So, what have we been up to for the last couple of weeks?

Well, we had science group where we explored the lymphatic system.  We reviewed all of its components and watched videos on the immune system, viruses and bacteria, and elephantiasis.  We began working on the public health merit badge by defining immunization and vector and we talked about Zika and other viruses.
We also had history group where we continued exploring the U.S. Constitution.  This time we examined Article 2 regarding the executive branch.  We watched the relevant episode of Constitutional Literacy and conversed a lot about current events.
