November 10- Body Systems: Skeletal
Our skeletal system is the foundation of our bodies. It gives us our shape, and a strong structure to support us. But what might other non-human skeletons look like? What about creatures without skeletons? This class will get down to the “bare bones” of this body system, and it’s very important function throughout many different species.
January 12- Body Systems: Respiratory
Respiration is vital to our survival. Each breath of air we take provides our bodies with oxygen, which is necessary for many of our cells to keep us alive. All living things need oxygen, whether it is from the air or from the sea. Hold your breath and dive into the different and surprising ways that animals use their respiratory system.
March 9- Body Systems: Digestive
To keep our strength and energy up, we must eat food with vital nutrients and proteins. Different animals eat different types of foods and need specialized digestive systems to break down the food into nutrients. Come join us as we BREAK it down and discover how various species digest their diets.
May 11- Body Systems: Reproductive
In the previous classes, we talked about how different body systems help animals survive. In this class we will talk about why survival is so important; to pass on their genes to the next generation. Let’s jump in and learn all about different ways marine species reproduce.
