Let's start with a simple division: Anatomy Arcade - Students. Nothing beats a hands on dissection, but I'm sure you'd agree that school would be heaps better if there were more games like this and less worksheets.

Crust edge = cell membraneSauce & cheese = cytoplasmSalami = nucleusMushroom = nucleolusOnion = endoplasmic reticulumGreen pepper = golgi bodyRed pepper = mitochondriaPepperoni = vacuoles & centriolesOlives = ribosomes & lysosomes A simple review sheet from Crayola served as a “quiz”.

This YouTube video gave us a nice overview of DNA within cells. We were so excited to learn more about DNA by working with the CSI DNA Build Kit. Human Body Systems - Our Journey Westward. Considering God’s Creation has been the spine curriculum for our 6th grade human body study.
