12-16 Lab Wu is a flexible XLS grade keeper that includes a version of my composition grader, Lab WU [Lab Write-Up]. 12-16 is designed for co-op lab science classes that have 12 students or less and are using a plan based on 16 sections of work, such as 16 chapters, or in the case of Apologia science, 16 modules. 12-16 averages grades in quarters and semesters and yields a final grade for the year.
File Format Key:
- PDF file, requires Acrobat Reader
- DOC, DOCX, or RTF format - word processors
- Spreadsheet - requires a spreadsheet program
- Zipped files - requires a means of unzipping the files. I am using plain "zip" and that might be compatible with most computers without downloading any special programs. Typically one should download the zipped file, right-click the file, then select something like "Extract Files."

Comments from Tina Thruston:
We finished Botany in a semester and then went on to Zoology for a semester. We emailed the kids regularly with updates or reminders. Our class time for Botany was two hours every other week. With Zoology we found we needed to meet more often (the book is larger) and so adjusted our schedule. We bought all the supplies needed for the class and kept them in a bin ready to go. The families split the cost. One thing not noted in the schedule is the videos we used. I would go to the library or Netflicks and get a video that pertained to our subject matter. We watched one on photosynthesis, for instance, when we studied that in the book. We also checked out Dr. Wile's site during class or on our own, that went along with the chapter. The kids kept a notebook and designed their own cover. Dr. Wile's site offers notebook pages that compliment the program. They are very helpful. Note: When we studied zoology, we did not revisit bees since we covered that with Botany.

Exploring Creation with General
Science Co-op Schedule 2nd Edition
Kris Stedl has updated Leah Michell's 1st edition general science schedule to a 2nd edition schedule
"This schedule allows for some labs that are not in the book, and outside work on breaks and after co-op ends to complete the book in one year. This, of course, can be modified by those using it to suit their own schedule." - Leah

Do not link to the lesson plan files because the file links will not work when placed outside of this website. That means it is futile to link to doc, rtf, zip, or pdf. You may, however, link to the groups of lesson plans - keep reading.
Each book has a shortcut link and they are linked at the top of the page and to the right. If you want to directly link to lesson plans for a certain book, choose the link for the book and click on it. Copy and paste the link that is in your address bar - the URL should contain a hash mark #.
