Studying the Human Body

During our second semester, the younger boys and I are studying the Human Body using Apologia’s Human Anatomy and Physiology student book and notebooking journals. I also have the student workbooks for Considering God’s Creation, so I have some great resources as we learn about the systems of the body, and how they work together.

Here’s a glimpse as we put the skeleton and internal organs in our project.

I laid out their outline bodies and the stack of bones and organs for them to sort through and place.

They did a great job with the skeleton.

There was a lot more discussion on where the various internal organs fit in the body. At one point, one of the bodies had an extra pancreas. Another one of the bodies ended up permanently missing a kidney. We decided that a person can live with only one kidney, so we didn’t get too upset about missing one.

 

This was a fun activity that helped us review the parts of the body.
