Studying Human Anatomy ~ Science Sunday

Science Sunday

As of this week we’re about midway through our Human Anatomy unit in our Nancy Larson Science 1 and the kids are loving it! Kaleb has even been sitting in on our lessons and cracking us up with what he remembers from our studies.

We’ve been talking about muscles, joints, bones and had a little ‘hands-on’ fun this week learning about our skeletal system and bones with some x-rays!

The x-rays in the kit are actual child-sized, so we had fun comparing our skeleton size to the size of one of us ~ just about the size of Zachary.


The x-rays were great because we could see the various joints all over our bodies and talk about the bones that we’ve been learning about {which one is the largest bone in our body and how many bones there are in our bodies}.

imageOne of the books that we’re using as a part of our unit is Your Insides by Joanna Cole {available used from Amazon}. It is also a part of the Nancy Larson Science 1 kit. The book offers a look at what goes on inside your body and also features several ‘see-through’ pages giving a layered look at muscles, bones, heart/lungs, brain, nerves and more.

Don't forget to check out some other great science ideas at Science Sunday hosted by Ticia at Adventures in Mommydom.
