We completed our human body unit today. It was really fun and the kids learned a bunch.
We finished our human body lapbook. It was our biggest one yet. Alex is super proud. He takes such pride in all of the lapbooks that he had created. He often goes back and looks them over and he loves showing them to people who come to visit. I love lapbooks and am so glad that we discovered them!
He really enjoyed todays activity. We traced his body on craft paper. He cut out and glued on some organs (he was confused with the lungs and the heart …not sure which to put above which). He also glued on words of body parts to the correct location (knees, chin, ankle..). I am going to cut it out, fold it up, and put it in a folder on the back of his lapbook. **Note: If I do this activity again I will use masking tape for bones!**
Some other projects that I would like to do in future human body studies are:
Backbone model (using a pool noodle)
Ava worked on preschool Valentines activity. It is free and you can find it here!
Last week I asked Alex what he wanted to learn about next, he told me “how people got here”. I just ordered a bunch of books on the Big Bang Theory and Evolution. I am also looking through Netflix documentaries on the topics. I figure we will start at the beginning of time and go from there.
Hmmmm…I am beginning to sound like an unschooler!
I love homeschooling.
