Welcome to Exploring the Human Body! Students will embark on a fascinating journey through the intricacies of human anatomy. From bones to muscles, organs to systems, this class will provide an engaging exploration of what makes our bodies work.


Throughout the course, students will delve into the following key areas:


1. Introduction to Anatomy: We'll start by learning the basics of anatomy, understanding the different body parts and their functions. Through interactive lessons and engaging visuals, students will grasp the foundational concepts of the human body.


2. The Skeletal System: Get ready to uncover the framework of our bodies – the skeletal system! From the skull to the toes, students will learn about the bones that support and protect our organs, as well as their roles in movement and stability.


3. Muscular Marvels: Muscles are the powerhouse of our bodies! Through hands-on activities and demonstrations, students will discover the different types of muscles and how they work together to help us move and perform daily activities.


4. Organs and Systems: Explore the inner workings of the human body as we dive into the major organs and systems. From the heart pumping blood to the lungs breathing in oxygen, students will gain a deeper understanding of how each part contributes to our overall health and well-being.


5. Health and Wellness: In addition to learning about anatomy, students will also explore the importance of maintaining a healthy lifestyle. Discussions on nutrition, exercise, and hygiene will empower students to make informed choices for their own well-being.


6. Hands-on Activities and Projects: Learning about anatomy doesn't have to be boring! Students will participate in fun, hands-on activities and projects to reinforce concepts and make learning come alive.


7. Interactive Learning Environment: This class will foster a supportive and interactive learning environment where students can ask questions, share ideas, and engage with materials. 


By the end of Exploring the Human Body, students will have a newfound appreciation for the complexity and resilience of the human anatomy. Whether they aspire to become doctors, athletes, or simply want to understand their own bodies better, this class will lay a solid foundation for future learning and exploration in the world of anatomy. Join us on this exciting adventure and discover the amazing world within!

All classes are full-year classes. Students enrolled in a Fall Semester class will automatically enroll for the Spring Semester in December to ensure their place in the class. Pricing is per semester.
