Homeschoolers will gain invaluable knowledge about how the body takes in nutrients and filters out toxins in the beginning half of this course.  We will learn about bacteria, viruses, sickness and disease and most importantly, how to avoid these things.  Developing clean and healthy habits is an important part of growing up.  Students will also take a look at some of the changes that their bodies are about to go through as they transition through adolescence into teenagers.  We will finish out the year with a discussion on what homeschoolers can do in the event of an emergency.
