The Human Heart: An Online Exploration from The Franklin Institute, made possible by Unisys From the moment it begins beating until the moment it stops, the human heart works tirelessly. In an average lifetime*, the heart beats more than two and a half billion times, without ever pausing to rest. Like a pumping machine, the heart provides the power needed for life. This life-sustaining power has, throughout time, caused an air of mystery to surround the heart. Modern technology has removed much of the mystery, but there is still an air of fascination and curiosity.

Montessori-Inspired Skeleton Unit Human anatomy can be a fascinating subject, and many children especially enjoy studying bones. A variety of Montessori-inspired skeleton activities can be used to create a multi-level skeleton unit for preschoolers on up. October is a fun time to study skeletons. While it might be most logical to study the skeletal system as a part of a whole human anatomy unit, the weeks before Halloween add special interest to the study. Of course, a skeleton unit study is great at any time. Here are some wonderful Montessori-inspired skeleton printables and activities I found online: Homeschooling in Heels: Human Body Lapbook January 2011 Update: Just finished some upgrades to the blog, including getting all the lapbooking templates on a more reliable file hosting site. This one has been problematic to download in the past but should work perfectly now (and if not, please let me know!) You can download the template here. Happy homeschooling!!!
Human Body System – Heart and Circulatory System Activities October 17, 2013 at 7:19 am , by Liesl Den This week, I’m out of commission. I’m having some pretty major ear surgery this week and I plan to lock the bedroom door and let my amazing and wonderful in-laws watch the kids while I recover. In the meantime, I wanted to leave you with something to look through. I picked out some old posts that might be of interest: Our study of the heart and circulatory system started with a listen to our own heartbeats.
What if you stopped drinking water? What would actually happen to your body if you stopped drinking water, including all beverages that contain water, like juices, soft drinks, and tea? Let's just say it wouldn't be pretty - your body is made up of 60 percent water, which is reason enough to make sure you're constantly replenishing your supply. All that water works really hard to ensure that you continue functioning properly, by transporting vital nutrients and hormones to where they need to go, cushioning our joints, regulating our internal temperature, and lubricating our eyeballs. But we lose a whole lot of it through processes such as urination - about 1.5 litres a day - defecation, and sweating, so we need to know when we should be upping our intake. That's where the 'thirst centre' of the brain, which is located in the hypothalamus, comes in. So what happens when you don't?

Circulation and Respiration We have begun our unit on living systems in science (thank GOSH because Earth and Physical science have quite literally killed me this year...seriously, I feel like the most incompetent teacher when I teach science...but I digress...). Our main focus for the past week before Spring Break was the circulatory and respiratory systems. I thought I would share some of the things we have been doing, in case some of you are in the same unit yourselves. To get us started, we watched a few BrainPOP videos about circulation and blood. I found these in the HEALTH section, not the science section. The kids were very enthralled with these videos (they ALWAYS are really) There was quite a lot of information in them, which got us started on the right foot.
