Fellow Scientists,

During the month of January, we will continue our study of the human body systems. Students will develop an understanding of all of the unique and interesting body systems that make up living organisms. These systems will include the digestive, circulatory, respiratory, excretory, skeletal, integumentary, muscular, nervous, and endocrine systems. To wrap up our human body unit, students will have the opportunity to observe these individual systems up close and personal through the dissection of a frog! This dissection will be a unit within itself as we go through many different approaches of exploration! 

Below, you will also find PDF files of the notes that we take in class and the learning goals for the chapter that we are currently covering. Learning goals packets are given the day we start each chapter and are due the day we take the chapter test along with chapter vocabulary.
