Class Experience

Students will learn:
1) The four chambers of the heart (right/left atria and right/left ventricles).
2) The differences between arteries, veins, and capillaries.
3) The path of a red blood cell as it travels through the cardiovascular system loop.
No homework will be assigned for this course. 
A blank coloring page of the cardiovascular system will be available online 48 hours before the course and will be used during the course. Students are encouraged to bring a red, blue, and color of their choice (other than red or blue) writing utensil.
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
Assessment will take place during the lecture. Students will be asked questions as well as a short review at the end of the lesson.
1 hour per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
