Description: Fall semester we will explore the anatomy and physiology of the human body with Apologia. Spring semester we will explore chemistry with Real Science 4 Kids, Newton's Laws with Backyard Ballistics, and encourage thinking skills with the Critical Thinking Co. Since children learn best by doing, around half of the class time each week will incorporate hands-on experiments and activities such as making a model of a cell with Jello and various candies, dissecting a sheep heart, and launching a water rocket. Some weeks will require going outside.
