Product Description:

Expanding on human anatomy, this course focuses on blood and how it takes care of all the parts of our body. Beginning with an overview of cells, students learn about red blood cells, white blood cells, platelets, making blood cells and platelets. Once the foundation is laid, the three types of blood vessels, the heart, and how circulation works with other body systems is covered. Additional materials recommended include an elementary microscope (400x), prepared slides of onion cells and red blood cells (or photographs) double-injected animal specimen that shows arteries and veins in different colors or animal photo that shows arteries and veins in different colors, timer, red and blue pencils or markers, 3’ long drawing paper, buttons (6 small red, 6 small blue, and larger button any color), plastic heart model or photograph, masking tape, and butcher paper.

Category Description for Young Scientists Series (Heron Books):

Hands-on and self-pacing, this new science series meets the learning needs of diverse learners. Courses are well-written, engaging, and focus on mastery of information. With the flexible, independent pacing, students should expect to complete each course in 10-17 hours, with an end of unit exam to ensure mastery. Home Study Kits include several components: the softcover Student Text, the Student Learning Guide, and Teacher Resource Packet. Written from a religiously neutral perspective, so no evolution or intelligent design is discussed.

Abundantly illustrated, the textbook is written to the student and provides many hands-on activities. Students will appreciate the well placed spacing of text and graphics. The layout is truly inviting and not visually overwhelming. The Student Learning Guide supports independent learning by giving students the course purpose and basic instructions to follow. Following this brief introduction, the guide provides steps to complete in order. Steps cover chapter readings and activities. After completing each step, lines are provided for students to initial, and on occasion, the teacher/parent also verifies the step is completed, and initials. Activities vary and include drawing and labeling in a science journal, finding related items, discussing with the teacher, and related hands-on activities or experiments. See individual courses for more detail. The Teacher Resource Packet includes the overall publisher philosophy called Swimming Upstream, background information with materials list, the end of unit exam, exam answers, and a Certificate of Achievement.
