Anatomy and Physiology
This was my favorite class in high school, and it is what I consider the second most important class you ever take.
The Emperor argues that English is the second most important, since you will always need to communicate, but I disagree. You can move some where where no one speaks English, but wherever you go, you'll take your body with you.
The most important, of course, would be theology, since you'll need that even when you've moved where you don't take your body with you!
At any rate, I have 8 teens and we are having a great time learning about the human body. We meet twice a week: once for lecture, once for lab. We should finish up the A & P around Thanksgiving, and then we will add on a 5 class Bioethics course in December.
We are doing an amazing 13 dissections! What you are seeing on that middle shelf is each kids dissection kit and specimen bag.
The aprons and gloves go with the lab stuff. I've found that lab coats are expensive, but aprons do a fine job fairly cheaply. Plus they are easy to customize with permanent markers!
