is about cells that have a nucleus. These are more complex lifeforms known as the eukaryotes. They could be tiny, single celled lifeforms, or, eukaryotes could be multicellular lifeforms, like us humans. The lesson will focus on making a scientific drawling of a generic animal cell, which is the type of cell found in humans. We learn to identify parts, and, understand what they do. There’s a fill in the blank exercise to help with the vocabulary. For lab, we learn how to prepare a proper biology laboratory notebook.
Lesson 3: Plant and Animal Cells
It turns out that plant cells are way more complex and animal cells. And so, in the third lesson we make drawings of plant cells. They have more parts the animal cells, and this will be one of the more complex drawings in the course. We will play some word games to help with the vocabulary, and the laboratory activity will be to draw some prokaryotic cells.
Lesson 4: Brain, Skin and Blood Cells
We will learn about different types of cells in the human body, including the various types of blood cells, skin cells, and are cells and brain cells. The lab activity will focus on making microscope drawings of blood cells.
Lesson 5: DNA, RNA, and Proteins
The nucleic acids, DNA and RNA, are found in the nucleus of cells. We will understand their role in making proteins, which are substances that cells need to stay alive and healthy. The lab will focus on making microscope drawings of nucleic acids.
Lesson 6: Lipid Bilayers: Membranes
Membranes are the single most important aspect of a cell, as you might say they define the cell. Membranes separate what’s outside cell from what’s inside. And membranes also separates the many, tiny organelles found with in living cells. We will learn about the chemical structure of membranes. The bio lab will be making microscope drawings of membranes.
Lesson 7: Active & Passive Membrane Transport
We continue the discussion of membranes, and we learn how salt and water or moved into the cell. This is important not only to keep the cells hydrated, as life requires water. Through the process of osmosis, salsa brought into the cell cause water to flow into the cell, pressurizing the cell, so we can hold its shape and function properly. The lab will use electron microscopes to make drawings of organelles found within living cells.
Lesson 8: Lungs and Blood Cells
In the final lesson we put it all together and we understand how blood cells in the lungs help new oxygen around the body. It’s an applied lesson in which we understand how the biology of cells affect the biology of our human body as a whole. The lab will be to make drawings of blood cells using an electron microscope.
Course Topics: 2023 Homeschool High School Biology (Part B)
Cell Biology Part B can be taken after Part A. The second course, Part B, is about cell growth and division. We will focus on mitosis meiosis and plant reproductive methods. The class will also cover pedigree analysis and inheritance, without having an overly complicated molecular approach to study DNA in detail. The high school homeschool biology course will focus on understanding practical aspects of how individual cells affect human health. Examples include antibodies and genetic diseases.
