Lily Pad Lab

High School Biology Lab

with Vanessa Moessner


Every other Wednesday, starting Sept 16th, 12:30-2:30pm

During Biology Labs students will complete 1-4 hands-on experiments, activities, simulations to supplement a general biology curriculum.  Students will continue to develop inquiry skills, proper lab techniques, and fundamentals of lab report writing while exploring concepts in life science.

Biology Labs at Lily Pad Lab will follow the sequence of topics in the Apologia Biology curriculum.   We will work through many labs from the curriculum but will also take part in other experiments and activities.  Students are not required to use the Apologia Curriculum and are encouraged to not purchase the lab book.

Parents will be responsible for at-home learning using the curriculum of their choice OR chose to enroll your student in the Biology Virtual Course.

Optional Biology Virtual Course:  

For an additional fee of $25 per semester students can enroll in the Virtual Biology Class led by Vanessa Moessner.  The course will offer the option of assignments and activities from the Apologia text or assignments utilizing a digital text.  The Course will be interactive and will include articles, activities, games, and discussions as we work through 1 module (chapter) every 2 weeks.  This is a FULL Biology Course option.  The instructor will send parents a suggested grade for each semester.  Students will not be graded on a comparison, rather on potential and individual effort.  The course will utilize Canvas as a learning management system.


Vanessa Moessner, owner and educator at Lily Pad Lab, started teaching Homeschool Science Labs in 2016 when she was approached by a homeschool parent to help with her daughter’s Biology labs.  She has been enjoying working with a wide age range of homeschool students ever since!  Before starting a family, Vanessa was a public high school biology, chemistry and physical science teacher and holds a Master of Science Education degree.
