Here is a peek at our unit on the Human Body!
Our Book List:
The Big Beginner Books About Me, by Dr. Seuss
My Five Senses, by Aliki
From Head to Toe, by Eric Carle
How Many Teeth?, by Paul Showers
My Hands, by Aliki
Magic School Bus: Inside the Human Body, by Joanna Cole
We worked on it over the course of 4 weeks, and Haden really enjoyed it. 🙂 We used the Me & My Body book from our Explore and Learn Series as our spine for the unit. Our lapbook from HomeschoolShare turned out to be our largest one yet! We had to use 3 file folders to put it together, and we didn’t even do all of the mini-books in the pdf.
Along with our reading & working on our lapbook, Haden worked on making a model of the human body, labeling major organs, body parts, creating some bones and blood vessels, and of course a happy face.
Somewhere along the way we made Apple Smiles as a snack, and watched this human body rap video. I thought about making this cake, but never got around to it. I might just make it for our Not-Back-to-School party next week! 🙂
