I am switching the Plants and Human Body Units so that Middle School and Elementary School are doing Human Body at the same time.
This will be a continuation of Elementary School Biology from the Fall. I am open to new families joining. Please talk to me if you are interested in joining midway.
Students will need a copy of Biology for the Grammar Stage: Student guide and a science encyclopedia. They recommend the First Human Body Encyclopedia DK and Basher Science: Biology
There will be several field trips relating to this class. They are NOT mandatory. Mud Creek Environmental Learning Center, New York State Museum, Boston Museum of Science and the Bronx Zoo.
