Human Body Systems

Human Body Systems BUNDLE

Learning about the major Human Body Systems

Each year, usually in the spring semester, our family has learned about one of the major Human Body Systems. We started studying the human body when the kids were in elementary.  We’ve circled back around to study these units again and I’ve added updates to each of these packets as my kids have gotten older (so as with many of our packets, these packets will suit a wide range of ages!)

Scroll down for lots of pictures – both of the worksheets/notebook pages as well as some of our hands-on activities! Also, scroll down for FAQ (frequently asked questions).Human Body Systems BUNDLE

We usually started with an overview of what Human Body Systems are and how they work (in general) from cells, tissues, organs to body systems. We’ve gone over this general set most every year. 🙂

Human Body Systems and Organs Worksheets

From there we moved on to a specific Human Body system

  • Skeletal System (bones, joints, tendons, etc.) – This unit has lots of hands-on activity ideas!
  • Digestive System – this unit also has a lot of hands on activities!
  • Circulatory System – with a really fun hands-on activity to trace the path of blood throughout the body!
  • Muscular System – three main types of muscles, voluntary and involuntary muscles, how these three muscle groups work, and the functions of these muscles.
  • Nervous System –  covers the functions of the central and peripheral nervous systems, the anatomy of the brain, neurons and more
  • Reproductive System
  • Endocrine System – we’re working on that this year! Coming soon!

These can be purchased individually or in one of the Human Body BUNDLE Options that includes these packets:

These units can be purchased individually or together in our Human Body Bundle.    I included some photos of these packets below.

Our packets are pdf digital downloads. After your purchase, remember to check your PayPal email address for the download link.  It will come automatically from SendOwl (the delivery service I use); feel free to email me if you have any trouble! ~Liesl

There are a couple of different Human Body BUNDLE options and I wanted to create a new page to show what options are available (like I’ve done for the Earth Science Bundles, Biology Bundle of 5, Chemistry Bundle and Big Animal Bundle, and Spelling Bundle).  You can purchase these units separately or in various combinations depending on your need. Just so you know, the Cells Unit is included in the Biology Bundle of 5 or in Human Body BUNDLE OPTION 2.

This page answers some Frequently Asked Questions. I have also placed answer to some questions about making purchases down below. We use PayPal (a secure site) to process payments and SendOwl to automatically send the download link. (Again, check your PayPal email address for the download link!)

Generally as homeschoolers, we covered just one or two major body systems each year before moving on to another science topic.)

Not included in the HUMAN BODY BUNDLES, but if you have younger kids you might be interested in this unit:

Five Senses Unit - Worksheets Sorting Cards Interactive Notebook Activities and MoreFAQ: Do you need to purchase any other books or materials to go with these packets? No, these materials will work with any books or curriculum resources you have on hand. The answers to various notebook pages and worksheets are provided.  We tended to get a lot (10-20!!) books from the library and we’d read through those as we covered a particular topic.  When my kids were younger, we did a number of activities from the Body Book (which can be found here affiliate link). I photocopied things onto cardstock. For example, the kids made a skeleton that was about 3 feet once it was put together! They really enjoyed doing that, though it is not necessary to purchase that!
