Science - Human Anatomy - Grades 3rd-6th - Corinne Park
 

Elementary Science  – Anatomy Corinne Park –

Text books:  Exploring Creation with Human Anatomy  and Physiology and Human Anatomy and Physiology Notebooking Journal  by Apologia

From the brain in your head to the nails on your toes, your students will encounter fascinating facts, engaging activities, intriguing experiments, and loads of fun as you learn about the human body and how to keep it working well. Beginning with a brief history of medicine and a peek into cells and DNA, your students will voyage through fourteen lessons covering many subjects, such as the body systems: skeletal, muscular, respiratory, digestive, cardiovascular, nervous and more! They’ll study nutrition and health, how God designed their immune system to protect them, along with embryology and what makes them a unique creation of God. In addition to all this exploration, your students will enjoy scientific experiments and projects, such as identifying blood type, creating a cell model from candy, and even building a stethoscope! In keeping with the other books in the Apologia elementary science Young Explorer Series, the Charlotte Mason methodology is employed with engaging narratives, narration prompts and notebooking projects, all of which reinforce their learning using proven techniques that strengthen retention.

Each family will need to purchase the text Exploring Creation with Human Anatomy and Physiology  (Apologia).  Each student will need their own Notebooking Journal that goes with this text (Buy the regular edition, not the Jr. Edition).  Siblings may share a text, but will each need their own notebooking journal.  One place that generally has them on sale is christianbook.com.

General Science/Lab (Apologia) - Grades 7th–8th - Anna Flournoy
Required time outside class 3-4 hrs. per week

Exploring Creation with General Science is meant to bridge the gap between the elementary sciences and upper level sciences.  This course is a true “general” science course as its range of topics is broad.  We will cover the basics and history of science, astronomy, the earth sciences, physics, chemistry, and biology.  The text is divided into 14 modules so we will spend approximately 2 weeks per module.

Class time will primarily be spent conducting lab investigations and performing hands on experiments.  Outside work will involve completing classwork, reading the text, and studying.  (approximately 3 hours)

This class will use the 3rd edition of Apologia’s Exploring Creation with General Science. (ISBN 9781946506573)  The 2nd edition is not compatible with the 3rd edition.  It is not necessary to buy anything other than the text.

This class will be offered on Mondays, 10:30-12, at Gracepoint.

NOTE:  Please, no 8th graders.  You may contact the teacher for further information.

Apologia curriculum – Exploring Creation with Biology, 2nd Edition

 

PURCHASE:  Book set (text + solutions manual); PLUS Items on Supply List (on Registration pg)

My biology course requires TIME.  To avoid dropping, please evaluate if the demands as outlined below will work best in your school year & family time.  Your student will benefit from my class, but not if they do not have a schedule that allows them to do the work.  Late work is not accepted, so keeping on track is essential.

2021-2022:  This is one of the toughest courses you will love.  It is a college and work force preparatory class that is formatted to train students accordingly.  The course is set up to help teach students how to learn and how to study.  The work is demanding, but not only does the student learn biology plus life skills, the lab is designed to foster teamwork and class unity.

TIME COMMITMENT: This course is challenging.  Per text author – 45 minutes to one hour per school day; however, it can vary greatly for each individual student and during some weeks students are working on projects.

This is one of the many things addressed at our Orientation.

ACCOUNTABILITY:  A high level of accountability is incorporated into the course.  To maintain enrollment, students must follow through on weekly assignments.  A vital component of the course grade evaluation is following instructions and keeping work organized.  It begins at the required Student-Parent Orientation.

Our class Orientation is the week before class starts.  More details are below.  The date can be found on the TTC Calendar.  Time details are released in August.

There are 16 modules, which translate into 32 weeks of work to cover in 30 weeks, so students have a reading and work assignment to complete prior to our first class in the Fall AND Spring semester.

Students are given an outline of course work required to complete as school work, which includes the student correcting and grading work that is turned in for review.  Another vital component is the student’s notebook where all of the course work is to be filed weekly.  Notebooks are a major part of the course.

Advice – Do not get behind!

The focus is mastery of the subject and the best way to learn is to do; therefore, the course incorporates 7 projects that are used for test scores.  The grading system for each project is given in advance.  These projects include three 3-D presentations covering a cell, ecosystem, and insect, 1 project enables students to engage in a round-table discussion on evolution with specific parameters, 2 are labs in the text that are completed at home, with one presented in class and one turned in, and the last 1 is a perch dissection.  The first project is due at the end of the first semester.

Pertaining to the labs, some common items to assist in the experiments are required to bring to class.  Also, one experiment is performed off campus at a pond, location to be announced.  The text heavily emphasizes vocabulary and provides a strong background in the scientific method, the five-kingdom classification scheme, microscopy, biochemistry, cellular biology, molecular and Mendelian genetics, evolution, dissection, and ecosystems and provides a complete survey of the five kingdoms in Creation.

Looking forward to our exciting adventure as we do this together!
