This week, students broke themselves into groups and were assigned an organ system in the human body. Students have been working with laptops to create a digital presentation, design a lab experiment to conduct with their classmates, and construct a visual model or demonstration. Students will begin presenting their organ systems in class next week. Click below to see the specifics.

Piggy Week is coming up and students are already excited! As a conclusion to our Human Body unit, students will spend a week dissecting fetal pigs. We are currently scheduled to dissect the week of May 8th - 12th, ending with a lab test on Friday the 12th. For those students not wanting to participate in the lab, other alternatives will be offered closer to date. It's only two weeks away, get excited!

There will be a Test on Friday, April 21st, covering Chapters 10, 11, 12, and 13. Because of the large size of this unit, students will be given an open-note test (please note that it is NOT OPEN-BOOK). Students will be tested directly from the Section Reviews completed in class and the invertebrate and vertebrate fact tables completed in class. Because the test is open-note, there will not be a study guide.
