Exploring Creation with Human Anatomy and Physiology is a homeschool science curriculum for elementary students. In this course, your student will do a deep-dive into the unique design of their own body–both inside and out–and how they can keep it working well! They’ll also explore a range of topics such as human DNA, cell anatomy, and the body systems through the curriculum filled with vivid graphics, interactive lessons, and hands-on projects.

Curriculum Overview

We believe that your child’s education is at their best when their learning begins with curiosity. That’s why this course was designed for elementary students with no prerequisite. We use the practical concepts and things in their world to help them learn and experience that science isn’t just a class–it’s a means for them to discover their world! 

Apologia’s Exploring Creation with Human Anatomy and Physiology course takes both an academic and practical approach to best teach your student about the human body. As they engage with the lessons, projects, and experiments, your student will better understand the complexity and purposes of the human body’s design, and how best to take care of their own body. 

This course begins with a brief history of medicine and then gives your student a peek into cells and DNA. Using vivid graphics and hands-on activities to make learning come to life, your student will study and explore various body systems, nutrition and health, how God designed their immune system to protect them, and what makes them a unique creation of God.

As they work their way through the course, your student will enjoy creating their own personalized human figure and adding to it as they learn about each of the body’s organs. They will also enjoy conducting scientific experiments and projects, such as testing the bacteria content around the house, finding their blood type, creating a cell model from Jello and candy, and even building a stethoscope!

Lesson Plans and Materials

There are 14 lessons in this one-year Human Anatomy and Physiology course.  Detailed lesson plans as well as a suggested daily schedule are included in the student notebooking journal (sold separately). This will set you and your student up for success as they work through the course, while also providing flexibility to meet the needs of your student and your family.

Packed with vivid photos and a variety of hands-on activities and experiments that bring Human Anatomy and Physiology to life, the student textbook and the notebooking journal team up to provide engaging hands-on activities help them solidify the concepts they are learning. The hard-cover textbook and notebooking journal is recommended for your student to make the most of this course.

Loving it

Reading is at a good pace for my 9 year old, background sounds make it more enjoyable and voice is pleasing to listen to.

This is for next semester

We won’t be using this until the Spring semester, but I’m excited to be able to just click on the spot we are at, rather than having to work my way through the CD!

Soveida P.

Great investment!

Audiobook is a life and time saver! It is amazing! Thank you!

Jonathan C.

Great Addition!

So happy with the audio purchase. Will be buying the audio for Astronomy next! This really helps my son work a bit more independently and saves my voice!
