Description

Class Experience

Students will gain confidence and learn new ideas about the endocrine system and how important it is for our body to function properly.  We will not discuss in detail each hormone as there are too many complex concepts to learn.  I want each student to gain an understanding of this system and how the various structures work together to help maintain homeostasis in the body.
As a Registered Nurse who specialized in Cardiology for over 10 years, I've always been fascinated by the heart, respiratory, skeletal, integumentary, endocrine, and nervous systems.  This class gives me the opportunity to teach children about this specific system and its significance in the body. I traveled many years in the field of Cardiac Consulting to assist with the implementation of Cardiac Surgery centers throughout the country.  Bringing this learning opportunity to children is a passion of mine.  Young learners are like a sponge and open to grasp complex anatomy when presented in this unique format.  Watching each student learn about the human body and the amazing functions of the endocrine system is fascinating!
A handout will be placed in the classroom prior to our first session.  Please print this out and bring colored pencils along with a regular pencil to class.
Additionally, an optional homework assignment will be posted in the classroom after each session.
Students will have a handout placed in the classroom to print out and may want to bring colored pencils with them to class.
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
45 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 0 - 1 hours per week outside of class.
We will not be discussing the reproductive hormones of the body as this would encompass the reproductive system components.  This class stresses the endocrine system and how the body maintains homeostasis with the many different organs involved.  Parents may choose to discuss the reproductive organs with their child and relate this to the endocrine system as well.
