No supplies needed.
There will be no formal assessment for this class. There will be a chance for informal class review and questions.
55 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
There is a possibility that some students (especially those who have never studied human anatomy) may be sensitive to seeing human anatomy images as these images show the inside structures of the human body. Images used in this class are animated/drawings and not real photos. The images are a representation of the body structures, showing differing aspects and layers (skin, muscles, bones, nerves, etc...). Parents, please just be aware of this, and feel free to reach out if you have any questions or concerns for your learner!
Books and anatomy resources are available upon request.
