The Systems of the Body - Overview

Can you believe it's been two years since we last studied the systems of the body?

Here are your links again.

This is a great interactive website for learning the various systems. Move your mouse over the labels to see the system.

This is a silly little game for learning a few main parts of each system.

Take a quiz about the circulatory system.

Computer Lesson 2 - Getting Started with Email

Hello, students of the seniors' class!

This week we got back into our lessons on navigating the health system. Friday is our second instalment of our new computer literacy course.

Two weeks from now, we will be learning how to move files from one location to another using a USB drive and also by using email and cloud-based storage services. If you do not already have an email account, I will help you open one today.

This video is about avoiding some of the risks involved in using email.

Our New Computer Course (Every Friday)

Hello, students of the seniors' class!

You circulated a petition and nine of you signed it. You told me that you wish to change our Friday "short, easy story" and pronunciation lesson to a computer literacy course. That's a fine idea!

First learn some new words.

Here is a website that will help us with our first few lessons as we begin with an overview of what a computer is, the parts of the computer, and some basic terminology.

Can you label the parts of this computer?

Practice your MOUSE skills.

This is an excellent worksheet for learning the parts of a computer.

This is the book we will be using in our course. It is designed for ESL students like you!
