Sixth-graders Begin Human Body Unit

As #RemoteLearning started, so did sixth-graders’ human body unit! Science teachers Jennifer Licata and Karen Glum’s students began their study of the human body by learning about the respiratory system. “It was kind of timely!” Licata said. “When we came back from spring break, we focused on viruses and transmission and we explored the graphs related to the curve and flattening the curve.” Students also watched a video of a real bronchoscopy via Zoom. “Students got to see inside the nose, throat, trachea, the functioning of the voice box, and inside the bronchi and bronchioles,” Licata said. “They saw how the doctor could collect samples of cells for examination and biopsy. We watch this every year but seeing their faces on my screen was priceless!”
