Human Body Systems
Now that our unit on matter is complete, students are diving into a thorough study of body systems. This unit began with a study of cells and the amazing processes that allow us to exist. Next, students will explore the circulatory and respiratory systems and discover how they are related. Finally, students will investigate the digestive and excretory systems, during which they will take a tour through the human body as a piece of candy. Yum!
Thank you to the PTA for funding our weekly lessons with STAR Science! Each Wednesday, students spend one hour learning and performing hands-on activities and experiments about a specific science concept with their wonderful teacher, Rebecca. By the end of the 10 weeks, students will have developed their understanding of a wide array of scientific laws and theories. When coupled with our science curriculum, students are prepared to soar through science and on to middle school.
