Human Body System – Heart and Circulatory System Activities | The Homeschool Den 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. Heart as a Pump: We did this experiment: When your heart beats it acts like a tennis ball filled with water. Our bodies have 5.6 liters of blood. Circulatory System Activity: This is how Harold looked before we started. We sat down together and I explained how blood that has no oxygen heads to the heart and into the lungs. After we drew the lines — arteries and veins — together, I got two tiles. After we all took a number of turns doing that, we piled blue/red or red/blue tiles all over Harold’s body to show the path of blood. Blood Activity:

Free Online Games 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 videos mentioned how the circulatory system was the delivery system of the body and that all systems were connected to this one. book. We then used the Easy Make & Learn Projects: Human Body (Grades 2-4) book and created a model of the heart. Another great find (that the kids had a blast playing) was the Circulation Game from Ellen McHenry's homeschooling website. So there you have it.

Elearning The Boy who Cried Wolf Once there was a shepherd boy who had to look after a flock of sheep. One day, he felt bored and decided to play a trick on the villagers. He shouted, “Help! Wolf! When they reached him, they asked, “Where is the wolf?” Then, some time later, a wolf went into the field. Finally, the villagers went to look. Moral : Never play such pranks that can lead you into trouble.
