Would you like to see how my Anatomy and Physiology course is organized and exactly what's included? I've had many requests for an overview or "scope and sequence" for my Full Year Anatomy and Physiology Course. So here it is!

You are welcome to use this overview to create your own syllabus or scope and sequence document, but please follow the included terms of use.

What teachers are saying about this curriculum:

  • "This resource was an absolute lifesaver for me! I used the Powerpoints, worksheets, and activities in this bundle as the bulk of my curriculum for the year."
  • "The Powerpoint presentations and worksheets are amazing, and editable so you can add and remove whatever you need for it to work in your classroom!"
  • "This is my go-to for my anatomy class."
  • "Well organized, easy to use and very detailed."
  • "Very straight forward and to the point, which is hard to do with the abundance of material in an anatomy class. I can not thank you enough. What a great purchase!!"

**If you'd like to purchase the PowerPoints, Illustrated Notes, or Activities separately, please see these links:

-Anatomy Illustrated Notes Bundle

-Human Body PowerPoints

-Human Anatomy Lab & Activity Bundle

For more details about what is included for each system, please see the list below.
