This year seems to be rapidly going by. We recently completed units on Cell Parts, Cell Processes, and an Introduction to the Periodic Table. Soon, we are diving into units about Body Systems and Heredity. Through the centuries, the study of animals has led to many advances in our understanding of life on earth and in our own bodies. This year students will have had the opportunity to participate in a dissection of the frog in our Body Systems unit. For the culminating activity in the heredity unit, we will observe our own DNA. These types of engaging activities help to develop a deeper understanding of the content. Thank you District 118 and the Community for supporting educationally enriching experiences.
