The seventh graders are ready to experience the quintessential kingdom, the human being. The myriad changes which are going on within their own bodies awaken a profound interest in the Physiology block.
Students present the study of vital human systems, including respiration, digestion, and circulation. As they learn to appreciate the magnificent functioning of these systems, they begin to understand the human being within the context of earth and universe. Human physiology helps students to develop a balanced and co-existent point of view from within their own individuality.
“Masterpiece of natural architecture, one can only become lost in admiration. No less can one admire the miraculous structure of the human brain or heart, or of the totality of the human physical body”Rudolf Steiner
