Human Anatomy and Physiology for Grades 3-5 (10:00)
Course: Science: Human Anatomy and Physiology (3-5)
Instructor: Windy Sasser
Curriculum: Human Anatomy and Physiology
Using a combination of curricula, including Apologia, we will study the design and intricacy of the human body. We will work through some of the body systems including: muscular, skeletal, digestive, respiratory, cardiovascular, nervous/ endocrine, immune, and integumentary. The goal is not to quickly get through them all, but to thoroughly learn about and understand each system’s main organs, their functions, locations and many interesting facts that will inspire us all to continue to dive deeper, become more aware of God’s miraculous design and to be more inclined to take of the body God designed for each of us. Each student will have an interactive project that we will work on throughout the year that they will be able to take home at the end of year that can be used for practice and further study. We may nt get to all of the body systems in one year.
