This course is a combination of direct instruction and hands-on lab exploration. Following the sequencing of the textbook, students will engage in group and independent work exploring the intricate world of Life Science. Each week, we will transform our classroom into a laboratory and explore what we've learned with hands-on experimentation. We will dissect a cow eyeball, a sheep heart, and a sheep brain this year. Students will contribute their work to our annual science festival each March.
This course is appropriate for all middle school students (grades 6-8).
