Mom, I think I want to be a doctor! Hmm, well that came as a shock, as only last week he wanted to be a stockbroker! I completely blame these anatomy books for kids we have been using. So on my search for an actual homeschool biology curriculum, I came across Doctor Robins.
Doctor Robin has created an amazing homeschool biology curriculum for kids aged 8-14 (and as a supplement for high school.)

Biology Homeschool Curriculum For Younger Students
Taking the homeschool biology course with Dr. Robin’s School is actually different from other curriculums we have used. When I looked more into the course, I found out it was written by a homeschool mom. This absolutely explains why it looks different!
The reason this curriculum is so different from other homeschool science curriculum (or in fact anything else we have come across) is that there is no required order.
For example, one day your child may wake up and start talking about their heart. Ok, fantastic, Dr. Robin has lessons on the heart.
We all know as homeschool moms that we have to be flexible with learning, and for us certainly in science. One day we might have lost our taste (don’t worry I am not going there!) so let’s look into lessons we can find on that subject.
There are currently 16 topics in the classroom in the following areas:
- Drawing, coloring, modeling
- Dissections, activities & experiments
- Microbiology, bugs
- Eight senses
- Cardiology, heart
- Pulmonology, lungs
- Muscles & bones
- Endocrinology, hormones
- Head and neck
- Dermatology, skin
- Neurology, nerves, and brain
- Genetics & DNA
- Medical instruments
- GI system, and kidneys
- Blood and the lymphatic system
Human Biology Self-Paced Classes For Pre-Medicine
Within each of the 16 topics listed above, there are roughly 10 individual videos each with either a worksheet or a coloring page. If your child thinks they want to be a doctor I highly recommend Dr. Robins.
Above is a drawing of a cell! When watching the video Dr. Robin talks you through the human cell, and you follow along and draw the cell.
Dr. Robin has such a calming voice I could listen to her for hours! Freddie generally does his work next to me while I am working so we both looked forward to playing the videos!
I also really liked the worksheets. The videos are great, but the worksheets, definitely make this a fantastic human biology curriculum. With every video, there is a worksheet attached, whether it be a coloring page, questions, or labeling.

Dr. Robin’s School of Pre-Medicine Review
We both absolutely love Dr. Robin’s human biology curriculum, and we are sure you will too. Here are a few reasons we love it:
- Engaging and fun worksheets with every video,
- Dr. Robin Dickinson MD is a board-certified family physician and a homeschooling mom,
- New lessons are added regularly (typically one a week with fewer during traditional school holidays),
- Self paced, this is definitely our preference,
- The lessons can be done independently, I recommend listening in though as I guarantee you will also learn something!!
- Pay as you go,
- If we are not ready to consistently focus on our human biology curriculum, no problem, I can just pay for a month at a time.
If you are wanting to get supplies Dr. Robin has you covered (these are not required, but definitely help.)
The price is really reasonable as well, especially as you are being taught by a doctor!
- Monthly subscription $9.95
- Yearly subscription $72.95 ($84.95 non rolling subscription)
- 6 Month subscription $7.95 per/month
- 3 Month subscription $8.95 per/month
