Life Science, Mrs. Sarah Jones

We have continued studying the human body systems. We studied major bones in the body and made miniature skeletons. The students had a great time dissecting chicken wings and using their knowledge of joints to identify tendons, ligaments, and cartilage. The latest system has been the digestive system, and students are using chemicals to explore how carbohydrates break down in the body. We will be wrapping up this unit in the next couple of weeks with a frog dissection and a disease project, both exciting parts of the year.
