This class will explore and examine the structures of the human body and their functions. Students will investigate each system of the human body in detail including circulatory, digestive, skeletal/muscular, respiratory, and nervous sensory systems.
Students will meet for interactive live lectures, will work in groups, and will be given independent assignments to complete and turn in. This will use Zoom telecommunications software and will require use of a computer and headphones.
Dissections will be performed by the teacher and will occur over live video. In order to increase interactivity of labs, multiple options are being considered including:
Students optionally buying a dissection kit and performing dissections at home with the assistance of their parents concurrently with the live video with the teacher.
Students watching the live dissection and performing dissections independently with their parents using the dissection recording.
Students who do not wish to dissect could observe the live dissection and then participate in virtual dissection activities to reinforce the lab.
