Human Body Unit: Starting Off Again with the Skeleton
Last spring we started learning a bit about the human body, but then we stopped as summer activities took over. We have re-started our human body unit.
Before I knew I was going to luck into a zillion human body kits (see my post about being lucky!), I bought the Squishy Human Body by Smart Lab. The kids just loved this! We talked about how the skeleton protects all of our organs and then lifted off the rib cage and started taking out the squishy organs. What a great learning kit!
|It even looks real, doesn’t it?!|
|We are using the Human Body Copywork by Homeschool Bits as our core for this unit. At $1.50 for 200+ pages this was a bargain! Here’s a sample if you’re interested.|
|I brought out our human body puzzle and ED and DD have done this a number of times.|
|The kids spent one day cutting out all the parts to the skeleton. While they worked, they listed to our CD of Story of the World-volume 2. (We listened to the first book this summer in the car on our various trips.)|
|The book had a number of discussion questions, so we went over those as we put the body together. Did you know the skull has 29 bodies? Do you know what the backbone protects? the spinal chord… things like that.|
