Wednesday

3:00 – 4:00

COST: Class duration 2 Semesters ~ $150 per semester

We study the function of each system and how our food choices influence wellness. This is a 2 semester course that covers all aspects of health including anatomy, biology, nutrition and chemistry. Each week there’s opportunity to sample food as a tangible way to experience nutrients. We learn the why’s of what to eat, not just the “because I said so”.  My goal is to equip students to make the best choices for improved health and abundant living. This class satisfies the Ca state requirements for health.

Both male and female students 13 and older are encouraged to enroll.

TEXT:  Nutrition 101: Choose Life! by Growing Healthy Homes.  I have a limited number of books. This text is a
book that your family can use as a constant resource for improved health. It’s much more than a textbook.

Mondays

10:00 – 11:30 a.m.

Starts:  Monday

August 30

Cost of class: $400.00/semester

This course is for Jr High students (6th-8th) and is an introduction to the life sciences. We will cover

  • cells
  • genetics   
  • mitosis/meiosis
  • photosynthesis
  • protein synthesis
  • respiration
  • the 6 kingdoms
  • and human anatomy.

Each week will have a live lecture and hands-on lab. Textbook reading, homework questions, lab paperwork, and tests will be completed by the student at home. A science fair project will also be completed by each student during 2nd semester. A field trip may be offered.

Physical Science

8th – 9th Grade

Taught by:

Jill Wilcox

Mondays

12:00 – 1:30

Starts:  Monday

August 30

Cost of class: $400.00/semester.

This course may be for late Jr High or early High School (8th-9th) and is an introduction to chemistry and physics. It is highly recommended that students take this class prior to high school chemistry and physics. A basic understanding of algebra (how to solve for one unknown) is required.

We will cover:

  • the scientific method
  • measurements
  • energy and motion
  • the nature of matter
  • atomic structur
  • the periodic table
  • elements and their properties
  • and interactions of matter like chemical reactions.
  • Waves, light, and sound will be covered followed by electricity and magnetism.

Each week will have a live lecture and hands-on lab. Textbook reading, homework questions, lab write-ups, and tests will be completed by the student at home. A science fair project will also be completed by each student during 2nd semester.
