This one-time biology & anatomy class explores how the human digestive system turns food into energy! Learners will have fun completing a hands-on fun lab where they make their own digestive system. Yuck but AWESOME! . Students will use common everyday materials to create a working digestive system that will breakdown real food. Learners will be able to interact and collaborate ideas with classmates during the class. Each will be encouraged to fully participate in each day's experiment.
Students learn the methods of prediction, testing, recording results, and improvement. Students will be able to use hands-on activity using everyday items to create a fun and exciting experiments.
I am a middle school and high school science and math teacher with 10 years of experience. Additionally, I am a homeschooling dad of 13 +years who has four kids that are four different types of learners. I have the privilege to teach many subject areas, but chemistry and biology are my favorites as these apply to all other areas of science. My opinion is that if a student understands major biochemical concepts, other sciences become more clear. I hold a MS and BS in the natural sciences and an MA in Counseling.
