Required Materials or Books:
Exploring Creation with Human Anatomy and Physiology by Jeannie Fulbright. I have found that Christian Book Distributors offers the best price for the textbook. Mardel in Waco will also carry it. Students in the same family may share a textbook. I will provide your student with their notebook and folder for class. Please have your child bring pencils, colored pencils, scissors, and a glue stick to class each week.

Class Description:
Join us on a journey that gives glory to God as children discover what’s going on inside their bodies!

“After briefly reviewing the history of man’s attempts to understand the human body, students are taught about the highly complex, all-important cell. The book then discusses the main systems of the human body, discussing in detail the Skeletal, Muscular, Digestive, Respiratory, and Circulatory Systems, as well as several others. The book culminates by tying it all together with the study of Growth and Development. Procreation is addressed in terms of DNA and genes.” (Quote taken from book description.)

We will dissect a chicken wing to learn about bones and ligaments, find our own arteries, veins and capillaries, build a stethoscope, investigate the genetics of inheritance, test our muscle strength, explore the five senses and much, much more! The children will also enjoy adding illustrations of organs to their human body poster!

As with other Apologia courses, your child will work on their notebook each week. They will narrate what they have learned, make sketches, and record data from experiments. By the end of the year, they can easily refer to their notebook to remind them of everything we studied. Because one of my goals for the children is to become prepared for more rigorous upper level sciences, I will administer tests in this class, and there will be some homework each week.
