Looking for a solidly Christian and academically complete health and nutrition course for your high schooler? You may have just found it! Although this course was not available for an independent review prior to our catalog printing, it appears this course will meet the academic and value needs of homeschool families. Beginning with an overview of anatomy and physiology, this courses scope includes senses, genetics, macro and micro nutrients, exercise and diet. Emotional issues and mental illness, human value, culture, gender roles, families, socialization, communication skills and conflict resolution skills are also covered. Reproductive anatomy and physiology are covered including accurate illustrations and descriptions. Marriage, sexuality, pregnancy and sexually transmitted diseases are discerningly explained, along with alcohol and drug abuse, depression, pornography and other topics necessary for our young people to understand for successful navigation in adulthood. This is handled gently, and respectfully, but parents should evaluate their young adults emotional and spiritual maturity prior to lessons. Over 50 projects are included in the text/student notebook which will not require a lab kit. The publisher states this will not meet a high school science lab credit.
Unlike other Apologia courses, the Student Notebook is required for this course. Solutions are available online with course purchase. Apologia recommends the course be taken concurrently with their 9th grade Biology. Parents should discern their young person's ability and maturity. This one-year course will meet your transcript needs and prepare your student for college level courses. ~ Deanne

Exactly what was needed in the Apologia elementary science scope and
sequence – the Human Body. We waited awhile for this, but it was worth the
wait (as we knew it would be). Continuing their pattern of in-depth studies,
exciting information, engaging activities, and biblical worldview, this latest
course examines the body systems – skeletal, muscular, respiratory,
digestive, cardiovascular, nervous – along with nutrition, health,
embryology, the immune system, and the major organs. It also provides a brief
history of medicine and an introduction to cell structure and DNA. Activities
within the fourteen lessons include finding blood type, making a cell model,
and building a skeleton. Oh! And be prepared! Your student will be looking for
household bacteria. ~ Janice
