This cross-curricular course will equip students to understand the systematic nature of their bodies by exploring how muscles, tendons, and bones work together as related to performance. This course covers the basics of human anatomy and physiology including anatomical terminology, basic biochemistry, cells and tissues, and the body systems. This year, students will engage in hands-on lab experiences exploring movement to develop higher-order, scientific critical-thinking skills. Students will also be exploring the interactions of organisms within their communities and the relevancy of these interactions in our daily lives. Additionally, students will develop intrinsic motivation, responsibility for learning, and learn to challenge themselves.
