Product Description


  • Ecosystem Interactions and Energy
  • History of Earth’s Atmosphere: Photosynthesis and Respiration
  • Evidence of Common Ancestry and Diversity
  • Inheritance of Traits
  • Structure, Function, and Growth
  • Ecosystem Stability and the Response to Climate Change
  • Basic Skills for Life Science Students

The Living Earth has been designed and written following the High School Three-Course Model for California. It will also suit NGSS-aligned states integrating Earth Science with Biology. This phenomenon-based title takes a three-dimensional approach and emphasizes student inquiry to provide an engaging, relevant, and rigorous program of instruction.

Departing from the more traditional approach of BIOZONE’s Non-Integrated Series, the Integrated Series offers a learning experience based on the 5 Es and anchored in student-relevant phenomena and problems.

Features and Benefits

  • A phenomeon-based approach employing the 5E instructional cycle, aligning with how students learn science.
  • Six Instructional Segments provide the book's structure, enabling seamless navigation through the program. A reference chapter provides support for science and engineering practices.
  • Full integration of the three dimensions of the CA NGSS enables students to deepen understanding of Disciplinary Core Ideas through their use of Science and Engineering Practices and application of Crosscutting Concepts.
  • Activities provide multiple opportunities for students to use first-hand experience to explain phenomena and develop engineering solutions to solve relevant problems.
  • Formative and summative assessments address all three dimensions.
  • Proficiency in mathematics and computational thinking are strongly supported.
  • The California Environmental Principles and Concepts are incorporated throughout.
  • Understandings about the Nature of Science are supported through the Science and Engineering Practices and Crosscutting Concepts.
  • Online learning supported through BIOZONE's resource hub, featuring videos, spreadsheet models, weblinks, and 3D models. Online courses also available through BIOZONE Academy.

Activity 40: Natural Selection
ELABORATE: Adaptations and fitness (page 176) (Student's edition)

Echolocating vertebrates (not mammals)
In the teacher's edition, there has been a clarification to the answer (clarification in bold).
Q21. The echolocation of oilbirds is not as well developed as that of bats. This may be because it is a relatively recent innovation in a lineage separate to that of mammals or because it is not essential to the bird's lifestyle.

Activity 92:Fractions and ratios - Page 406
Q3 Answer includes a typo (20/60 instead of 40/60) Working should read
(5 ∕ 20 x 3 = 15 ∕ 60) + (5 ∕ 12 x 5 = 25 ∕ 60) = 40 ∕ 60 = 2 ∕ 3. 2 ∕ 3 ÷ 2 = 1 ∕ 3

Please advise that we have found some minor numbering errors for the currently circulating Teacher's Editions and some printings of the student edition on pages 25, 62, 111-112, 184, 223, 290-293, 298, 306, 319-320, and 395-396. These for a result of last minute changes to activities for which we apologize.
