Below is a typical class announcement from the Academic
Counselor of the homeschooling course.
Welcome Homeschooling Scientists!
Welcome back to a
new year of learning!
This year we
are going to study the physical makeup of living things. We will focus on the
different systems that work together to keep us and other animals alive such as
the digestive, nervous, and circulatory systems. We'll also take a closer look
at cells and specific organs as well. This year we'll be asking lots of
questions. How does the heart pump so much blood? How does the nervous system
use electricity to cause your muscles to move? How do our bodies filter out
waste? Then, we'll dig deep into scientific experimentation and thoughtful
analysis until we find answers to our questions. Biology is a wonderful science
that you can use to pursue a career in medicine, physical therapy, husbandry, or
dozens of other careers.
Good luck to
you, and may the knowledge you gain never outstrip your inherent curiosity and
thirst for learning.
Extra Curricular Activities
Log your child's Extra Curricular Activities to receive credit for the
year we'll be exploring living things with the naked eye and taking a closer
look at microscopic worlds as well. We'll cover the basic functional systems of
living creatures, introduce students to genetics and DNA, and learn all about
what keeps you and me alive. You'll look at living things with a new
perspective upon completion of this course.
