    Welcome Message: Week 4
     
    Message from Mr. K
     
    This week we will adventure in the heart and lungs. Probablly the most important systems aside from the brain in my opinon. The heart and lungs do amazing things and as long as we keep them healthy we can live a very long and healthy life. This weeks unit you will take a look at the functions, the parts of each system and what they do for us. You will be responsibile to complete a class blog, a pulse experimeint, and a cardio expermient. Hope you enjoy the activities and have fun doing them. I want to thank everyone for their hard work and effort in this online format. You are all working very hard and hope your learning some amazing things about your body! Although we won't get to see each other this school year, I truly look forward to seeing you all next year!
