The history of biological sciences reveals the journey of scientists exploring life, which contains great educational value. Based on actual teaching cases, this study explores the teaching path of using the history of biological sciences to cultivate students' core literacy from the four dimensions of the core literacy of biology. The specific path includes: experiencing the concept construction process to form life concept literacy; perceiving the process of scientific inquiry and strengthening the consciousness of scientific thinking; focusing on scientific research methods and enhancing the ability of scientific inquiry; comprehending the spirit of the scientist and enhancing the awareness of social responsibility.
