This no-prep bundle is all of the notes, labs, activities, practices, homework, projects, quizzes, and tests you need to teach an entire year of biology. Every major biology unit is covered and listed below. Everything is provided for two levels – CP and Honors. This is an excellent stand-alone resource or could be used to refresh or supplement an existing curriculum that you have. Because it is all-inclusive, it is especially perfect for new teachers, maternity leave, and flipped classrooms!

Why should I use this product in my classroom?
Designing curriculum for an entire year that is engaging, activity-based, and standard-aligned can be exhausting. I’ve spent over 4 years creating this curriculum and over 400 hours this summer perfecting it for you. With this curriculum I had a 96% pass rate on the state standardized End-of-Course exam for Non-Honors students and a 100% pass rate for honors students. This was at a South Carolina Public School with over 50% of the students being below the poverty line. My average score on the EOC (all 200+ students combined that I taught over 2 years) was a 90%. I believe this success is due to multiple factors, but I attribute a lot of it to the packet curriculum I have designed, and the fact that all of my tests are cumulative. You can read more about my packet curriculum strategy (and why I don’t use interactive notebooks) by reading my blog post about it HERE.
What types of files are included?
When you download this product you will receive a PDF with a link to Dropbox, where all of the documents are hosted. This is because the amount of files you are downloading are too large to be hosted on TpT, thus I’ve saved them all for you to easily access on Dropbox. You don’t need an account to access them or utilize them, but if you want a Dropbox account, they are free to create!
Most of the documents in this product that you will get from Dropbox are secured PDF’s. Editable versions are only included for the unit plans, quizzes, tests and some aspects of the activities for you to customize for your classroom. The PowerPoint lecture notes also have editable text. This is to protect the copyright and intellectual property of my own work, plus the work of many dedicated clip artists that are included in this product. If you have questions about this, please don’t hesitate to email me with them!
