Honors Middle School Anatomy Self Paced (Year Long: Grades 6-8)

    Anatomy & Physiology

    Grades 6-8

    Honors Middle School Level

    Length: Full Year Anatomy (2 Semesters,  17 Week Long Semesters )

    Includes: Access to class via Google Classroom, 5 assignments each week (85 total assignments each semester), access to graded assessments via Quizizz, vocabulary practice on Quizlet, online textbook resources, and science spiral template. 

    Description of Class: Anatomy and Physiology is a course that will enable students to develop an understanding of the relationships between the structures and functions of the human body. Students will also learn the mechanisms for maintaining homeostasis within the human body. This course will involve laboratory activities, projects, dissections, textbook material, models, diagrams, journal writings, and clinical studies.

    Class Approach: Lectures and activities will emphasize topics related to human anatomy and physiology.

    Students will read journals/medical articles, participate in group discussion questions, complete labs/lab reports, and complete diagrams of body systems.


    Upon successful completion of Anatomy and Physiology students will be able to-

    1. Use appropriate terminology to discuss anatomy and physiology.

    2. Identify anatomical structures and describe the complex interrelationships between

    structure and function.

    3. Explain how body systems work together to maintain homeostasis.

    4. Propose evidence-based hypotheses to explain physiological responses or the functions of

    anatomical structures.

    Textbook: Various resources will be used in the class, but all chapters will be provided via pdf from Cengage, CK-12, Holt and Glencoe resources. 

    Additional Supplies/Resources Needed:

    Color pencils, tape,  pens, notecards, 1 spiral notebook (90 pages or larger), scissors, tape, construction paper, play-doh or clay for 3d system models, dissection tools, latex gloves, dissection tray, dissection specimens (cow eye, cow heart, and sheep brain). 

    Requirements: The student will need access to a computer and wifi, upload images of work, upload video responses using Flipgrid, and complete assignments in GC. 

    Weekly Homework: Students will have 5-6 min assignments each week. In addition to weekly assignments, labs and online interactives are part of the curriculum.

    This class is for middle school student specifically with the same topics as high school anatomy, but less readings and the use of material at a 5-6th grade reading level. At this age students thrive using step-by-step fun labs, with lots of artistic science sketching opportunities. Students will create their own anatomy spiral resource during the course filled with short notes, diagrams, lots of science sketches of body systems, and fun labs. 


    The first semester will be due upon registration, then second semester can be paid 60 days later.
