  • Birth Defects
    No two human beings have ever been exactly alike. Every human being is unique. This uniqueness is first established by the combination of the parents' genes
  • Birth Defects - Fetal Alcohol Syndrome
    This can be 2 separate units or 1 extended unit.
    Birth Defects can be influenced by heredity, the environment, or a combination of both. Birth defects will have certain characteristics and treatments, or ways they might be prevented. Fetal Alcohol Syndrome is one type of birth defect.
  • Genetics, Heredity, Environment
    Each person is a unique individual. Genetics is the study of how traits are passed from past generations to a child. The students will learn basic genetic information.
  • Nutrition and Exercise During Pregnacy
    From the day you were born, you began preparing yourself to become a parent. Preparation for parenthood does not begin when a couple decides to have a baby. It is a life long process that involves good eating habits and physical health which will someday influence your children.
