Elementary Science Year 2 Description

Elementary Science Year 2 is a hands-on, interactive trip from head to toe through the human body. In a three-year curriculum rotation, it is “Year 2” that will prepare students for middle school science classes. During Year 1, we study physical sciences, including chemistry and physics, and in Year 3, we focus on earth science. Using Exploring Creation with Human Anatomy and Physiology from Apologia’s Young Explorer Series, we will begin the year studying cells and then move through all the specific systems of the body, including the skeletal, muscular, circulatory, etc. We will do many hands-on experiments to make these systems “come alive.” We will finish the year covering health and nutrition, basic genetics, and human growth and development. This course will give students a thorough introduction to human anatomy through a biblical worldview and provide a firm foundation for middle school science. As your child’s science teacher, my goal is to provide fun science-related enrichment opportunities, structure, and assessment to your existing homeschool program. At-home assignments will consist of reading with short comprehension activities to ensure understanding. In-class instruction will include discussion of topics, demonstrations, and experiments. Study guides and tests will follow each lesson.
