A new group of students will be starting Health and will be learning about the body systems. During class students will have an opportunity to learn and discuss the functions of these systems so they can have a better understanding of how the body works! First, the students will learn about the Skeletal System and how it is the framework for our body. They will have to identify the major bones that protect the organs and give the body support. Students will then learn how the Muscular System works with our Skeletal System to allow us to move. Students will learn how involuntary muscles keep us alive. While discussing the Digestive System students will learn the path that food takes during the digestive process. The next system the students will focus on will be the Circulatory System. Students will discuss the four components of blood as well as how and why blood is pumped through the body. While learning about the Respiratory System students will the discuss the pathway of respiration. Lastly, students will be introduced to the Nervous System and the responsibilities of the major parts of the brain.
In Physical Education the students will be starting a dance unit. They will be responsible for learning and performing several different dances during this activity! Although, this activity is much different than the usual PE activity, students really seem to enjoy it!
