Intensive Middle School Human Biology-Part 3
In this intensive 7-week class that meets twice a week and includes homework, students in middle school will learn the biology of the human body and organ systems. (This is Part 3) #academic
US Grade 5 - 8
NOTE: This is Part 3 of this series. The classes do not have to be taken on order. Cells, organs, and organ systems......let's explore the organ systems of the human body! In this 7-week class (Part 3), students will meet twice a week and have homework for two days a week. Two parts of the Human Biology classes will equal a semester, and taking all four parts will give an entire year of Human Biology study. Each class begins with discussion over our homework, review of the previous class,...
This class is taught in English.
Students will be able to explore through lecture, experiments, demonstrations, homework, and discussion the organ systems of the human body.
I was a middle school science teacher for 10 years. I have also homeschooled my daughter for 8 years. As a public school teacher, I taught Earth Science, Chemistry, Physical Science, Zoology, Biology, and more to hundreds of students. Science is a passion of mine and I find performing experiments both fascinating and illuminating when learning new scientific facts! In this class, students will have ample opportunity to perform their own experiments to reiterate the information they learn in class. I have my Bachelor's degree in Biology/Pre-Med and a Master's in Healthcare Administration. I currently manage a hospital-based sleep lab where we practice many of the things (blood pressures, respiratory issues) we will discuss in class.
Homework will be a variety of worksheets and labs throughout the course. Homework should last an hour or less for each assignment.
Sheep heart specimen (https://www.homesciencetools.com/product/heart-sheep-specimen/) or can be purchased from other websites. Computer paper Dissection Kit (https://www.homesciencetools.com/product/advanced-dissecting-tools/ or can be purchased from Amazon. Clay/Play-Doh Plastic bags (Ziploc type...sealable) Poster board Markers or paint or crayons
A letter grade will be given for each homework assignment if it is uploaded to the teacher. We will also begin each class by discussing the homework given and review our previous information learned.
1 hour 40 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 2 - 4 hours per week outside of class.
Students will be using dissection tools that can be sharp. Students must be mature enough in parent's decision to utilize these tools during class independently. We will also be looking at real images of organs, cells, tissues, etc.
