Exploring Health Sciences
Our teacher advisors explore the link between health, science and education that schools can play. Their thematic units bring personal and environmental health issues to life using real-world examples based on their students, schools and communities.
An activity that introduces students to the food pyramid, food groups, and the relationship between nutrition and a healthy body
Students will examine environmental health by investigating the causes and effects of over-consumption and pollution of our natural resources and how to better care for our air, land, and water.
Students will research and assume roles as medical specialists through hands-on projects, research, reports, and presentations. Culminating activities will include working with a health specialist to dissect/observe cow eyes, sheep brains, pig lungs, pig heart, or various bones (including cow, rodent, and human bones).
