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!!! Original Post: Okay, I love this lapbooking thing. This one corresponds with our human body unit study, so it touches on each of the topics we've taught: external anatomy, internal anatomy, DNA, cells, nutrition, exercise and the brain / five senses. 3 file folders (one for the book and one for each flap)Print out of template2 small paper brads1 fastener (we used this to hold all the handouts for this unit)Scissors, glue, hole punches, ribbon, markers & paintFor the cover: I punched two little holes, tied a ribbon to each and made a bow to hold the lapbook closed. Outside of top flap: When you open up the cover, you'll see the outside of the top flap. Whew!
My Incredible Body - A Kid's App to Learn about the Human Body 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. Explore the heart. Soon, your fascination and curiosity may lead to understanding and respect. To learn even more about the heart, try taking a look at some recommended resource materials, enrichment activities, and a brief glossary. Kids can learn more about the heart at Discovery Camp at The Franklin Institute!

The axial skeleton contains all the bones in the trunk of your body (that’s the middle part of your body that includes your spine). Bones can be further classified into four categories. You would look really funny without bones. It’s important to take care of your bones and keep them healthy. For example, you can help keep your bones healthy by making sure you get enough calcium. You can also keep your bones healthy by exercising.
