As you already know, good things come in small packages and the size of a person or animal does not determine their importance.  Using a microscope, students will explore the contents of pond water and the cells of plants.  They will learn about the activities of insects, snails, millipedes and more.

Students will have a mini-foray into real research that gives them the opportunity to choose a plant, spice or soil to test for antibiotics. They will then learn the techniques (Aseptic Technique, Colony Counting, Kirby-Bauer, and Gram Staining) to evaluate those choices.   Students will also learn about plant biology as a context of this antibiotic investigation.

Our young scientists will begin the week investigating the curvy, mushy, and aromatic digestive system. Understanding how the human body obtains the nutrients required for survival will provide the students with a foundation to explore the skeletal, muscular, and nervous systems.  Using their bodies and creating models, they will discover how muscles function with the skeleton to make our bodies move and how the systems respond to injuries.  Investigating and exploring the anatomical adaptations of other animals will provide students with the opportunity to dig deeper into the relationship between the body systems.

All living things are the result of successful adaptation.  Some of these adaptations are physical and some are behavioral. Together, these adaptations make each living thing unique.  Students will look into the past to study the Earth’s first creatures to learn about adaptations, evolution, and paleontology.  Beginning with a brief history of medicine and a peek into cells, students will explore the body systems: skeletal, muscular, respiratory, digestive, cardiovascular, and nervous! They'll study nutrition and health, and how their immune system protects them.
