We are using all the resources we can. We have quite a few for the human body.
We are continuing on with our My Body book. Adding to our cut-outs every day or two.
This week we added our muscles, heart, and brain.
We learned about the skin by making a strange eatable skin mold. A little too much sugar and red dye for my taste buds, but it was a lot of fun. I found the recipe at Oklahoma After School Network.
We also read Your Skin and Mine by Paul Showers.
We read a number of books this week. Muscles by Seymour Simon.
Hear Your Heart by Paul Showers. GREAT book.
We also read A Drop of Blood by Paul Showers. Equally as great. I love the Let's-Read-and-Find-Out Science books.
We tried to put together this cool 'Visible Man.'
That is, until I realized it was a TRUE model and needed cement and everything!
We still had fun looking at all the body parts, but we are going to have to put the model together sometime in the future (it's a bit above us now).
I also found this super cool online website that helps with learning all about the skeleton. Charger, especially, loved it!
This next week we are playing the game 'get ready for Easter.' And also 'look through what we have to do to finish our work by the end of April (last week of May at the latest). So, I don't know if there will be a wrap up or not!
I hope you have had a great week!
