Elementary Science: Apologia Human Anatomy and Physiology  

Course Syllabus & Required Books/Materials

Class Description: Exploring Creation with Human Anatomy and Physiology is an elementary level anatomy and physiology book that gives glory to God as children discover all that goes on in their bodies from their heads to the nails on their toes! Beginning with a brief history of medicine and a peek into cells and DNA, your students will voyage through fifteen lessons covering many subjects, such as the body systems: skeletal, muscular, respiratory, digestive, cardiovascular, nervous and more! (from the Apologia website) No worries: the reproductive system is left for home study.

Most lessons in the book will be covered over two class times by reviewing background material as well as completing the chapter experiments and Try this! activities.  No need to complete any experiments at home! Homework for this class will consist of reading one chapter of the book during one week and then completing vocabulary and review questions (for older class) in the notebooking journal the following week.
