In a Nutshell

Students have finished the Efficiency of Human Body Systems Unit. They are now working on the end of unit CAP. The CAP is titled "Doctor, Doctor, Give Me the News." Students will be understanding the characteristics of disease and ways to manage our lifestyles to maintain healthy living.
