Noeo Biology 1 guides your kid through an exciting first exploration of the world of biology. We’ve packed your Noeo box with books, lesson plans, and experiments, all ready to go from day 1.
What's in Biology 1?
Comprehensive course of study
Biology 1 starts with the most basic forms of life and moves step-by-step all the way to the inner-workings of humans. By the end, your kid will have a solid grounding in biology for deeper scientific study.
Everything in one box
Built-in lesson plans and experiment materials mean you can start exploring the world of electric eels, frogs, and platypuses as soon as you open the box. Skip the Ready, Set, move straight to the Go!
Biology isn’t just about lists of species—it’s about elephant ears and crustacean dentists and Louis Pasteur. We’ve selected every book in Biology 1 to make the world come alive.
Every week your kids will get their hands dirty in the real world by performing echolocation, going on nature safaris, making stethoscopes, and more. And with easy-to-read experiment guides, your kids can do detailed experiments practically on their own—while you catch up on emails.
Have multiple kids who want to discover new plants and animals and learn how they live? Perfect! Biology 1 is designed so kids across multiple grades can share books, experiments, and lab manuals, or have their own.
Need to adjust your school week for a family getaway? No problem! With options for both a four-day and two-day per week schedule, Biology 1 enables you to adapt your curriculum to your calendar.
A couple things come to mind: The book selection seems a bit odd. The ready-to-read books seem overly simple, the Louis Pasteur book is quite dark for that age audience, and I had no idea there would be SO many graphic novels. I should have done a better job of reviewing each "real" book. We are using NOEO at a classical school (Bio- 1st grade, Phy- 2nd grade) and it would be great to have a way to connect with other schools that have used these materials. I've tried to find support on the couple of suggested websites but to no avail. There are few or no ideas for classroom usage. I see huge potential in this format. Wonder-based learning is major component of classical science. I adore "real" books and experiments. I was the primary advocate for the purchase of NOEO as our new science curriculum and my desire is to see it succeed. I'd appreciate any additional information in terms of classroom implementation or maybe even an explanation of the book choices would be helpful. As a side note, our first Physics 1 book (Max Axiom) is literally falling apart after a couple uses. Could be that it's user error, but I thought you might like to know.
We have been enjoying Biology I. We are only on week 3 but it has been easy to use and holding my kids interest. We have a large age range (k-3rd grade as well as a junior higher with autism and an intellectual disability) but it has been working out well with only a few tweaks for my older special needs son.
I have a huge problem with this curriculum - if I even mention the word science to my kids they go bananas! They love the experiments so much that it's hard to contain their excitement. Great job making every other curriculum pale in comparison. 👍
We started the curriculum right away. It is so easy to use and fun. I have three kids (third, first, and Pre-K) and they've all had a good time with it.
We love the programs flexibility. If a topic sparks interest we can dive in deeper. Only complaint is that in one of the books reptiles are called poisonous when the correct term is venomous.
