Human Body Unit Study
It’s never too early to start studying the human body. This Human Body Unit Study is comprehensive but flexible. You can use as few or as many of the resources listed as you’d like! I love that it’s adaptable for little ones in preschool but you can add to it for older kids in elementary grades.
Human Body Unit Study Printable Workbook
The pages in this workbook cover:
- parts of the body
- the five senses
- circulatory and digestive systems
- writing practice
- and more!
Our Human Body Workbook is designed for kids up to second grade, but you could easily make this more challenging by turning the notebooking pages into essay questions, and having your child label more body parts than just the basic few outlined.
Other ideas include:
- Write facts on the back of the puzzle cut outs.
- Add extra pages to the circulatory and digestive system cutouts to make them into mini booklets.
- Write a funny story about each of the senses, using the notebooking pages.
Human Body Learning Resources
Using file folders taped, glued, or stapled together, create a lapbook using our printables and others you find on the web. Lapbooks can be simple with just one or two folders, or you can make them more like an actual book with several folders put together. That is one of the joys of the freedom of homeschooling: you can make it easier for little kids, and more difficult for older kids. Teaching more than one grade at a time is easy peasy with unit studies and lapbooks!
If your child is more of a visual learner, these videos about the human body will help round out your unit study. The Homeschool Den has some experiments and other hands-on activities relating to the human body. The kids will love the egg/brain one!
HS Printables has an entire section on Anatomy that fits well with our Human Body Unit Study.
If you’re into fun/gross science, be sure to make these eyeballs!
Visit your local library to see if they have books you can check out for your human body unit study. It’ll be a nice field trip for everyone!
