Science Saturday – The Immune System

science saturday 500

Usually, the Science Saturday post tells you how we studied a chapter of Apologia Human Anatomy and Physiology the previous week. This week, our co-op was on spring break, so we just prepared for next week’s study of the immune system.  So, I’m sharing some resources we found that we will be using to study the immune system next week.

  • The How the immune system works video from KidsHealth.org is a fun, animated overview.
  • The immune response animation and quiz from McGraw-Hill will be a good way to review and test what the kids have learned at the end of the week.
  • The Notebooking Journal that goes along with the text is a great place for students to take notes on fun pages, do crosswords that help them learn new terms, and to record experiments.
  • We’ll be swabbing surfaces around the house and using those swabs to inoculate petri dishes to see which surfaces has the most bacteria. I’m sure this will gross us out and I’ll spend the rest of the week sanitizing!!
  • Our kids love The Magic School Bus series. This World Of Germs science kit would be so fun if I could get it here in time!
