Introduction to Anatomy & Physiology 2 Teacher Guide
Teacher guide covering the Nervous System and Digestive System and Metabolism textbooks.
The vital resource for grading all assignments from the Introduction to Anatomy & Physiology 2 course, which includes:
- Instruction on the nervous system, this master control system of the body, and the digestive system and metabolic processes that help give us the strength and energy we need each day.
- Assessments including worksheets, quizzes, and tests are given at regular intervals with space to record each grade.
OVERVIEW: The introduction to anatomy and physiology continues as students are given a deeper understanding of Gods wonderful design of their bodies. How do just the correct muscles know how to contract in just the right way to allow us to walk? How can we control the movements of our hands in a very precise fashion so that we can brush our teeth? How can we decipher those funny marks on a printed page, understand that they are letters and punctuation marks, and make sense of them? How can we hear others singing and make our voices match theirs? How does the cereal you had for breakfast become energy? Or the popcorn you had at the ballgame? How does the chicken you had for supper provide the amino acids the body needs to build proteins? These questions and more are answered as we look into the wonders of Gods awesome creation, which can only be truly understood as a product of the Master Designer.
FEATURES: The calendar provides 5 lessons weekly with clear objectives, and the worksheets, quizzes, and tests are all based on the readings from the two books.
This newly developed series, written by Answers in Genesis speaker, Dr. Tommy Mitchell, introduces us to the power of our Master Designer displayed in His most complex creation: humans. Each one-year course includes 2 hardcover textbooks and one teacher guide. Textbooks are written to the student using understandable, straightforward text. Vibrant graphics highlight the textual information and provide students with a valuable visualization of the teaching. Texts include a comprehensive glossary and index. 110 pgs each. Teacher Guides provide a weekly lesson schedule based on 5 days per week, reproducible student worksheets, quizzes/tests and answer key for two textbooks. Daily lessons will take 30-45 minutes per day. Student worksheets are perforated and reproducible for homeschool families or small classrooms with fewer than 10 students. SC.
I appreciate that this series starts out on the right track with clear explanations of the complex concepts, making a valuable teaching tool for families with a background in medicine or for a novice family. Course includes no experiments, which may appeal to families who want a solid understanding of anatomy and physiology without the mess of labs. If you would to incorporate hands-on activities, Janice Van Cleave's Human Body for Every Kid may be helpful. This may appeal to families who want a solid understanding of anatomy and physiology without the predicament of dissection. I am excited to see this series through its completion, since it sets a solid foundation for the high-school level sciences, preparing students a course like Apologia Biology (which does not incorporate Anatomy). Books are available separately or in a Systems Kit which includes two textbooks and the Teacher Guide. ~ Deanne
