Short description of what the students learn in that subject:
9th Grade: covers 4 main topics: geology, physics, chemistry, and biology. My students learn about earthquakes, volcanoes, the periodic table, chemical reactions, and properties of matter, as well as forces and motion. The first semsester is project driven. At the end of the first semester, my student's will create a a lesson plan via powerpoint to teach sixth graders topics of geology and physics. During the second semester my students will explore  the  periodic table and chemical reactions. Here they will also learn the proper format for writing a lab report.
12th Grade: . The class is a combination of anatomy and physiology, where the students learn about  the body systems of many members of the animal kingdom in terms of their structure and function.
