Middle School Science News: March 2013
The middle school students are continuing to learn about the particular parts of the body and their systems. We plan to construct different parts of the body to create our own version of a practice corpse that we will use to eventually do some surgery on. We will close out the last part of this unit with a comprehensive Jeopardy-style event that will quiz the students on their gained ‘medical’ knowledge. In April, we move towards a short unit on the Solar System, as we focus specifically on the Mars Rover and what that “journey” is going to tell us about the planets around us.
