Introduce your elementary school-age child to anatomy and physiology with this fascinating guide to the nervous, respiratory, and circulation systems. Kids will learn all about how the brain communicates with the rest of the body, how we breathe, and how our circulation system is essential. This curriculum also stresses the practical application of this knowledge, which helps students understand how what they are learning applies to medicine and their everyday lives. Written from a biblical worldview and authored by a doctor who homeschools her own children, this course is an effective, easy-to-use science curriculum that is sure to educate and engage students.
Features: Each suggested weekly schedule has two easy-to-manage lessons that combine reading, worksheets, and vocabulary-building opportunities. Worksheets, quizzes, and tests are perforated and three-hole punched — materials are easy to tear out, hand out, grade, and store. Adjust the schedule and materials needed to best work within your educational program. Space is given for assignments dates. There is flexibility in scheduling. Adapt the days to your school schedule.
Workflow: Students will read the pages in their book and then complete each section of the PLP. They should be encouraged to complete as many of the activities and projects as possible as well. Tests are given at regular intervals with space to record each grade. If used with younger students, they may be given the option of only choosing activities or projects of interest to them and taking open book tests.
Lesson Scheduling: Space is given for assignment dates. There is flexibility in scheduling. For example, the parent may opt for a M–W schedule rather than a M, W, F schedule. Each week listed has four to five days. Adapt the days to your school schedule. As the student completes each assignment, he/she should put an “X” in the box.
