Tour of the museum 1:00pm – 2:15pm

For a group visit we provide a moderate amount of structure.

We have designed a “scavenger hunt” designed to encourage observation.

The goal of the visit is to increase motivation or interest, and to spark curiosity about human anatomy and medicine.

Please note that the specimens in the museum are human organs and skeletons.

For the location of the museum, please see the website at

https://www.mcgill.ca/medicalmuseum/

There is no entrance fee for the Museum. However, we rely heavily on donations for everything we do and, although not necessary, a donation would be appreciated.

General Science Class

General Science Class from The Learning Tree Co-op meets once a week from October to May to complete labs and test from the textbook Exploring Creation with General Science.

Capture

The text is written for students in 7th grade but can also be used for 8th graders. The  course covers such topics as the scientific method, designing experiments, simple machines, archaeology, geology, palaeontology, biology, and human anatomy and physiology.

Optional components to complete at home include a textbook and student notebook. Audio and DVD versions of the textbook are also available. For sample pages see this link.

The co-op has purchased a licence to distribute a digital version of the course labs and notebooks to registered students. If you have not received a copy, please see your teacher.

A weekly schedule, class notes and homework assignments are published here. Completion of homework assignments, scoring by the teacher and tests are at the parent’s discretion. Progress reports are published twice a year for those who wish to include them in a government report. The rubric used to score science labs is available here
