Class Description

In this course we will cover “the body’s organ systems, ranging from the digestive and respiratory systems to the endocrine and lymphatic systems.” We will also review how the body fights off viruses and things such as the intricate workings of the cells ATP production in the Electron Transport Chain. We will be doing lots of dissections including cow eye, sheep brain, fetal pig and cat. We will make a brains out of play dough, find out our blood types at the end of the year and have a fun forensics case to solve using blood typing.
